Default Borla Mufflers

Does anyone know what the difference is between Borla'* line of mufflers, the Turbo, and the PRO XS mufflers? On my Riviera I had the Turbo mufflers and the exhaust was deep and very mellow sounding. It sounded great.. I was thinking about the PRO XS mufflers for my car now because they're cheaper and slightly smaller. I just am uneasy that they might sound ricerish. I've never heard Borla'* on a DOHC engine.. just pushrods and they sound great on the pushrods. Any advice? also, the Tubo mufflers are Center in/Offset out. I need Offset in/Center out. can you just simply turn the muffler around? I know nothing about exhaust systems. Thanks!

You'll want to look at the Borla website to find out if they're reversible or not.... there is no hard and fast rule for mufflers, as some are reversible and others are not. As for the nature of the sound, I can't help you. Have you tried searching for Borla sound clips? I'm positive you can find something out on the net somewhere.

Borlas are a straight thru mufflers just like Magnaflow. They are both reversable.
