My car sounds like that 1993 bonneville ssei with magnaflows... Hopefully Ill get to replacing that rear manifold because its really pissing my neighbors off =)

BTW, The borla'* sound really nice, I was going to go with borla on the saturn but ended up going with HKS cat back with the turbo.

Nice sound. I love Borla mufflers.
It will sound even better with headers.

Are you still running the stock Cat and resonator and what size pipes did you go with

It upgraded the Y split to 2.25" from 2" and from the muffler to the tips is 3" to accomodate the 3.5" tip inlet. Everything else is stock. I thought about getting a shorter resonator so that they could move the entire exhaust back about half an inch because the way it is now, the system is too long and the tips stick out 1/2" from the bumper.

it sounds good inside. It has a much deeper tone to it. Kind of sounds like a V8 under normal acceleration. Plant your foot in it and alls you hear is whine, the exhaust is quiet at high RPM'*. Haven't noticed any kind of vibration, it'* still really quiet inside, just a deeper tone is noticed.
