If anyone has a set of these in good shape, new or used, I would be interested in them vs buying the same ones with the Borla logo on them now being sold.

Thanks,

Looks like old marketplace threads are cleaned up but Muscle Motors Performance Inc, a supporting Vendor was making a new production run with Borla last spring or so. My guess is they still have them new.

Anders in Europe was selling a set for a long time but having to ship it back was $$$

You might need to call on Monday.

I bought mine there, Had them polished and ceramic coated and installed by Shadowman, Though I don't believe they are the hardest headers to install.

Love them.

Yes, still have mine. But probably cheaper getting them from a vendor in US if they are available.

I have them also from Muscle. Love them and they sound sweet. If you want to be quiet you can, but if you let the pedal fall it is really loud!

Um, same with me, but they finally arrive and at a decent price.

Now that's funny!

In my neck of the woods we would call it a Macy's vs Gimbe'ls thing!

Quick follow-up. Got the Ford Racing mufflers on Friday from Muscle Motors. In perfect shape I decided to install them this weekend.

Just for future reference, it is possible to R&R the exhaust and cat sections without removal of the clamshell and rear facia. I did have to remove the passenger side axle flange bolts to get the cat section out and back in but found out I needed to do that anyway to fix a leak at the splines in the flange.

Can someone 'in the know' tell me what the torque specs for the axel flange bolts are? I know its a two step process but I found 2 different values in the service manual and yet a third when searching the forum. I did 25 and 44 ftlbs but can redo the torque if needed without much diffeculty. They were nowhere near that tight on removal.

Sound is not that much louder than the cats. Just slightly different note. Almost the same at idle.
