new exhaust ordered

Pulled the trigger on the borla split exhaust.... was really torn after reading so many threads, but when I got it for about $650 delivered I couldnt say no. Had to order from quadratec, thankfully something actually shipped same day from them.

I'm actually off tomorrow, so I will get some pics up after a wash. Not as throaty as I hoped, so I'm already looking into headers and down pipe.

Not throaty enough? Wow. I thought my Borla was too throaty when I first got it installed but I love it now. Mine is not the dual though so that could be a difference.

If I buy a new exhaust system it has to be dual (for looks of course) as it won't make a difference in performance over the one outlet in the Borla.

New Headers = Going Deaf (possibly) and you still might not get that V8 sound. I've been in my 'gearhead' friends's vehicles with shorty/long tube headers and I wished I had my Peltor Ultimate 10 earmuffs that I use for shooting my Desert Eagle. Piercing and way too loud. Maybe someone with a headers on a 3.6 Wrangler can chime in but in V8 Mustang/Camaro's that I've been in with headers has been punishing to the ears. My friend's Camaro set off a couple car alarms when we went out!

I know someone who got a ticket for "excessive noise" due to this. Cops here love to write tickets even more than eatin' donuts.
