    borla header review

    hey all so I purchased a borla header.
    the quality and fitment was great welds look good as well i didn't have any problems with the install.
    although i think if your new at cars this might be a bit of pain.hardest part i would say is getting the old header to up pipe bolts off. and i would suggest spraying pb blaster on exhaust bolts and nuts anytime your removing any part of the exhaust system it makes the job alot easier.

    id also highly reccomend getting new gaskets as well.
    butt dyno says its making more power.
    defiantly feels like i gained some torque also i noticed it spooled sooner felt good up top as well im sure it will be even better after i have my tuner adjust the tune
    this is an uel header i think it was very worth it.im happy with my purchase
    now to pics!!!!

    Based on that statement, I don't believe it's been accounted for yet.
