    I'm currently running a res. delete and h pipe on my 2019 gt and am curious with Borla Ataks. If you're running them what are your thoughts? I've seen videos and it sounds good, but videos don't capture the true sound. I know they're loud, but what about tone, rasp, how they are at cruising speeds, etc..? I'd rather get some opinions rather then the videos I've seen. One guy on a video told me they're deep sounding, but have a nice high pitch. Huh?
    The h pipe sounds great in normal driving mode, but in sport plus at higher rpms it sounds higher pitched and more like an x pipe to me.
    Curious to thoughts and any info. would be great.

    While not the same, I do have an FRPP X-pipe and Borla S-type AB's. There is no way I would put Ataks on it. It would be way, way too loud.

    I do have active exhaust so I'm honestly not worried about being to loud. I'm more worried about it being way to high pitched.

    So you are going to have a choice between loud and loud exhaust? Is the open exhaust high pitched?

    Not with an h pipe in normal driving mode. It can get higher pitched in sport plus on higher rpms.
    The h pipe is slightly louder then stock so I know the Ataks would be way different. I have to drive in track mode all of the time though to really benefit. Normal sounds no different then stock to me.

    Borla Atak is my favorite on a car with no headers. S-type with headers. If anyone wants a great discount on Borla, call our office at 505-672-8112

    Not exactly a good way to sell me something when I'm trying to get questions and answered and more feedback. Favorites tell me nothing.

    Attacks sound good on stock headers. While raspy the drone is minimal. Comparable to Corsa Xtremes on stock headers.

    I have a '19 GT with an Active Atak Catback system and the Borla Resonator. I can send you a sound clip if you like, but imo it's sounds awesome with the active setup. I can quiet it down when I want, but I run Track mode when I want to turn heads. No drone, and great build quality.

    I have ATAKs on my 2018 GT daily driver and really like them. I had Corsa Sports previously but hated the rasp. The ATAKs are much deeper and I don't notice any rasp. They are fairly loud on cold start but quiet down pretty quickly. No drone either. They are plenty quite inside to have a conversation with a passenger or on bluetooth. However, when you go WOT you will be heard which can sometimes be inconvenient hahaha.

    I have wondered how they would sound with an h-pipe instead but honestly I'm pretty pleased with them using the Borla x-pipe.

    If you can send me that clip it would be great. I know it wont sound the same in person, but the more I hear from clips the better. Everything I've found so far varies. lol
    Yours still has a resonator? Everything I've heard so far doesn't.

    I have two videos up, one from the install and one review video. Why do I mention the install video. Have look at the build quality.....


    I did not get any performance gains on the 0-60, 201/402m according to my Dragy

    Jump to 10:35 if you just want to hear some sweet sound.

    I do.

    Great sound. Some drones.
    Cruising is slightly loud but not bad at all.
    When you open tho....music.
    Crispy sound with some good deep note.
    And...12-14whp gain dyno tested.
