I have wondered this.....Ive even thought of buying a cheap resi delete H pipe and a Borla Resonator and working on it myself making it up ready to slot in like a resi delete ??I realize the pipes may be slightly different size but the exhaust shop can handle that. Will the pipes line up or are the closer together or further apart than stock?
borla resonator has an H inside instead of an X. I installed mine today after catless longtubes.Just installed mine a week or 2 back and the Borla resonator that comes with the Borla Touring catback (resonator part #60561) goes right into the header pipes so no problem fitting.
Both the stock exhaust and the Borla resonator (or x-pipe I imagine as well) are 4.5" apart center to center of pipe at that point.
Be aware though that the Borla resonator is NOT an X inside ... just straight through on both sides ... my choice would be to put a Magnaflow resonated x-pipe (eg. 14385) at that location (better tone and helps takes rasp away) but they're 4.25" apart at that location.
I get a wee bit of pop at lower revs when decelerating I could do without that I'm pretty sure the resonated x would not have (used those in the past and LOVE the tone they give).
Interesting ... may call them to see what the difference is in sound - I'd thing the X will "smooth" the tone more over an H so less rasp (not that the Borla Touring has any really).Also I spoke with Borla and they said that they redesigned the 60561 and the new design is now an X.
I just received mine and it has the H, which is what I was looking for. I understood that the H would be less raspy?? When I spoke with them they didn't seem think there was much difference between the two. I'm curious as to why they changed it.Interesting ... may call them to see what the difference is in sound - I'd thing the X will "smooth" the tone more over an H so less rasp (not that the Borla Touring has any really).
