Today I ordered the Borla XR-1 Sportsman muffler, a set of 8mm Taylor plug wires and a set of NGK v power plugs from Summit. I ordered the Magnaflow S.S. Cat and 3.5" S.S. tip from hottexhaust.com .

All said and done parts and labor will be half ($500) what the dealer wanted for a stock system and cat and that includes the plugs and wires. Can't wait! The D has been down for a couple of weeks with a plugged catalytic converter. Should feel like a new truck now that it will be able to breathe again! :rck:

Next issue to tackle will be to go with a CAI or the 14" round air cleaner. I really like the looks of a V8 without all the tubing. Have to read more threads on here to make my mind up!

Tim, got your PM but it looks like it was a day too late for me to respond.

To answer your question, it's a mellow muffler until you stomp on it, the sound will be great. I love my Borla and would definitely do that purchase again.

Enjoy!

Thanks Kevin. I also had pm'd Rick with the same questions and asked a local muffler shop about the Borla. The comments were enough to convince me! I actually got the Summit order today so I am just waiting on the cat. Should save a little weight too over the stock muffler.

Summit was cool, got the order quickly and got a hat and two packs of stickers too! Not goin on my truck but definately on my workbench and toolbox.

Got the Magnaflow cat and tip yesterday. Have to say that both Summit and hottexhaust.com provided great service and a great price. I was a bit disappointed that Summit advertises free shipping and then charges $10 for handling but it was still a good price. Hottexhaust had totally free shipping and handling.

I think I will pay a visit to yorkdyno.com for a basic dyno test after the goodies are installed!

I think this muffler is next on my list of things to get, my current muffler is falling apart. I had to cut a layer that was just hanging off last month. Any suggestions on the tip I should get. Should I leave the tip stock or get a stainless one? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Congrats Tim on your new purchases. I just got my new Borla muffler delivered a couple of days ago :D . I'm going to try and get some sound clips before and after....

Have to wait for next week before I can fix it though :mad: working this weekend.

hey whats the part # on the tip u got for the XR-1 thinkning of getting one, how come you also got a cat-back with it?
This is the Magnaflow tip I got, http://hottexhaust.com/detail.asp?product_id=35105

I didn't get a cat back system, I got a cat and a muffler. The cat melted from a plug wire induced misfire.

Thanks, same to you. I hope to get it all installed the next day or two. I don't have the patience for exhaust work.
