2002 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 M6 - Stock/Borla Exhaust Comparison Exhaust comparison between stock and
the Borla adjustable catback with the 1/4 plate, mainly to give people
ideas of what brand of Exhaust they
want, and how much better it sounds/looks over stock.
The completely closed plate is very quiet, and the 3/4 & wide open plate is
loud and can backfire a lot. I think the 1/4 plate is perfect.
Only other mods are SLP lid, UMI short stick, and Corsa clone Exhaust tips.
Better quality Borla-only Exhaust

great. Also I don't want the initials of the previous owner on the car :P
