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.

Here is an excerpt from Popular Hot Rodding Magazine (September 1982) full page write-up about the 73-74 Super Duty Trans Am.
The first and last paragraphs:
"Probably one of the most awesome engines ever produced by Pontiac was the Super Duty which was built in two versions, 1961-1963 and 1973-1974. The Super Duty engine was ahead of its time churning out great doses of torque and horsepower. When combined with the Trans Am body style it made for an unbeatable combination of power and handling.
All Super Duty Trans Ams came with the 8 1/2-inch 10-bolt rear end, and with the optional 3.42 to 1 rear gearing were capable of running 13.90-second quarter mile times. If you're interested in picking up a Super Duty T/A today, they run between $5,000 and $10,000 depending on condition. If you can't afford one, pretend you can and take a test ride. Once you've been in one, you won't forget what they look, sound, and feel like."
