Borla CatBack Kit for the XK HEMI

Anyone have any experience with the Borla kit that came out recently?

Just curious about the performance and sound factor.

So far it looks like Magnaflow, Gibson , and Borla have kits available. I heard Dynomax had something.. but not yet released.

Re: Borla CatBack Kit for the XK HEMI

I haven't heard the kit for the Hemi Commander yet however Borla typically builts a very solid product with a more understated muscular sound, read-quiter than some prefer, for a louder system try magnflow either way I'm sure you'll be happy.

Re: Borla CatBack Kit for the XK HEMI

I had a Borla cat-back system on my 99 Grand Cherokee 4.7L, and was very pleased with it overall. I was going to purchase a Borla for my 5.7L Commander. When I talked with Borla last month, although they showed the Commander Hemi system on their website, they were still 60 days away from actual availability. Same scenario for the Gibson. The Magnaflow was available in mid-June. I was going on a 2000 mile trip and wanted the system for the trip, so I bought the Magnaflow. I am just as pleased with the Magnaflow as I was with the Borla on my old Jeep. Both are easy to install, sound good without being overpowering on the highway, give more "seat-of-the-pants" performance, are made of stainless steel so should last, and increase the gas mileage substantially. I would recommend either manufacturer.

I had the kit installed. Its a nice kit. The slightly oversized chrome, rolled tip looks great.
It sounds awesome with a nice growl upon starting the engine. It idles with a slight deep undertone. Once you get it on the gas, it sounds very tough without being overbaringly loud. There is very little drone on the highway.

I'm very pleased and so is my wife.
I have not noticed any seat of the pants performance gains as the Hemi is already a beast. And I'm not too excited about a few extra ponies. I got what I wanted out of it.
I also have not noticed any MPG gains..but I didnt buy the Hemi for good MPGs....and I didnt getthis lit to increase MPGs.

My next move it to put a cold air intake..I'll probably get a little perfomance gain with that but again, I dont expect anything to WOW about.

I'll try to get some pics and a sound clip up soon, just been busy.

With a Mopar cold air intake, I get a drone when rpm is at 2000 and speed is 70mph. This is only annoying on the driver seat. No problems on the passenger seat. Unless you are exactly in the same condition of speed and rpm, you will not hear or feel the drone.

Lazarus,

First of all, Welcome to the forum. When I saw your "Republic of Texas" in the upper corner, I knew that I had to respond with a very short story. This is off topic but it is worth it.

Their is an association in Texas called the "Society for the Preservation of Texas".

This august group of Texans has been working and raising money for a project in Texas.

They are soliciting money to build a wall all around the border of Texas.

So far the contributions are coming in:







two to one from OUT OF STATE......LOL

sorry I was off topic and it is all in good fun. Also Jon, don't be laughing out loud in court.
