I had the Z in for some warranty work today and thought I would inquire about an exhaust mod to make it sound better. I told the mechanic I was not interested in headers or having to do any tuning changes and he suggested Borla stingers. I also would like to go with two big tips instead of four. Any members here have the Borla stingers or other suggestions? Does Corsa have a similar product? I have always been kind of a purist so this is a big step for me.

Thanks
Greg

I'm a big fan of GHL Magnums. IMO they have a deep tone and don't sound raspy like some. Borla's are a close second. From what I have heard Borla pretty much copied GHL's design. :cheers:

Thanks IT L GO. I can always count on you for GOOD advice and I think so can a lot of others on this site. Thanks for all your help. By the way is there a supporting vendor that sells GHL'S? :cheers:

I love the Stingers but would have gone with the GHL also.... Can't go wrong with either one.... :thumb:
I agree. At just about every track event I go to, I get at least one comment as to what did I do to get that great sound out of the vette on the track (stingers and LG headers).

And the look of two tips is quite nice....

You can't go wrong with the Borla's, the GHL's, or the B&B Bullets. Although I prefer the looks of the Bullet tips. I think they are the most aggressive looking. If I didn't have the Borla's already, I'd have the Bullets.

Thanks for the pics. You both have the single tip stingers but the tips look to be different sizes. Are there options?

I called Borla today and spoke with Harley. He told me in the Cat Back they had the "Touring"and "S" series with the "S" series being more aggressive. He could only quote me MSRP $770.00 and recommend I call a dealer to get a discount. Does anyone know a dealer that would treat me right. Meanwhile I am trying to find a Z in Cinti that has the Borla so I can give it a listen.

Got up today with every intention of buying the borla stinger cat back system and by this afternoon I was ordering the Corsa pace car with the daytona tips from West Coast Corvette. Paul Santiago w/Corsa had one hell of a sales pitch and I bit. :screwy:

Thanks everyone for the input.
