Well, it is done! Poor-man's Borla, it sounds damn good, and hella better than stock.

http://www.nouturn.com/viper/exhaust_install.php

This page contains pics of the entire installation, some tips, and complete before and after vids.

I'd really appreciate some feedback on my page walkthrough... if it sucks or if you like it.. don't matter. If enough people dig it I'll do some more as I do more mods.

Thanks all.. enjoy

my 2 cents...

You may want to think about tucking those tips in a bit more.

It looks ok from the top but from the side the tips are too short vs. how far they stick out.

see how the tips on my ACR are tucked in just enough not to show the smaller 3 inch pipes behind them?

Yea, thats in the plans... the tips were welded earlier in the day and I think are about as far up as it will go. The pipes need a little trim to get them to ride up.

Here is another top view.


Thanks for the pic.. I'll use it as a model when fixing those tips :nod:

looking good. In fact, I had nearly identical set up as yours. Snake oyl assembly + 4" tips. I just sold mine to local dealership and purchased the same one as Toby. Borlas are definitely louder but both sound much better than stock. I also installed high flow cats along with Borlas but still not loud enought /images/graemlins/wink

Toby - looks like your tips are very close to the bumper. Mine is about the same - barely 1/2" away. Hopefully it's not going to burn anything...

thanks man...

well, I plan on doing the exact upgrade you did in the future... from this mod to borlas or corsas... I figure start small and work my way up the ladder :thumb:

I was worried about proximity too.. didn't want to burn any paint, I've heard of this happening to other owners, and I know those pipes gets insanely hot.

This is their new system.

and the pipes are very close to the paint at the top but since the tips have another pipe within them...they should be ok. I could adjust them back some as they are seperate and mount right at the rear mufflers.

Toby...
Did you get your HF cats on yet? If yes, what is your evaluation with this new 4 muffler Borla. I'm curious because I'm copying you - Borla is on , HF cats will be here next week. Thanks
I installed the high flow cats when I did the Borla system.

The system is just about right for me. Lots of throaty sounds at idle and fairly loud when you hit the go pedal. When you are just cruising on the highway in 6th gear or shifting like a grandma...the system is fairly quiet.

I also get lots of backfires, pops and other assorted cool noises too when I let off the gas. I do think that is a result of the cats.
