Bought a Borla ATAK need advice

Currently I have a straight pipe kid muffler and resonator delete!

Will the Borla ATAK sound better or am I wasting money ?

It’s super tin can sounding now and whinny

Hoping someone has heard both options in person. I don’t want the Borla to sound the same

I'm surprised you would spring for what is probably the most expensive exhaust system out there without hearing it first. I'm sure there is no drone, but know that the ATAK is the loudest option out there.

There are Youtube videos to check out.

The guy in the second video is a member here.

Watched a million videos but a video never does sound justice! I just don’t want it to sound the same as my straight pipe

I went with the Flowmaster American Thunder. I could not justify the price of the Borla but I do think the exhaust note is a bit sweeter with the Borla but not double the price sweet. Good luck with your search. The youtube vids on the American Thunder are pretty close to real life.

Straight pipe sound is an acquired taste. Since you never acquired it, I'm confident you will be very pleased with The sound of the Atak. Other than just loud, a designed exhaust will sound better than basically no exhaust. A Guy

Rest assured, it can't be worse than a straight piped car.

Nah, Borlas sound good. They’re one of the most popular for V6/V8’s across a lot of models.

Awesome sounds good. I like loud but the straight pipe just sounds a little weird. Almost like a tin can sound
