Going to order a Borla exhaust - which company?

Hey all, I want to order a Borla exhaust for my '03 Sedan and have the tips cut and rewelded to fit the car. The lowest price I can find is around $612 from both ajusa.com and performancecenter.com. Anyone deal with the companies and is one better than another? Thanks.

DO NOT ORDER FROM AJUSA they have the worse service I have ever seen. It took my 6 weeks and a call to the GM to finally have my exhuast shipped. They will give you every excuse under the sun on why it wasn't shipped, 9 out of 10 time it was Borla fault according to them. Heck they told me it was shipped and was out for satur. delivery I sat around all day never got it and then called on monday and it was never shipped, I also found out they never even had ordered it from Borla. Call anyone you want to buy from and make sure they have it. I found out the hard way that most of these places don't even stock them. You order from them and they have Borla drop ship the exhuast. I finally got mine and they picked up they tab to have it shipped next day air, just my 2 cents from experience with AJ USA. I will say I had no problem getting my AEM V2 from them tho, it showed when it was suppose to.

Glad to hear that, I wanted to make sure the companies I plan to deal with have a good reputation behind them. Seems everyone's been leaning towards performancecenter.com anyway. I'm going to keep my eye on the site and see how the price moves. It's bitter cold up here right now and we're supposed to get a lot of snow this weekend. So I'm in no rush for a couple of weeks anyway.

I emailed Tracey on this and he is no longer providing this discount to members anymore. He is still running the site however and his prices are a bit lower than some others so I may still get it from there.

I've also got an email into Joe at hardtopguy.com to make sure the exhaust for the couple will line up at the mounting points and hangers on the sedan, not withstanding the tips. I'll keep everyone posted.

And if you have even MORE extra brain cells, you will invest in Comptech's full exhaust....

Invest... Then go to the bank to take out a loan!



I'd have to say that Borla is my favorite, among our current options.

My .02 Greddy sux, had one looks like garbage and sounds like a rice mobile some 16 teen year old kid is driving with a universal muffler so he/she can look cool, sold it and bought a Borla. Borla looks and sound better once you remove the muffler just b4 is splits off for the tail pipes. Best buy custom made or a Comptech but that gets pricey.
