However, Borla has published a newer video comparing its S-Type cat-back system to the factory exhaust system on the 3.6-liter LFX V6-equipped Colorado. We must say; it’s certainly an improvement over the factory exhaust, which has a metallic – dare we say “ricey”? – sound, especially at wide-open-throttle.
In comparison, the Borla S-Type gives the V6 a deeper, throatier burble that’s much more pleasing to the ears.
We find ourselves once again weighing the improvement of an exhaust system against its cost, and this S-Type cat-back comes with a price tag of just under $800 from Summit Racing. We could think of plenty of other ways to spend 800 bucks, and to be frank, we might consider simply deleting the muffler if we faced such a choice.
That said, a muffler delete isn’t for everyone, and if you want a complete, warrantied system that’s been thoughtfully engineered , then the Borla S-Type cat-back isn’t a bad choice.
