Default npp vs borla s-type 2

Well I'm on the fence what to do... I can buy a NPP exhaust for 750 and another $200 for the M2W switch from a vendor on this forum... so looking at 1k with shipping for everything.

OR...

Borla S-Type 2. Keep hearing that Type 2 got rid of the drone. I really want that sweet sounding exhaust but nervous type 2 still has too much drone?

What has everyone done? Opinions?

I have the orla Atak, which is more aggressive. It has no drone at cruising speeds

atak is louder than NPP open?

I know stingers would "breath" more ...

I forgot to add...there is quite a bit to save...about $4-$500 in savings by only putting NPP's on instead of borla's.

Look around. I got my Borla Atak for 875 shipped. It was used less than 5 miles. Forum member put it on, drove around the block and did not like it, then took it off.

Agree with previous poster that Borla has much less drone than NPP. I also just put an ATAK on and love it. The S-Type sounds to be a little bit higher pitched, kinda like Corsas. Can't go wrong with either. I think the NPP is far too tame, but maybe you don't enjoy a loud exhaust?

BTW, I would recommend not spending $200 on a M2W switch - It's just a $15 remote relay with a fuse holder soldered on. Best of luck with your decision. Keep in mind you're not married to whatever choice you make. You can always change.

My NPP has no drone. It's very quiet on the highway, and quite loud when you get on it. Very happy with NPP - it and the HUD are 2 features that all "sporty" vehicles should come with IMO.

I don't know the complete history of Borla exhausts for C6 vettes, but from many posts on the forum I think that the systems they build now are slightly different than an older style, and drone has been dramatically reduced. The one I purchased recently showed the manufacture date on the box... The manufacture date was a few days before the ship date. Seems like they can't make em fast enough.

I had the Borla Stingers on a 2007 Mustang Gt with Kooks LT headers and the sound was incredible at idle and when you punched it. I plan on putting the Borla stingers on my C6 sometime this year. if you go to Borla's website they have 3 systems on C6 vettes for sound variation and comparison to see which you would prefer. Out of all 3 systems I'd go with the Borla 'S" system. Just my choice for a vette

Get the NPP and the m2w switch, 200 for the m2w is way to much, I had bought it for 75.00 and 30.00 installation, it is about an 1/2 hr job put the switch on the dead pedal, turn it off when not needed best of both worlds. JMO

Anything 2011 and newer most likely is type 2. But ur model number should tell u which version u have.

I would not spend 1000 bucks on NPP with all the other choices out there that sound far,far better.Were it not on the car already when I bought it,I would not have ordered it.It sounds like garbage with the baffles open when you sit there and rev it up...If you put headers on your car,then NPP will sound halfway decent.I must be in the minority about this,but I don't care.CORSA,BORLA,BASSANI..all better sounding then NPP and CORSA claims no drone and the BASSANI I had had no drone at all in the car...all the sound was out the back as it should be.The only good thing about NPP is the fact that it is quiet as a Cadillac UNTIL you open the baffles..then it sounds like a can with ball bearings rolling around in it.

Borla . . . I've had the Stingers (Aggresive) on mine going on 6 years. The sound is great and I rate it as the best mod I've done. Now they have the ATAK and that's the one I'd choose.

The M2W is not $200, it's the NPP retrofit kit that he will need. That is around 200 and includes a M2W. I say go with NPP, That's what I did. Very happy.

I have the original Type S stingers on my 2005 and they sound great at idle and when you punch it, however they have a lot of drone when cruising. I have the type II S, stingers on my 2012 vert and they also sound great at idle and when you punch it but no drone at all. I'd go for type II/

Seeing as you have 2 vettes with the 2 systems, can you do a little review? I see you like the sound on both, but can you share more info? How similar do they sound? One louder? One raspier? Look of them? Fitment?

I was planning on Stingers, and getting the classic, but if it sounds pretty much the same and drone is gone, don't see why I shouldn't get the type 2.

Thanks
