2017 Crewcab Shortbed aftermarket upgrades

I've had my 2017 Silverado for about 4 months now and have been pretty happy with it so far. It's a 6.2 with the 8 speed auto and the fuel mileage has been pretty incredible (20-24 mpg).

The only thing that I really don't like is that it's way too quiet! I'm currently looking at the Borla catback setup, of which they offer 3 versions, Touring, Stype and Atak.

Video from Jegs: http://www.jegs.com/i/Borla/157/140570/10002/-1

Just checking to see if anyone has installed one these and what their opinion was on them.

Re: 2017 Crewcab Shortbed aftermarket upgrades

I went with the GM Borla on my 2015 with the 6.2. It retains the flapper valve to minimize the V4 chopper sound. You can hear it a bit in the cab, but it's not overwhelming. I bought mine from Cultrag Performance for about $1075 shipped (with the stainless tips), with a 10% off coupon.

How long did it take to install it? Any pictures? Is the sound in the cab not crazy loud? Do you have the part #s and another coupon? If so, I would be all over that deal!

Was going to purchase yesterday, but the 10% discount is no longer available...

Re: 2017 Crewcab Shortbed aftermarket upgrades

Sorry I don't have any pics readily available. Install took about 1.5 hours, and most of that was removing the old exhaust in one piece. The in cab sound is pretty low key and I have no complaints. I would recommend using exhaust pliers (about $20) to get the pipes off the hangers. I didn't have any at the time and that added to the project's time.

I finally got the price I wanted and place my order last night. Unfortunately they are now backordered...........
