2017~2021 CX-5 Borla Exhaust


OEM removed without issue.
Install was straight forward. Hangers wear lubed yesterday, and the bolts came off without a breaker bar (my CX5 is 2 months old).

Overall, the sound is mellow, and not over the top.

IF you want something louder and more aggressive, this Touring selection is probably not for you.

Sorry, but I will be using my Iphone to record the exhaust sound. Hopefully, that will provide a decent recording.

Look for an SPL/sound meter app. It doesn't even have to be accurate as long as it's linear enough to compare before and after to see the difference, especially inside the car.
Wow this nice, exactly the sound I am after. Will definitely be changing the rear muffler for an aftermarket one.

Tommy, I am sure you must be loving the sound change every time you drive the car.
