    i am interested in the borla side exit with the svo skirts. my question is can i mount the exhaust with my stock skirts still on, or do i need the svo skirts on for mounting reasons. thanks

    I haven't dealt with a side exhaust system, but I can't imagine them designing the system so that it is fastened to the side skirts. I think it's more of an aesthetics thing than anything else. I've seen several stangs with a side exhaust and stock skirts, they look like they're from nascar.

    I have just the exhaust on my 99 Cobra (bought it with it on there) and I hate it :mad:. If the side skirts where with it, mabye it wouldnt be that bad, but it will be off very soon. It looks tacky to me, and sounds like shit. Oh yea its the borla kit too. :rant:

    I think it looks great with the sideskirts, any other company besides borla make it?

    I have the side exit on my 94 GT, LOOKS SWEET!! It uses the skirts. Not recommended if your car is lowered though. I scrap my 4x4 on certain driveways. I am using Dynomax Ultra Flo mufflers, sounds great at Idle and when opened up it SCREAMS!! Haven't heard any bad comments on it, people seem to like it. :drunk:

    I actually have seen a company on ebay that unitlizes the front few piece of a magnapack system ,and makes a side kit off of it. I thought it looked really good.

    I hated the sound of the Borlas that were on my cobra when I first got it, plus it being right at my ear made it that much worse. :mad:
