Depends on what you're looking for. There are numerous topics on here that I read when I decided. Try searching for the videos of each so that you can get an idea of how lud they are. I went with SLP since I liked the sound of that one better but my wife would have preferred a slightly quieter purr like the Borla is known for. Either exhaust is a great upgrade but without knowing what your purpose for upgrading is, it's nearly impossible to give you a good recommendation on which one to buy.

Of course, if you want brand new catback you can cross SLP off your list since they don't make them anymore. You would have to buy a used one. I got mine used and I haven't had any problems with it in the 2 years it's been on my car.

Search around the forums and you'll find a lot of information about both systems.

Borla is actually smaller diameter piping, so if it's power you are looking for the SLP is actually better, and I much prefer the sound of the SLP myself because it's deeper than the Borla. As stated though, they don't make the SLP anymore so it's a moot point.
