Hey everyone! :)

Hope you're all doing well and staying safe! :)

I have narrowed down my decision to either Borla ( https://www.borla.com/products/kia-stinger-cat-back-exhaust-system-140736 ) or MBRP ( https://mbrpexhauststore.com/2-5-cat-back-dual-rear-exit-t304-kia-stinger-3-3l-rwd-awd-2018-2021/ ) but would love some input from the forums of why one would be chosen over the other. I would love open feedback, honest opinions, stories, or any other information and advice possible. Also, if possible, I have seen some vendors posting on here as well. I am very much interested to see what discounts and specials can be done. Whether it is from private messages or posting in this thread I would love to see a deal be made on either of these. Please and thank you! :)

The only thing I can say about the Borla exhaust is, your going to get a lot of drone inside the car. That's the biggest complaint with Borla, MBRP is a lot better when it comes to no drone...

From the sound clips I am seeing online MBRP seems only slightly louder than stock. How much louder is it on both idle and full throttle? What about lower RPM's when driving around town?

Borla is louder but with much more drone, correct?

Foolish question but if I get Borla, or MBRP, is it ok to not get any exhaust tips? What are the reasons for getting exhaust tips besides aesthetics and drone reduction?

Thank you!! :)

Correct

Correct it does take some of the drone out but it's mainly for a different look..

It's a little louder then stock at low RPM an at speed you can still hear it even with the road noise. I run a Magnaflow catback, it's a little louder the stock but it's a deeper sound...

Great!

Looks like I am "sold" on the MBRP exhaust! I will just get the exhaust first and see if I want to get tips. Thank you spider55 so much btw! Very helpful and solid information!!! :D

Last few questions then...

1 - Are there any downsides to the MBRP exhaust compared to stock exhaust?
2 - What is the weight difference between MBRP exhaust and stock exhaust ?
3 - Is this ( https://mbrpexhauststore.com/2-5-cat-back-dual-rear-exit-t304-kia-stinger-3-3l-rwd-awd-2018-2021/ ) the specific MBRP exhaust that I should purchase for my 2020 Stinger GT RWD or is there a different one I should be looking at?
4 - Where or how can I contact a vendor directly to get a discount? My zip code is 10704 but I was told of a muffler shop more out of state in my area that I should go to for the actual installation.
5 - Any other feedback or advice?
