    What is OEM exhaust on Saleen S/C?

    I went to a SVT dealership and had 'em start up a 03 Saleen w/ the S/C. The dealer said it had Borla exhaust. Which one does it have? Is it the same that is on the Saleen website (2.5 catback for $699?). Thanks.

    I know this thread is probably dead but the 03 saleen s/c has a magnaflow exhaust system with a saleen x-pipe. I would know because I own one.

    it's magnaflow. saleen dropped borla about a year ago and replaced it with magnaflow. i believe the 2000 was the last year or 2001. not too sure

    Good question. My saleen has the magnaflows with X and sounds nothing like I thought a saleen would sound like. Pretty damn weak IMO. How does your saleen sound?

    Thats because Saleens have to use the factory converters.....

    They quiet the car down quite a bit.....

    I like the sound of the Magnaflows better.....

    I have heard a Saleen with Borla and Magnaflow side by side and the Magnaflow is deeper then the Borla....and has a lot smoother sound to it
