Gibson or Borla exhaust and sulfur smell?

Anyone who has the gibson or borla exhausts - how has it affected the sulfur smell? I haven't decided on one or the other yet but this may allow me to make my decision over the other. I've already had the TSB done however it hasn't really changed anything. I figure the replaced exhaust may server this purpose as well.

All feedback is welcome, I'd like to make my decision soon.

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback. Right now I am thinking I am leaning towards the Borla. Just wanna hear it in person first.

borla

get the borla. you will not be disappointed. the overall quality of the product is much better. the tips are welded on and the kits fits together really nice and it sounds awesome. nice and throaty but not overbearing. Gibson is alright but its a much cheaper system. the tip is a cheap bolt on. also its been back ordered for a while. i had ordered one originally on december 31st and as of the 1st of feb i had not got it. so i cancelled it and ordered the borla. if you do go with the borla go to TRDsparks.org its $624 before shipping as apposed to the $1100 or so elsewhere. best of luck.

Cool, thanks for the tip on the price. I think I saw a link for trdsparks.org on another post as well. Leanin more and more to the borla at this point.
