In Reply to: Re: DEC cat w/ Borla or Supersprint center w/ Borl posted by Jon on April 22, 2002 at 18:05:08:

I've had the DEC unit and the Supersprint racing center section (stainless - no resonator).

The DEC cat fit perfectly, just like the factory unit.

The Supersprint was a little too long and I had to cut about 1/2" off the ends of the pipes. This may have been a prototype unit of some sort though because it was purchased in Mexico quite some time before it was available through BMP.

The top-end power gains and "revability" with the Supersprint unit, vs. the DEC or factory cats, was quite noticable.

This is all with OEM and Stromung mufflers. The Borla unit is similar. I've also heard the SS/Borla and OEM/Borla combinations. The SS/Borla is pretty loud but not too bad.


Has anyone use these combination ? How was the fitting?
I know the Supersprint center section is not street legal.
Thank you.
