Default Strup vs Borla Dual Exhaust

Well I am trying to decide on an exhaust for my 08 xB. I think the decision has come down to either the Strup setup, or the Borla dual exhaust setup. Has anyone heard both in person? Any opinions? Right now my only engine mod is the TRD intake.

Also, I have found the Strup for $345 shipped and the Borla for about $370 shipped. Anyone know of any place better?

I just got the Strup setup nd I couldn't be more happy.
The tone is great, nice and deep, not raspy at all.
And my xB seems like it definitely has more pep.
Plus it looks great! Nice sized tip and a slight angle to it.

I heard the Borla on YouTube videos and decided against it due to it's apprearance and sound.

purely based on speculation and my own personal thoughts..i would go with the borla as it is a straight pipe and it seems as the easiest flowing item in the bunch :p now i have no real evidence to prove this its just whats making me want to get it :p and i do want it loud...

Magnaflow Makes a Very Nice Set Up Too. Its from the Mid Muffler back, due to the rear converter being built into the resonator.
