shitty. I think my dad was wanting to look at your SW to see if they would work since you have the BOrla and i want to get one if it wont interfere with the mudflap. Do you still have the borla on your SW?

Well, yes and no. It had the Borla exhaust. The Borla muffler sounded like shite so I had a nice glass pack put on. Baffles came loose and it sounded like shite. So the other day, I had a 40 series Flowmaster installed. Sounds much better. I do still have the tip. Phillip, if it is the tip you really like, there is an aftermarket tip that looks exactly like the Borla one. I will try and find out who makes it. I wouldn't spend the money on the whole exauhst. Spend a $120 and get a flowmaster and the tip installed.

Resurrecting a very old post for anyone searching the Borla/mudflap combo.
I added genuine brackets and Allmakes mudflaps as the genuine pre-2007 are NLA (no TD5 cut out on the LH side) and I have a Borla exhaust already installed. My first short drive and the LH flap was very hot and a bubble was forming from delamination of the flap. There would seem to be enough clearance between the exhaust tip and the mudflap, but apparently not.
I'll likely have the exhaust tip moved to exit behind the wheel as I like the look and function of the mudflap and it's state law to have the top half of the rear tires covered. I had a friend pulled over for it before and I don't like being pulled over.

What about a heat shield? You could probably have one not look dumb.

That's not a bad idea. It could bolt to the mudflap mounting bracket. I definitely like how the Borla exhaust is tucked up tight. Would aluminum be best for that?

Aluminum doesn't seem to get too hot and mudflap stays cool.
I just threw it together in about 30 minutes. Works for now and I can improve on it later if I decide to go this route for good.
