Anyone running a Borla Exhaust on their SOHC V6?

I have the chance to purchase a discounted Borla cat back exhaust for
my 97 SOHC V6. Anyone have one, does it sound like a honda civic?
That's my only doubt about upgrading my exhaust...
( I wouldn't think twice if I had the 302)
If it will ultimately sound like a import I would rather have no sound
at all.
Any suggestions/comments are greatly appreciated
Thanks,
Joe

No, doesn't sound like that, but does not sound like a Mustang either!
Calling it "only slightly louder than stock" is being a bit understated, as
well.

Joe, I have a Sporttrac w/ 4.0 and a Flowmaster DeltaFlow 50 series. It is
NOT a V8 sound, but it's not rice either. Got just a nice rumble at idle,
with mild drone at cruise. I expect the same from the Borla.

Yeah, that's how I'd characterize mine (Borla), too. Six cylinders just
produce a different note than 8 will. Mine kind of hits a resonance with
the body at 55 mph.
