Hey, guys. Adam here with americantrucks.com, and today we're taking a closer look at, installing, and listening to the Borla Stinger S-Type Dual Cat-Back Exhaust for the '19 and newer Silverado 1500 with the factory dual exhaust. Now, if your Silverado came to the factory dual like our 2020 trail boss here in the shop, you might wanna pick up this exhaust for a best of both worlds sound. This is gonna be perfect for the daily driver, looking to make a little bit of noise on their daily commute without it being overwhelming, but also for the guys looking to get really rowdy at wide-open throttle. As you just heard from our sound clip, this exhaust is gonna do just that. This is the middle of the road option and Borla's series of Cat-Back exhausts. They have the Borla Touring, which is a lot more mellow, the Borla stinger, which you hear in this exhaust, and the Borla ATAK, which is their loudest of the loud. This one here being that middle-of-the-road option, I'm gonna give three out of five on our loudness meter. It's perfect for guys going red light to red light, looking to make a little bit of noise. It's deep, it's throaty, it's aggressive, but there's no drone whatsoever inside the cabin, making it a really peaceful ride for the family.Now, if you're looking to make some noise, hit the highway wide-open throttle, you can definitely let everybody know around you that it is an aftermarket exhaust, you're here to make some noise and play games, that's what this exhaust is all about. Again, best of both worlds. Now, this exhaust is gonna use their Borla Stinger S-Type muffler along with a 3-inch mandrel bent 304 stainless steel. Now, the 304 stainless is the highest quality material in the category, more so than 409 and even aluminized, which is gonna be one of the more affordable entry-level options. 304 is gonna be great for the guys seeing a lot of salt in the winter months like we are here, and we'll take a closer look at that, comparing it to the factory exhaust a little bit later in the video.Now, this one is gonna reuse your factory squared-off exhaust tips. Now, if you're looking to pick up aftermarket tips, you can spend a little bit of extra money. Borla offers other tips like a polish quad-tip or a black quad-tip, or a stealthier look. This one here reuses the factory one. So it looks like a stock Silverado, but it's not gonna sound like a stock Silverado. The price tag for this kit comes in right around 1,250 bucks. Install, I'm giving three out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter simply because it does require you to off your factory exhaust in order to get it down off the vehicle. Your factory exhaust from the passenger side tip all the way back to the cat is gonna be all one piece with the exception of the driver's side tailpipe. So in order to get that guy down, especially if you're working on the ground, you wanna cut it off right in front of the factory muffler. And so it does beef up the difficulty just a little bit. You wanna have a cutting tool like a Sawzall on deck to get that job done, otherwise simple hand tools required. I'll walk you through the entire process. It'll take you about two hours from start to finish. What do you say we get started?Tools used in the install include an impact gun or a ratchet, 13-millimeter short and deep socket, 15 deep and short socket, ratchet, long extension is recommended, a Sawzall or a cutting tool of your choice, some eye protection, and some gloves. Kicking off the uninstall here of the factory exhaust, we're working on our 2020 trail boss which does have the factory dual. Now, what we're gonna do is start off at the rear of the vehicle on the driver's side, getting off this factory driver's side tailpipe. We're gonna start by removing the bracket with the hanger on the frame using our 15 socket. Okay. Toward the tip here, right before the tip, there's a hanger going into an isolator on the frame. I'm gonna go with my 15 deep socket and my impact gun right over the tailpipe and get that bolt off. Next step, you wanna follow that same tailpipe back behind the spare tire carrier. There's a flange connecting that to where it splits off into the dual. There are two 13-millimeter nuts we have to get off. The one in the back's gonna be a little bit more difficult. We're gonna hit this one first with our 13 swivel socket.All right. Now you have to get off the back one. You may have to get creative on how you get your gun back there or switch over to a ratchet. All right. I'm going over the backside of that tailpipe with a very long extension. With a 13 deep, I'm gonna get that guy off. With that, your tailpipe should be free. All right. Bring this guy down over the axle and set it aside. So now that we have the driver's side tailpipe out of the way, the entire passenger side is one piece from the cats back to the tip. Now, because of that, we have to make a cut in order to get this in two pieces to make it easier getting it off. In front of a muffler toward the front of the vehicle, we're gonna cut right off that pipe. That's gonna make it easier. We're gonna have two separate pieces and then we can get the muffler system off with the tailpipe on the passenger side and then the last pipe up by the cats. Grab a Sawzall. This is what I recommend using or you can use whatever you're most comfortable with and make that cut.Now, there's no real measurement. We're just going a couple of inches in front of that active valve for the front of the muffler here. Just about there. So now we're looking at our passenger side tailpipe, doing the same thing that we did on the driver's side. I'm gonna use a short 15 socket to get this bolt out the frame by the tip. All right. Next step, you wanna grab a hanger removal tool. That's what I recommend using. Pry bar also works. And you wanna pop out the hangers on both sides of the muffler right over the axle. All right. Once you pop the other one out, keep in mind, guys, the muffler assembly along with the tailpipe on the passenger side, it's free. So you wanna be supporting it in order to get it down safely. All right. Now we can lift this guy down in one piece and set it aside.All right. Only a couple of steps left to get our factory exhaust off. We're up here by our flex pipe near the cat. We're gonna remove this clamp here with the 13-millimeter bolt. Now, the 13 bolt is facing up. So I do have to go above it with our ratchet and I'm gonna use a short 13 socket, loosen that up so that we can remove the pipe. All right. Now let's get the hanger out. All right. Switching back over to my hanger removal tool, we're gonna pop this pipe out of the hanger on the frame. All right. Slide this over the frame and set it aside. All right. So we got our factory exhaust off of our 2020 trail boss and it's on the ground here next to our Borla Stinger S-Type dual exhaust. I wanna take it through some similarities and differences between the two here, and I'm gonna start upfront.As you can see, it's a very similar pipe coming off the cats. The only difference being it doesn't have that flex pipe restricting the airflow there. This is a 3-inch 304 stainless steel with mandrel bends. Mandrel bends are gonna help reduce the kinks and make it a smoother bend in the pipes to help increase the airflow there and reduce kinks. Now, the 304 is the highest quality materials in the category, meaning it's great for the guys located in wintery weather areas seeing a lot of road salt in the winter months like we are here on the East Coast. We know that can corrode factory exhaust and aftermarket exhaust alike, and this 304 is gonna hold up in the long run. Running from that 3-inch tubing into the muffler here, you can see a big difference between the factory muffler and your Borla Stinger S-Type. Now, the S-Type muffler gives you the sound you heard from our sound clip earlier on. That's that great, best of both worlds muffler. It's gonna give you really high sounds at higher RPMs or red line and it's gonna keep things pretty tame and idle, getting going nice bark and deep throaty sound in between. Now, that S-Type there, again, being the best of both worlds makes it a great daily driver and you already heard the sound clips, so you know how good it sounds. Moving on from that, it does continue with the single outlet, much like your factory muffler, and then it splits into the Y-pipe. Now, that Y-pipe is gonna shove right around the spare tire carrier and dump out using the factory tips under the rear bumper.Now, because the trail boss has those unique squared-off tips, this isn't something that's gonna be included in the kit. The kit itself is gonna use very basic piping that'll go right into those factory inserts. Now, this here is gonna be a little bit larger than the factory exhaust in terms of diameter so you get a little bit better airflow and all around it's gonna look like a factory exhaust but sound very much aftermarket. There's a couple of factory hangers we're gonna get to once we get to that point of the install, but we're gonna start here at our cat pipe. First step is the new Borla extension pipe. Going back to your cat pipe. Make sure you have the factory clamp from that ball joint on the pipe itself. We're gonna seat our hanger into the isolator on the frame just like that and now we can tighten down that clamp. You wanna make sure that clamp is evenly distributed over both pipes so it tightens down evenly, you don't have an exhaust leak. Grab your 13 socket and tighten that clamp down.Next, grab your muffler. Make sure you have one of the new 3-inch clamps inserted over that inlet and seat that over the pipe. And make sure that's seated all the way back there. And I'm not gonna over-tighten this clamp. Just get it nice and snug. Leave a little bit of room for adjustment. All right. Next step we're gonna do our Y-pipe going over the axle. Make sure you have a clamp on there as well. Line it up to your muffler and insert that there. Then you wanna bring it up to the isolators and hang them up Again, we're gonna get this clamp snug. Next up, we're gonna finish up our passenger side here. You wanna have a clamp on that end, transfer over the hanger from the factory exhaust that we took off with the bracket, insert into the tip first and then bring it up to match pipe.All right. Once you have that in there, I'm gonna rotate this bracket forward and hang it up on the frame. All right. Just like that. All right. While we're here, I'm just gonna put that 15 bolt back through and tighten that down. Last step on this side, let's tighten down that clamp, connecting it to the rear axle pipe. All right. This next pipe is pretty awkward to install. We're gonna do the pipe that swivels around the spare tire to the driver's side. Make sure you have a clamp on there before you begin, head up there, and connect it to the Y-pipe. All right. Once you to have that seated all the way down, bring your clamp over and then tighten that guy down. All right. Swivel the clamp over and tighten it down. All right. Last step is the pipe on our driver's side. Again, insert that into the factory tip. You may have to do a little bit of pipe gymnastics to get this guy to line up. Bring it on over. Perfect. All right. Now we can bring the factory clamp back over, tighten it down to the frame, and then finish up with that clamp. Insert the factory bracket, lift it up, and connect it to the frame. Put that 15 back through and tighten it down. All right. Swivel that clamp back up. Tighten that down. All right. Make sure all your clamps are tight and you're good to go.That's gonna wrap up my review and install for the Borla Stinger S-Type Dual Cat-Back Exhaust with the Factory Tips, available for the 2019 and newer Silverado 1500 with the factory dual exhaust.
