Muffler

I have a Honda Accord Lx 4 Cylinder. I want a Borla muffler. Which would be better? The boomer series or turbo series. I was leaning more towards the turbo but im not sure my engine is powerful enough to quality as a "mid-size" engine. Suggestions?

Theres a difference between the two. The Boomer is the muffler tip. The Turbos are the mmuffler chambers. You could install both and not have a problem.

From off of CarDomain.com: " Borla Boomers™ are full-blown, high-tech, dyno and race-proven mufflers for the street or track."

These are 2 of the Borla Boomer designs

This is the Borla Turbo muffler chamber.

You would get more horsepower from the Turbos though.
