I have a 2016 Cruze LT limited with the 1.4 turbo. I'll be installing borla s-type cat back exhaust (part 140352).

I'm fairly confident I'll get the exhaust installed without a problem. Just in case I find the noise too loud, does anyone know if there's a baffle that works with this exhaust? I contacted borla, and they said they don't have one, but I'm sure theres an aftermarket one that might work.

Anybody know?

It's probably doubtful that they'll have baffles for them I'm assuming you're thinking of motorcycle pipes that have inserts for noise. Car mufflers are just what they are. You might be able to get a muffler shop to add in a resonator or something to help if it's too loud

After finding the borla exhaust a bit loud (measured by my wife's excursion of disdain) a bit of research and measuring, I found a great option.

Inserting a motorcycle type 2" baffle at the s turn pipe connection mid exhaust quieted the exhaust considerably. No loss in power or flow. Still has a good satisfying growl under acceleration. And cheap at 12 bucks!

Thought I'd post it here in case someone else is looking for the same fix.

Found on revzilla.com. inserts in the existing pipe without modification.

Yeah. Anything you get will no be bolt in. From what I hear as long as you keep the resonator AND a muffler, it's not too loud. I personally just have catless downpipe and midpipe and am going to install an electronic dump pipe soon, but from the resonator back is stock (keep it quite unless it needs to get loud. Lol). Any shop can throw one of those on for you in an hour. Now, how it will sounds (tone wise) may annoy you more than the actual db level would have. Just depends on the application
