Hello.

Maybe someone can help me with figuring out what the Borla exhaust actually looks like.

On the Borla website, they show the exhaust for the Cruze to look like this:




But on the TurboTech website, it is being shown to look like this:



So which is it?

It's number two, but in that photo they have some of the components upside down, it doesn't look exactly right. The cat pipe and also the piece between the cat pipe and the muffler that has the hump in it is backwards so the cat pipe looks further left when it's supposed to be in line with the muffler, as it runs down the center of the car. Cat pipe comes down the center, kicks out to driver's side, then that hump goes over the axle, turns 90 degrees passengerward into the muffler, and the rest is in the right place.

Also, this was taken from the above PDF:

Borla Performance Exhaust Systems (PN-140352) is designed for the Chevrolet Cruze Sedan equipped with a 1.8L engine or 1.4L turbo engine, front-wheel drive with automatic or manual transmissions.


Same part number, same catback, right?

Yes, they "may" look different from the factory (maybe, maybe not) However the Borla system works on both and is the same part for either engine.

Meaning, if they are 2 different cat backs from GM, Borla, figured out a way to make 1 cat back work for both :)

Hope this helps.

In that case, the Borla system deletes the cat under the center of the car and moves the muffler to that spot instead of above the axle?
