why do you feel that way? the ones i see have the pipes welded together to share a crossover. the factory pipe is just a length of pipe to do the crossover ( which makes it more of a balance pipe than a true crossover) .the only true crossover I have seen is the magnaflow. I never bought one of them but have installed the corsa. I am installing a bi mode vette pipe on mine at present. hope it sounds ok. the 4.6 will never sound as good as the ls motor in my opinion even with the exact same exhaust system.Overpriced and screwed up the X pipe design.
The X pipe is too far from the headers and not sized right. The best X pipe is the GM design off a Corvette C6 Z06; they know what they are doing. The front half fits perfectly on an XLR; used around $250. Baffles screw up the exhaust flow. Corsa is for people who can't weld.
I’ve had Corsa on my base for quite a while. Guy who installed it said it was the best made after market exhaust he’d ever seen (he wasn’t some newbie either). You know it when you get on it! I didn’t want to deal with drone so I didn’t bother with other options - Corsa promises no drone & that is true. We have Billy Boat Fusion exhaust on our V, and while it makes the car sound like a race car, it has drone and that gets oldddd after a while. Some of your choices will depend on how much you care about drone/how much it bothers you.
Wow - looks like the nastiness in the forum has not improved. Not sure why people have to put down other people's opinion. I had not logged on for several months. When I joined the forum, it was a place to share my admiration for such a unique car - met some amazing people... back in the day. It looks like I have no reason to log back in for another couple of years or so... maybe people might become kinder to one another (LOL - who am I kidding - this place has become quite the venomous pit at times).Corsa exhaust system: Around $2200 to purchase, another $400 to $500 to install, if you can't do it yourself*. Almost 3K, after the fat lady sings. Yea great, just wonderful....go for it.
You are correct. Just like the rear sway bar install. I have done 15 or so and never had a customer not like them .If someone does not want to put them on they dont know what they are missing. I had a customer bring a newer25k mile 08 that the was looking at but said it did not ride as well as his 100K mile 05 .I checked it and found one bad mag shock and no rear sway bar. He bought it, I replaced both rear mags and added the sway bar and he was right were he wanted to be. Said the car was great.I second ChicagoDave's sentiment concerning the willingness of some to put down someone for their opinion. Why not if you don't like someone's opinion, voice yours without putting the other person down. The others can then decide what they want to believe. Make this a forum that all owners WANT to participate in!!!
dave. you say you have the Billy boat on a v? I thought people said they were pretty quite unless you open them up. Do you have the bi mode ones?
