I just want to add my two or three cents worth to this discussion and let you guys and gals know what I've done so far to this point. I got a v6(or my wife does)I had to go with something that would not offend her but please her at the same time and give the sound of being mean like a v8. I've done it. The right man at the right place can do wonders. I will post that infor. later with my videos. I don't won't to make this initial entry to long but here's what he did. Cut off the big gas cans (obvious thing to do, thanks screamin) converted my 2 1/4" pipes to 2 1/2" pipes, put in a 22" dual in/out magnaflow muffler up front with a built in x pipe and add 3.5" tips at the end and wham you got a grand slam. The bad boy is sweet to hear. NO cackle on decel. Beautiful deep throaty rumble at idle and she sings almost, I said almost like a v8 at accel. Your wondering about drone, virtually none, just a little more than factory setup, most of the growl comes when your accelerating, but settles beautifully when cruising. To humble the cabin sound even more I added foam egg crate insulating to the trunk area last night and it cut the cabin noise by at least 30%. My wife actually complained that she can't hear it as much when she gets on it now.. wow gentlemen how often does that happen. Let me know if you have any more questions

Kellyjrt...your description sounds excellent! Now (as if you didn't know it was coming) I'm definitely looking forward to the images and videos!

I'm giving myself until this spring to settle on a set up, but details are a must! A list of all parts necessary for the installation would be very much appreciated to go along with your videos.

we are working on the video now and pics of the process. I also have a 2LT ABM. I'm hoping for the video on utube to be finished by this weekend. My son is working on it. And cost, way way under 1000.00. If I made it public I would have to have my tongue cut out. I have some still pics of the car somewhere in my email. Pm me your email address and I will forward them to you.

Your description of what you did sounds like what suavecito1177 did, except that he also removed the stock resonators.

ok, here is my first exhaust video, due to poor weather, timing, getting help doing the vid, and just the right place and time, this is how my v6 sounds now. Well kinda, the audio doesn't do it justice. I will work on it..I would appreciate any and all comments, and if you want to hear more, let me know.

The thing with exhaust is they are very subjective... everyone's tastes are a different... so when you say if anyone knows of a better sounding system chances are they are going to recommend the system they have on their car... End of the day, pick what system YOU think sounds the best.. and of course this is all based on widely varying video clips and differing speaker setups...

I don't think so. If I remember correctly they claimed they could not get the sound they wanted with an axel back set up. It might be worth contacting Corsa just to confirm though.....

Hey guys,

I don't know much about exhaust at all but I'm looking at getting an upgrade when I get the car.

I'm looking for a nice loud powerful sounding exhaust, where when your going down the street people will turn to see you. But of course not super, duper loud.


What exhausts would you recommend? If you can give me a few, then I can take a look at em.


Thanks

The thing with exhaust sis they are very subjective... we all have different tastes and measure things very differently... what is super, duper loud to you may not be loud enough to me...

Best bet is to get a good set of head phones and go through all the video clips... I know there is a lot to go through but IIRC you do have some time before you get your car...

I think I like the 2.0, almost sounds a bit more powerful and consistent.


I read that its $549, how much would I have to pay for labour since I have no idea how to do it?
