Borla or Corsa Drone?

Those of you that have either a Borla or Corsa cat back system with LT headers, can you tell me how bad the drone is (i.e., resonating, low-pitch hum at 1800-2000 rom)?

Thanks mbspeed, I was actually leaning toward a Corsa anyway.

I'm going with Corsa, I love the popping at deceleration.
Just saving up my pennies.

Borla S-Type with Kooks LT's and love the sound..perfect.
Some drone only right at 70-73 MPH. So I either speed up a bit or slow down or shift to 5th...this only happens in 6th gear (manual). Wouldn't change it at all though!

Corsa hands down is the best for no drone...but I am not sure how it is with LTs...

I personally love the S type deeper tone, but cannot deny Corsa's product is top notch

I have a Corsa catback installed on mine L99, no drone, but a very nice sound at
WOT.

Exact same here. We just keep it in fifth which is absolutly no problem.

My Corsa has no drone even with all my mods. I had a MBRP before and it sounded great outside of the car but the drone was too much for me. Most will agree that the higher pitch of the Corsa isn't for everybody but the ability to somewhat control interior sound is the key for me. (quiet at cruising and LOUD when on the throttle). Btw, I installed the L99 kit on my LS3.

I just had 1 of the first Corsa AXEL back exhaust out and it is awesome. Check into it, plus it was cheaper than a cat back. If you want to hear it go hear.
