Question Help me choose an exaust system...

I want a full catback exhaust system for my 2012 v6 and I'm down to three no wait...four choices.

1. borla
2. ark
3. corsa
4. Solo
I've never heard any in person so I just need peoples personal choices. It's hard because they are all nice systems and companys. I hope to get it around Christmas so let me know your opinion!

I ended up going with the ARK N-2 system. Got it through their website for about $800 shipped after their "moving sale". Seemed like a good deal at the time. I was looking for something that was a big step up from the stock exhaust, but not as aggressive as the MRT2's sound. We'll see how it is when I install them after my car comes in, but I think I made the right choice.

I'd look into Solo Performance as well. They sound amazing and are drone free. Check them out on our site. We have tons of other options as well.

Go Corsa, my Camaro was the prototype model they used for all the fitting and sound and I love it!

I would love to hear back on how much weight the Ark system cuts. Borla says they loose over 40 pounds and corsa is around 20. Pics of the Ark system looked really good.

Will do. I'll make sure to post some pictures as well after the installation including some videos possibly.

i have the borla catback and its only offered in the touring edition but its plenty for me and others say it sounds really good for a v6 so i cant complain i guess

I'm in the same boat as you OP. I want a catback exhaust but cannot make a decision. I wanted a SOLO catback until I saw it wasn't fully 304 stainless. So now I am looking at ARK DTS (not n-ii due to it doesnt have resonaters) or the corsa exhaust. I haven't heard too much about borla's.

I wouldn't hearing a few 2012 exhaust vids. Something tells me the sound maybe a tad different.

And if so......KM might have to create a 2012 section to that exhaust thread

MRT is also an excellent choice, however they are only offered as an Axle-back. Here are some videos below:

3.6L Version 1.0

3.6L Version 2.0
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=176790

We also offer Corsa, Borla, MBRP, Magnaflow, SLP, but our 3.6L customers seem to have decidedly chosen MRT.

You may want to reconsider the solo mach. I have it on both my coupe and now my vert. The V6 is a fickle engine and the solo has the ability to be tuned to your engine to eliminate any drone. The quality and cost are also a big difference than the others.

ok, so i'm starting to get nervous... i'm about to order the cherry bomb V8 extreme cat back from performance exhaust which only costs 399 and from everything I have read and researched (hours worth) it seems as tho it will work but might be a tad loud. Ok by me and don't mind the drone (can always weld in some dynomax or magnaflow mufflers if need be)

but my big question is.. why does it seem like only one or two people have gone this option when its so inexpensive?? I live in AZ so not worried about the rust ([plan to spray with high temp coating anyway) If someone has done this mod, please hit me up.
thanks

Ark has the best steel for the best price and it's cat back and it's loud.....I rarely drive on the interstate and my closest neighbors both have loud cars!

Most people have gone with the big names like Corsa, Solo, ARK, etc. However I think some of the inexpensives sound the best.

I'm personally gonna go with the Pypes Cat Back. Its somewhere around 5-600. That plus BBK LT's = mean as hell.
