Borla ATAK vs Corsa Sport

Thinking about getting a cat-back system in a month or so. Came down to two options. Tired of the quiet yet huge cans. Looking for something loud when I step on it yet not a lot of drone. Well have at it folks! Which one should I get?

Wrong. AFM sound and drone are 2 different things. With Corsa you'll have zero drone with or without AFM tuned but you'll hear the annoying AFM when it kicks on or off. As for Borla ATAK not having drone, you are the 1st person I have even heard say this.

Atak sounds very nice without headers, but with headers get stupid raspy.

I put CORSA Sport on mine. Love it!
But if I had a "do-over", I would go Borla ATAK.
Everyone says Borla is loud. Loud is good!

Would u happen to know the main difference between the corsa sport and the corsa quad exhaust on the ZL1? Thinking about going with the quad set up on my SS but not sure if the tone will be different. And from what I've heard the zl1 exhaust fits perfectly on the SS and that all I would need is a new diffuser while for the corsa I would have to get a new diffuser and quad tips to weld on. Just wanted to know what's the big difference between the two? Does one sound louder? Are they both a catback system? And which way would u go (corsa tips diffuser OR zl1 exhaust & new diffuser)? Thanks!

Plan on long tube headers? They make a huge difference in noise level/drone etc.
Atak with headers = too loud for a lot of people.
Atak without headers = sounds just right for most people.
Atak - does have drone on an L99 (never personally driven in an L99 with Atak that didn't have drone on the highway.

Corsa Sport - very loud with long tube headers
Corsa Sport without headers - sounds good - not too loud, little to no drone

I would go with Corsa over Atak if it were my car because of the drone issue. But I went with Magnaflow. I think Magnaflow with long tubes sounds exactly how a muscle car should sound.

Try Lingenfelter's axle back exhaust. From my understanding its its made by Corsa to Lingenfelter's specs. I ordering mine in a few weeks. It sound good at an idle and is pretty freakin loud WOT!!!!!

Borla Atak is one of the louder exhausts out there. It should not drone on a manual...an Automatic is a little sketchier...especially if teh AFM is not turned off. The Corsa Sport has zero drone, but is a lot more tame. One of the quietest exhausts you can buy.

I have 2" LT headers, high flow cats, Corsa cat back on my ZL1 and I love it... No drone at all! It's even quieter at cursing speeds vs the stock system...

I can't speak for the borla atak system...I choosed Corsa because they are known for " no drone "

I love my setup and couldn't be happier.... I also purchased my system from Maryland speed...

It really is all subjective. I had the borla atak catback first, just that and it was loud but not the loud that I wanted. I got a pair of high flow cats and it made the car perfect to me. Its LOUD. Start up in a garage is nuts lol, I have to really be careful to keep it low late at night. It doesnt sound too raspy to me, just really aggressive. High flow cats really put it where it needed to be though

The Zl1 exhaust is also a 3" system vs the corsa sport being a 2.5". They're both catbacks but iirc having a large diameter system without forced induction or headers can lead to power losses due to a loss of back pressure

I have the ATAK with LTH's and there are a few people on here that could attest to my car not sounding like a raspy V6 muffler delete...

Internet videos of exhaust are helpful, but should always be taken lightly. I listened to hundreds of exhaust clips when I had this decision to make. Listening to the same exhaust on different cars in different videos. Sometimes it would sound horrible, and sometimes it would sound awesome. It all depends on what type of device was recording the video, as well as the quality of the speakers you are listening on. You might as well ignore any video taken with a cell phone as most do not have a good enough mic to record the actual sound.

I personally recommend going and listening to a system in person from someone who is already running it locally. This is the only way to truly hear the sound you are looking for. This is what I did and it helped me make a much better decision. I couldn't be happier with my setup.
