Corsa installed with pics

I got my Corsa Catback in the mail last night at 7:30pm and had them installed by 9:00pm. Installation was so easy a child could do it! Okay pros and cons. The 4” tips look amazing and you don’t have those ugly mufflers hanging down anymore. The instructions were great and quality is topnotch. The exhaust roars at start up and at WOT but is just a little louder then stock at cursing speed.

I went to the dealer today and all the service techs came out to see what I did to the car, they said they could tell it wasn’t stock when I pulled up. I am very please with this catback and I can’t wait to get my LT headers on. Got to say Thanks to LMR for hooking me up they shipped them on Monday and I had them by Tuesday!

Just curious which long tubes you went with? I got the full ARH long tube x pipe and exhuast setup and i am hoping corsa makes a axle back system or i can grab two mufflers because if not i will be wasting exhaust piping.

Looks great
And wait until you get those long tubes are your car. It will be plenty aggressive after that.

Just curious I know you have to remove the bottom rear fascia to get the mufflers off, how was that? I am afraid of damaging my bumper removing it.

Is it me, or do the tips stick out about an inch too far?... You must have gotten some of their quieter mufflers. Can anyone confirm if they're going to have an "Xtreme" setup, like the Corvette systems?

more pics

I’m going with Kooks 1 7/8” X 3”. Here’s some pics from under the car, also they do stick out a little more.
Has anyone noticed that the factory pipe's are pinched down in three places almost a ¼ in?
I forgot to tell you guys I weight the factory catback and there about 70lbs.
I didn’t get to weight the Corsa the shipping box has 40lbs on the post office sticker but it felt more like 50lbs to me.

No, when your taking off your catback you just have to push mufflers back about 2" so you can drop the front of the pipe's and then just push the mufflers forward and down. Too easy.

Thumbs up

Very nice MOD007! I bet it sounds killer.
Corsa makes a nice cat back system. That car should roar with the KOOKS headers. Please post a video when complete! I am eager to hear it with the Kooks & Corsa together in sweet "harmony".

Do you have a manual or auto? Still wondering what some of these exhausts will sounds like when AFM kicks in...

Looks like this is a stick because it almost looks like there are the little resonators in one of the pics' of the H-pipe where that big 'ole pontoon of a L99 resonator would go. I couldn't say for sure though.
