Borla or Corsa exhaust?

So I'm having a real tough time deciding between the two here guys. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated. I'm gonna go with the Borla "S", or the Corsa street and either way it will be a cat back system.

Corsa is going to be a bit more tame and have less drone inside the Cabin. The Borla is going to be a little louder overall inside and out. Both are great systems! We carry both as well as a few other options, let us know if we can help!

Check out Doug Thorley Headers. They offer long tube (tri-Y config) or short tube ceramic coated headers AND full cat-back system (2.5 inch x-pipe) with introductory pricing. You could get the whole shootin' match (DT catback and headers) for cheaper than the Borla or the Corsa cat-back system alone. DT puts up really impressive numbers, sound great, and make real quality stuff. Great bunch to deal with too. Even if you don't go with them, it is worth it just to check them out. They are in the Exhaust clip thread and the vendor thread with pics, dyno charts, etc. Good luck.

I'd listen carefully to each. Corsa and Borla sound very different. Corsa is the best overall exhaust for someone wanting a very quiet cruise while still having an aggressive sound at WOT.

But Corsa has a unique sound (not really captured well on video) . Corsa has almost an exotic (European supercar type sound), while Borla has a more traditional (muscle car sound).
But both are unique in their own way and sound different than the rest of the exhaust out there.
Magna flow is traditionally more tame than both Borla or Corsa. Magna Flow has a mellow tone (more mature type sound).

I LOVED my Corsa on my 2002 Z28, it was the right sound for me. I'd really like to go with them again, but I'm considering others.

Is DRONE the interior resonating/annoying sound that you get with some exhaust?

That MBRP sounds pretty dang good. How does it stack up to Corsa and Borla, is there a decent site for a solid comparison?

I have the Borla S exhaust on my new SS and it has a low deep rumble. The Corsa is a great exhaust, but is a little raspy for me. I didin't go with headers but the Borla cat back system sounds great to me. I am not disappointed and I would do it the same way if I was to do it again. I don't really notice a drone that much. A little at about 80mph in 6th but it is only from about 79 to 82. I am very happy with the Borla!!

I'm debating between the 2 also, in all of the videos it sounds like the borla is quieter than the corsa. Although other people are saying differently. It's my daily driver so I was thinking of going with the corsa to avoid any drone in the cabin

This is my daily driver as well and I am very happy with the Borla. I will try and get some video up later. Other people that have sat in my car have told me it sounds perfect. The real test is when me and my wife finally went for a ride. She hated my 98SS because of the exhaust sound and how loud it was. She had nothing bad to say about this car - so it passed the wife test!!

I'm looking for those vids! I wonder if an axle back would sound similar to the catbacks?

Here's my Corsa vids on an L99... Pretty happy with the setup. Not too familiar with the Borla sound but the Corsa tips are the best I've seen IMO.

I'd like to see a video of the Borla S on an LS3. Drone is my biggest fear. The stock sound is very nice when cruising on the highway.
