Doesn't matter... there's not much to it... I'd just take it to a good shop.

Most repair facilities and muffer shops can take care of it in about an hour. I've had customers goto places like Midas and have them take care of it.

I took ours to a highly rated muffler shop in the Fort Worth area and paid 175 bucks, install was perfect.

My dealership actually REFUSED to install my cat back system. Which I thought was funny, cause I got it from Borla and they MAKE the GMPP aftermarket exhaust.

Its not hard at all, I did it in 45mins by myself with just two jack stands on the back.

It's just 16 bolts, I wouldnt pay some one more then $50 for this job. If you were in Austin I'd say just bring it to my house with a 6 pack.

Funny you say that, that was my currency!!! Cept it was a 12 pack and by the end it was "THAT LOOKS EVEN TO YOU RIGHT?!?!"

On a serious note, what a shop will charge you to install, you can buy a floor jack and two jack stands, and be JUST fine. Go borrow a torque wrench from your local parts store cuz your Corsa requires each bolt on your exhaust clamps to be torqued. You can use your manual torque wrench aka your arm, but I always prefer just to use the specs they give you.

Are you sure I thought it was 25 ft-lbs? I did mine about two months ago so I could be wrong.

Well if you do it your self just make sure you push the pipes all the way in. It sucks after you get done and your wife ask why is one tip longer?

Don't think a dealer is going to warranty a Corsa Catback system... Won't be any different than having it done at a muffler shop only you pay very high labor costs at dealer.

Here's mine...http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29401

Definitely louder than stock, but over all a pretty tame system. But it has to be due to AFM...

Much Much louder than stock at WOT.

$175.00 is extremely steep to install a catback. But I do understand that's the going rate at a lot of muffler/exhaust shops.

On my 06 GTO, I had a muffler/auto repair shop try to charge me $180.00 to install a catback. I told them no thanks. I ended up having a little shop by my work do it for $50.00. It took them maybe 45 minutes taking their time to get everything lined up perfectly. Usually something as simple as a catback exhaust, I'll just do in the driveway on a couple jack stands.
But I had just had my gallbladder removed and didn't want to tear anything.


So I'd shop around. To be honest, anything over $80-$100 for a catback install is highway robbery.

Dealer told me they would and why not, GM has a part number for it so they could order install (though i would order it through this web site)

I install them for $100. The only difference between you paying someone to install them and doing it yourself is READING/FOLLOWING the directions your were provided with your purchase. You pay someone all you want...just realize unless a shop is willing to allow you to get involved in the project or show you what they are doing...your really spending your hard earned $'s for continued ignorance or lack of self confidence.
