My Stainless Works system has excellent build quality and sounds magnificent but all of the big name brands like Corsa, Borla, SLP, Magnaflow, are very good. They're all basically the same price... This isn't like the import scene where you have $4,000 titanium systems and what-not.

Your stock exhaust is stainless steel. Just like Magnaflow, just like Corsa just like Borla just like SLP. I personally wouldn't touch it until you start getting mods with tons of horsepower.

If you want to spend the most money, Borla or Corsa wins.

I like the sound of my spintech system. Good quality IMO. They will build ya about anything you want(stainless, 3", X or H, non necked down 3" etc) Cat back choice comes down mostly to a personal preference on sound. Try and hear what your thinking about in person.

Yes the OEM system is stainless steel, but includes 4 cats and 2 resonators, and 2 large restrictive mufflers, as well as a bunch of flat spots (clearencing) and kinked bends. We have seen as much as 40 horsepower gains from our full system without a tune! Add a cold air intake, a cam/valvespring swap, and a good tune and we made 107 rwhp improvement. 473 at the rear wheels for about 3k, which is starting to get you into the realm of the boosted cars...

Most of our customers choose exhaust as the first modification, simply because of the sound. Make it sound great, you make it more enjoyable to drive, and a heck of a lot more noticeable at the cruise-in!

The THR mufflers Tom Henry Racing pops on his cars are.....well, in short -- fantastic! He offers a range of Healthy, to Loud, to Ear-splitting...and they all sound GREAT. The Catback piping includes an X-pipe, and I believe is 3" all the way back.

Build Quality is impeccable, and the service from THR is great!

Just because it is expensive, doesn't mean it's the best.....


Go to the exhaust clip thread and listen till you find one you like.

The Corsa is worth every penny. I would spend it again in a heartbeat.
