Default Thoughts on Corsa?

Whats is everyones thoughts on the Corsa exhaust. I like the fact that it gets rid of the resonators and is a lot louder and it eliminates the droning issue a lot of people are having.

Any thoughts on this exhaust are greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure how good it it sounds on a ram with MDS, I'm sure it'll be fine. Corsa is a very good brand. You'll get more power out of that as well as you would with say... flowmaster.

Corsa makes really good stuff but I don't think you'll get that much more out of it when compared to some others...taking price into consideration.

Now if you plan on a bunch of mods and are looking for every last hp then maybe give it a shot.

I am looking at it because of the sound clips I have heard. I also like how it is supposed to take MDS into account and not have that annoying drone. Is there truth to this?

I debated beteween the Corsa and Borla when looking for mine, because both took the MDS into account, I went with the Borla due to knowing the name better and price was about the same. Both have a second resonator upstream of the muffler that attenuates the higher pitch of the 4 cylinder mode, and it keeps a relatively even tone when switching in and out. I can still hear a difference, but I'm listening for it.

I had a Corsa Extreme on my 08 Charger R/T and loved it. The only thing that was a bit annoying was the sound it made when MDS was activated. I am also trying to determine if I sould put one on my Ram. There was absolutely no drone with the Corsa.

Great question as I have just ordered a 2011 RAM R/T and was thinking about the Corsa for it next Spring.

I have the Corsa Sport on my 06 Magnum SRT8 with Kooks LT headers and love it, but don't have MDS! Trust me I have had a few cat-backs and lived with different levels of drone and the Corsa is the best to cut it out (they all drone but some are very hard to live with).

I won't go back to Magnaflow on anything though. I know some guys swear by it, but had their 6.1L cat-back and it barely lasted one winter for rust and had mega-cabin drone. Maybe I got a bad one but think the metal they use is inferior to other systems like B&B and Corsa stainless steel......BUT, those are pricey :-)

One last comment on a cat-back for the RAM, but since I am new to this forum, I am sure the discussion on exhaust is extensive (like on other forums) but I have the Gibson headers and cat-back on my 03 RAM with a 4.7 and it sounds great and seems to have good quality. Not sure if they make a system for the newer 5.7s and how they are with MDS.
