    If you don't plan to install headers/cat-delete, then I'd pass on the B&B. When I installed on my coupe, it sounded almost identical to stock; however, after I added HP, my stock cats melted. I then installed a cat delete pipe, and it sounded perfect. I get compliments all the time.

    If you plan to install headers or a cat delete later, then I'd definitely recommend the B&B Catback. Imo, some of the other exhaust systems are too loud with headers.

    Not sure if you are in the area and want to listen to some in person, but we just wrapped up the new 3" exhaust with Borla for the Coupe V and it sounds pretty darn good! It is also compatible with our new rear diffuser. Take a listen:

    Borla/D3 Race Version

    Standard Borla Exhaust

    - Low profile exhaust layout.

    - A look underneath the car showing the smooth continuous mandrel bends.

    Please let us know if there are any questions.

    Thank you,

    Has anyone come up with a way to remove the center exhaust design on the coupe and make it more like the sedan where you have an outlet at each side of the rear face of the car? I would be very interested to see if someone can create something like that!!!! Anyone have any pictures of what that might look like?

    I have Stainless Works cat-back and love the way it sounds.

    Would a sw be a lot louder than just a corsa sport axel back on a stock car?

    The SW is a deeper sound and is not the high pitched, hollow sound of the Corsa. Also, SW is a true cat back where Corsa is an axle back. The axle back does not address the crimped piping in the factory system. The is SW corrects all of this and is a full cat back... and cheaper than the Corsa.
