    By what I know Corsa has 2 exhaust tips but both come out on the same side. The system that has 2 exhaust tips coming out from both sides is the Borla exhaust. However regarding the Borla Ive read in this forums that there are some annoying noises when cruising in the 65-75 mph. However I cannot confirm that since I havent owned one of such systems.

    Re: dual exhaust

    hmm.....i heard that too. i kind of like the look of the dual exhaust though.

    i probably have some time to think about it though. the $800 price of the corsa touring means i'll probably have to wait a little while. just too many things to do and no money

    Re: dual exhaust

    I had a Borla dual system on a Suburban, one of (4) Borla systems I have owned, they all had a slight to medium resonance at speed, on cars with stick shifts you can get around it, but not with automatics. I have owned 4 Corsa systems as well, I have had 3 systems on my Corvettes and I have Corsa on my Escalade, no resonance at any speed with the Corsa.

    Re: dual exhaust

    i just don't want to ruin the 'functionality' of my truck. after all, it is a luxury vehicle.

    i don't know what i'm going to do. i guess i'll probably end up with the corsa system. but i want to get wheels or dvd first.

    Borla system does look cool with duals, I just did not like the interior noise on longer trips.

    Re: dual exhaust

    yeah.....my thoughts as well. after awhile that gets anooying. i want to have the nice look, nice sound on acceleration, nice sound on the outside, and virtually no sound on the inside. and of course, i want it for cheap

    I have the same opinion as you. Being a luxury vehicle the last thing one wants inside the truck is exterior resonance. That is why when I upgrade my trucks exhaust system I would go with Corsa Touring Exhaust. I just want a deeper tone on the outside with no resonance at all on the inside.

    I had the Borla dual unit on my escalade up until last year. It resonated too much for my taste. I replaced the Borla muffler with a magnaflow and it's so much better. Now I have the Magnaflow hooked up to the Borla pipes - looks and sounds very nice.

    Re: dual exhaust

    hmm....hadn't thought about that. how much is the borla system and how much would different mufflers be?

    Re: dual exhaust

    also, can you buy just the mufflers from the corsa touring system?

    I was able to buy the Touring muffler when I wanted to replace the Sport muffler.

    It wasn't the most economical method of trying to achieve a nice looking / performing / sounding unit. Total cost for both the original Borla system and replacement Magnaflow was about $800. If i could do it all again I would have gone with Corsa. But i have to say that the dual pipes from the Borla look a ton better than Corsa's single side exit.

    Tdogg,

    The word "cheap" doesn't apply with Escalades, IMO. I mean c'mon bro, you just spent $50,000+ on your ride. I'm sure you're weren't expecting anything to come cheap with these type of plush rides right?!

    Anyways, I know what you mean though. After buying my Caddy along with rims, I found myself digging alot deeper into them pockets!

    Re: dual exhaust

    well....the cheap comment was sarcasim because i basically want the best of everything from my exhaust and i'm not sure it's possible. luckily i didn't have to pay 50 grand for my truck. i bought it used and with the cadillac certified used warranty. i know all about paying big bucks for something. i traded in an eclipse that was highly modified. and the stuff for it was at least as expensive and in a lot of cases more expensive than caddy stuff.

    but machine, if you think about it, you got the look of the dual exhaust and a good sound, and paid the same price as the corsa touring system. where did you get the borla system?? do you have any pics??

    hey hcvone, how much were the corsa mufflers and where did you get them??
