It's been on my car for 5.5K miles.
It sounds so extremely mean.
I must be a whimp, because it's too loud for me.
I'm sure it will be perfect for most of you though.

After hearing Rob's B&B System w/ Resonator I think I would like to switch to that.

B&B is mellow and deep.

Corsa is mean and raspy.
The sound is very race like, NASCAR comes to mind.
True to it's rep, Corsa is quiet while cruising on highway but loud when you get on it.

My headers will be comming off for a Clutch Job, so I could be in a position to sell this whole system for a great price.

If interested, please let me know.

It's true, the Corsa with headers and F.F. Cats sounds like a race car when you go WOT. But I just get so many compliments on the sound from total strangers, I'm still amazed by it. People hear me going down the road and follow me into the gas station just to comment on it. I guess they just don't expect to hear a Cadillac sound like that.

Sounds like a great system.

And, Ernie's a topnotch guy and his word is golden. :thumbsup:

This is the absolute truth.

People are always asking me what kind of exhaust I have.
The sound is that good. :bonkers:
It's just more attention than I want.

I'll probably miss all that attention after I get something quieter.

Stealth, I need to get the entire exhaust system sold, in order for this to happen.

If someone wants just the Corsa, then I could split the system.
Although, in that case, I would probably sell just the Corsa and keep the Headers & Cats.
I'll PM you with some of my thoughts.

Thanks everyone for your comments and/or interest. :cool:

Its great to get a full exhaust used.
Little too much for my daily driver, but someones gonna be happy with this.

Whoever gets it, I expect a post and sound clip.

how much for all of it?

how much for all of it?

Would $1500 seem resonable?

Any less would make the swap too cost prohibitive for me.

That would like a free exhaust, seems reasonable to me.

As luke said, knowing Lunarx, the parts are perfect.

... $1500 ...:eek:

Any of you guys thinking about headers and a Corsa,
this is the deal to jump on!

I can't say it often enough how much I love my sound ...
head turning without a doubt, but not quite obnoxious ...
except at WOT. :cool:

I could be interested in the Corsa Exhaust if someone else's looking into the headers

That could be what ends up happening.
The Corsa is really the only part of the exhaust, I want to change.

I'm tracking those who expressed interest and I will contact you once I have this figured out.

Just ordered the 3" B&B (so my 427 can breathe better).

The Corsa (cut-off, after the cats) is available.
I PM'ed 3 previously interested forum members.
They get dibs asuming offers are fair.

If anyone else is interested, let me know, as it has to go.

It's currently configured to bolt to Stainless Works headers.

It would bolt to stock exhaust if you bought the lead pipes from Corsa.
I am waiting on a call back from Corsa w/ part# & price of their stock lead pipes.

Alternately, if you cut your stock exhaust, just forward of the stock resonator, you could have this Corsa welded to the stock lead pipes.

Another option is to get Kooks headers and the Kooks-to-Corsa lead pipes that Kooks sells.

It looks like I'm late... but put me in line for the Corsa exhaust - I'm very interested. Someone mentioned that Greyhound has pretty reasonable shipping for large parts like this - box it up and it goes from terminal to terminal under the bus (in one of those compartments) :thumbsup:

Is this the Corsa system with the resonator or with the x-pipe?

Yes, It's the Corsa w/ resonator.
Just like shown in the links above (excluding headers and cats).

I'll definetly put you next in line. :thumbsup:
tx_metabaron is pending, but I'll let you know how that goes.

Interesting tip on the Grayhound shipping.

so did you sell all of this?
I would like to buy it all.
My current plan would be to sell only the Corsa.
I'd like to keep the headers and cats.

Please email (corsa@lunarx.info) ( or PM) me if you would still be interested.
BTW - I'm very happy that you found a car and are already aquiring mods. :thumbsup: :worship:

FYI to those interested;

These guys are putting together a group by for the Stainless Works Headers

http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-cts-v-series-forum-2004/130754-huge-sale-all-stainless-works-products.html

If you also bought my lead pipes, then you would have a bolt-on solution.

So I'm now guaging interest in:

Corsa + SW Lead pipes cut-off after Cats
or
Corsa + SW Lead pipes w/ Cats

Corsa - i'm looking for fair offers.

Complete SW Lead pipes - I am looking for replacement cost of 3" Random Technology Metal Matrix Cats (so I can replace them).

If you are interested in either;
Please email (corsa@lunarx.info) (or PM) me with what you feel is a fair offer.
