So i have read a ton on these forums and think ive made my mind up with Corsa, due to my high amount of highway driving, i dont want to be put to sleep by drone.

My questions are:
1. Is there a performance increase with the corsa cat back?

2. Will this system increase or decrease my MPG? im guess increase due to more air flow.

3. Any suggestions of what is a good price?

1. http://www.corsaperf.com/cts-v.htm

2. Fuel economy is controlled with the right foot and shift points.

3. It's worth it at full retail. Anything less is a bonus.

Corsa = no drone, even with headers

IMO Magnaflow is the best sounding exhaust. It is also the cheapest but it fits PERFECTLY and is very well made. There have been many many threads about the Corsa mufflers or resonators breaking down and sounding like sh*t but nothing about the Magnaflows as far as I can tell. Save yourself a headache and $400 and go with the Magnaflow setup! Here is a video of how my Magnaflow sounds with Kooks headers and high flow cats:

No complaints w/ my Corsa system... great exhaust for highway travel! Fortunately, my car came w/ the system already installed, so I didn't incur any costs. I am however, looking for high polished replacement mufflers & tips if anyone knows where to find... sorry about changing thread subject, maybe PM me...

I ordered my polished Magnaflow Canisters from Summit racing: http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?part=MPE%2D14326

They are double the length of the Corsa canisters so there will be some pipe work to make them fit.

I love my corsa exhaust they sound awesome even with headers... I drive on the highway and talk on my onstar all the time and nobody knows that I am on a speaker phone unless I really stomp it :)

Why did you order the Magnaflow mufflers? I thought you didn't like the sound.

No complaints about my Corsa; it came w/the car, so I didn't have to pay, either. I like the rumble at idle and normal driving, but it definitely opens up at WOT!
