    exhaust sound

    I thought about getting the Gibson bolt on exhaust system but I really didn't want my cadillac to be too loud. I just wanted to hear it when I put my foot in it. How would it sound if I just remove the resonator

    Corsa is even louder than the Gibson IMO. I just want a smooth low grumble when the gas is pressed

    How do you know? because of videos? have you actually been inside?

    Do what you want, its your car but there is a reason why Corsa advertised RSC and NO DRONE and costs what it does while Gibson doesn't

    Re: exhaust sound

    I don't know about Corsa in a Cadi, mine is stock. But I have the indy series in my Corvette with headers and hi flow cats. It's basically an open system from the block to the rear bumper. It is absolutly quiet and non existant when cruising but wild at WOT. I'd think the same quiet at cruising speeds would be available for any corsa system. I know dozens of fellow corvette owners and this is their experience too.

    Corsa use to have sound clips out on their website.

    Keep some aspirin in your car. You'll come to love the drone.

    Re: exhaust sound

    I don't have any drone in the corvette. The corsa comes in several sound types. I was out on their website..lots of sound samples. Lot of Cadillacs but most are Vs. Here is a link to an Escalade........ Not sure what engine is in it?

    Re: exhaust sound

    I'm pretty sure that the drone he was talking about would come from removing the resonator...not installing a Corsa.

    Re: exhaust sound

    I have Gibson on my car and don't have a drone problem and the exhaust sounds great, you should get the exhaust and leave the resonator and if you want a lower sound level. I removed the resonator with the gibson exhaust and I love it! I will post a link for you to see. http://youtu.be/FhUc4clQtzA this next video is before removing the resonator! http://youtu.be/5Pg4mwA7qME

    THe extra cost is for the name "Corsa"=600$ Plus cost of exhaust. Gibson has great hp and tq specs that you can actually feel! Drone, don't hear it, a sound that I get followed to stores and questioned about the brand of it, Gibson!

    Re: exhaust sound

    I wanted the same as you when I had my CrownVic. Had a custom cat back exhaust w/X-pipe installed with DynaMax Super Turbos. This was perfect, had just a little more rumble than stock while idling and during normal driving, and a little growl with WOT.

    With the STS I'm thinking about doing an H-pipe with MagnaFlows. I miss hearing that V8, too quiet now. At my work there's this Magnum SRT8 always showing off in the parking garage... I'll show him!

    I e been surveying exhausts on YouTube for the STS, and the ones I've seen from Gibson sound great under acceleration, but when the RPMs come back down it sounds like a heavy popping sound like an old F150 my grandfather had. I don't like the popping sound under deceleration.

    Can I put a system on that will allow tuning and won't gurgle and pop on the way down?

    Re: exhaust sound

    what video were you looking at because I haven't seen any on a cadillac North star that pop when you decelerate mine doesn't even do that, I've seen it on sts v's with corsa. it doesn't matter about what type of exhaust you got, if you got alot of flow its going to do that. anybody know of any company that makes exhaust manifolds for the cadillac sts northstar aside from Corsa? 1200$ per header is a big dent in the pocket
