I love the stock sound of my escalade. I don't want a monster truck sound. What kit are you guys running for a catback system that gives you better performance and sound quality?

corsa sport..just installed on mine..cat back...more hp and sounds great but only when you want it to..quiet for long rides and highway but nasty if you hit it...took me about 6 months to decide and research..was that or b&b in the end..but B&B is to loud inside the truck for me

Yes headers will make it louder. That's why you go with the Corsa touring with the headers.

Question,

All these new catbacks have an intermidiate pipe of 3" while our stock ones have a 3.5..Wouldnt it be better just to change the muffler and retain out 3.5"???

I am lookin for a perfomance exhaust that is a little about the sound of the stock. My cam makes my exhaust sould loud now, and i am not goin with corsa at all...Tried it three times and i am not goin back any more....

Has anyone tried the the OEM stuff? I know GM has a performance and touring system for around the same price. I just like staying with OEM products.

What cam are you using? What kind of HP and torque? Sorry for the hijack. I have used Magnaflow on my Suburban and had no cabin drone .
I have a 216 228 with a 114 lsa and 500 lift...I have AFM on my truck, so i limited lift to 500 at the valves

Currently pushing 420/400 at the wheels

Am talkin with a sales guy to get a better cam with more LSA, maybe a 224/236 but again with only 500 lift

My friend has one, but its too loud for me. In and outside....He loves it and thats more important

also do you have to retune the ECM with the new headers and exhaust or does it run fine on stock program?
I didnt tune at first, but my mileage was garbage, 1 3/4" kooks with cats and a 3.5" flang...Now its very decent...But i would like to see more...I am between 15-25mpg. And i love it when i am pullin my 4,000lb boat and it drops into 4 cylinder mode...

The OEM performance exhaust is too loud? It's louder than Corsa? Thats disappointing. Last thing I want is extra noise in the cabin.
