Is the corsa cat back system worth the money? I personally think the stock exhaust sounds good and performs well, but if corsa can make the 6.1 sound even better and accelerate noticeably quicker then I will gladly throw down the $. I've heard sound clips but never heard them in person, so anyone who knows, fill me in! Thanks!

I've got a B&B on order.

I can tell you that after about 1000 miles, the stock exhaust is getting broken in and sounding better and better...

Heard the Mopar/Corsa cat back + Mopar CAI on a Jeep SRT8 in person at the SRT Track Experience. Night and day difference in sound over stock. More throat, more burp between shifts, a head turner.

has anyone dyno tested these systems against one another? personally i would sacrifice a few hp for better sound since i dont race much, but if theres one that blows the others away it would gain points

I fell into an opportunity to get the Corsa at no cost. I've currently got the Magnaflow (and love it, by the way). The MF will be up for sale as soon as the Corsa shows up. Not sure what it'd sell for, but if anyone might be interested, you can shoot me a PM.

Care to let the rest of us know how to trip? ;)

LOL-- well, I spent a few years involved in the truck media & aftermarket industries. One of the things I did a lot of was writing tech articles and how-to's for manufacturers, who in turn put the articles into the truck mags. So I got to know many of the aftermarket company and PR firm reps pretty well. I haven't done any of it for nearly two years, but about a month ago I got a call asking if I'd do a write up and install shoot of the corsa setup. I said yes.

So my magnaflow went on in July or August. Not sure how many miles are on it, but I don't drive it hard, there is no salt allowed on Seattle streets, and the undercarriage is washed regularly.

I'm trying to decide if it is worth it to get an aftermarket exhaust also. I would probably go with the Corsa. Anybody got any before/after dyno numbers or video clips? Thanks.

Scroll down, hit the #'s for the sound clips.

If you're willing to sacrifice some HP, then you could get the Zoomers, since they sound the baddest of them all.

I hate their tips. :(
