Pictures would be appreciated. If there is enough room I'll reuse the whole flange assembly off the stock system. Thank you.
Tight and tricky but a good muff shop can do it. The real challenge is that the entire Corsa system is the really good 300 series stainless steel which is a real bitch to work with for bending, etc...
The main fitment issue is that the Corsa system has the rear muffs to the side and the tis angling out to the bumper notch, whereas, the stock system has the "suitcases" pretty much straight behind the bumper notch and the tips just head straight back to bumper.
Pics attached in case you want to evaluate the possibilities. Pic1 is corsa/driver looking up from ground. Pic2 is stock/driver looking down from above. Pic3 is corsa/pass looking up from ground and Pic4 is stock/pass looking down from above. Pics 5/6 show the angles I mentioned.
However, here are the reasons why you should not do it:
1) You will completely void the lifetime corsa warranty, guaranteed!
2) The exhaust will not sound as designed since the tips are actually a key part in the overall exhaust design (i.e. exhaust note). What will it sound like with stock tips? Dunno.
3) We might actually still pull this package off.
