Ya got me Moose... I slacked off on promised AVclip.
Sounds like they'll be available by new Corsa owners soon!
In my humble defense... Corsa had some nice AVclips available when they released the WK2 exhaust too... that I used to compare to other options!
Just getting back from Grand Canyon & Moab.
The trip was great, the Corsa & other mods now have 4500 miles and continue to work without any problems! Expected Oil consumption while breaking in engine... whole trip used about 1/8 quart per dip stick.
The Corsa Exhaust never developed any rattle or buzz, or never shifted in placement. Had heavy Moab mud, and a few minor skid plate contacts with rocks and none changed the Corsa exhaust install.
Only "new" sound was an embarrassing high squeal from disc brakes after a fun 7 mile sliding drive on a mud road during a hard rain! A high pressure washer easily corrected!
Had a good time on the Moab 4x4 trails, the Wk2 QuadDrv2 crawls up & over rocks amazingly, and the 4x4-Low Hill Descent feature is very cool! Not hitting brakes & letting computer control descent is very cool!
Favorite 2 trails in my limited exposure; the Gemini Bridges trial... up the narrow long & high climb to top gives ya a bit of thrill & the 2nd was the Long canyon trail. Shall return for more adventure next year!
The Corsa install & sound never changed through the journey! Sounded great when passing or pulling hard over 100mph... very sweet sound! Cruising decibels at 65-80 was a very mild low tone a little above the stock exhaust. Any downshift or increase in power produced a louder more aggressive tone... still very nice & music to my ears!
Climbing higher altitude mountain highways, pre-downshift low RPM lug-tuggin & associated downshifts never produced a drone.
After 4500 miles, Still fully satisfied with the Corsa! If I had ANY complaint, I would prefer a little lower decibel tone for the mid-throttle pulls... I really like the idle tone & full-throttle tone! The sound of the Hemi hitting higher RPM's is similar to a 60's mouse with Headers & Thrush collector cans!
Someone previously questioned the corsa clearance. I had no contact with Rocks or ground on various steep angle climbs. I followed a new Ford Explorer for a short time and witnessed bumper/body contacts where WK2 w Corsa had no contact.
BTW, the QuadDrv2 with the computer traction controlling climbs up & over rocks were beyond my expectations. Ford Explorer spun & experienced difficulty on the rocks that the QD2 just crawled over without spinning or problems... could feel the power being shifted from wheel to wheel while climbing.
I await the AVclips from new Corsa owners... if needed, I'll add too them!
