Had the Corsa sport exhaust on a previous vehicle. (06 Tahoe) Sounded great.

The sport version has a heartier sound (read: louder) than the touring version of the Corsa exhaust. Believe it or not, this was a part ordered directly through GM so there were no warranty worries... not that there would have been anyway.

Re: This sounds rather nice. Anyone mod theirs??

I had the 5.7 Magnaflow installed a couple of weeks back, along with the black MOPAR sidesteps, and I think it sounds and feels great. I do have a drone when MDS engages (but I am saving gas) . I've read that drone is a possible trade off when installing a catback exhaust; this is my first ever.

The video clip of the Corsa sounds "tinny/riceburner" to me where the Magnaflow has a full and lower tone. Except for the drone the interior sound is great. The WK2 to me is a super quiet ride out of the showroom.

Re: This sounds rather nice. Anyone mod theirs??

OP, check out the sound clips on the exhaust subforum on top of the WK2 forum. You'll see Corsa, Magnaflow and Borla clips. As the other guys said, you'll get a bit of drone in MDS at certain RPM's, but it's not intrusive, and you'll need to hear all the alternatives to determine if you want something subtle or aggressive. It's really personal preference, ie: I love the Borla growl but the wife does not. YMMV.

Guys, what's the general price tag to get your exhaust tuned by one of these systems?

Yup, between $1,200 and $1,900, be interesting to see what JEEP will get for the Corsa setup.

I was quoted $891 for the Magnaflow system at my local 4 wheel parts store. Another $180 if they install.

I despise drone, which is why I will not get an aftermarket system. I love love love a good sounding exhaust and have put an exhaust on ALL my previous examples but the last 3 had a drone at hwy speeds and I won't do it again.....expecially for $900!
