Thanks for the offer. I was really hoping the corsa would be better. I put the corsa extreme on my Challenger last week and it is silent (in the cabin) at 130 km/hr so was hoping it would be the same on the jeep.

I think I will stick with the Borla or maybe just go back to stock. I have a feeling I will be upgrading the Jeep soon anyways.

You just stated that the Corsa Extreme is silent in the cabin while driving. . What makes you think that the same manufacturer for the same engine will all of a sudden be different in terms of quality and sound? I've had Corsa exhausts on 6 different vehicles and have never been disappointed. When it was installed on my Jeep I wasn't sure what to expect since the MDS was a new variable vs my older vehicles. With cruise control set there is no drone and very little sound in the cabin. The Borla was nauseating and could be controlled through the paddle shifters. There's a reason why it's $1k more than the Borla. It's called R&D. That's why it has no drone.

I do not think there will be a difference in quality or sound. I am wondering if there was drone at different speeds/rpms.

I did state the corsa was quiet on my car hoping that it would be the same on the jeep. The issue is my cars rpms at 130 km/hr are different then the jeep. Also, the mds sounds different on the challenger than it does on the jeep, when it kicks in. I can not explain why I just know that it does sound different.

Looking at Corsa's website not all their exhaust for this engine are the same for each vehicles. The challenger has an different exhaust for each the 6 speed and the automatic. Obviously, they need to be different for each application. So yes it is quiet in the Challenger at cruising and am very happy with it.

I posed the question asking for real world feedback on guys that have the corsa system in their jeeps. I had purchased the Borla under the impression that it had no drone. While there is no drone at 90-110 km/hr there is at higher speeds. I did not want to make the same mistake with the corsa, hence why I asked the question and asked for different speeds feedback. I appreciate your feedback and I am glad that each of your 6 vehicles worked out perfect for you.

I suppose I should have mentioned that I have the 5 speed in my original post and your feedback is based on having it on your 8 speed. Going through the thread it has been determined that these exhausts sound different on each model year.

Edit: Sorry, just saw the rest of your signature. Did you have the Corsa on your 2012 and if you did was there any drone at 80 mph?

Re: Corsa - Any drone at any speed?

I only had the Borla on my 12. Loved the sound and hated the drone. It was too loud at start up as well being that I sometimes go to work at 3:30 am. The
RPMs at 75mph are probably within 150 of each other from the 5 speed to the 8 speed. It irritated me that Borla advertised no drone because simply put thete is drone.

Can you do me a favor then? Would you be able to take yours up to 80 mph and let mds kick in and make note of the rpms? Sorry, if I am being a pain I just don't want to make the same mistake twice.

I thought of doing that for you before you asked lol. I had the video with the Borla but never posted it. I'll see what I can do tonight for you.

Re: Corsa - Any drone at any speed?

Just so you know the official op range for MDS on the '14 is 20-80mph with some reports of it kicking in up to 90. It activated at 80 in my 5.7.

Re: Corsa - Any drone at any speed?

I have had about a dozen people call and complain about the Corsa one saying he needs it off ASAP he hates it another with a wife who won't even ride in the truck another that complained directly to Corsa to take it back just a variety of stories. Basically they all say the the same thing the drone was just unbearable and one of the worst mods they have ever done.
This is not my experience just what we have heard seem out of all the systems the Corsa takes the cake for the worst drone available at least from the phone calls we get.

Re: Corsa - Any drone at any speed?

Just curious, any knowledge of engine/tranny combos? The OP has 6.4/5spd so that is all that matters here but I have a 5.7/8spd and anyone who has that and says they have a problem with Corsa drone is just plain off their rocker as nobody is more sensitive to it than me.
