Corsa - Any drone at any speed?

I currently have the Borla S and when I am cruising between 70-85 mph and the MDS kicks in the drone is almost unbearable from the passenger seat and very noticeable from the drivers seat. I know there is the option to shift in 5th and turns MDS off which makes a huge difference but I would still prefer not to have to do that.

My question is for guys that have the corsa system have you experienced any drone at any cruising speed? I just had the Corsa extreme installed on my challenger and there is zero drone at any speed with or with out mds engaged. My hope is that this is the same for the Jeep but I have noticed that the MDS on the jeep is a lot noiser than the challenger when they were both stock.

Thanks

'14 Summit 5.7l with Corsa Cat-back. Extremely minor drone at 30-40 mph when MDS kicks in and not in Sport mode, lasts 5 sec then exhaust does whatever it does and drone disappears. 0.0 drone at any other speed at cruise.

Re: Corsa - Any drone at any speed?

Wonder how that would compare to the srt? Do you know what RPM's you are at when going 80 mph?

Re: Corsa - Any drone at any speed?

God when MDS kicks in on my system it sounds like such trash... the corsa system sounds the best for our truck in my opinion, I kinda wish I got it.

I think that might explain why mine is so bad then, I am at 3000 rpm at 80 mph.

Ah, just realized you are a '12, therefore, a 5 spd tranny.....yes, 6th, 7th and 8th do settle things down at cruise with the new 8spd tranny...

Re: Corsa - Any drone at any speed?

Bad drone/loud at high speeds. Have to talk loudly when driving at hwy speeds. Took mine off after 1000 miles and installed GT Haus. Much better sounding, while there is a minor drone at hwy speeds with MDS on, a quick shift into 5th on the paddles takes care of that when it gets annoying during long drives.

Man you're crazy! Lol I had the Borla S on my 12 and it was loud at start up and droned when the MDS kicked in on the highway. I won't argue that the GT Haus exhaust probably sounds better than either the Borla or Corsa. The Corsa is still has the deep sound at start up but sounds rather stock while cruising. At 45mph in 8th gear it will drone. You almost have to force it to stay at that speed/gear just to notice it. I don't even have 300 miles on mine yet so I don't know exactly how good it sounds at WOT. It is however what I was wanting over the Borla. Cruising speeds it's as smooth as can be and sounds rather stock.

Re: Corsa - Any drone at any speed?

I just put on the borla atak and drive in Eco and no drone... I mean it is a V8 and has some noise... But I really don't notice anything different than stock, except at start up and when getting into it... I have to think the stock with MDS was actually worse

Granted I have a 2014 so maybe the 3 extra gears help

Thanks for the feedback. I am assuming that you have a 12 or 13.

Right now I just shift into 5th and almost takes care of the drone just wish I didn't have to do that. I honestly did not think the drone was that bad from the driver seat but this past wknd we went on a trip and the wife drove for a couple hours. The drone from the passenger seat was almost unbearable to my ears and I couldn't believe that my wife and daughter have never said anything before.

Judging by the posts above looks like the 8 speeds are a lot more forgiving with drone than the 5 speeds when MDS kicks in.

Yes, 2013. I like my 5spd and am happy with it. I think with the Corsa you will have the same issues that you have with the Borla. If you still think you want to go the route of the Corsa (and are looking for the black tips) I would be willing to sell you mine and save you a few hundred...
