Corsa vs Borla exhaust
Im finally pulling the trigger and getting some stuff done. I was all set on getting a Borla ATAK installed, but the guy at the shop is trying to talk me into a Corsa.

Any thoughts?

Kind of depends on what you're after...performance, type of sound, loudness, longevity, drone abatement...

Re: Corsa vs Borla exhaust
I personally don't like the raspy sound from the Borla. I have a Corsa on my WK1 srt and love it. So I'd vote for Corsa

Re: Corsa vs Borla exhaust
They both sound great in my opinion just see what you like from the numerous sound clips on youtube, however, the Corsa looks horrible IMO, the borla looks alot better when look at it from the back end. The Corsa's mufflers just stick out way too much maybe if they were all completely black it wouldn't bother me so much but that's one of the main reasons I went with the borla.

Re: Corsa vs Borla exhaust
Hi Guys, I have a question on exhaust and new car warranty. I will be getting my new GC SRT in a couple of days and want to install the Borla Atak cat back, will this void the warranty on the vehicle or just the warranty on the exhaust system?

Any assistance would be appreciated, I'm located in Australia..

It must be the combination of the AR headers with the Corsa cat-back that makes it sound "tinny". I have the Corsa cat back installed on my 5.7 and one word I could not use to describe the sound is "tinny". The thing rumbles at idle and roars under acceleration.

Have Corsa and headers on my stang and it sounds awesome.

Re: Corsa vs Borla exhaust
I have had a few call's with people telling me they are unhappy with their Corsa's and Boral's and since have removed them for the GtHaus,AR or Kooks full system's and are very now happy. The Corsa did not do for the 2012+ what it did for the 05-10's they said. They all said the same thing they hoped for it to be the same as the 05-10's but was just too raspy and droned at certain RPM's.
This is just some customer reviews not mine at all just wanted to put this out their in case everyone is expecting them to sound like the previous Gen Corsa's they don't all of these customers had previous Gen WK1 Corsa's

The Borla S with Magnaflow high flow cats, sounds amazing......but yes 1500-1800 rpms its drone.

Not really happy I installed the Corsa cat-back...I was fairly expensive, it reduced my low end performance noticeably, and the kind of sounds like a '59 Cadillac with bad mufflers..very rumbly and not a performance sound at all.
The quality is excellent though...and my top end is improved, for what that's worth.
Just one man's opinion. ..take it or leave it
