No can do. I leave directly from work Thursday for Vermont for the weekend skiing. I likely won't see it until Monday night. Videos will be in March, car is put away for the winter and is getting torn apart for some much needed suspension work. I don't know of if I'll be able to wait that long, I may have to install it just to hear it, then take it right back off.

This is the exhaust I have ALWAYS wanted. However my setup is so custom now I would have had to modify this to make it work. But I would be lying if I said I wasnt a little bit jealous as well.

One of these came up for sale about a year ago on the Facetoob trade goup. I was shocked at how long it took to sell. I have resonators in the mids before my 04 Corsa setup. The sound is pure secks!

I was amazed when I did the Touring conversion those little feather-light unrestricted resonators brought the volume down from ridiculous to sublime.

Agreed. I'm not sure how they do it, but it makes it so much more manageable yet still, when you get on it, it's plenty loud enough.

Also, mine gets here today. So I'll be installing it tonight. I'm taking the car in for the new tires to be installed tomorrow (along with alignment and corner balancing) and want to have it on before I go.


Should be fun!

Got mine today as well, I'm happy.

Side note, Corsa was great to deal with. Returned every one of my emails within the hour, that was impressive

Also, it finally showed up. At 941pm.

So I just got done fighting with the back half of my cat back to get this sob to work again. It's installed and the car is on the ground to take it in tomorrow. I was nearly going to have to reschedule for the second time.


And now, it sounds just right. Has some volume, but it's not obnoxious. And with the other resonators I have, it's a bit deeper than the last time i ran this. Similar to with cats.

I'm also going to take it to an exhaust shop and have them fix the back half so it fits like it should. And then line up the mufflers.

What's the issue? Post some pics of it? I still need to order the Sport system so I can make it work, mine is just collecting dust.

The slip joint on the back half of the cat back was just squeezed in from being tightened down so it was a pita to make work. I'm going to take it in to have them fix the slip joint and then I'll be able to fix everything else as far as lining up the tips and what not.

Couldn't wait for March to come, so I installed it today and took it for a nice long drive, thank you rain for cleaning up the salt. Dear God is this exhaust intoxicating. Car has catted kooks with a vrx5 cam. Previously had the stock exhaust on it, and it sounded muddled with a slight drone at an 80mph cruise. Now it's whisper quiet at 80, but anything over 3k and it wakes up with a nice exotic growl. Some of the best money I've spent on the car for sure.

Glad you like it!!



I'm at a point where I'm going to have to buy another Corsa cat back or I'm gong to have to at the minimum replace one muffler and possibly duplicate the kick up pipes.




Ugh. This car never stops spending my money. And I've only driven it like 300 miles in the last 6 months.

I'll trade you after doing coilovers, driveshaft, poly rr bushings, new dba rotors, fixing a burnt wire, and new mickey thompson drag radials the number 7 piston popped on me. All those mods have at the most 100 miles on them. Oh yeah new gforce stub axles as well. The car has been down since April.

That's not awesome. Hope you get it up running soon.


This thing is down more than I drive it so I feel your pain. Though most of the time it's voluntary. Sometimes it's not. It spent most of 2015 down with trans issues. Finally got that sorted and drove it a handful of times without issues. It was glorious!

And mine sits new in box at my parents house in Washington. Too expensive to have Corsa ship to Hawaii. Still running the stock manifolds and mids, so no hurry til I get on to the next bucket list item (Kooks SS with catted mids). Just got hung with a blown head gasket on my wife's subi, so now lean on recreational spending funds. Really glad I got this though.
