    Is Corsa worth the money?

    I'm still debating on what exhaust to get! I found a pretty good deal on Corsa on ebay:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CORSA...spagenameZWD1V

    But is Corsa worth the price? Or should I just spend 200 or more less and get Magnaflow with the dual dual tips? Or something else?

    I wish I could line up like 10 fbodys with all different exhaust setups and hear them all in person. Ls1sounds has help me but its still hard to tell what they sound like without hearin them in person.

    What's your guys opinions on the deepest, throatiest, meanest exhaust setup?

    Its really pricey for just a catback. I have borla on mine, and wish that i hadn't spend so much on just a catback. I'm taking it of and putting on duals.

    A good cheaper option is magnflow without the dual tips- its about half the price of corsa.

    I don't believe it is.

    Some will disagree with me, but I can think of better ways to drop that $$ for bolt-ons.
    Magnaflow will give similiar power numbers and sound very nice.
    Then you will also have $300+ to put towards Pacesetters.

    well i have found a corsa catback from Custom SSI for 655 thanks to sroach20. I really want a system with a nice set of dual dual tips like on the corsa system. magnaflow has a nice set up but is about 670-700. also from the sound clips ive heard on ls1sounds.com corsa sounds the best, however, its very hard to tell without hearing them in person.
    think i should just go get some true duals ran with dynomax or something and get a set of corsa tips? lol but not jokin

    I agree, Only reason I have my Borla is I got a smokin deal on a used one with only 5,000 miles. only paid $300 for it. Magna flow is an awesome set up and sound great (I have a true duel set up on my truck and love it) I would get the Magna flow and then get headers like Luos said.

    If I had a Camaro I'd get Magnaflow but I have a TA and I feel as if I have to get the Corsa. They just look so damn good.

    You might want to pass on the Magnaflow duals because they are way to big.
    They look weird.

    My 2 cents.

    you can get a new magnaflow on ebay for $370 i believe. but performance should be mostly the same betewen the two.

    I dont disagree with the sound and performance but those cheaper magnaflow tips wont look right on a ta. TA = dual duals imo. I'm gonna check into a custom setup at my local custom exhaust shop. Can you buy the Corsa tips by themselves? just magnaflow muffler? I make me a magnorsa. . . sorda lol

    To each their own.

    I prefer the single slash tips on the T/A's.

    Magnaflow makes a kit with t/a style tips but like everything it costs more too. Search ebay, you can get a beter price on those too

    I'm talking about the dual tip Magnaflows. I think they are about 4" .
    Look on their website and click the sounds and it will give you a video of the rear end on a trans-am. They just look to big.

    once again just my 2 cents.

    ls1sounds.com has tons of different setups to listen to. and scan the boards. i'm sure you can find someone parting their shit out. and find a magnaflow used for 250 or even a corsa for 400. if you don't HAVE to buy new, then don't. people at ls1tech sell everything but their house. and sometimes, you may even find one of those.
