Corsa Vs Borla

I had in mind to get everything done in Lingenfelter to my Camaro. However, I think the Lingenfelter Axle Back exhaust is too aggressive with sound. I don't want something so choppy.

This brings into question other exhaust recommendations. Corsa vs Borla. You can tell me to check out youtube all day on these, however no one has any really great HD sound videos out there from what I found.

Which will have the best performance and which will give me a little more mature sound, but not too aggressive?

This^^^^^^all day long. I've heard tons of exhausts and the Corsa on the LS3/L99 is divine. I've heard the Borla Touring and ATAK and I thought the Touring was just okay and the ATAK was like listening to a good audio system with the graphic EQ set flat. Corsa is authoritative and sounds fantastic from within the cabin.

kiteboarder85,

Now a days most if not all muffler systems are made out of stainless steel for durability so I see no real difference in brand except for the individuals exhaust tone and how loud it can become. I'd say get which ever sounds the best and the cheapest in cost.

In about a month I intendt oget the ball rolling and get my first Camaro with the factory ordered "high performance" muffler system (cat-back). Despite the price for GM's own version I think it'll save me a headache or two.

Borla vs. Corsa ? You haven't considered other brands ? I always say youtube videos are best with headphones. Head phones with my video sounds exactly like "live".I have Cherry bomb but if I was to change them I would go with stainless works retro chambered.

The best is being able to hear them in person, or take a ride in one.

I love my Corsa Cat back.

The alluminized steel factory pipes are friggin heavy. Corsa and Borla are both crafted from T-304 stainless steel which is the highest grade used in exhaust parts. Many other after market manufacturers (Magnaflow, Flowmaster SOLO use T-409 SS which is certainly an upgrade over alluminized steel but its not the same quality as 304.

I just think Corsa's tips look better and they just flat out sound better. They sound even more amazing with long tube headers.

As an aside, for the V6 you can't beat the mirror polished T-304 ARK DT-S.

SIXJAK,

It appears to me that good tone/sound is much associated with the application of tube headers especially on the V6's. Like the others said one has to pick the cat backs/axle backs carefully otherwise what you get might not be what you want!

I'm generally planning on getting the GM brand of exhaust due to void any possibilities of voiding the warranty but on You Tube the standard exhaust sounds pretty good as well. In that case I'll save $1K plus tax.
