Flowmaster vs Corsa

I have had Flowmaster mufflers or full catback exhausts on every vehicle I have owned since high school...so naturally I put a catback Flowmaster setup on my new 392...I think it sounds pretty GOOD but I am considering upgrading to the Corsa Xtreme or Sport setup (less resonance but louder outside...better tips).

I'd like to hear one in person if any 392 owners near the Dallas area has a Corsa that'd be awesome...

But how do the systems compare? I realize the metal used is better and the Corsa setup is a 2.75" and the Flowmaster is 3"...looks like they both start with an X-pipe...but what about power output/dyno results one versus the other? Anyone know?

Do yourself a favor and look at the Zoomers catback as well. Speedligix has their "zoomers" catback for a decent price. The sound and quality is outstanding.

If you want absolutely ZERO drone then Corsa (extreme or sport) is the only way to go. I had a Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust previously and it sounded great on the outside. However, it droned like a b*tch at 2000 rpm which is where you find yourself at a lot when driving. I have the Corsa Sport for manual transmission (same as the MOPAR branded one for $500 less) and can 100% recommend it to anyone who wants a louder sound without the drone.

Corsa here, sounds much more aggressive at all times, doesn't drown out at higher rpms, and no drone. Get a lot of compliments on how great my car sounds when looks fail.

Corsa sport after spending money on magnaflow with glass packs. 1800 rpm drone got annoying for daily driver. Better performance with the Corsa also.

I am in Irving next to McArthur and Northgate...I have Corsa Extreme on my automatic 2012 SRT8 and I am very pleased . If you have an automatic then Corsa is my preferred choice to address the drone associated with MDS. If you have a manual transmission then flowmaster is a good choice, especially for the price. You are welcomed to contact me (PM me for phone number) and we can meet somewhere and you can check out the Corsa Extreme on the highway or regular city driving. The materials, clamp, craftsmanship on the Corsa is top notch but so is the price....BTW i am on my second set of Corsa Extremes. My first set was on a 2011 RT Plus which were installed after i removed my flowmaster Super 44 with glasspack resonators, so i think i can give an opinion on these 2 particular mufflers...

What's the difference between Corsa Sport and Xtreme? Just volume?

I did Magnaflow on my 07 Charger SRT and liked the sound on the throttle a LOT and the tone but it was too quiet overall and ended up going to Flowmaster as always there...

Thanks - will take you up on this...I have a manual but still considering the Corsa. My Flowmaster setup came with Super 40s and 3" pipes as well as an X-pipe and I think it's a great system for the $$$...Just trying to see if the upgrade would be worth it. Don't like the Flowmaster tips much even after powdercoating them black...the corsa tips are WAY better but costs hundreds of dollars just for the tips, I'd rather sell my FM setup and get a Corsa set if I am going to spend a bunch.

I am a Corsa owner in the DFW area and absolutely LOVE the lack of drone while driving on the highway. Secondly when getting on it through 3rd gear, the muscle tone around 4,000 RPM's is awesome. Go with Corsa, you won't be dissappointed.
