As mentioned exhaust sound is each to his own.... I personally do not care for the sound of Flowmaster's.

I was seeking ZERO DRONE, and the only one that could offer that to me was Corsa. I was also seeking a very refined sound, I wanted a nice sound at cruising, and have it become unleashed at WOT.

After getting the Corsa Extreme, I have not looked back.

Have a Corsa on my 300C SRT8 and have had it since mile 1. Best thing I have done to the car.

The tone is perfect when cruising and great when you are on it.

I feel the best system for the LX/LY Chrysler products.

Flowmasters here and no drone whatsoever. As far as sound preference "to each is own".

Corsa sounds like a annoying animal squealing IMO. Zoomers sounds like a video game, again IMO. Flowmasters sound natural to ME. Flows been around for 30 years for a reason.

Exactly! Cora's sounds similar to the Honda rice rocket exhaust. No thanks

Corsa and Zoomers, and the Borla ATAK are probably the best sounding systems for these Hemis...but as they say, you can buy a lot of things, but you cannot buy taste

Corsa sounds awesome I just wanted louder...Zoomers would have been a great choice but I didn't want to spend $1200 on exhaust.
I personally love the Flowmaster sound...I tried Magnaflow once before on a SRT Charger and like the sound a lot but too quiet for me. I feel like, being that they have been around so long, the "Flowmaster sound" is very classic muscle car. Could say the same about Zoomer sound as it has that slight glass pack rasp to it...but I prefer the Flowmaster tone personally. To each his own...I think you would have a hard time making this car or a Hemi for that matter sound BAD...

Dunno which Corsa you listened to.... maybe the V-6 version has a fart can sound to it.... as I have not listened that on the V-6 ( I know its hard to make any V-6 sound less like a lawn tractor ).

Yes, not under load its somewhat kinda raspy sounding, but when loaded/driving/hard acceleration.... but any exhaust running no load always sounds odd.

Under load the Corsa sounds like a nicely tuned AMG, or Brabba Mercedes SLS 6.3 liter.

Which flowmaster system do you own? The American Thunder system uses 40 series mufflers which DO drone, but don't take my word for it, it's stated on Flowmaster FAQ: What is the difference between a 40 series and a 50 series muffler?

What is the difference between a 40 series and a 50 series muffler?
The 50 series(moderate to mild) incorporates an internal tuning chamber that helps reduce interior sound level in the cab area of your vehicle, and provides a slightly milder exterior tone than the 40 series. The 40 series(aggressive) will generally resonate or “drone” inside the vehicle, around 1800-2000 rpm and again, around 2400-2600 rpm. The performance characteristics of the 40 and 50 series are the same, so it’s simply “a sound decision.
