Corsa extreme exhaust review

I couldn't wait to get my 2010 SRT 8 , all the reviews on it all had a similar comment, and that was that the stock exhaust system was a bit mild and needed a bit more sound out of it.

While I was waiting for my car to be built I did all my research and thought hands down the Corsa extreme was the exhaust for me. I Read all the reviews and comments on different forums and heard the sport but not the extreme and people loved the sport.

When I took delivery of the vehicle I was impressed with the stock sound. My wife could hear me two blocks away coming home while I was going threw the gears. I thought wow it sounds great with just the stock exhaust system, the Corsa extreme must be awesome. One comment I read said that cops might pull you over because of the aggressive sound with the Extreme. I didn't want to be that loud but still got excited.

The horsepower gain also interested me a little bit, so I pulled the trigger and bought the Corsa extreme exhaust.

I had DC performance install it in the Los Angeles area. They did a nice job installing it but anyone with a half a brain could of done it. Its truly a bolt on simple system. DC performance said that they would Dyno before and after the exhaust for me and they said they always like to tack weld the exhaust in the event the connections got loose. So since I bought it through them I let them install it. Out the door exhaust and installation tax and all it was $1,700


Now for the review:

If I had to do it again, I would not spend the money.

There is absolutely no drone at all and that's not an issue. The car during Idle and cruising is quieter than the stock system. When you get on it hard its just about the same loudness as the stock system. The tone is different more like a foreign job or maserati, I wanted a kind of sound like an old school big block with a deep throaty sound. I thought that the extreme would deliver more of that kind of sound.

The sound clips don't represent the true sound and you really do need to hear it in person.

My recommendation would be to get the corsa extreme if horsepower is your main priority for a cat back system. But if sound is what your after stay with the stock system , I couldn't live with drone of the other cat back systems. I will say that the exhaust tips are *****en on the corsa.

Maybe the 2010 SRT have more growl than the earlier models, but in my case sound was what I was after not really the horsepower gain and it did not justify the money.

I took a rain check on the dyno and plan on using it at a later date when they do some custom tuning for me.

Not to be a jerk of ANY kind, I fully disagree. I definately think it is louder and a much better sound. That was all I was going for, not HP at all. It does sound more 'exotic' but lets face it, you'll never that 'old sound' with all the CRAP thats on the cars. Maybe if you ripped all the smog stuff off.
No offense al all

$1700 for exhaust and install... that seems a little pricey. I just ordered my new Corsa xtreme exhaust for $1350 shipped. And install shouldn't be no more than $100, but I live in a small town.

Concur, definitely louder then stock at idle and at WOT and yes it does have more of that "exotic/European" sound, but no drone! You still need to break-in the system, that will happen around 6000-7000 miles.

I have been on the fence about an exhaust for the SRT. The general concensus seems to be that none of the systems provide any noticeable HP gains over stock, and I agree with the first post that the stock setup already sounds great. I remember looking at a G8 GXP before buying the SRT, and I thought the Challenger sounded much better.

My car is still stock and will probably remain so. It seems to me that unless you are willing to go forced induction (6 - 8K...?) you are better off saving the money with these cars. My concern is resale....money spent on mods tends to have terrible ROI.

Then again, a Magnaflow or Kenne Bell would be lots of fun!
