    No drone; they took the time to address the issue. I'm not trying to blow their horn, as I have just(!) sold aforementioned system in favor of a modified OEM SRT8 system. The Corsa system is comparable to the 5.7/6.1 OEM exhaust systems regarding 1st/2nd harmonic attenuation.

    I'm thoroughly DISGUSTED at the price they sell for, but it is a seller's market in this case.

    I am interested in a mild sound when idling / easy driving, much like the stock srt8 system sounds. But I would like a louder, more aggressive sound whe I really lay into the throttle. I want to scare people when I punch it, but not wake people up when I simply start the car in the morning. I would be one of those people that doesn't like the drone noise, but since I'm on the freeway SOO infrequently, it might be acceptable? I really just don't know.

    Then the SRT8 version of the Corsa system, in my opinion, would be appropriate.

    To reinterate why I sold mine, after installing Kooks LT's and Hi-flow catalytic converters, the system became significantly louder (db level) at all throttle positions and engine loads. For me it harkened back to when I was 18 with Thrush straight-through's right off the header flange. Sounded great(!), but shook the ground @ WOT. I like to think I have matured a bit since 1978 and have respect for those around me.

    That depends on the manufacturer; they probably offer something so check. THis then makes it easier for an exhaust shop to mount / weld. You definitely do not want a welded system front-to-back...

    So as of now it seems the end of the cats that mount to the header flange is straight. I could slip a collector on there and then have them flare it out correct?? And how loud will it be if I eliminate the single suitcase muffler. Has anyone got a sound clip.
