Corsa alert!
If you own a 2006 C6 and are considering a Corsa Exhaust system, do so but wait as there is a new system being developed for the 6speed paddle shift Corvette. Corsa found out that since the gear ratio on the paddle shift is different than the regular automatic they must redesign the system. I got the sport exhaust and ordered the touring which I wanted and now must wait to return it to Ecklers to get the new system.
Just for your future information. |thumb|

Hi,
You scared me for a minute. My Corsa sports were delivered today, but I have a manual. Can't wait to get them on.

The Best exhaust and Most agressive sound is still Billy Boat Bullets everyone at the vette shows last year loved the sound of mine and said that's what a vette is suppose to sound like. Get this there're cheaper than corsa and less restrictive which means MORE HP |thumb|

Be careful with the B&B exhaust if you have a 4speed auto. I just took mine off because of the drone at around 1500 rpms. B&B said they would be kind enough to send me their new x pipe for the automatics for another $475.00 and I could sell my old x pipe on e-bay, they would not take it back for a refund. I'm selling the whole system to someone with a six speed stick, and B&B can kiss my a**!

Thanks for the info. |thumb|
I've had Corsa exhaust on 4 different C5's, last year's C6 and am completely satisfied with their quality, customer service, and price. |smile|

Thanks for the heads up. I was planning to order a Corsa system in the next couple of weeks and now I'll wait to see what comes.

Got the updated Corsa Sport system for the paddle shift auto and they sound great. Very close tolerance in the tunnel so make sure someone knows how to install properly. Took several tries to get it right. Worth the wait as they have no drone at any rpm and sound good when you get on it!

High quality, well made exhaust! |smile| |smile|

I installed the Borla Stinger Catback System on mine which is an aggressive system and have no complaints about drone. It sounds great and increased fuel mileage a bit.

I opted for B&B PRT's with 4.5" oval tips, no headers.  I had the option of utilizing the X-Pipe, but decided against it, since I have a 6-speed.  Performance wise, my C5 is not jacked up, so I thought the tone of the PRT's was appropriate.  Then again, Baskin Robbins makes 31 flavors!
