Took a friend for a ride yesterday just so he could hear my Corsa Sport he did'nt tell me what he thought untill i saw him at the gym today. He thought it sounded like a ricer at high rpm, to say the least i was insulted but i did'nt make a big deal about it, but it did bother me a bit. Has anyone else get this sorta feed back from a friend regarding their corsa Sport ? :WTF

Don't be too hard on your friend. He had probably just been riding in a C6 with Borla Stingers. :laughing:

That's odd.....I've had friends ask me to start my Corsa enhanced Z06 at car shows just to hear the sound, and never heard any negative comments.

I've had Corsa Sports on 3 different C6s.

Thet sound far from a ricer at normal acceleration, Mustang like, and more like a Ferrari at full throttle.

However, they are too quiet during mormal accleration and crusiing.

Swapped to Borla Stingers #11744, I have to say, my C6 with the Borla Stingers is one of the best sounding cars I have ever owned.:thumbsup:

This is exactly why I ordered the Borla Stinger Sports (Installing them Friday) :D . Everyone's idea of what exhaust sounds good is different but I really wanted the 60's muscle car sound. Nice and deep. Alot of people tried to get me to go with the Corsa's but when I heard them they were just too Ferrari sounding for me (not a bad thing, just not what I wanted on a Vette). I was told I would not like the "Drone" w/ Borla's and would change them after a few days. Hahah no way. Yell03 is right on the $$. People confuse low purring with drone. If I wanted a quiet exhaust I'd stick with the stock system, but for me that's not what a Vette should sound like. If you're happy with the Corsa's then don't sweat it so much it certainly doesn't sound like a "ricer Civic".

I keep hearing all these positive comments about the stingers, and it is starting to sway me. I have heard them on several C5s but no C6s yet. How different is the C6 from the C5 system? Thanks.

Don't change. I sweated the details until I decided on Corsa Sport. I always recieved positive comments. You only need to please yourself and you made a good choice.

I agree with this comment.
Corsa Sports seem to be the overwhelming choice of the forums.
I have Corsa Sports.
Now I have headers and they sound very good with the Corsas. But not too loud.

The citicism of Corsa, is they sound a little 'high pitched' like a Europeon sportscar, Porsche, etc.

BORLA STINGER + C6 = BEST SOUNDING CAR ON THE ROAD

I have had more compliments on the way my car sounds than I know what to do with. Even my little old mother loves the way they sound.

If you want some vids, check out this thread I posted of my installation:

For what it's worth. I have Sports on my C5 and a friend has them on his C6. We both have X-pipes. I think mine are louder and sound better than his? The issue may be related to the air intake system. His is stock, and I have a Cobra Hood and Blackwing filter w/o accordian connector. Could this be the difference? I have an '08 on order, and I am not sure if I'd put the Sports on it based on my friends C6 sound. Maybe the LS3 with more inces and higher lift cam will make a difference too?

Had my mine set on getting a set of these, a x pipe, and a cold air induction. Then I read about guys who prefer Borla Stingers... Hmm...?

I made the expensive mistake of going with Corsa Sport first. Now have Borla Stingers no X pipe, and couldn't be more pleased.
