They burned up my tail pipes (Bullet cat backs and they were louder than I wanted. They're replacing them at their expense so I want to go a little quieter. I can't even talk on the phone with those on there.
Would you folks give me some input on what would be between those loud bullets and the stock mufflers. This will be my last chance to get it right. I lucked out on this one.
I like those round beveled ends that stick out.

I would check out the Corsa Sports, they're supposed to be a little quieter than the Bullets, but not too quiet. If those are too loud, I would move down to the Corsa Touring catback. Still deeper than the stock exhaust, but nothing like the Bullets.

FWIW, I had the Corsa Indy cat back on my '98 coupe...they were quieter than my stock exhaust inside the cabin when just cruising, but had a nice roar only when stepping down hard on the gas.

Now I'm runnin' the Borla stinger 2 tip on my current ride...MUCH louder than the Corsa systems, but I like the sound. :D No stealth mode with the Borlas.

The flowmasters are a little motorboaty. They sound kind of cheap to me, but that's all personal taste. The best way to find out what you like is to listen to some. If you have a 'vette club nearby, go to a meet. Otherwise, check out the video clips, there are tons of exhaust videos.:thumbsup:

Corsa Pace Car Pro, sounds just right and no drone at cruising speed.

I went with the Corsa Touring exhaust having liked the sound clips on their site and statements that they were a bit less aggressive than the sports model. Well, I was pretty shocked to hear this exhaust scream. After 3000RMP it is borderline obnoxious but definitely bad ass sounding. It quickly grew on me and I'm glad I have them~

Yea, mines a duplicate of yours :cheers:

B&B have three systems that I've found. The Bullets (what I bought) are the loudest, one step down from straight pipes. Just a tiny glass pack. Then the rout 66 and the PRT.
The PRT sounds like a good deal, they say it's a Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde. After so many RPMs it opens up with no muffler at all but until then it's suppose to be quite.
I haven't heard anyone say they have the PRTs. The Rout 66 is the touring version.
I'm liking the Corsa Pace Car Sport. I like the round ends with the bevel inside for looks, and not many brands have that.

I have a little time to look around, that's the last thing to go on after the fire damage is repaired. Still waiting on the muffler shop's insurance adjuster to look at it.

The web site says:

Corsa C5 Corvette 97-04 Pace Car Exhaust w/Tiger Shark Tips. CORSA Pace Car Edition – A bolder and more aggressive sound than the Touring Edition, and is most evident during full throttle - but comfortable and quiet during cruising speeds with NO resonance.

I, like those tiger tips. The problem is that under the picture it says the actual product may differ from the picture.

Well, here it is.
I ordered the Corsa Pace Car Exhaust w/Tiger Shark Tips.
I don't want to be too quit, but those bullets and and stingers are just too much. I like to spend a few days running mountain roads with my wife in Ark. I picked up the cell phone when I was driving with those bullets and the person I was talking to couldn't hear me. He kept saying "it sounds like you are in a race car!".

Hell, I was!! :devil:

They're great for someone that doesn't do a lot of driving. I would think you could get a ticket running those things though.

Well, now it's time to play the waiting game, :rolleyes:
I'll report back when I get m on.

I have bullets and headers and it's simply the sickest and unholy exhaust sound imaginable.

Men weep, women wet their pants, children drop their ice cream cones.:devil:

Any Corsa product you should be happy with, I am.
There is nothing like an exhaust with no Drone, specially
if you do alot of Hwy driving.
My Supercharged Grand Prix went thru 2 different exhaust
muffler types before settling on a custom modified version
with no Drone.
The dual Flowmasters or the Magnaflow's where just crazy in
the drone department even with a resonator.
The Corsa's will put a :D on your face.

Flowmasters all the way - there is no resonance or drone with a over the axle system - just a great sound at idle and a nice aggressive exhaust note when you get on it.
