Currently, I have Magnaflow and they're a little too tame for me. I was wanting to know if Corsa is a little bit louder? I know SLP and Solo are louder, but that's probably going to be too extreme for me once I get a cam. Thanks.

I love me my Corsa. It's about the perfect volume for me and no drone, of course.

I can't say for certain, but I would assume so. It's definitely one of the louder cat backs.

And people often seem to complain about it being too loud catless with LT's. Can't say I hear that much about Magnaflows.

Work on making the car faster, not louder. Let the sound be a byproduct of the engine mods. Once you do heads, cam and headers, see where you are sound wise and then change mufflers if you want.

That's great advice, but it'll be around 2 years or longer before I think about a cam. When the cam does come along and it's too loud with whatever I have, I'll just stick the Magnaflows back on.

I can't say corsa is louder but it is definately a different tone. Magnaflow is more of a deep rumble. The corsa is a higher pitch and sounds very different than the traditional muscle car sound. I love the corsa and get many compliments all the time. It effin screams on wot.

this is mine with cam, long tubes, and magnaflows. Its "quite" at idle but screams when wide open. Its a good balance for me. long rides its comfortable. I had Solos before and it was extremely loud. I couldn't hear myself think in the car let alone carry on a conversation
It sounds good, but kind of quiet with a cam. I know I can't actually go by a video. But I think I'm going to have to look at some axle-backs.

This explains why Corsa is a little bit louder {the higher pitch}. I noticed on Youtube, all Corsa vids are louder than all Magnaflow vids. Thanks, this helped me out a lot.

I will second this. I had Magnaflow before my Corsa and I'm glad I made the switch. I have a Livernois 2c cam with a 4k converter and anything under WOT is quieter than Magnaflow. However under WOT it absolutely screams, and has a very distinctive tone. Not to mention ZERO drone around town or on highway.
