Retorqued my Corsa's today, pics follow. I didn't take any install :(

I can't stop raving about these mufflers. SILENT, droneless sound when cruising or relaxing, but a mean, high end snarl when you get your foot into it. Perfect.

That's a nice looking kit. I would like to find something that has stock looking tips as I prefer to keep things stock "looking"

 

BTW, sweep up that floor :D

 

 

 

Haha it's a shithole =) Yeah I'm not totally into the 4" ricer tips yet :/

 

I think I'll get used to them. The sound of the system is unbeatable in my opinion. Keep it mind it is not loud like stingers or slp lm's though.

 

You could always have a decent welder weld on some different tips if the Corsa system is what you want.

You know what Kaylan, you may like my stock mufflers! I believe you have the GT "auto" mufflers which are slightly quieter than the manual's. Plus I have the "factory" polished tips from my GT Appearance Package.

 

All Ford all stock. May be a good mod for a GT500 but the sound was too mellow for me.

 

That set up looks cool. What is the cost for the parts? Looks like you did the labor yourself, nice job.

 

 

Thanks! $592.74 with free shipping:

Please note that is a VERY high price for an axleback kit, almost a ripoff. You can find Flowmaster kits for $250, Borla S type ( Stingers ) for $450. I just wanted the nice compromise the Corsa gives: no drone and good Wide Open sound. It was worth it for me. Sounds very "tuned" and high end. Whisper quiet on the freeway when cruising.

 

Another note: axleback swaps are very easy on these cars. If you can turn a wrench you can do it. But BUY A GOOD TORQUE WRENCH. Tighten shit properly so you don't have problems later. The clamps need to be 45 ft pounds. 18 ft pounds on the isolators.

EC: The link to the muffs says that it increases the HP 13, is that true. Also says that the system bolts on. How long did it take you to install? What is fairly easy to do?

 

 

The HP quote is WITH Corsa's X-Pipe swap. I don't know if I believe it. Not much power to be gained, only sound on these new stangs.

The X-pipe is shown in there. I think most of that 13HP quote is coming from the X-pipe as it makes more power past 3000 RPM than the H-pipe.

 

If you have worked on cars before, even simple stuff like changing a tire, changing oil, maybe a radiator..... you can handle this easily. It IS pure bolt on.

Thanks for the instructions. Looks like your car is brand new too. Could you send me a couple photos. Do those car ramps that you have work in the front. If so what brand are they. MT GT/CS is 1-1/2 inches lower tham your GT and I need to buy a pair of ramps that will work for my car. Thanks for the help. Rob.

Model ML66 on that page. Will easily work on the front even if you lowered your C/S. Expensive ramps but SO worth it.

 

Here's the thread I made when I got it:

Chris: thanx for the info on the ramps. I am ordering them tomorrow. The photos of your car look great. :bandance: Nice ride, real head turner. The GT appearance package does look great on your car. I love that look and ordered it also. How does one post a photo like you did so it is below the typing and not huge.

Thanks! I resized them using Photoshop at home. Use a size like 1024x768.

 

I just saw your pics of your white C/S. Freaking awesome car. I really wanted a C/S but wanted all dark interior so was SOL!

 

From their page:

 

Use these specifications to measure your car to see if the ML66 minilift is for you:

 

10" from start of ramp, the minilift is 2" high.

 

17" from start of ramp, the minilift is 4" high.

 

24" from start of ramp, the minilift is 6" high.

 

 

 

Measure your vehicle:

 

where the tire will first touch the minilift to the front of bumper.

 

from the lowest point of the front of your car to the ground.

 

Match it to the specifications listed above.

 

 

Measure your car, I can almost guarantee it will work though I had like 3.5" clearance.

Thanks for your help. I am doing a few minor cosmetic things to the car and will try to post some photos next week when I am back in town. Rob.

EC,

 

Thanks. I'm really wrestling with my FR/Borlas. LOVE the sound, but don't like the cabin resonance at 65mph. I wish I could hear the Corsas on a GT500, but.......looks like I may have to be the guinea pig!
