I am deciding on exaust systems for my frc but I am concerned about too much noise on the inside. I want increased performance obviously but want my car to sound relatively quiet at idle and at cruising speeds. What do you guys think?? :-?

Thinking about a set of Borla, but I'm not too concerned about inside noise. The first Vette I ever rode in, many years ago, was a 63 SWC with 375 hp engine and side pipes. Couldn't hear the wunderbar radio when the engine was running, but you damn sure could out run tornados in Kansas.... Which we did. Which is why I'm driving Vettes.

I too like the Borla's - But I put the4 Corsa Indy Pace Cars on my 2003 coupe. They are almost as quiet as stock until you punch it - thenm they growl and will get attention!. I am thinking of going wtih Borlas on the 99 FRC, simply becuase they are cheaper than the COrsas. The double walled Pro tips on the Corsas sure do look extra good though...

I think the GHL (Magnums) system is one of the best. You want to make sure and experience these systems in person so you can decide.

Good luck :thumb:

GHL makes a great system. I love the sound on mine and the polished finish is beautiful. I just took a road trip to Indy and will probably install a partition for the next road trip. This would be only for the rare occasion when I would rather hear music than motor. :guiness:

i would strongly reccomend B&B quad-tip bullets, they look and sound the best bar none.

GHL started out making exhaust for Audi's, Porsche's, and other european exotics. I'm a fan of the GHL's and if you heard one at speed, you'll know why they are top notch! Good luck! :cheers:
I agree. :thumb:

Woohoo!!! 2000th post!!!

I have the Corsa Touring exhaust and it sounds good. Not loud
at all inside the car. I had Borla Stingers on another car and they were very loud, with alot of resonance. I would go with the Corsa's!
Here is the link to hear how each Corsa system sounds:

I have the Corsa Touring w/ classic tips. Much too quiet for me, so I'm looking to sale/trade for Borla Stinger or straight pipes, or B&B Bullets. If you know anybody looking, send them my way. They were installed in October '03, & have aprox. 10k miles on them.

I am having Corsa Touring and an x-pipe installed on Monday. After reading lots of posts and listening to some cars after I ordered them, I am concerned that they will be too quiet. Are they at least a little louder than stock? I'm not looking for race car loud.

Thanks,
Chuck
