Technology/Sound

What is RSC® Technology?
RSC® or Reflective Sound Cancellation® is our patented technology that uses passive noise cancellation principles to facilitate the elimination of specific low frequency sound waves that cause drone or resonance. Visit our technology page for more information.

What is Resonance or Drone?
Drone/resonance is the low frequency sound waves generated by the engine. It is a low frequency, annoying vibration exhibited at cruise, often resulting in headaches and an uncomfortable driving experience.

What is the difference between Touring, Sport and Xtreme Sound Levels?
Visit our Sounds Page for more detailed information. Not all sound levels are available for all applications.

Where can I hear what it will sound like on my vehicle?
Explore our Sound Clips page, search your vehicle, or visit our YouTube Channel. Recorded sound clips may vary from the actual exhaust note due to the quality of recording equipment and the speakers through which it is played.

Performance

What performance increase will I get?
Performance varies by the vehicle and system chosen. On average, CORSA systems will deliver a 3-5% increase in horsepower. CORSA systems will dramatically increase free-air-flow, allowing your other performance modifications to achieve their full performance potential.

Will I get improved Gas Mileage?
A free flowing exhaust system opens up your vehicle's exhaust path allowing your vehicle to operating more efficiently. Driving style has a far greater impact on gas mileage than a performance exhaust system.

Do I need to update my ECU?
No update to the ECU is needed when installing a CORSA Performance exhaust system; although re-tuning of the ECU using an aftermarket programmer or custom tune may yield even greater HP & TQ gains.

Material

What size pipe do you use?
Our systems are specifically designed for each vehicle make to deliver the best sound with no drone and maximized performance. Larger pipe is not always best and we choose the diameter pipe that best suits a vehicle to maximize the outcome.

What material do you use?
All CORSA exhaust systems and components are made from premium grade stainless steel to maintain its lasting performance and appearance for the life of the vehicle.

Installation

Can I install the CORSA system myself? How long will it take?
CORSA systems are designed for ease of installation, but it depends on the vehicle and your mechanical aptitude. Having a lift to raise the car and a friend to help handle the larger components is highly recommended. Typical install times range from 1-2 hours.

Who can install my CORSA for me?
For professional installation locations, look for the Wrench Icon next to a Dealer's Name on our Dealer Locator

Do I need to make any modifications to my vehicle to install the product?
Most systems do not require any physical modifications to your vehicle. Carefully read the full installation instructions specific to your system. Installation instructions can be downloaded from the "Install/Warranty" section on a product's page.

Can I weld the system onto my car?
Welding is not an approved method of installation and will prevent you from making adjustments to the system and tip alignment. Welding will void your CORSA Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Do I need to cut anything during installation?
In most cases, no, but some of our kits require 1-2 simple cuts to help with removal and/or installation.

Will installing your system void my vehicle warranty?
According to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty act, Act, 15 USC, 2302, no manufacturer may void a vehicle warranty as a result of using aftermarket products. Only the warranty on the specific part or consequential parts can be affected by the installation of aftermarket components.

Misc

What is included with each system?
Everything needed to complete the installation is included. Each system includes all of the necessary instructions and information for installation.

What is a "Cross-Over Style" X-Pipe and what does it do?
An X-Pipe allows the exhaust to flow from both sides of the engine to mix and balance out; creating an improved flow and a more pleasing exhaust note. In some cases, the blending of the exhaust can help accelerate the exhaust gases enough to improve horse power.

Will I get a check engine light?
CORSA products are developed to work with the vehicle's stock tune to avoid error codes. In rare instances, a Check Engine Light may occur following installation as we cannot test every vehicle, in every environment, under every possible driving condition. If a Check Engine Light should occur, please call customer service at 1-800-486-0999.
