Exhaust: Technology & Sound

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.

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.

CORSA's Patented Reflective Sound Cancellation® (RSC) Technology allows acoustic engineers to create a drone free exhaust sound, styled specifically to fit the personality of your vehicle. Each system is designed to increase vehicle performance, deliver an AGGRESSIVE SOUND under acceleration and a DRONE-FREE EXPERIENCE during cruise. Performance gains are not affected by sound choice.

XTREME
• Most aggressive sound level
• Deep growl at idle
• Bold during acceleration
• Screams at high RPMs
• NO DRONE DURING CRUISE

SPORT
• High performance sound
• Distinct rumble at idle
• Aggressive sound through the gears
• NO DRONE DURING CRUISE

TOURING
• Lightly louder than stock
• Quiet at Idle
• NO DRONE DURING CRUISE

Search your vehicle/part number and click on the product video.

NOTE: 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.

Exhaust: Performance

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.

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.

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.

Exhaust: Material

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.

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.

Exhaust: Installation

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.

For professional installation locations, visit our Dealer Locator and sort by Installers.

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.

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.

In most cases, no, but some of our kits require 1-2 simple cuts to help with removal and/or installation.

Exhaust: Warranty

Our Limited Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects can be found here.

Visit our Warranty Center to fill out a claim.

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.

Exhaust: General

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

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.

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.

Intake: Performance

CORSA intakes allow the engine to breathe at its highest capacity permitted by maximizing the air in-take and output of each revolution.

CORSA intakes make it easier for the engine to breathe, which should result in improved mileage. Driving style has a far greater impact on gas mileage than an air intake.

Intake: Emissions

CORSA Intakes are designed to work in conjunction with all stock emissions components. Search your product for specific CARB/Emission status.

Filters that receive an appropriate amount of oil will not harm your MAF sensor. When servicing the filter, it is important to use the oil very sparingly. More oil is not better and over oiling can cause problems.

Intake: Product Care

Cotton gauze pleated filters should be cleaned with Air Intake cleaning kits available at your local auto parts stores. View our Product Care page for more information.

Cotton gauze filters should be cleaned approximately twice a year or every 10,000 miles. If you experience a sudden decrease in mileage or engine performance, the filter will need to be cleaned. Replacement filters are also available through CORSA. View our Product Care page for more information.

It is highly recommended you use intake cleaning kits from your local auto store for best results. Petroleum based products will soften and destroy sealing edges.

Intake: Warranty/Replacement

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..

All CORSA air intakes carry a 1-Year, Unlimited Mileage Warranty. Excludes filters. Visit our Warranty Center to learn more.

Select replacement filters are available through CORSA Retailers.

Intake: General

CORSA intakes are tested to ensure they perform within the vehicle's stock parameters and should not cause a check engine light. If a problem occurs calls Tech Service at 440-891-0999

CORSA intake systems are optimized to maximize airflow and minimize water intake. Water inhalation is not possible unless the entire air inlet is submerged (normally requiring 18 inches or more of water).

All Cotton gauze filters come pre-oiled. After cleaning the filter, you will need to re-oil it.

CORSA carbon fiber intakes are manufactured using techniques normally reserved for the aerospace industry. Multiple layers of resin impregnated carbon fabric and proprietary thermal-barrier composite is vacuum bagged and baked for 4 hours in a pressurized autoclave to yield thin, yet exceptionally strong parts. Once removed from the mold, parts then receive multiple coats of clear UV resistant urethane and are polished to a high luster finish.
