I've been wanting a Corsa system on my V since I heard Galen's on the way to RII, but as we all knew there was no system for the V's. NO MORE!! I got my Corsa's on now and I love them!! I ordered a stock XLR system (14156) knowing that it may not fit a V, but thinking that I could get it in. Luckily I called the Corsa Technical Service Rep. Got ahold of a great guy, Paul. He confirmed what I thought that the systems for the V is different from the XLR. The rear hangers are different on the H-pipe. What he suggested was a Vette C6 h-pipe kit (14166).
The Xlr system is on the left, the C-6 H-pipe on the right. Notice the hangers where the pipes "V" out. There on different planes on the pipes. The C6 above the pipes, the X's in about the middle of the pipes.
Here's a pcture of the stock sytem out of the car with the corsa systems.
A picture of the C-6 H-pipe on the car:
Also while I had the exhaust system off I replaced the Tunnel plate with a Elite Engineering plate
The blue strips is tape with the holes numbered so that I can keep track of whick bolt we have torqued, There's 36 bolts!!
The stock plate on the car:
The stock and new plate:
Look at the difference of the thickness of the plates:
The car with no tunnel plate and exhaust system:
Picture of the torque tube, see the exhaust hangers hanging loose?:

Here's some sound clips of the car without Corsa's and with the Corsa's. Let's hope this works!
The corsa System:
I LOVE MY CORSA'S AND THE SOUND!
If anybody wants the Corsa Technical Service Rep 800 phone number and the Ext number of the Paul that I talked too let me know. I hope he won't mind, he was a great help and everything worked and bolted and hung right up no problems!
