I have had Corsas on my Vettes/Vipers. My guy at Corsa says they will shortly have an exhaust for the V. The stock exhaust looks OK but sounds lousy. I am sure Corsa will fix that.

I did the baffle bypass as a stop gap until I can get the Corsa .

The bypass is kinda novel/neat but not the same as a good Corsa. You get way too much interior drone and Corsa is the best I have ever seen at dealing with that. Also, Corsa will look better than the stock exhaust and based on my experience with my C5 and C6 Vettes it will not throw all that dust up on the bumper that the stocks do.

The Corsa on my SRT is the best sounding exhaust I have ever owned.

To each is own..............I just turn the baffles off when I get on the freeway. Really saves a lot of money since I bought at $100k

Correct....The V is loud when the baffles are open but there is a drone that did not exist with Corsa and the tone was much better with Corsa.
If Corsa develops a kit for the V, it may very well still include the baffles, otherwise how would the Corsa application on a V differ from any other XLR?

I'm probably a player for the Corsas on my V and hope I can keep my "Mild to Wild"

Jack,
It sure does turn heads when sitting at a light or cruising through a parking lot. I was sitting at a iight and a convertible was next to me. The guys next to me where drooling and said, bitchin car." I then turned the baffles wild and they said, "hey, how did you do that." I told them I just put the car in race mode. "Wild," was the reply............I said, "exactly".

I will check in with my engineer at Corsa this week to see how it is going and report back. As usual Corsa will take the time to do it right.

When the C6 Vette came out everyone was making aftermarket exhausts and rushed to market with junk. Corsa took their time and had a great one.

Their Viper systems are the best--anyone who can make that odd firing V-10 sound good knows what they are doing. My Viper tech has been amazed at the build quality of Corsas.

I have had 6 Corsas and several (unnamed others ) and Corsa has always been tops. The mild to wild is Ok and a cheap fix, but no comparison to the looks/sound of a good exhaust--not to mention that the Corsa will likely add a few HP. If you can swing for a $100 k car (now more like $77-$85K) a $1500 exhaust will be one the cheapest/ best improvments you will make.
