This review makes the Corsa system look pretty good and a decent price.  I was looking at the GM Accessories GM/Borla system which people say is is essentially the Borla touring cat back.  I really want the quad round tips, but I can't find a Corsa system with tips to replace the factory bezels.

I've read some reviews that say the GM/Borla is not that much improvement over stock.  Would like to wake up the 6.2 a bit but not to ATAK level.

It really is dead quiet and I'm impressed. It's even quieter than the Corsa system on my Vette on the highway. The best surprise is no funky DFM noises at low speeds. 

Thanks for the info. I dont think it will be to loud for me...the wife maybe but she will get used to it..haha. I watched your video. Excellent by the way. I will be purchasing it soon. Thanks again

If it’s cold outside. It can get a little growly!!  Just on start up. It’s a loud crisp growl then tones down quickly.  I love mine. I won’t put anything else on any other truck I buy.  The best part

Yeah mine is a lot louder than yours, but I think it has quite a lot to do with the piping like you said between your setup and mine. I do not have any flappers anymore, still have cat of course, and it is loud but yours is a little more toned down and clear (which I    like) and I most likely have more drone than you I would assume because of that.

 

I cannot stand drone on my perf cars, reason I do not have borla ever on them.  I run the Corsa Extreme setup currently w/o headers (yet) and its damn loud on WOT but causing zero drone, love that about Corsa and I  also think investing in a quality CB makes world of difference when it comes to drone.

 

I  have heard the B&B sound clips, I do love that sound as well.  I've never driven or been in a C5 to be honest, but I hear nothing but good things about that gen from those who have.

 

 

Its a great car! Its aging a bit which shows here and there. I've updated the look with a few minor things, the exhaust, all LED lighting and low profile pop up HID headlights. I've had several people (even at auto shops) ask me if it was new...its over 20 years old 🙂 I keep debating when the time will be to get a newer one. I could have had a C8 for what I paid for the Denali, but I just like the C5 so darn much I've never been all that motivated to replace it. When the time goes I will probably go to a C7 anyway. I keep trying to convince myself (especially when looking at exterior pictures, absolutely gorgeous) that driving an automatic Corvette wouldn't be the end of the world. then I drive the C5 again and change my mind right back, it must be a manual.

Not to make your decision any harder but if you're looking for something between the touring and the ATAK, that's exactly what the S-Type is. and its available with all the same tip options, stock, quad round, quad square, chrome, black, carbon fiber. something to consider.

I think magniflow also has the quad round option, they sound really good also. I don't know how it compares in terms of loudness to the Borla offerings though.

Another fan of the Corsa system, after having the system on my '03 Sierra Denali with the 6.0L.  I also liked the double wall exhaust tips. I'm also a fan of the quad round tips, which with the nice sound, Magnaflow is a close second.

 

That Borla S-Type system added another option I saw and that was the quad rounded square. That's a nice look and have seen a few aftermarket manufacture these SS tips in the same style. After listening to a number of sound clips of the different systems, Corsa and Magnaflow was to my liking, at least to my ear. 

 

While listening to sound clips of installs, I came across the Hooker Blackheart SS cat-back systems. That one had a nice tone with no reported drone and attaches to the factory exhaust bezels. Has my interest at $750, but researching more for user reviews. Currently on email notice when back in stock.

      I've had this issue for two months but it has been minimal until recently. While going anywhere above 30mph, at around 1200rpm if I give it about quarter throttle to half throttle i will hear a clanking/knocking noise. I have recorded it with my phone but you are unable to hear it at all. The other day while merging on the highway it made the noise much worse than it ever has. I am wondering if anyone has had this before, I know some of the 3.0 DuraMax guys have had it, but has anyone with the 6.2 had an issue similar to this. I will be taking it to the dealership tomorrow.

      Hey everyone, I recently purchased a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500. It’s a 4x4 Denali with the 6.2L and ultimate package. Overall it’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a truck and more.
       
      I live and work in South Carolina, but I’m originally from Upper Michigan (Yooper, eh). Husband to an amazing wife and father to two busy boys.

      I joined the forum to get some insight into maintaining my truck as well as some tips for upgrading smaller items.

      So I've tuned my truck with and it has made a difference from what I can tell. A couple of questions, however.
      1. Is there any way to truly fix the hard downshift from 3-2 and what I call lagging going from 2-3 under acceleration? I installed the 91 octane tune, disabled AFM, speed limiter and changed the shift points from 2-3. It seems like the shift point pressure is too much. The RPM's spike when i'm easy on the throttle after a stop.
      2. There is an option to change the axle ratio via the tuner which I thought was impossible because the axle is ratio is mechanically fixed, yes? I think I have the 3.23 but I am not 100% sure
      3. Side note, I have an Air Raid intake tube, k&n filter, installed a catch can and did a muffler delete. I took out the flapper valve out as well. Truck runs and performs better (sounds awesome too). When I go to pass cars on the highway, I can easily break 100 and you can tell the engine still has a lot left. I truly believe that this truck's engine life has been extended greatly after disabling AFM. Thanks guys.

      Alright, before you say you don’t hear anything let me explain first. This video posted below is my 2021 Trail Boss 3500k miles and has the most annoying exhaust sound. I know there’s some serious pro’s on here who could tell me what’s going on.
       
      Essentially any time I start it up high RPM, accelerate, or decrease RPM’s I’m greeted with this annoying metallic rattling noise coming from exhaust. 
       
      Took it to dealer who claims it’s normal (per-usual) and says it’s the liters I can hear in the exhaust tone. They checked exhaust donuts and heat shields and found no issue.
       
      However you can hear a rattle and what sounds like an exhaust leak. Was told it’s a flapper but it’s not, flapper is toward back passenger side. This is front passenger side. 
       
      I could best describe it as escaping air coming from somewhere near the manifold I’d assume. Almost like a metallic farting exhaust noise for lack of better description. 
       
      Videos to follow of noise while commuting.
