I'll definitely have to post a video. The ones on YouTube are kind of hit and miss but a lot of people put their phones/cameras way too close to the car which records like crap... Lol. The official Corsa one sounds really good though.
Curious to how that corsa will sound on a subaru.

Ordered a set of stiffer hanger bushings for the Corsa (heavier than the stock exhaust bc it's 3" from the catback flange all the way to the mufflers, including the Y pipe... The stock Y is most definitely NOT 3"... lol. Also ordered a flange adapter and a donut (just in case). Really hoping to get this installed before Christmas.

Kaboy42, where was that speed shop? Headed there to see family in a week or so for the holidays.

Started tuning my 97 z28 tonight (sig pic). Kills me how unsupported the lt1 platform is.
Corner of Madison Ave and Archer street. Just NE of downtown Greenwood District.

One step closer, all polished up... Got all the parts I need, just trying to find that pesky "time" thing... That things as hard for me to find as a 10mm socket...

I ran a Corsa cat-back exhaust for awhile. On a muscle car it has a deep & smooth tone during normal driving, but it really wakes up at upper RPM's. I bet it will sound good on your car.

Fitment is dead on. Really glad I went ahead and replaced the hanger bushings while I was at it. Love the sound. Definitely more noticeable anytime I'm on the throttle but if I'm just cruising it's really quiet with no drone. Oh, down shifting (blip shifting) is WAY more enjoyable now. I'll have to figure out a) a better way than my cell phone to record and b) where to host it so I can share with you guys.

The other pads weren't THIS bad but I think this pad wasn't sliding back which made it wear faster than the others.

Do you have Brembos front and rear? My rears shreak like a banshee and it drives me insane. All kinds of TSB's out there to try and fix it, but the jury is still out on whether or not anything is a long-term solution. I do need to get the redesigned shim because some people say it does work.

Yeah, these come from factory with Brembos. They weren't really making much noise other than an obvious dragging sound that I apparently had been ignoring... Lol. When I took my pins out they had brake dust caked all over them so I'm pretty confident my pads weren't sliding freely which is why that one pad was so worn. (I always set my parking brake and leave the car in neutral.) Shims were pretty nasty too so I cleaned them with brake cleaner then greased where the piston contacts them. We'll see how that goes. The guy at Oreillys recommended a high temp grease. Can't find the damn tube though so my luck I threw it away with plenty left in it...
