Default Corsa indy pace with borla X pipe?

Hi guys,
Im about to purchase a stainless Corsa Pace Car quad tip and possible a Borla X pipe to replace my stock 01 TI exhaust.
Was wondering with the extra weight added going from ti to stainless would i at least get any gains? i
m only looking for a little more of an aggresive sound at idle and wot, but i dont want to sacrafice any restrictions the new setup might cause from removing my ti exhaust. The car is completely stock at this point.
any one have this setup on their car? borla x pipe with corsa axle back? will it be better to do only the corsa axleback on my oem setup and scrap the borla x pipe?
thanks for any input in advance

lol thanks for the heads up. As long as the corsas arent more restrictive than the oem ones. Im not really looking for any gains, just a change in sound and something a little louder than stock. : D. no matter what we do the wallet gets lighter

The Ti's are OK, why do anything just for more noise?

Xpipe will work no matter what - stay with that and do not keep the stock H-pipe!

You will not notice anything really at all, not even a seat of the pants Dyno - sound will be different for sure but don't let that have you think it is a .250 second faster in the 1/4 mile

I am running 701 RWHP and 582 RWTQ through my TI's

Here I did this Autopsy on the inner workings of the C5 Z06 Muffler, which makes tons of power and it quiet and does not weigh much at all - truelly a secret weapon in my book!

Thanks,Matt

C5 Z06 Titanium Mufflers are not restrictive just quiet and light in weight -

The "STOCK" C5 standard mufflers are the restrictive ones "NOT" the C5 Z06 Titanium!

I went to the LG Big 3 3" Mufflers and took them off and went back the the TI's after one week! - Lesson learned!

Thanks,Matt

1. for a stock car there will be no HP gains.
2. the sound will be spectacular. I have those pipes. Idle is dull, there is no drone - but WOT it is really great. Not a low rumble - more of a higher pitched exotic sound.

Everybody talks about drone, and I have the Corsa Pace Cars as well as the GHL Bullets. (two different cars) The Bullets have a great idle and some drone - but no significant volume when you get on the gas. It's a good sound, but tame.

The Corsas are ridiculously loud at full throttle, but somehow manage to be subdued at cruise and idle. Add Headers and ridiculous goes to insane. You won't believe it till you hear it.

I put headers on and took the cats off and it was ear bleeding loud!!!!!

Corsa's sound great till you put on headers. I replaced mine with the TI's and I can now give the car gas going down the road without blowing everyone out! I use to get these looks!

thanks guys..so looks like i wont be adding any power but so long as nothing is lost. Im mainly worried about the extra weight that will go on there (hardcore4sure made me get goosebumps ) and if it will be a restrictive exhaust compared to my Ti's. Im mainly looking for a little more sound from the exhaust, headers are on the list in the near future also.
