Don't forget Top Speed. I have one and it sounds awesome.

Corsa isn't an option with stock. It has full 3 inch pipes. You need to crush the clamps at the connector, no beuno. Never looked at Manzo or AWE.

Seems like AWE uses 2.75 inch pipes. That's good, makes it an option. Will check Manzo and Top Speed.

Top Speed's goes down to 2.75 at the tails so it fits snug.

Corsa works fine. My car came with it. Although there are signs of exhaust leaks from both sides, there aren't actively leaking so someone must have fixed it along the way.

I have the Manzo and love it. It does drone about 83mph in 4 cylinder mode which is annoying if your valves are always open. It's not nearly as bad when they're closed.

I like how every one thinks the factory exhaust is so great. When changing my x pipe I found that mine was leaking at the clamps and at one of the welds at the crossover.

2.75" is definitely ideal if you plan to retain the factory mufflers. I was not impressed at all with Corsa's "crush to fit" design. Borla got it right, and it sounds like a few of these others have as well, but I've only personally laid my hands on stock, Borla, and Corsa. I would like to inspect firsthand some of these newer offerings that weren't available years back though.
