Whats the best exhaust

Just picked up my new camaro ZL1 thank God i finally got it, looking at exhaust and wanted to see which one is the best looking at the AWE or the Corsa? Any thoughts?

Well you just mentioned the 2 best choices so obviously done a little homework.

I've had Corsa on 4 Camaros and it's always been my favorite but I now have AWE and it's really hard to decide between the two. Can't go wrong either way.

We got rained out at the drag strip and were bored so did this video with both LT4 cars and equal setups.

There's a bunch of good exhaust systems. The only way to find your "best" is to hear it, so maybe go to a few car shows, races, rallies, etc. Mine has Kooks LT, crimp deletes, and AB, w/o cats, although I'll buy some this year. It's way too loud for a DD.

I’m happy with the Borla S type and carbon fiber tips, goes good with the other carbon on the car

This is one of those "to each their own" type situations. There are alot of good sounding exhausts out there for sure. If you can't hear one in person, videos are the next best thing. I went with the Flowmaster American Thunder Axle-Back exhaust. The tips come polished, but I had them powder coated gloss black to match the car. Sounds great, works with the NPP and I'm happy with it. No valve rattle, no drone, so it works for me!

Save the suitcase. If you ever go headers you'll want it back.

Congrats on the new ride!

I've known 2 people with ZL1'S that did the same thing!. They had headers, straight pipes or cat back exhaust to the aftermarket axle-back and they both said it was WAY too loud. So, they leave the headers and straight pipes, X-pipe, or H-pipe on but put the factory suitcase back on, and gives them the sound without the obnoxiously loudness. I only have axle-back but still have the suitcase in storage just incase.

I love MBRP too... I think the difference in the video was inside the car where Corsa was definitely a tad quieter and the blue car had the rear seat removed too.

I have headers and don't want the stock suitcase. I'm not alone here either.

I have headers and would never go back to stock suitcase. AWE with resonators is just right.

I'm sure not too many people have had both. My only experience is with the AWE and their Touring cat back, purchased this and then ordered the resonators as it was LOUD AF, still loud and proud but somewhat more acceptable. In the video above the AWE running away sounds better IMHO.
