The aftermarket is constantly making new upgrades for performance vehicles, trucks, and SUVs, which makes it fun to own one of these vehicles. That goes double for exhaust kits, where it seems like a new one comes out every week of the year, well before, and well after the SEMA Show. Ohio’s Corsa Performance is one of those examples. Recently, they’ve posted a video showing off an axle back exhaust system for the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro SS and ZL1 models.
Corsa’s axle back exhaust brings a number of benefits. Corsa’s axle back option is a far more complete package than just a performance muffler, but doesn’t require many of the alterations a cat-back system needs. The biggest selling point of this Camaro exhaust is a reflective sound canceling active valve system.
The exhaust features valves that work with the Camaro NPP valve system built into the drive modes. In stealth mode, the valves are closed. Corsa claims this creates a, “drone free experience.” Then, you can open those valves up and enjoy the sound achieved through 18 percent better exhaust flow. The system gives a great tone in addition to adding more volume. There is a 12 decibel difference between open and closed valves.
Recently, Corsa Performance introduced a full cat-back exhaust for the sixth-get Camaro. This axle back system is from that full exhaust, but lacks the X-pipe middle section. Because of that, this system is far cheaper, and doesn’t require any recalibration for the ECU. Install is also easier. Down the line, if you’re still wanting more performance and noise, you can purchase the mid-section to complete the exhaust system. Be warned, though, neither the full exhaust of the axle back system works with Camaro models fitted with the ground effects package.
For $2,057.99, this Corsa Performance axle back Camaro exhaust is a compelling buy for sixth generation V8 models, and is available with polished or black tips. The package gives you a louder muscle car, but doesn’t create any drone, and works with the stock NPP valved drive modes.
