UUC exhaust impressions / video

Just wanted to share what I think about this exhaust.

I love the sound, and the price was awesome. The quality of the mufflers & welds seem great, and the tips look good too.

It is relatively quiet when cruising around, except at 3000-3400 it has a bit of drone. It gets loud enough under heavy throttle but never too loud. The fitment was good but not perfect. It took a little bit of adjusting to get everything lined up correctly. The instructions were also very detailed. Overall I like it a lot, especially for the price.

Here are a few clips:

Sounds really nice and exotic, but I'm still not a fan of the tips. So when you say drone at 3k rpm, you mean drone at highway speeds?

Yeah the drone can be at highway speeds, but it isn't terribly loud. I'd guess it is somewhere around 77-83mph

Very nice vid!

It will be of immense help to many who research the UUC Corsa.

Thanks for the vid.

Does launch control work while you're rolling a little?

That's their ad - "the no-drone system". I've had Corsa in the past on other cars and, frankly, it wasn't all that great. Their hardware frequently broke - I snapped some of their bolts in half no doing anything all that unusual. Plus, it did drone. I don't think there is any such thing as a "no-drone" exhaust - they will all drone at some harmonic level. It depends on the owner whether they "like" or "dislike" it.

Concur....my old STi with a resonator-less 3" pipe bosal-exhaust DRONED until I got rid of it for another exhaust. Drone is painful, and will cause you to get a headache on long drives. It is not just engine "hum" or "noise" - that is just the result of increased volume.
