Hey, everybody. I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com, and this is my detailed review and install of the Corsa Xtreme cat-back exhaust system, featuring their black Pro Series tip, available for your 2011 through 2014 6.2L powered Raptor. So the Corsa Xtreme will be a premium cat-back option for the Raptor owners out there who really want to let that 6.2 scream, as this thing will be one of the most aggressive systems in the category. But at the same time, prospective buyers can look forward to a very quiet experience inside the cab of the truck. Now, this will be on the higher side of the price range, at around the $1,200 price point, and the install will get a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter from me. But I will have some more detail on that later on. Well, let's dive right into the sound a little bit more and talk about it, because in my opinion it is one of the highlights here with this particular cat-back, and in true Corsa Xtreme fashion, be prepared to melt some faces. Now, the Xtreme is the brand's most aggressive system they offer, and as such will get an easy five out of five on my Wake the Neighbors scale all day and twice on Sundays. Now, if you dig everything about the Corsa, you love the quality, but maybe not so much all the volume, check out the Corsa Sport instead. A very similar system, but with an added resonator to help keep sound levels in check. But one thing that really separates Corsa from some of the other premium options in the category is their patented RSC or Reflective Sound Cancellation Technology, which is basically Corsa's way of making this thing loud as all hell on the outside, but keeping things very quiet on the inside and absolutely no drone while cruising. Now, Corsa does state that you might see a little bit more noise on the inside if you do a lot of toying with the Raptor, just due to the extra strain on the engine. But with the sound covered, let's talk about the construction a little bit more with the Corsa cat-back. Honestly, as expected, nothing but the best here. Premium 304-grade stainless steel throughout, perfect welds, three-inch mandrel-bent tubing, I mean, this is what you want to see when you are dropping top dollar on a cat-back. This system does eliminate the factory resonator to help increase the volume overall. Now, this is a single side-exit system here, but with probably one of my favorite tips in the category, the black Pro Series tip, or black chrome, I should say, staggered four-inch tips in that black chrome. It just looks really, really good on the truck, guys. They do offer a standard chrome if you like. It's actually $100 less than the black chrome, and you can pick that up on the site if you prefer. Sticking with pricing a little bit more here, guys, if you're familiar with Corsa, you know this isn't a budget system. As such, you know you're going to be plopping down a little bit more dough when it comes time to putting this thing on your truck. In fact, this system with the black chrome tips is just north of the $1,200 price point, definitely solidifying itself in the premium price point, but still being a little bit less than some of your options from Kooks and also Ford Performance. Switching gears, let's talk install. As I pointed out at the top of this video, guys, 100% bolt-on job here from Corsa. So one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter with maybe an hour or two in the garage or shop before you're making some noise. I definitely recommend the socket set here to be doing most of your work, and I would highly recommend getting some penetrating oil, PB Blast, WD-40, something like that, as those bolts on the Raptor probably are a little bit rusty by now. To start the installation, you're going to want to remove that factory system, of course. This includes removing the two bolts at the forward-most flange nearest the Y-pipe. With the factory system disconnected at that forward-most flange, now you can slide the system off the hangers. But be careful, because it is all one piece and can be a little heavy to move around by yourself. So if you have a buddy around the shop, now would be a great time to grab him. With the factory system out of the way, you can now get to work installing that new Corsa Xtreme starting from front to back. Hang that muffler first, then the over-axle pipe, followed up by the Pro Series tip here. Save your final snug-up to the very end, so you can align everything perfectly, and your installation is complete. Wrapping things up here, gang, the first-gen Raptor is a very aggressive truck, from the looks down to the performance, and therefore I feel should have a very aggressive exhaust to kind of pull it all together. The Corsa Xtreme does a great job of giving the Raptor some serious bark while delivering some premium materials in the process. You can grab one for your ride right here at americanmuscle.com.

Could not be happier with this exhaust. Sounds awesome when you are on the gas but quick when just cruising
