    So close to pulling the trigger on this, and then I came across several comments in the resonator delete thread that claim they noticed reduced throttle response after installing. Can anyone chime in that has done this, and let me know their thoughts? Trying to get a larger sample! :inspect:

    I can't tell the difference other than the noise. Go for it.

    I experience no “throttle delayed response” with the corsa resonator delete. Definitely gives it more bite and is subtly louder... in an awesome way!! 99A4B5BA-D1DF-4F3F-99F8-83681A2F4F47.jpeg

    Total horse..... Same thing in the Hellcat community with the mid muffler delete. Peoples butt dynos are highly unreliable. One dude cry's wolf then a bunch of paranoid dudes say me to. It's been debunked. Consider the fact that many cat back aftermarket exhausts like Borla ATAK basically are a resonator delete with different mufflers and cleaner pipe. In the Hellcat it's a catback with no mid muffler. Most cat backs claim to add a lil power. Ever seen one advertise a loss?

    Definitely no reduction in throttle response and sounds amazing. People who don’t go with Corsa bc it’s more expensive just like to say that to make themselves feel better with 0 evidence to support their claims. The crackels and pops with this pipe is insane or at least on my car.

    Uuuummm, that’ll be a no. We don’t buy it because it’s more expensive for no reason. I sleep just fine having not paid that money for an x pipe. And what claim are we trying to support?

    In the resonator delete thread there are multiple claims that state the Corsa reduces throttle response with no evidence except their opinion. Corsa makes a great product and you shouldn’t make claims you can’t back up bc then it makes posts like this where someone wants a great product but has second thoughts when they shouldn’t.

    Me too...I've had my Corsa X for several months and have not experienced any throttle response differences....I will say, I should have went with the 2.75 pipe diameter LTH X pipe from Lethal Performance first to experience an actual same size pipe as the R model...then if the sound or possible base resonance in the cabin wasn't what I expected, I could always go with the longer Corsa's with just another cut farther down the pipe.
