2009 CTS-V stock exhaust vs. Corsa axleback exhaust
I strongly advise using earphones for this video for best audio output.
I compare the stock mufflers with the Corsa axleback Exhaust in my 2009 CTS-V (automatic) at
Revs at rest
Acceleration on the freeway
Ambient noise at freeway speed
The primary changes with the Corsa are loss of drone at low rpms, and louder, deeper Exhaust tone at WOT.
670HP CTS-V Corsa Sport Exhaust and Kooks Headers
Tail lights and reflectors tinted, and Corsa/ Kooks Exhaust. Front grill was also painted a gloss black leaving the caddy badge alone so it would pop out. All work was done by Autowerks. (GM badges removed on both sides).
(Louder in person)
0-120 in a 2009 CTS-V: one handed
Do not try this at home, especially if you only have one arm. Wish I had a passenger! Anyone care to join me, even if I am a bit insane?
Cadillac CTS-V Exhaust Comparison: Magnaflow VS. Magnaflow and Kooks Headers
Before and After Video of Magnaflow Catback Exhaust with and without Kooks 1 3/4" headers and high flow cats on a CTS-V. Car is louder overall, as well as deeper and raspier with the headers on. V also has K&N CAI and various other mods not relevant to the Exhaust note.
NOTES: Car in backround is 2003 Terminator Cobra. Car is smoking at beginning of second video because the car was warmed up (it was cold out, and didn't want to rev the engine cold).
2013 CTS-V Wagon with Stainless Works exhaust
Stainless Works Exhaust installed on my 2013 CTS-V wagon yesterday. I added a KPE/Airaid intake as well. Car has only 1000 miles on it so I did not rev it beyond 4k rpm as per break-in instructions. None of the video does the Exhaust sound true justice, it sounds great!
Part 1: A few revs while the car is still. Best audio quality, uses Canon HF200 with DM-100 directional microphone set to 90 degrees.
Part 2: External sound while moving. Equipment is GoPro Hero HD2 mounted to rear bumper.
Part 3: Internal sound including some intake noise. Equipment is GoPro Hero HD2 mounted to window.
2009 Cadillac CTS-V with KPE intake and Corsa Touring exhaust
Freeway onramp "launch" of my modded Cadillac 2009 CTS-V. Mods are: KPE intake (gives a GREAT Supercharger whine), Corsa Touring axleback Exhaust, Wait4Me 2.55" upper pulley. This is followed by ambient noise at freeway speed and a quick look at the freeway mileage.
Filming equipment: Canon HF-200 (HD camera) with image stabilization off, Canon DM-100 directional mic with "dead cat", and StickyPod
