    Yesterday I picked up my 05'Commemorative from wintering at a Viper-shop and did the first 250mls for this year.
    I got some mod's:
    Hi-flow race cats, Borla cat back without X-pipes, K&N, urethan bushings, service and a SCT hi octane tune from RoeRacing.

    The performance is better and the snake feels more lively.

    But... I get lots of drone between 2,500 and 3,000 revs which doesn't mean the exhaust is too loud. No matter if top down/up, windows down/up.

    The drone produces ear pressure on the outside ear of the driver or passenger like at sea diving, up/down higher mountains or flying without good pressure balance. :crazy2:

    Any recommendations?

    Drone is no good/fun....Jörg.

    Stop driving. j/k!

    Obviously, something is wrong - have the exhaust changed/modified.

    Will do a drive Monday/Tuesday afternoon though - will call ya!

    Borla = drone

    Corsa = no drone


    Change exhausts or live with it, unfortunately.:smirk:

    that's pretty much the truth from what i've seen.. I did use some vortex cones on a B&B junk exhaust with major drone, and it cut it in about half.:dunno:

    The thing with the Corsas is their raspier note - quite a few like it but some like myself don't. I got the 08 exhaust catback from DC Performance used - worked out pretty well - it is louder than the stock 05 exhaust.
