Default CORSA cat-back system for Bonneville maybe this summer?

I wrote to the folks at CORSA regarding the compatibility of their cat back systems for other models. After spending many hours searching the web for some clue as to what worked, I decided to ask them if there was any chance something else would fit. Here is the response I got. I would suggest that anyone interested drop them an email, to demonstrate our interest.

Thank you for your interest in our products. CORSA Performance is constantly striving to bring new product to market, the SSEi is no exception. Unfortunately due to the RSC tuning within our kits, one of our existing systems would not work because of the associated chassis harmonics. Although very close, the Bonneville is still a different vehicle by volume. Outside of that, hanger modification and pipe routing would have to be changed.

Since the release of the GTP and Impala kits, we have planned on going to the Bonneville as well. Our best expected time frame would be mid summer of this year. Please refer to our website regularly as we will have all of the new press release information there first when the time permits.


Thank you once again,
Paul Santiago

Well, it did sound like he was talking about the 2000+ models, but if we can give him prospective sales, maybe they'll be inclined to produce for the older models as well.

I dunno, 92-99 guys generally don't have the budget the 00+ guys do, many 92-99 guys bought their car used, or are a second owner. However, the fact that the Bonneville is basically done for, doesn't bode well either for any gen. Many people don't set out to buy a bonneville to mod up.

Any 3rd/4th gen F body muffler will work for you Midnight.

This has been done for the STS, and several Aurora owners at the now dead GMForums expressed interest. Corsa agreed to build for the Aurora and only 2 or 3 sold, its a very expensive system but generally considered the "best"

I think Corsa has learned their lesson and will only build when adaquate interest is truly seen...ie you gotta back up your interest with real dollars.

Guys, you all respond but no votes? 92-99 guys, you could indicate your model year. Heck even a "no" vote is better than nothing.
