Corsa vs Flowmaster

Just looking for any opinions on these 2 cat backs...Corsa vs Flowmaster? Looking to upgrade exhaust on new 2013 Ram Sport with 8 spd.

Question

Not sure you are comparing apples to apples here
IMHO Corsa, Borla and Magnaflow are far superior in quality to Flowmaster however if it is a 'sound only' question many people find great satisfaction with the Flowmasters.
Pick what suits your needs and budget - that's all that really counts.

"Sound" is really my primary concern, however, I do want quality and don't want to cheap out...I'm more than happy to pay for a quality product!

Many folks have a different name for Flow-Master - "Rust Master". I'd take the Corsa any day. My Magnaflows have been on nearly six years. They're a bit louder and deeper than when new, otherwise doing nicely.

IMO, there is no comparison between the two....

i have the corsa exhaust on mine and its been about 2 1/2 years now and its started to make a rattling noise like one of the panels inside came loose. sleeper style when idling. awesome power and great sound but now it sounds terrible just idling. thinking about putting on a cherry bomb now. want it loud and obnoxious to everyone.

If sound is your primary concern, I would save $ over the premium mufflers and get a Flowmaster.
I had Super 40 on my 04. It sounded great and I didn't have a quality issue in the 5+ years I had it. Now I have FM on my Camaro because I wouldn't justify spending that on exhaust. No regrets.

I had a Flowmaster on an 07 for about four years with no quality issues. I ended up swapping it for an AeroTurbine only because I liked the sound better. But for roughly the same price, maybe a little more, you could get a Magnaflow. I've heard nothing but good things from people who have them on 4th Gens.
