As most of you know I have been waiting on Corsa since January to come out with their exhaust. I finally got the guy to admit that they put it on the backburner for the time being. Which infuriated me since they have waisted enough of our time.
Tomorrow I am having the full Zoomers exhaust system put on my car tomorrow to test the performance, sound, and mostly the drone issue. Their marquee claim is that there is absolutely no drone whatsoever. They even put it on their website. I will be road tripping to PS this weekend to test with the wife in the car so I will know pretty quick if it has interior resonance. By both the exhaust system AND my wife!!
Only HP test I can do is what I will feel in the seat.
Upon my return, I will post my review as well as video and audio clips for you all to check out for yourselves to make up your own minds. If I decide I dont like it, I will go back to stock until Corsa comes out with something.
Zoomers wrote back to me on key issues here http://www.300cforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6252
Wish me luck,
:wave:

Hey Kid good luck with the Zoomers. I feel that you’re leading the way in experimental surgery on your beast- a real pioneer. I hope it works out the way you want it to and if not you can put it back the way she was.
Again- best zoomin to ya! :headbang: :wave:

Wow, I can't wait to hear the results. And I mean that literally.
Thanks for taking the initiative on this one, Kid. Hope it's everything you're looking for...lxforums sure loved it, hopefully we'll have the same feelings after you give us a review!

There were some exhaust clips over at LXforums that sounded great. Everyone whom purchased this system has nothing but great things to say about it.

Looking forward to it.

Kidcoastal, glad you are putting in the zoomers, been trying to get interest and information here for a minute with no real movement. Trying to get someone here to do the install but no one is real familiar. Please post your results.
Aloha

Okay, I was just about ready to give up on Corsa and go for the Borla, then read this. Now that I have the Volant installed I'm ready for the next step. Zoomers is not a name that is familiar to me, but their info sounds convincing and the reviews at LXforums are excellent

Good for you kid, I'll be looking forward to seeing you at the meet for a LIVE performance review!! I've waited this long, I can wait 2 more weeks.

wow

You all arent going to believe this until you see/hear it. Video + Sound to come. I want to run this by a few forum members to get their opinions before I go public.

Give me to about 1-2pm pacific time. I'm doing a couple more road tests this morning on the exhaust before I air the results. I only showed a couple members who are familiar with other exhaust systems that I know might be able to catch something in the audio/video I tok in case I missed it.
Check back in about 4 -5 hours.
8:26am right now.

RESULTS ON ZOOMERS EXHAUST SYSTEM are in!!

Boy was I nervous about this. Taking a chance on a company I have never heard of. Well, I'm humbled by my own skeptisism. You can make your own decisions on the video/sound clips.
I did every test I could on the Zoomers exhaust system. Idle, wide open throttle esp on, wide open throttle ESP off, freeway driving, the shift into MDS mode from inside the cabin, and local driving. I have taken a video camera with external microphone to document everything. Real simple, these guys at Zoomers have seriously found their niche in the automotive market. I honestly tried to find it somewhere but there is absolutely ZERO DRONE. They were right in their claim to fame. Especially quiet cruising between the critical 1500 - 2500 RPM's area..
The sound is exactly what I wanted. Low growl.. "more Porshe and less Dukes of Hazzard" as II Kings said.
I immediatly noticed a difference in Horsepower. See video clip WOT with ESP off. wow :hail:
They have links to a hemi dyno test on their site with a Dodge Truck. www.zoomers.com

I have posted all the results HERE
There is a link there at the top to show installation photos that I took yesterday. I was turned onto these guys with all the buzz on the lxforums zoomers exhaust
Where it had almost 10,000 hits. Read what others have said as well.

I am absolutely thrilled with the product, the company, and the install.
aperformance from Zoomers is in the process of becoming a Forum vendor. Once that happens, I will help organize a group buy which needs 10 people. There has already been one purchase and they even said we could start with mine. Before I introduce the price (which is very reasonable) I will wait until I get the go ahead from the site administrators....castrol or ekool.
Meanwhile here is the start of the interest list. This doesn’t mean you are committed to buy, just a list that you either want it for sure or are interested in the group buy after they become supporting vendors.
Let me know if any of you have questions or want to see/hear them on my car if you're local.

Wow Kid...sounds great. I'd love to hear it in person to compare it to the Borla I have.

Wow!

Thanks, Kid for the advance peek. Zoomers really know their stuff. I can only compare to the SRT-8 which is nice. This sounds even better. Here's what I want in an exhaust:

  • Low V8 "burble" on idle at the pipes.
  • Deep Mean V8 Growl on WOT.
  • Quiet when cruising.
  • No drone or other sounds.
  • Quality durable construction.
  • Nice, polished look.
From what you've described and your excellent vid clips, it appears Zoomers deliver. I too was sckeptical. I would be interested in a GB.

Again, Kid. Thanks for stepping forward. Folks like you make this the best car forum on the net!

kid, I emailed the video/audio to hubbeee first thing this morning and he replied simply, "cool, I LIKE it".
I too give up on Corsa, but hubbeee was trying to push meee toward Magnaflow - I was ready to pay for it myself in order to override him and go with Borla :27: shhh... Since he gave it the nod, if I go with Zoomer's, heee pay$!! :nana:

Unfortunately, now that we can't edit our own posts anymore, your list isn't going to work... but add meee as a definite possibility for this one!!
I absolutely want to see/hear it first- can we do that at the meet?? If you are nearing 10 orders before that time, I can arrange to meet you somewhere. Keep meee posted....

Outstanding Kid, I think I am going for one of these if the price point is good. I emailed the company and it is T304 stainless and carries a lifetime warranty. From what I can gather, it is not a bolt on like Borla but rather has to be welded up.
