CORSA Performance offers a wide variety of custom
exhaust systems for performance and family pleasure boats. Below are some of the
most frequently asked questions, and answers by our furnished by our Technical
1. What is a
CORSA Performance exhaust system?
CORSA Exhaust System consists of three major
Diverters - A diverter splits the exhaust into two exit paths: straight
out the hull and down through the propeller. CORSA offers two styles of
diverters: a permanently open diverter and a solenoid operated (Captainís Callš)
diverter that offers the choice of thru-hull, or a through prop exhaust exits at
the flip of a switch.
- Available as in-line, equalizer (with a balance tube), or silencer tip.
Silencer tips are transom mounted outside boat.
Exhaust Tips - Available in a variety of styles including angle-cut and
rolled-edge. See catalog for more details. All exhaust tips include anti-surge
2. Why choose a CORSA Performance exhaust system for
For several reasons including:
A. Increased performance, faster acceleration, and
higher top speed.
B. A performance look and sound.
C. When you want it to meet local sound laws - sound
reduction without loss of performance.
D. Premium quality high-grade stainless steel exhaust
system design and construction that looks
great and is backed by a 3-year warranty.
3. What kind of performance gain can I expect from a
Performance gains vary from boat to boat. Typically
the top speed will increase by about 2-3 MPH, which means about a 20 to 30 HP
gain. Boats with smaller engines (under 350 cu. In.) will not see much
improvement in top speed.
4. Will the use of CORSA silencer tips and/or
mufflers reduce performance or top speed?
No. The specific CORSA mufflers and tips are based on
the size and type of your engine, so it will not reduce horsepower, yet it will
provide the sound reduction that you need.
5. How much of a sound reduction can I expect from
CORSA mufflers and silencer tips?
Typically you can expect a 6dB reduction, which is a
substantial reduction in sound! CORSA muffler systems achieve this level while
still maintaining the desirable exhaust note that boaters love, only with
reduced volume to comply with the law and no reduction in performance.
6. What type of materials are CORSA exhaust systems
All CORSA Performance exhaust systems are made from
316L premium grade stainless steel that is far more stain-resistant than
ordinary stainless steels. CORSA components are available in a mirror polish
finish, and some components are available in black powder coat.
7. Do you have an exhaust system that will fit my
Most likely we do. We also custom build exhaust
systems offering a variety of designs and styled exhaust tips for most boats.
All that is required are a few dimensions from you to design and build a system
for your boat.
8. How expensive is a CORSA exhaust system?
Depending on the specific application, CORSA exhaust
systems typically range from $650 to $1,200.
9. How quickly can I get a new system for my boat?
It usually takes about one week to ten working days to have a system built and shipped. Unusual or complex custom systems may take a week longer to build.
