Although more C7 owners are turning to C7 Corvette performance parts to bolster higher levels of performance and further build the C7's already high-level appeal.
With the power to create substantial gains in horsepower and torque as well as a more aggressive sound, a Corvette C7 exhaust is the optimal performance mod to give that direct-injected 6.2L LT1 engine a significant boost in the areas that matter the most.
Deciding to pick up a new exhaust is simple – finding the best aftermarket exhaust for your C7 Corvette can sometimes be more of a challenge. That's why the experts at CORSA PERFORMANCE are here to help. Check out our top picks for the best C7 Corvette exhaust system below.
Chevrolet's research and development team put extensive effort into increasing the quality and sound of their stock C7 exhaust system. Stingrays are available with "Factory NPP" (Nuclear Propulsion Package) or "Standard Non-NPP" options. The terminology might seem a little confusing, but all you need to know is that NPP is a multi-mode exhaust that can either limit your sound or kick it into high gear.
By using a special valve, your C7 Corvette exhaust effectively can "open up," allowing your performance car to have a more aggressive exhaust note when you want attention and behave more quietly when you don't.
While many aftermarket exhaust systems for the C7 ignore this fantastic feature, the expert acoustic engineers at CORSA have been able to incorporate it into their C7 performance exhaust options. The following CORSA Corvette C7 exhaust systems replace the dual-mode NPP option, allowing owners to customize their exhaust to suit the moment with both "Touring" and "Track" sound level modes.
