Why Upgrading to a C8 Corvette Aftermarket Exhaust System Just Makes Sense
The Corvette C8 is the ultimate sports car for many drivers, and it's not hard to see why. It's an outside-the-box decision with its seldom-seen rear-mid engine layout and powerful V8 engine. The Corvette C8 is nothing short of a ruthless supercar, able to lay waste to anything in its path. But when you really want to stand out from the crowd, you know it's time to turn to car enthusiasts' number one tradition: turning a great vehicle into an incredible one with performance modifications. While there are plenty of mods to choose from, you can never go wrong with an C8 Corvette exhaust system. An upgraded Corvette exhaust can benefit your ride in several ways, giving you the chance to have a lot more fun in the future. Here are our top four reasons why upgrading to a C8 Corvette aftermarket exhaust just makes sense.

1. You'll Get Better Fuel Economy
One of the most significant ways an aftermarket Corvette C8 exhaust can benefit you actually has to do more with your wallet than performance. Let's face it, with all that power behind the wheel, you're going to have to pay for it. Sports cars aren't known for their fuel efficiency, even though the C8 isn't the worst out there. However, a brand new C8 Corvette exhaust system will still give you an extra boost in fuel economy and ease the strain of filling up the tank so often.
Aftermarket Corvette C8 exhaust systems will give your ride the potential to generate more torque, making it easier to maintain a desired speed with minimal throttle use. With this increase in torque and decrease in throttle reliance, your C8 will need to use less fuel as you speed down the highway.
2. You'll Unlock Superior Performance Power
You bought your C8 for its insane power, but even on a supercar like the Chevy Corvette C8, your stock system isn't letting you reach its true potential. Aftermarket Corvette C8 exhaust systems unlock performance potential and increase your power for even more exciting drives.
Quality C8 Corvette Aftermarket exhaust systems feature larger diameter piping along with smooth mandrel-bends and a straight-through design that help reduce friction and let exhaust gases flow better than ever. The faster these gases flow through your Corvette exhaust, the better your V8 engine can breathe. The result is an engine that releases far more high-end horsepower and torque than a stock system can ever dream of – giving you a more powerful drive.
CORSA C8 Corvette performance exhaust systems have the power and design to unlock an extra 18 horsepower and 16 ft. lbs. of torque.

3. Your Exhaust Notes Will Sound More Aggressive
A Corvette exhaust, just like all exhaust systems, has a direct effect on the way your vehicle sounds. While the C8 is already notorious for its throaty, deep rumble when shifting, a C8 Corvette aftermarket exhaust takes this to a whole new level. An upgraded Corvette C8 exhaust can manage the airflow within your system more precisely, giving your exhaust notes an insanely aggressive, intense growl that turns heads the instant you start your engine.
At CORSA, we take our sound a step further with our patented RSC® (Reflective Sound Cancellation®) Technology. This technology gives us the unique ability to target and eliminate the problem frequencies that cause interior drone at cruising speeds. That means you'll get an aggressive exhaust note upon startup and acceleration (nine decibels louder than stock) and a comfortable quiet during those long stretches of cruise (one decibel quieter).

4. Aftermarket C8 Corvette Exhaust Systems Come With NPP & AFM Valve Options
The Corvette C8 is an advanced vehicle, but aftermarket C8 Corvette exhaust systems are designed to be just as sophisticated to ensure you're getting your money's worth.
NPP is the product option code for the C8's Dual Mode exhaust upgrade – it opens and closes a valve to control the exhaust sound. Aftermarket Corvette C8 exhausts come with optional NPP valves that bolt directly to the stock actuator motors, giving you the option to experience a Corvette exhaust with quiet start and "stealth" options when you need them.
AFM (Active Fuel Management) will improve your gas mileage by deactivating certain engine cylinders. This, unfortunately, causes resonance drone, which can be pretty unpleasant. C8 Corvette aftermarket exhaust systems allow you to choose whether you'd like to retain AFM valve functionality if you're sensitive to 4Mode frequencies to control drone and volume during different drive modes and throttle applications, without throwing a check engine light.
