C7 Corvette Exhaust Systems
The process of customizing a Corvette for performance can be approached in several ways. One of the best things to do when ordering performance Corvette parts is to upgrade the exhaust system. A car needs to breathe just like a human does. A C7 sucks air in through its intake manifold to use during combustion. Removing the waste products after the cylinder fires is the job of the exhaust system, and if it does not do this efficiently, the gasses that are left behind will impede the next round of combustion. This keeps the Vette's small block V8 from turning out all the power possible.
Corvette Mods carries a full line of aftermarket exhaust systems for the C7 Grand Sport, Stingray, and Z06. These systems and parts come from leading manufacturers such as American Racing, Kooks, SLP, Billy Boat, and Magnaflow. We have C7 Corvette exhausts in many styles and materials. You can order tri-Y header systems, competition axle-back exhausts with carbon fiber tips, long-tube headers, X-pipe racing header exhausts, cat-back exhaust systems, and much more.
The amount of gas that the exhaust can remove is dependent on two things. One is the internal diameter of the pipes in the exhaust system. These pipes are like a storm drain during heavy rain - if the amount to be removed exceeds the capacity of the drain, then water will back up. Replacing existing pipes with larger ones yields an immediate increase in performance.
The second method of improving exhaust is less intuitive. Gas flows in certain ways, and if it hits a solid object like the side of a pipe, it creates turbulence and slows the flow, sometimes enough to create back pressure. The twists and turns of a set of headers are prime territory for turbulence unless they are specifically engineered to prevent it. Putting in racing heads, particularly heads "tuned" for maximal performance at a particular rpm, can result in spectacular improvements.
