The aftermarket exhaust business is a big one, and many companies put painstaking man-hours into crafting a unique tone and ensuring respectable performance gains from their system. One of those major players is Corsa Performance, and they’ve rolled out their newest system for the C7 Corvette Stingray.
The video provides a hands-on look at the effort gone into making such a system worthy for the almighty C7 Corvette. Corsa spent countless hours designing and tuning to make sure the perfect rumble was emitted from the tailpipes.
Corsa is particularly proud of its Double Helixx X-pipe design, which was thought up as an alternative to the valved axle-pipe design of the stock Corvette. Rather than Corsa creating a costly design to mimic the factory piping, the Double Helixx X-Pipe simplifies the system, and unlocks additional horsepower through optimized placement of the twin crossovers.
When the C7 Corvette Corsa exhaust system is equipped with the X-pipe, dyno testing shows an increase of 20-horsepower and 15 pound-feet of torque. Those are substantial numbers from an exhaust system alone, and the Corsa system in conjunction with other bolt-on modifications can make the difference in quarter mile times.
Looking past all of the technical speak, let’s not disregard how down right sinister the Corvette sounds with this system. Not to mention Corsa’s signature RSC technology to keep things nice and quiet when cruising around town. The company has also added a clamp-on tip design to allow owners to customize their Corvette’s exhaust tips to their preference, something not found on many other systems.
Check out the video provided down below for the behind the scenes look at the engineering of this system, and if we had a shiny new C7 ‘Vette sitting in our garages, Corsa would be first on our list.
