Engineers are forced to walk a tightrope when designing exhaust systems. Cars like the Camaro ZL1 and the Corvette ZR1 are not allowed to be sold in many foreign markets because they are too loud. They weren’t meant for export anyway so we can enjoy the roar. However, the new C8 Corvette for sale was built as a global car. Therefore it has to be quiet to please everyone. Being a true-dual system from the factory, massive mufflers are needed to quell the beast. That is why John Hennessey and his team developed the first system with a crossover. Turn up the volume and listen to the Hennessey Performance C8 Corvette exhaust scream on the dyno.
PRO TIP: Exhaust crossovers make more low-end power than isolated “true dual” pipes. The opposing pulses also cancel each other out, so the car will gain horsepower, torque, and a great personality. Hennessey Performance spent hundreds of hours crafting this mirror-imaged system to have an optimal length. Not only is it appealing to the eyes, but it is also a truly tuned system, a lost art in the aftermarket. Your Corvette will lose 10 lbs while gaining 21 horsepower and 19 lb-ft of torque. Pricing is set at $3,495 plus shipping and the company is offering a special price of $2,995 for the first 100 orders.
