San Diego based YouTuber TJ Hunt was one of the first people to fit aftermarket exhaust to his 2020 Corvette this week. In fact, he was so early to the party that his C8 had to be taken directly to MagnaFlow where a prototype exhaust system was finished up and fitted to his Ceramic Matrix Gray C8. In typical YouTube fashion, the process was spread out between two videos with a cliffhanger in the middle to maximize clicks.
The first video can be seen Here and starts off with TJ making amends for an earlier video where he claimed that he couldn’t take off the roof of his first Corvette alone. He then heads over to MagnaFlow Headquarters where video 1 starts to take off. There are some neat behind the scenes looks at what goes into the design and fabrication of a new vehicle’s aftermarket exhaust system, a tear-down of the entire rear end of TJ’s Stingray, and, the pièce de résistance, some no-exhaust revving action which starts at 15:41.
Teej returns the next day to pick up his reassembled C8 in video #2. This one begins with some new Supra nonsense before getting back to business at MagnaFlow’s HQ. There is a great section for engineering nerds where they cut into the stock C8 exhaust starting at 1:14. Our ears aren’t treated to the custom system’s roar until a ZR1-approved 7:55 but it is worth the wait. The LT2 sounds as good uncorked and the new black-tips look coming out of the Stingray’s back corners. From that point on, we get to hear the exhaust in all manner of situations; flybys, launches, in-car (where we get a look at all of the beautiful displays), and stand-stills. It is really awesome stuff and, as far as we know, MagnaFlow will have the first C8 exhaust available, they will sell a ton of them!
The series doesn’t end there either, this guy is putting out a lot of content! The next day he posted another video where he laid out plans to
ruin twin-turbo his ‘Vette, followed by a quest for even more clicks the next day when he posted another twelve-minute vid about his car being mistaken for a supercar. Stay tuned for the inevitable “five things that he hates about the car” piece! Seriously though, keep the content rolling, TJ, we can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next!
