One of the greatest things about America’s Sports Car is the nearly limitless aftermarket support that it enjoys. Manufacturers looking to cash in on mod-hungry early adaptors of the hottest car in recent memory have had an uphill battle to get their new equipment into customer’s hands. The switch to a mid-engine layout, an extremely limited number of available C8s to experiment on, and workplace distancing restrictions are just a few of the unique hurdles facing the best and brightest minds in the highly competitive vehicular supplementation sector.
Kooks Headers and Exhaust of Statesville, North Carolina has overcome all of the current adversity in delivering a working prototype of their all-new LT2-specific headers which allow the new Stingray to play a face-melting quartet of thunder through the factory cat-back exhaust.
The headers also returned dyno-proven increases of 20 horsepower (bringing the car well into the 500s!) and 26 lb-ft of torque at the tires without any additional tuning. The cherry on top? The install didn’t throw a single check engine light.

Kooks is currently taking pre-orders for the stainless steel system on their site. The headers themselves will retail for $1,495.99 but an early bird special has that price down to $1,346.39 for a limited time. Their 3” catted OEM connections will put buyers back an additional $1,614.99 ($1,453.49 on sale).
Need further convincing? Crank up the volume like you are listening to Autograph and check out video proof of the headers’ awesomeness.
