I know the recent focus of most Corvette coverage these days is geared now to the C8 Corvettes, but that doesn’t mean our love for the C7s has stopped. If anything, these Corvettes represent the pinnacle of front-engine/rear-wheel drive technology and their new lower price points as previously owned vehicles all but guarantees the 7th generation will be winning hearts and minds for years to come.
One of the fastest sectors to move in the aftermarket for the C8 Corvettes has been the development of various exhaust systems and straight-pipe set-ups, and invariably we are shown a video that allows us hear a before and after of the car. But why should the C8 guys be having all the fun?
As I was cruising through YouTube today, I found a C7 Corvette Z06 going full straight pipes by getting a “muffler delete” at a Florida muffler shop. The clip is only one minute long, but it effectively demonstrates the pure exhaust sound of the C7’s supercharged LT4 V8 that makes 650 horsepower.
So here’s a little something for you C7 Corvette fans out there!
