Corvette Tips

I measured the openings in the Ground Effects package and its 7 inches wide while these Tips are 6.38 inches wide... The main thing you have to make sure about is getting a 2.5 inlet so the tips fit over the factory exhaust (or in my case the Magnaflow Competition)

Hopefully they'll fit... I have my fingers crossed

Will do the install next weekend.

Great thread and super car...SUBSCRIBED! I can't wait to see how your exhaust turns out. Hope you can post a youtube video with sound clip too! I bet it will sound awesome.

Thank you

I have my car parked in the garage now because we're redoing the road and I don't want to park the car in mud and dirt, Hopefully if weather permits I can take it out Friday and get the install done this weekend

I'll make a Youtube Video once it's done

Corvette Tips Update

So the Corvette Quad Exhaust Tips had to be Welded on as seen below:


Chris and Tommy at Sterling Chevrolet in VA are some of the best service advisors I have ever met! They did a great job with the car and had the side tips shortened a little so that they would better fit the ground effects.



They stick out less then half an inch:


And The Final Result:

Car looks good! I'm going for the black and red theme. The orange with black goes well.

So haven't put up a Exhaust Video yet cause I'm not too happy with the sound...

However, Just bought a Magnaflow X-Pipe and having it put on instead of the existing resonators Cars at the dealer now will get her back tomorrow
