    Default Z06 Exhaust System

    Does anyone know if installing the Z06 Titanium Exhaust on a base 2003 Corvette (Auto Trans) will increase performace or HP? Just would like to know!

    From what I have read, the whole intake and exhaust system have to be upgraded as a whole to get any real increase in power. I have a Z06 and I like the sound of the system much better than the stock system I had on my '97 coupe. The sound might me a reason to change. Just my opinion.

    I have heard that the TI system does flow freer than the stock C5 system. Do know that freer flow will give you some increase in power but do not remember seeing any numbers as to just how much extra.

    I agree that it may have less back pressure, but from what I have seen here at the CAC and from what I have read, no gains of any real consequence can be made unless both the intake side and the exhaust side are both done, and that they should be done as a system, rather than isolated parts. I may be wrong (wouldn't be the first time), but that is my understanding. It seems to me that if there was any obvious 'low hanging fruit', Chevy would have snagged it themselves.

    You will never notice it. Sound is much better plus you save a few lbs. in the bargain. I have one on my car, stock system is in the basement.

    Default Z06 Exhaust

    I just replaced my Z06 exhaust with a new cat back from Bassani primarily for sound and a few extra ponies. The Z06 TI system will save you about 20-25 pounds, give you a few extra ponies (3-5HP) due to the flow properties, and a different sound. I guess it is up to you if the sound, small HP gain, and weight savings is worth it ? You can get a Z06 TI system on the net for about $400-$450. I just listed my Z06 TI exhaust for $400 + shipping.....
