Are you sure it's not muffler condensate @ start-up? Not trying to insult you. Just asking a question, because it's clearly not normal.

Depending on weather conditions AND after the car sets a few hours. Moisture is sometimes forms in the mufflers. It your Vette's mufflers are still dripping fluid after the engine has reached temperature? Then I think certain that you need to return the car to the tuner for a look-see.

Good Luck

If it's excessive black carbon, no it's not normal and it should be tuned out. However, your car is fine - it's not going to hurt anything.

My exhaust tips will condensate all the time until they warm up but are dry after that. I have a V-3 as well but it shouldn't be blower type related at all.

I just had a V3 installed and mine doesn't do that. Sounds like you probably need to go back to the tuner and ask them to look at it.
