Default What exhaust tip is this?

I was at Circuit of the Americas this past weekend and say this exhaust tip set up on a Corvette in the Corral. Any idea what brand it is?

How did it hold up? Must be some darn good epoxy they're using.

Also, holy crap at that price. Jesus. Wonder why they don't make stainless one. Seems like it would be a big seller.

I actually like it. I went with the Black Polygon exhaust on the Corsa. Those round exhaust to me are just boring.

I like the Katech exhaust as well. There are a few different styles out there - and I agree with you, the four rounds can be improved on, especially given the overall styling of the 7.


I've these on mine:

IMO, it's the biggest disappointment of the exterior styling

Agreed. The tips on the C7 are OK at best, at least they're better than the tiny ones on the C6. Which ones are you running?

It's a Callaway. But I think you can buy their exhaust as a separate item - you don't have to buy their full mod package to get it.

I love the exhaust. Deeper, richer tone than stock. A little louder than stock - and absolutely zero drone.

Sounds fantastic and looks great. Sooooo much better than the stock system. They use a Lamborghini-style rear muffler set-up - very nicely done.

Yep Baylor Katech. I love that thing but $$$. The poly corsa are ok. I just picked them up in black. I wish they would mimic the Borla. Just off tips I would go borla but sound I had to go with what corsa offered ��
