In your original thread on this there was some discussion about maybe redoing the exhaust. Did you opt not to do that mod?

Congrats, OP.

You're going to love it. I'm having a blast with mine.

Looks great/OEM and comes with a 3/36 warranty, nice.

I assume that's crank HP and not RWHP? Did it get dynoed?

Too bad GM doesn't ship a car like this from the factory.

You have drag radials?

Callaway axle back exhaust was backordered and not available when the car was there.

Going with Corsa X-pipe and Corsa sport exhaust system.

^^^Yes that is crank HP.

No I did not dyno the car before and Callaway does not dyno the car afterwards.

^^^^Having a bit more tire on the ground than the Stingray helps a bit.

I know there are many people who question the cost vs. benefit of the Callaway SC757 package. Those that are skeptical and feel that there are better modifications with higher gains and cheaper cost I recognize you so there is no need to debate that or post these issues in this thread.

cheers!
Beautiful!

Two beautiful, but totally different beasts.
I have to ask, which one is more fun to drive? If you don't mind, can you briefly elaborate?
At your convenience.

Yes, the folks at Callaway do a great job, and best of all you still maintain your full GM warranty coverage.

Enjoy the new ride!

I am really considering this. When I get a chance and can fully explore some roll bar options and can get my car to a track, this would become an easier decision.

Congrats, I love the cut away in the hood.

Default Calavette

Corvette Callavette
Yes the guys at Callaway did a fantastic jop on my C7 Callavette. . Except for a Clattering fuel pump, which they changed, it ran great no problems no overheating just gobs and gobs of power. MotorWeek did a review of the 757. It had the optional Z07 Performance Package. O to 60 2.8 Sec. and they said that the tires were fighting for traction all the way through the quarter-mile.
