1997-2004 Chevrolet Corvette Base Cat-Back Exhaust System Part # 12649
BORLA® Corvette C5 and C5 Z06 Straight Pipe exhaust system eliminates the mufflers and features polished T-304 stainless steel tips. Not for the faint of heart, a very aggressive exhaust note!! BORLA® Performance Industries has once again proven why we‘ve have led the aftermarket performance exhaust industry for over 40 years. BORLA® has an exalted heritage with Chevrolet performance vehicles. From the C5R LeMans winning Corvettes to privateers like KTEC, Pratt-Miller, Lingenfelter and Lou Gigliotti who have enhanced BORLA®‘s knowledge of both the vehicle dynamics and the power-plant engineering. The C5 is a muscle car with a big powerful engine on a sophisticated chassis. BORLA® has always used the transfer of technology from racing to the street as a tool, and the C5, and C5 Z06 play right into that wheelhouse. With an experienced R&D staff, the BORLA® team has given the C5 the attention it deserves by rolling out several systems for the Corvette. Airflow management and exhaust engineering is a science with which BORLA® has more experience than anyone in the exhaust aftermarket.
BORLA® offers a variety of options for the C5, and C5 Z06. Choose from several tip styles and muffler designs. Cat-Back™ and Axle-Back systems are available with either the highly popular “S-Type” muffler or the “Touring” muffler. The “S-Type” provides a more aggressive sound. For those who prefer it on the milder side, we have the “Touring” muffler with a less aggressive sound. Some come with an assortment of tip designs.
BORLA® Performance Industries, the original pioneers of premium, high quality T-304 austenitic stainless steel (superior to 409 or aluminized steel) free-flow exhaust utilizes patented award and race winning technology to deliver quality, sound, performance gains and enhanced fuel economy — all with an easy bolt-on installation.
