2020 - 2023 Chevy Corvette C8
This item will not fit vehicles equipped Z51 Performance Package or the factory performance exhaust upgrade that include NPP dual-mode exhaust valve
The Nuclear Propulsion Package (NPP) option is a vacuum controlled valve on the factory exhaust which is controlled by the ECU. It will open and close based on RPM and throttle position.
The valves will be open for the first two seconds that the car is started. It requires time for the vacuum pressure to build to close the valves. After that The operation of the NPP is normally closed, open on demand. Have someone stand behind the car and bring up the RPM to 3,500 and you should see the valves open. The butterfly operation is tied to the throttle position sensor and the RPM. It uses the throttle position to determine driver intent. Under normal operation the valves work as follows:
Below 30% throttle and 3,500 rpm the valves are closed.
Above 30% throttle and 3,500 rpm the valves will open.
Between 30% throttle and 80% throttle and above 3,500 rpm the valves are open.
Above 80% throttle and above 2,800 rpm the valves are open.
Dual Mode Exhaust is a feature that allows your Camaro to stay within 'driveby noise' compliance. At 3500 RPM the valves auto bypass the factory mufflers to form a temporary straight back system which allows increased airflow at higher speeds.
3" - 2-1/2" 304 Stainless Steel Construction:
This cat-back exhaust system is constructed of 3" - 2-1/2" mandrel-bent brushed finished 304 stainless steel tubing for maximum strength and durability.
Quad 4-1/2" Diameter Carbon Fiber Exhaust Tips:
Finishing off this exhaust system are quad 4-1/2" diameter carbon fiber stainless steel clamp-on exhaust tips. The tips feature an aFe POWER logo for a unique style.
This system produces an aggressive sound unleashing all available horsepower and torque.
Utilizing factory style flanges and hangers this system is a direct bolt-on system, which requires no cutting or modifications for a hassle-free installation.
Interlock Flex Pipe:
This cat-back exhaust system uses a heavy duty flex pipe with an internal interlock liner for added strength and durability.
Integrated Mitered Merge X-Pipe:
A mitered merge x-pipe is used to balance and evenly distribute exhaust pulses traveling through the exhaust system, minimizing exhaust drone and maximizing scavenging.
This axle-back exhaust system incorporates factory style AFM (active fuel management) exhaust valves which use the factory exhaust valve motors (not included). The AFM valves helps to control exhaust pulses during cylinder deactivation.
Utilizing state-of-the-art computer-aided design technology, this exhaust system is designed for custom, high tolerance factory fitment.
