Thinking of ordering corsa mufflers from west coast corvette ther on sale for 1375.00 . Duel rear exit quad 4'' pro searis tips does that sound like a good way to go. Not sure about headers I think kooks with there cross pipe and 3'' flow through cats if they will pass smog regs here in Calif? Thats for starts.I will worry about engin build a little later.Good idea or no?:lookinup:

thats the setup i want to do to my Z but I was thinking of maybe keeping the stock mufflers because I thought it would sound the same as the corsa vs stock muffler with open valves, but still thinking, but thats sounds awesome go for it:thumbsup:

...although I know Headers have been done to many C5/C6 Vettes, California has very strict laws regarding the alteration of your exhaust system with the exception of the rear catbacks.

Don't let anybody tell you differently.

It puzzles me how some of these cars with Headers get away with it.

Google CARB for more info!http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/onroad/cert/cert.php

Best of luck,

Les:thumbsup:

I left my factory mufflers on after Lingenfelter installed their 616hp cam package, for one week, then ordered the Corsa exhaust from Lingenfelter. The sound with factory mufflers is okay with a lot of drone, but the Corsa exhaust makes the Z sound like a Hot Rod with no drone.

I just orderd the LG Long tubes and X pipe and am staying with the stock cat Back. From what I understand you are only getting like 5-10 HP from the Cat Back. In my opinion there are much better places to spend the money.

I opted instead of the cat back for the Electric Water Pump and 160 stat.

I am also having a dyno tune done while these installs are being done. I am going for 520RWHP with these mods.

My car went 11.70 @ 119 last time at the track with only the K&N Cold air kit.
