What are y'all choices of C7 Corvette exhaust systems? Thinking of straight pipess

So lets hear it, since I'm sure more than everyone is leaving the exhaust as a option that they would improve. MY options are either going with a Borla Full Cat-Back, or going to cut the whole thing out and go straight pipes and re weld the Stock tips exactly how they were originally. What are y'all thoughts?

First and foremost... I want to be mesmerized by muscular tunes from that stock quad exhaust setup... and if possible, the NPP option.

It'll be :music: to my :ear:

Whichever sounds best, but always leaned towards Bassani, Borla, Corsa, although the Stainless Works is awesome on the Camaro.

Although with AFM I may just leave the upgraded performance from GM on since it has exhaust flaps to counter the drone.

Do any of y'all think when the car shuts off half the cylinders while cruising, that there you be a sound problem when running straight pipes?

Nice, I like seeing talk of modding already

I've always been a fan of Borla and Corsa. But the factory exhaust already sounds pretty good!

Definitely want NPP. My C6 has it and I love it.
And it's even better with the Mild2Wild remote control.

As far as cat-back exhaust goes, stock is sufficient.
Aftermarket systems just change the noise, they're not worth much power, if any.
But headers are definitely worth it, so long tubes would be in the plans for sure.

You so read my mind about the Long Tube headers, that's why I originally wanted to go straight pipes, but most likely I'll do Headers to stock cat back and see what that brings and then consider a cat-back. And your right about it not being about the power gain over noise, cause thats truly what I'm really going for is the noise factor.
