In addition to the recent cold-start video that was posted, we also wanted to share some behind-the-scenes action of the cat-back install on Christopher's C8 Corvette. With this being our first C8 in shop and on the lift, we were all a bit excited to have a glance at the new mid-engined machinery that Chevrolet has been teasing us with for the past few years.
With the C8 pulled into the shop and on the lift, Andrew got to work removing the rear bumper and OEM exhaust system. With the OEM exhaust system unbolted and out of the way, Andrew started piecing together the new 3” CNC mandrel-bent, U.S.-made .065” wall T304L stainless steel cat-back exhaust from the fine folks over at AWE Tuning. With this exhaust being designed, engineered, and manufactured in-house at AWE here in America, it's nice to see American parts being used on American vehicles.
Once the install work was completed, the C8 was brought back down to the ground, and the initial turn of the key handled, it was evident that this exhaust system was exactly what Christopher, and the entire shop, wanted. The mild growl of the factory exhaust was replaced with an instant roar of the AWE, leaving Christopher with grin from ear to ear!
