Check out this Video from Atlanta Custom Wraps WrapLife YouTube channel where they show the FIRST Corsa Exhaust built for the New Mid Engine C8 Corvette.
They really did this C8 right with the Camo Wrap, BG Forged wheels, and Corsa Cat Back Exhaust.
They have a C7 Corvette that is pretty much identical as well so be sure to check out their website and Instagram for more pictures, videos, and information on their services and tell them C8CorvetteBlog.com sent you!

TR3 Performance: C8 Corvette Stock Exhaust VS Fabspeed Catback + Sport Cats
Now The 2020 C8 Corvette Sounds As Good As it Looks | Straight Pipes on the LT2 V8
Alright, so the all new C8 Corvette is a great sports car. But let’s get one thing straight, the stock exhaust needs some help. And that’s exactly where Fabspeed Motorsports comes in. They installed a nice set of straight pipes on this mid engine Corvette so let’s see how it sounds.
Cordes Performance Racing in Tempe, AZ has built a Custom C8 Cat Back exhaust for the new C8 Corvette.
Check out their video that shows how they built the C8 Corvette Exhaust that they will be offering shortly and how it compares to the C7 Corvette.
Per Cordes Performance Racing YouTube video:
We wrapped up our C8 Cat-back that we will be offering shortly on our site. These are available for immediate install at our facility and will be a little bit until we are ready to ship outside of the shop. LIke all of our products we make these 100% in house!
Here are multiple YouTube Videos of the Kooks Headers for the C8 Corvette that compare how the C8 performs with changing out the stock headers and adding Kooks Headers as well as Kooks Green Cats.
Also, if you are installing Kooks Headers yourself on your Corvette C8 you need a O2 Sensor Socket Wrench as well.
We will keep this post updated with any new C8 Corvette Kooks Headers videos as well. If you want to add anything to this post let us know in our Sponsors Page contact form or shoot us a message on Instagram or Twitter.
Per Complete Street Performance C8 Corvette Kooks Headers
In this video we install a set of Kooks 1-7/8″ headers on the C8 Corvette with the factory cats. Then we put it on the dyno to realize the gains, only for the big surprise to be that we went the opposite way. We think we identified the reason why and hope Kooks will address the issue. If they do, there will be a follow up video! The Complete Street Performance YouTube Channel is dedicated to bringing you humorous but quality car content, mostly specializing in late model Domestic V8s. The work we do is with roughly a century of experience between everyone working at CSP, and the best part is we have fun doing this specialized work.
Per Emelia Hartford Kooks Headers C8 Video
Today’s episode is a fun one to say the least! Happy to announce we have partnered up with Kooks Headers and Exhaust to install a beautiful set of their new 1 7/8 304 Stainless Headers and Ultra Green High Flow Cats! Of course before installing the cats we had to see how she sounded with open headers! For the record these headers are not off a NASCAR but Kooks does make NASCAR headers and they sure sound like they are!

Unleash a more aggressive roar from your C8 Corvette with the SOUL non-valved 3″ performance rear exhaust while reducing heat soak with a high grade heat blanket solution.
+ All Soul Performance Products exhaust components are backed by our Lifetime Warranty for both street and track use + Weighs approximately 20 lbs less than factory valved rear exhaust + Built in valve motor brackets safely support the factory valve motors to prevent damage or check engine lights + Designed and built in-house at our Willow Grove, PA facility
DEVELOPMENT: The factory valved exhaust is rather free flowing with valves open, and we wanted to craft an aggressive non-valved solution while mitigating drone through a longer exhaust tract. Our split bank 3″ crossover design offers maximum flow and V8 rumble while shedding approximately 20 lbs. We’ve incorporated mounting brackets for the factory exhaust valves (designed to limit flow in four-cylinder mode) to prevent them from being damaged or throwing a check engine light due to removal.
Due to the close proximity of the exhaust to sensitive components and plastic, heat shields are a MUST. We’ve heard rumors of GM discussing potential issues related to heat from modifying the exhausts with dealers and have taken every precaution to implement heat shielding into every solution. We’ve partnered with PTP Turbo Blankets to produce a bespoke, form-fitting heat shielding solution. Far superior to no-name brand copies, PTP Lava Turbo Blankets are constructed with an outer layer made from pulverized volcanic lava rock (Rated 1800°F Direct Heat / 2500°F Radiant Heat) formed into fabric and woven into a tight mesh weave. These blankets are internally insulated with high temperature calcium magnesium silicate wool (Rated 1832°F Continuous / 2300°F Peak) overlaid with a high temperature stainless steel mesh for increased durability and improved thermal resistance. The Lava Blankets are designed to withstand the harshest of conditions.
CONSTRUCTION: Each component is made in-house by our fabrication team from mandrel bent .060″ wall T304L stainless steel tubing, laser cut brackets, and waterjet cut flanges. Welds are back purged for proper penetration and maximum durability. Our 4″ double wall stainless steel tips are available in a number of finishes and have depth adjustment for perfect fitment to meet your desired aesthetic.
BOLT ON AND GO: Each exhaust component is built and tested in a thick gauge aluminum fixture (which prevents warping) to ensure perfect fitment. Every piece is rigorously quality-checked prior to shipping and then foam packed to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.
ABOUT PTP TURBO BLANKETS: Every PTP Turbo Blanket is hand-crafted in North America and quality is guaranteed. PTP Turbo Blankets are well known in the industry for their high standards for material selection, design, construction, and also for their ability to provide these high quality products at an affordable price. It is important to note that, as unfortunate as it is, there are many imitation turbo blankets out there – often made in China. These imitation turbo blankets are manufactured using much inferior materials for construction. Imitation turbo blankets can be ineffective or worse, they can be dangerous if flammable materials are used. PTP Turbo Blankets and wraps are the result of years of product research and development. The exact same materials that are used in their turbo blankets and wraps are currently being used in multiple military applications. Their materials are on the cutting edge of heat insulation technology – for more information see this full research paper here.
LIFETIME WARRANTY: Enjoy your SOUL exhaust components with confidence on both the street and track as they are covered for life! Our team will quickly work with you to resolve any issues or answer any questions that you may have. We cover our HJS catalytic converters with an unprecedented 3 year warranty while the components themselves are backed by our Lifetime Warranty.
Upgrade from the restrictive factory catalysts to Soul Performance Products Sport Catalytic Converters, built around premium HJS HD 200 cell catalysts which offer significant increases in power and sound with no compromises or check engine lights. Enjoy a respectable gain in V8 rumble, throttle response, and power for your C8 Corvette.
+ All Soul Performance Products exhaust components are backed by a renowned Lifetime Warranty for both street and track use + Added performance with NO check engine light + Peak power gains of 17 whp and 20 ft-lbs of torque (as tested with factory valved exhaust) + Weighs 9.6 lbs / 4.3 kg less than factory exhaust components (16 lbs vs 25.6 lb) + Designed and built in-house at our Willow Grove, PA facility
CONSTRUCTION: Each set is assembled in house in the USA out of mandrel bent, thick wall .065″” T304L stainless steel. Back purged TIG welding ensures proper weld penetration and longevity. We fabricate these cats using thick gauge aluminum fixtures which act as a great heat sink during the welding process and prevent warping not only of our products, but the fixtures themselves to ensure perfect fitment. Due to the close proximity of the catalytic converters to sensitive components, heat shields are a MUST with the C8! We’ve partnered with PTP Turbo Blankets to produce a bespoke, form-fitting heat shielding solution. Far superior to no-name brand copies, PTP Lava Turbo Blankets are constructed with an outer layer made from pulverized volcanic lava rock (Rated 1800°F Direct Heat / 2500°F Radiant Heat) formed into fabric and woven into a tight mesh weave.

UPDATE! Soul Performance Full Cat Back Exhaust and Sports Cats for the C8 Corvette
Here is another Performance Shop Team Nur installing the new Soul Performance full C8 Exhaust.
With the Soul Performance Sport Cats for the C8 it improved the horsepower from 450 baseline to 471 with the stock exhaust still on. C8 picked up 20 wheel horsepower and 20+ more torque.
With the Soul Performance Sport Cats and the Soul Performance Cat back straight pipe it sounds insane and without tuning it gained about 5 more horsepower and torque as well. Overall it’s a win and sounds insane!
