I upgraded from a C5 Corvette convertible to a new C6 convertible, and
find the improvements to be mostly positive, but with one major
The exhaust sound of my prior convertible had a wonderful mellow, gutsy
sound, very much like what you would expect from a sports car.
The newer C6 is way less audible, and has no rumble or other noticeable
sonic qualities. It actually sounds very much like most of the sedans
on the road.
I am not looking for a loud, obnoxious, "look at me" type of noise
generator, but I really do miss the mellow and full bodied sound
quality of the older C5 factory exhaust.
What if any options do I have? Is a 3rd party exhaust / muffler a huge
mistake? Is it very pricey? And am I just asking for trouble with
emissions, reliability, etc?
I am unlikely to make any drastic or expensive changes, but I am just
curious to know what might be possible.
Thanks in advance to any / all responders.
