Earlier immediately, we saw Lingenfelter Performance Architectural demonstrate requirements of its new Extreme-S exhaust package for the C8 Corvette with a short one-minute teaser video clip. Now, the tuning company is definitely giving us a better idea of just how this aftermarket exhaust kit seems with a video showing it for on a dyno.
The Lingenfelter Extreme-S exhaust kit was jointly created with the exhaust experts over at Corsa Performance and consists of lightweight stainless-steel tubes and 4. 5-inch circular tips with engraved Lingenfelter trademarks. In the video, an otherwise share C8 Corvette with the Extreme S i9000 exhaust produces a healthy 452 hp and 433 pound-feet of torque on the wheels on the dyno. This symbolizes increases of 19 horsepower plus 15 pound-feet of torque at the tires – a fairly significant amount to have an exhaust system.
This exhaust is also lighter in weight than the stock kit, but Lingenfelter has not said what kind of weight cost savings customers can expect. The exhaust can also be 50-state legal and comes with a life time original owner’s warranty.
Tuners like Lingenfelter are currently restricted in how they can modify the C8 Corvette due to the vehicle’s encrypted factory ECU . The company does still offer several upgrades for that mid-engine sports car as well as the Extreme-S exhaust, however , including Corsa headers, lightweight wheels and carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer Performance Design intake manifold.
The Lingenfelter Extreme-S exhaust is available to purchase to the company’s website for $3, 599 USD. That’s a lot of money for an exhaust, but then again, this is one of the few available improvements C8 Corvette owners can presently make to their vehicles that will in fact increase power. Lingenfelter says the particular exhaust has been specially tuned to make sure it won’t produce any motor codes or warning lights right after installation.
