torchredfrc Those center caps really stand out on chrome. I'm not a fan of them on the painted wheel though.

They are stockers that a guy had chromed and sold the car before he mounted them. The center caps really finish the chrome wheel off right, it has a raised cadillac emblem in gold that I bought off eBay from cardio-doc. Heres the add. I think they're a must for chrome stock wheels.

The '05 color is called Redline, I haven't seen the two side by side but they are real close. Both look great.

LunarX I hear a lot of hype about the Kooks headers.

Anybody here tried those?

The Borla/Corsa/et all exhausts should all be direct bolt on but I don't know if I could say with any confidence that you would gain any hp with a cat back system. If, however, you went with a long tube header setup you would get some added hp. I havn't seen any headers yet for the V though.

If you're in Dallas, swing by LG Motorsports and see if they have any cat back experience with the V. LG makes an excellent long tube header setup for the C5/C6 Corvette.
Don't give up hope

Thanks for the info, I'll look them up.

Being new to this car and all is the Borla a direct bolt-on? What kinda of power increases can I expect versus the Corsa cat-back?

BTW, this forum kills that other one Only thing lacking is the traffic, but I'm here to stay WOOT!!!

BigJoeD I'll post a picture tomorrow.

I'm considering lowering springs, but prefer coil-overs. Also a CAI, Exhaust, a wing and wheels in no specific order.

Which exhaust is most preferred by members?
