2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray Exhaust Sound! [Video]
We’ve already done in-depth coverage of the car directly from the floor of the Cobo center, but one crucial element was still missing. The all-important exhaust sound coming from that quad-pipe system.
Preliminary specs suggest the 6.2-liter small block engine produces 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. You could get that from a turbocharged 3-liter these days, but the car wouldn’t sound as honest. Hearing those short seconds of V8 grumble, we’re glad Chevrolet didn’t go the turbo route.
The engine itself is a cast aluminum block with two overhead valves per cylinder and direct injection technology.
he 2014 C7 Corvette is available with a dual-mode active that exhaust system offers a 27-percent improvement in airflow. It features two additional valves that open to a lower-restriction path through the mufflers. When open, these valves increase engine performance and produce a more powerful exhaust note.
