B&B 2.5" X-Pipe Chevrolet Corvette C5 97-04
Each Billy Boat Performance Exhaust system incorporates 3 generations of fabrication skill and racing talent. Every system starts with T-304 stainless steel, known throughout the industry as the highest quality material practical for after-cat exhaust applications. All exhaust tubing is mandrel bent on sophisticated CNC machinery for a precise fit and uninterrupted exhaust flow. The use of T-304 stainless steel flanges also offers high strength and complete resistance to harsh elements. All hangers, resonators, and tips are T-304 stainless steel as well. Billy Boat Performance Exhaust mufflers are crafted in-house with years of racing and street development invested into the design. Each muffler is tuned to match its application for the best possible performance gain and sound quality combination. For strength, the muffler end-plates are radiused at the inlet and outlet preventing premature cracking. Additionally, reinforcing gussets are used when necessary. Depending on the application, you can choose from 3 inch round tips with a rolled edge, 4.5 inch oval rolled edge tips, 5.25 inch oval rolled edge tips or DTM style tips for European applications.
An exhaust system is only as efficient as its most restrictive unit, an in many cases the factory x-pipe is the bottleneck of an exhaust system. The x-pipe section evens the exhaust pulses with a synchronized crossover in the center section, resulting in a deeper, smoother tone. Replacing the factory x-pipe with the B&B unit will greatly increase exhaust flow as well as provide a deeper tone. The factory x-pipe is designed for ease of manufacture, noise reduction, and cost reduction. These intentions obviously clash with the intentions of a car enthusiast. The improved sound, torque, horsepower, and throttle response of a B&B midpipe makes it a crucial piece in the modification of any vehicle from a daily driver to a full race car.
