Vendors are charging as much as $5,000 just for the short length of a C8 Catback exhaust, plus the costs of yanking out OEM to replace with the 3rd party system.Be sure the exhaust tips shape and diameter used have enough airspace/clearance to prevent heat from them damaging the fascia opening.
Before paying that high costs just to maybe having a different exhaust sound over what the stock Catback has, be aware many of these 3rd party systems have yanked out all the special thermal heat protection that prevented heat temps up to 800 degrees per head soaking everything in the engine bay and back to the rear fascia.
