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.

Also, you might not read this on their marketing front page but might find hidden somewhere else on their website :

Assure the 3rd party Catback is NOT dumping that high heat onto the case of the DCT as that will degrade and cause failures

At this time look at what GM is charging just for a replacement DCT, the core price, the labor costs and the loss of GM warranty

Not many spare DCTs around so your C8 can be sitting for some time till one is found
