The Team at Redline Speed Worx (RSW) just recently had the opportunity to take an already built monster C7 Z06 to the next level of Performance with help from our valued Performance Partners at Akrapovic.
Our Facility is conveniently located in Central New Jersey (Green Brook, 08812) as a half way point between New York City and Philadelphia. Within our 11,000 sq. ft. building we specialize in Mechanical Service, Repair, Diagnostics, and Performance Upgrades for Specialty vehicles. We are strategic Performance Partners for prestigious brands such as HRE Performance Wheels, Akrapovic Exhaust Systems, and Brembo Brake Systems.
What was the starting point you ask? Well a brand new Hennessey built C7 Z06 Corvette.
When it comes to a vehicle of this nature, that is already living at peak levels of performance, the only opportunities where upgrades can occur are in places where you can strategically remove weight. Our Team found it to be a natural progression to remove the factory steel exhaust system and replace it with a component built solely upon Titanium and Carbon Fiber.
Redline Speed Worx is New Jersey’s Authorized Direct Installation Center for the entire Akrapovic Automotive Product Range. If you are interested in upgrading your C6 or C7 Z06 Corvette with the best exhaust system available from the aftermarket please do not hesitate to Contact our Performance Specialists.
The Akrapovič Slip-On Line system is the first step in exhaust tuning. Crafted from high-grade titanium, which considerably reduces the weight in comparison to the stock system, it has been perfectly designed to fit directly onto the existing link pipes.
The system increases power, provides better throttle response, and improves torque, and also conjures up an amazing sound from the Supercharged V8 engine.
The Slip-On Line system has four valves, designed for the first pair to operate in four-cylinder mode and the second set to come into action according to the driver’s specifications. The system is developed to be compatible with the car’s drive mode selector, and Akrapovič engineers have developed an electronic device to drive the exhaust valves for each mode—Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport, and Track.
Giving the driver an even greater opportunity to enjoy the sound of the Akrapovič Slip-On Line across the whole spectrum of the car’s performance.
It’s topped off by four large-diameter carbon fibre tailpipes with titanium inners, to make the Slip-On clearly recognizable as an exhaust that means business.
The Akrapovic Titanium Exhaust System offers a 28.3% Reduction in overall weight when compared to the factory system.
C7 Sting Ray and Z06 Corvette equipped with Akrapovič exhaust systems benefit from additional performance and increased responsiveness. Significant gains in power and torque are achieved throughout the entire rpm range.
If the Akrapovič Slip-On system replaces the GM NPP exhaust system, the Slip-On Line maintains the valve regulation of the NPP system.
If the Corvette C7 Z06 is not equipped with a GM Performance exhaust (NPP exhaust), then the Control Kit (P-HF886) and Valve Actuator Kit (P-HF868) are mandatory. For Corvette C7s with a Performance exhaust (NPP exhaust), neither the Control Kit (P-HF886) nor the Valve Actuator Kit (P-HF868) is needed.
