A Corvette is the ultimate driving machine, but you can only operate these vehicles with a functioning exhaust system. With new models able to achieve speeds around 200 mph, you need a way to guide emissions safely from your engine in response to environmental regulations. No matter if you drive a C1 or a C7, Top Flight Automotive is your one-stop-shop for Corvette exhaust parts and performance systems.

As the largest manufacturer of Corvette parts and accessories, we have the components you require for enhancing your overall driving experience. From exhaust manifolds to tips and bezels, Top Flight Automotive has everything to keep classic and modern Corvettes on the road for generations to come.
Maintaining Corvette Exhaust Systems
Why replace exhaust parts under your vehicle? Simply put, a well-kept Corvette exhaust system is vital for fuel economy, environmental awareness, dampening loudness and your safety.
Your Corvette travels at high speeds, thanks to an internal combustion process. As your engine burns fuel, harmful "exhaust" gases such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide are created. If your exhaust system is in working condition, these emissions flow quickly from the combustion chamber and out your Corvette's tail pipes.
Correcting or replacing exhaust components is an excellent way to get the most out of your Corvette. When parts are attached properly, your vehicle's engine breathes better and gases have a direct path to escape. Shop our online store by Corvette make, model and year for compatible parts for your current setup.
Corvette Exhaust System Manifolds
One of the most important sections of an exhaust system is the manifold. No matter what Corvette model you own, you can guarantee an exhaust manifold is present under the hood. Across Chevrolet production runs and the automotive industry, exhaust manifolds bolt to the cylinder head to direct gas emissions away from passengers and nearby parts.
Top Flight Automotive caters to the C1, C2 and C3 Corvette generations with cast iron and stainless steel replacement manifolds. All of our reproduction parts meet or exceed the original specifications of the Chevrolet factory and attach to original combustion cylinders. If sections of your classic Corvette's exhaust system are starting to rust or deteriorate, chances are your manifolds may need some attention as well. Consider a manifold replacement from Top Flight Automotive across the following categories:
- 1956-1962 Corvette Exhaust Manifolds (C1)
- 1956-1974 Corvette Manifold Parts (C1-C3)
- 1963-1967 Corvette Exhaust Manifolds (C2)
- 1968-1980 Corvette Exhaust Manifolds (C3)
Corvette Performance Exhaust System Headers
Corvette exhaust headers are upgrades to manifold components under the hood. Engineered for performance capabilities, headers at Top Flight Automotive help reduce back pressure. Headers are made with larger stainless steel piping and collectors than a factory manifold, resulting in an eye-catching design when your hood is up at the car meet. Headers not only make your engine look better, but more importantly, run better. With their wide open design, a set of headers will awaken the tenor of your Corvette.
Headers on our online store are available for Corvette vehicles with production years 1957-1974 (C1-C3) and 1997-2002 (C5).
Corvette Exhaust Oxygen Sensors and Senders
As Corvette models thrive in the modern era, electric sensors and senders help regulate exhaust system stability. One of the primary sensors in your C4-C7 Corvette is responsible for checking the air to fuel ratio before emitting gases into the environment. The oxygen sensor (O2 sensor) helps catch emission failures and communicates how much unburned oxygen leaves your Corvette's engine.
Oxygen sensors control the fuel mixture. If your sensor wears away or stops working overtime, drivers may notice a check engine light or an increase in fuel consumption. Luckily, Top Flight Automotive supplies replacement oxygen sensors for a variety of engine configurations such as LT1 and LS1 setups.
Browse our online selection of oxygen sensors compatible with production years, including:
- 1984-1996 (C4 Generation)
- 1997-2004 (C5 Generation)
- 2005-2013 (C6 Generation)
Are you unsure if your oxygen sensor is working? Top Flight Automotive stocks a Corvette oxygen sensor test tool for 1984-1993 vehicles.
Corvette Catalytic Converter Replacements
Catalytic converters allow Corvette enthusiasts to travel at maximum speeds with environmental efforts in mind. Through internal engine combustion, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides are a threat to passengers and other drivers on the road. However, Top Flight Automotive offers a solution to unwanted emissions with our replacement catalytic converters for Corvette models with production years 1975-1990.
If your vintage Corvette can't pass emissions testing, shop our online store for catalytic converters specifically for the C3 and C4 generations. Top Flight Automotive aims to assist your Corvette restoration project with additional catalytic converter parts which include:
- Catalytic converter hangers
- Catalytic converter air tube kits
Corvette Exhaust System Mufflers
A muffler is located toward the back of your Corvette and serves as a component for reducing noise levels created by the engine. For desirable fuel efficiency and performance, it is best to replace a muffler if original parts develop rust, emit fumes that smell or are louder than usual. Top Flight Automotive keeps your exhaust system in pristine condition with replacement mufflers suitable for classic and modern Corvettes.
Top Flight Automotive replacement mufflers consist of stainless steel, aluminum and carbon materials for long-lasting restoration results. All of our mufflers are organized by Chevrolet production year to keep your shopping experience as smooth as possible. Whether you are seeking an original factory-fit for your C1, muffler hangers or eliminator pipes, no one guides customers through the restoration process quite like Top Flight Automotive.
