January 2nd, 2011 · No Comments

This Borla Performance Rear Section Exhaust System (Part number 11747) has been designed for 2005-2008 Chevrolet Corvette C6 equipped with a 5.7L V-8 engine and automatic or manual transmissions.
Note: Before removing the original exhaust system from your vehicle, please compare the parts you have received with the bill of materials provided on the previous page to assure that you have all the parts necessary for the installation of your new Borla Performance Rear Section Exhaust System.
Original Exhaust System Removal
Note: With a used vehicle, we suggest a penetrating spray lubricant to be applied liberally to all exhaust fasteners and allowing a significant period of time for the chemical to lubricate the threads before attempting to disassemble.
Loosen the clamps shown in figure 1 located just under the transmission at the rear of the vehicle.
Using a 13mm socket, unbolt the spring hangers located just in front of the clamps as shown in figure 2. Place the bolts aside for use during the installation of your new exhaust system.
With a muffler stand or an additional person to hold the h-pipe assembly up into position, using a 15mm socket, unbolt the flanges shown in figure 3 located just behind the catalytic converters. Place the hardware and gaskets to the side for use during the installation of your new exhaust system.
Remove the h-pipe assembly from the vehicle by dropping the front down as shown in figure 4, than sliding the rear portion out of the factory over axle pipe/ muffler assemblies .
Using a spray type lubricant, lubricate the hangers shown in figure 5 at the rear of the vehicle just above the tip assemblies.
Beginning with the driver’s side of the vehicle, remove the hangers from the rubber isolators and remove the muffler assembly from the vehicle.
On vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions, remove the passenger’s side heat shield from the fuel tank. Using a set of pliers or something similar, bend the tab down.
