Product Details

Chevy C4 Corvette ZR1 Cat Back Exhaust System (Oval Tips) #FCOR-0010

Tried and proven this Billy Boat Exhaust cat back exhaust for the C4 Corvette ZR-1 has been the industry leader for over a decade. With unparalleled performance sound and style this system was developed with the true enthusiast in mind.

Designed in our in-house chassis dyno this precision crafted system just says performance. 3 inch CNC mandrel bent tubing is used throughout the entire system provides a smooth balanced unrestricted exhaust flow providing increases of as much as 25 horsepower and 35 foot pounds of torque. These results have been confirmed by the chassis dyno and by our customers.

With a combination of sound absorption and cancellation, this complex yet simple design emits a deep robust bark on hard acceleration aggressive driving with a mild tone at cruise. Hand fabricated using 100 percent T-304 stainless steel this exhaust system is manufactured as a direct bolt-on replacement for the factory system and by utilizing the factory mounting locations this system requires absolutely no cutting welding or modifications for installation and includes all mounting hardware. A pair of 4.5 inch oval tips on each side gives your Corvette a bold and individual look. With unparalleled quality and attention to detail, this 50 state emissions legal system is backed by our limited LIFETIME warranty.

  • 4 1/2″ Quad Rolled OVAL Tips.
  • Mandrel bent from the highest-grade T-304 stainless steel.
  • Designed, tested, and manufactured to the finest hand-made integrity found in any exhaust system.
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

How a Dyno Works

We’re going to quote DynoJet directly to explain how the machine works, since paraphrasing would only do you an injustice. “Power, in mechanical terms, is the ability to accomplish a specified amount of work in a given amount of time. By definition, one horsepower is equal to applying a 550-pound force through a distance of one foot in one second. In everyday terms, it would take one HP to raise a 550-pound weight up one foot in one second. So to measure horsepower, we need to know force (in pounds) and velocity (in feet per second). DynoJet’s inertia dynamometer measures power just in this way. The dyno calculates velocity by measuring the time it takes to rotate the heavy steel drum one turn. The dyno measures force at the surface of the drum by indirectly measuring the drum’s acceleration. Acceleration is simply the difference in velocity at the surface of the drum from one revolution to the next. The force applied to the drum is calculated from acceleration using Newton’s 2nd law, F=MA, (F)orce equals (M)ass times (A)cceleration. Power is coupled to the drum by friction developed between the driving tire of the vehicle and the knurled steel surface on the drum of the dynamometer.”

Calculating Torque

“When an object rotates around a point, the object’s speed of rotation depends on both an applied force and the moment arm. The moment arm is the distance from the point of rotation to where the force is being applied. Torque is the product of the force and the moment arm. For example, think about trying to spin a drum by wrapping a rope around the drum and then pulling on the rope. If the rope is wrapped around a drum of one-foot radius and pulled with 550 pounds of force, the resulting torque is 550 foot-pounds. The torque on the dyno’s drum can be calculated by multiplying the force applied by the drum’s radius. However, engine torque is not equal to the dyno’s drum torque because the gearing through the drivetrain changes the moment arm. The change in the moment arm is proportional to the ratio of engine speed to drum speed. Therefore, tachometer readings are necessary to calculate and display engine torque.”

With proper installation, your new Billy Boat Exhaust system will last a lifetime. While installation of this product is very simple and straight forward, there are a couple areas that need some attention.

  1. It helps to do this installation on a lift if you want to get the factory mufflers out in one piece.
  2. Unbolt the flange and loosen the clamp that holds the front of the system.
  3. Remove the factory nuts from the rear of the mufflers and set aside. Loosen the brackets that hold the rear of the mufflers and let hang in place. Remove the bolts that hold the center section of the system. Save the bolts as they will be reused. (NOTE: If the vehicle is a convertible, the center x-frame will have to be removed to remove and install the exhaust system).
  4. Remove the existing system.
  5. To install the Billy Boat Exhaust system, align the driver’s side and passenger side front pipes and loosely tighten the supplied clamp and the reused flange bolts and nuts and reinstall the existing hanger bolts.
  6. Slide the center section onto the front pipes and loosely tighten the supplied clamps. Slide the drivers side and passenger side rear pipes onto the center section and loosely tighten the supplied clamps. Reinstall the existing hanger bolts.
  7. Position the new mufflers into place by inserting the mounting bolt at the rear of the muffler into the factory hanger. Mate the extension pipe and muffler inlet with the supplied clamp and just tighten them enough to still allow for movement while aligning the system. *But do not tighten them completely. Install the existing nut onto the mounting bolt at the rear of the muffler.
  8. With all components in place, use a straight edge along the bottom of the tips for proper alignment. Keeping in mind that it will take some time to align them correctly.
  9. Then start by tightening the flange and clamp in the front of the system first and then the clamps connecting the muffler sections making sure everything is still in alignment. Finish by tightening the existing brackets and the existing nuts at the rear of the mufflers.
  10. Fire the car up and take it for a spin around the block making sure there are no rattles.
  11. After logging on a few hundred miles re-torque your work.
