Almost all of the usual Corvette parts houses have them (Paragon, Corvette Central, Zip, Long Island, Allen's Exhaust, etc.); however, all of them are significantly louder than the original GM sidepipes. Google "Sweet Thunder" - they've just introduced what the say are exact reproductions of the original GM pipes, with the original sound.

Fortunately you do have options. If you want original type GM pipes just refer to the big catalog guys or consult with NCRS judges for sourcing. Now, if you want to customize the sound and flow, there are companies like Allens or Chambered Exhaust who can really customize a set of pipes for your Corvette at a reasonable price.

Depending on if the car is original, I would agree going for the factory look pipes. However, if you aren't concerned with originality I've seen header sidepipe setups at Jegs, by Hooker and Doug Thorley. I almost got a set when I had my '74 but I wrecked the car. Silly Kid!
