Question New to the corvette world

I would like to know anything that y'all might think a new owner may need to know about these c5s. I just got a 04 c5 almost 2 weeks ago and I'm wanting to know what i can do to add some hp, the car is 100% stock. I'm looking in to a new after market exhaust for it but don't want something that sounds like a truck at idle. Everyone I've look at is almost 900 for just the axle back. Is this what i'm going to have to pay to get something that sounds good? Any input will help thanks.

Welcome to the Barn. As for your questions:
There are hundreds of ways to make power in an LS motor. Make sure you do it right or you're going to be wishing you had.
As for an cat back system, go to YouTube and take a listen to different systems to find one you like.
Price? 500.00 used to around 1200.00 new. Give or take a few bucks.

Means do your homework first. A good thing to remember is: Fast, cheap, reliable.....pick two because you can't have all three.
LS1tech is a great place for just about anything you want to know about the LS series of motors.
