    Our old friend Fabio supplied an entire 575M 6-1 exhaust system to be used on the show CarFix. They will install the system and run it during the show. The show airs on the Velocity channel on 28 April 2018. Should be interesting because Fabio's exhaust is by far the best sounding out there for the 550 or 575M, a lot like an F1 V12 or an F50, and looks like an HGTC exhaust.

    Yes I've seen his videos on youtube the exhaust is awesome, do you have any idea what it cost or how to reach him since he's banned? Why was he banned to begin with?

    He was banned because Fchat thought he was making advertizing efforts while posting the progress of his new exhaust project even though he was not a sponsor advertizing. Really sad because after all it was during testing of the first system and it was not ready for retail sales. Fabio is the best and most knowledgeble guy on the planet for exhaust and should be taken into our warm and open community. I have had a testrun in his Maranello so I know what I am talking about.

    Can't wait to see this episode. Fabio's exhaust on the modern 559/575 reminds me of that raw throaty sound of the Daytonas
    I don't think any other exhaust system can produce this unique sound

    I have his full exhaust on my 550...it transformed my car. I was considering selling the car before the upgrade as it lacked the dramatic sounds I've grown up hearing coming from the rear end of Ferrari's. The Maranello is a modern classic though and with the valve controller provided you have the option to unleash either Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde. :)

    I purchased it from Fabio directly. I received a discount because I was the first 550 Maranello I believe. He built it with his 575M as the beta platform. The system fit on my 550 without issue but the header design is slightly different from the 575 since I chose to retain some emissions components.

    My system included:

    6-1 single piece headers
    200 cell catalytic converters
    double-H center resonator delete
    valved HGTC style mufflers
    valve controller
    necessary hardware (clamps, connecting pipes, etc.)

    My car is getting serviced right now. I'll make some sound clip videos once I get it back.

    It's a fantastic piece of kit...Fabio is a great guy as almost everyone else I'm sure would attest to. I'm confident it's the best exhaust note you could possibly achieve on the 550/575.

    For Comcast/Xfinity the channel varies depending on the market, but in Houston it's on channel 670

    Doubtful. They seem to never release the rights.

    Tres55,

    Does your 550 sound like the 575 sound clip? That is pretty amazing. I remember when he was working on the project and got his Fchat beat-down. Too bad. community lost again...

    From inside my car I wouldn't say it sounds exactly the same as the video but close. Keep in mine mine has all the emissions stuff intact and I'm not sure if Fabio's car has it all...but a friend of mine said he had to roll his windows up when I blew past him in the tunnel. It sounds like an old F1 V12 at full throttle under load.

    That video is when the X pipe was on. The V12 classic sound with the sound of each cylinder should be more present and with slightly less high pitch with the double H-pipe.

    Fabio's system has all the European emissions controls intact. It took a lot of trial and error getting all the OEM emissions gear to work, especially lambda sensors, to work perfectly.

    They did a before and after dyno test on the same dyno and the 575 featured in the show gained 57 RWHP with Fabio's exhaust. Allow 15% for mechanical losses and that is around a 66 hp gain at the flywheel.
