    Greetings FerrariChat!

    I own a 2016 Ferrari California T Handling Speciale (HS). I've been on the look for an aftermarket exhaust system to fit in my car. The current exhaust system is good, yet it doesn't really do justice to the car's wonderful turbo charged engine. I prefer the exhaust to be very loud when valves are completely opened. I'm well aware of Capristo's offering as I have recently fitted their titanium package in my audi r8 v10.

    What do you guys recommend?
    - Capristo
    - Novitec Rosso
    - Fabspeed
    - Fi Exhaust
    - Anything Else?

    Mario (MDEL) had Capristo on his Cali and loved it. As I recall, it could be turned on and off with a remote...T

    The ECU tune is where all the fun is at - it kicked ours up to 488 territory :)

    Travis can elaborate on an ECU tune. Basically Ferrari spa uses the same engine in the California turbo and 488..........Ferrari drastically restrained the power curves of the California Turbo to make it feel energetic but restrained in acceleration so it does feel too fast during acceleration and then have a burst of hard acceleration at the high end. You all likely read this in the car magazines when Ferrari actually mentioned limiting boost and power across the low and middle RPM bands.
    I would recommend a Fabspeed rear X pipe and rear muffler bypass pipes with an ECU tune for any and all Ferrari California Turbos. You will have great sports car sound and real 488 style power that is shockingly good in the California.
    Check out Fabspeed Motorsport website for Video explanations and dyno details.

    Hello Joe!

    Thanks for the much needed feedback! I want to inform you that I've went for the capristo offering for the Cali T and the sound is surprisingly great after replacing the original mufflers. However, I still want to purchase the x-pipe! Would the fabspeed x-pipe replacement go with the capristo mufflers? and would I need to tune the car for that?

    Regards,
    MK

    My T is in storage till April and I am starting to look at possibly adding an exhaust. It sounds a bit tame as it is. I was curious to see what other owners have gone with.
