    Thanks for the info! I look forward to hearing about the droning...or hopefully lack thereof.

    Ted,
    I kept the stock mufflers and installed Fabspeed secondary cat straight pipes...I also plugged the vacuum lines so the valves in the mufflers stay open all the time..I think it sounds great with NO drone inside or at highway speeds....Kevin

    Hi, did you put the cat delete pipes on your car and these videos?
    I have the Capristo mufflers on my car, and I have the remote control for the valves, and the sound is really pleasant, with the choice to reduce it at low speed when it is necessary.
    I did not put the cat delete pipes (yet) and I don't know whether I will install them because I fear it could be too noisy, with drone. I will try perhaps.
    Any information?
    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi G4titan,
    Which springs & sway bars did you choose?
    HGTE handling kit : 4 springs + the rear sway bar + ECU?
    H&R sway bars & springs?
    Novitec KW springs ?...
    Thanks & Regards,

    I've just done the same, sounds awsome, the tubi rumore was still giving quite a bit of droning noise even with the cats fitted. The sound is now fine for me, next up is lower springs and I am trying to sort gearbox ecu upgrade to HGTE spec, but UK dealers are clueless about this and want to replace the complete ECU at over £5000.

    I did the H&R springs and Sway bars... the parts are stuck in customs but should be here this week for final install next.

    Looking at ECU options but not high on my to do list :)

    Hello,
    Don't you feel that the sound can be annoying when you accelerate at low rpm? Do you feel more power too?
    I recognize the sound I have on my 599 too.
    I made installed the Capristo cat delete pipes 3 days ago (I had already the Capristo mufflers) and
    I confirm that the sound is really high, very castling in small speeds, and when you increase the engine speed ...
    This has awakened the heart of Enzo is in it too: I feel much more power

    Of course, you can close the valves of the muffler and it reduces the sound, but it's so nice to hear that engine
    Regards,

    @infinity....you're right, the brake lights are not working.But now work again...:)

    @Nicofr....yes, I feel more power too. capristo has measured 39 hp more on the performance test station.

    the sound is really loud. But the car is so well insulated that it is not a problem for the driver :)

    I have the capristo on mine and the sound is wonderful. I did the cats as well.
