    A Sound Improvement: Sport Catalytic Converters
    Give your F8 a nice boost in overall exhaust volume with Fabspeed HJS German Sport Catalytic Converters. Because they are so much more free-flowing than the factory catalytic converters they let a lot more of the twin-turbo V8's exotic exhaust note through. Finally, the car has some much-needed turbo whistle.


    Features:

    • Fits all Ferrari F8 Tributo vehicles 2020+ Worldwide

    • German-imported 200-cell HJS Tri-Metallic catalytic converters

    • HJS Emission Technology catalyst cores that fit in the engine bay for the most flow possible

    • No CEL (Check Engine Light) or tune required

    • Gives a noticeable improvement in exhaust note for exotic high-performance sound; combine with the Fabspeed Valvetronic X-Pipe Exhaust for that iconic F1 Twin Turbo whistle

    • Saves 5 lbs / 2.2 KGs compared to the factory catalytic converters

    • Constructed from mandrel-bent T304L stainless steel, billet stainless steel flanges, and T321 stainless steel flex bellows

    • Simple direct replacement bolt-on installation, no cutting or welding required.
    Remove the factory GPFs (Gas Particulate Filters) and get ripping F1 car sound out of your F8 Tributo whether you're at idle or full throttle with the Fabspeed F8 Tributo Supersport X-Pipe Cat-Back Exhaust System. Featuring our industry-leading X-Pipe design that improves exhaust scavenging and gives the Ferrari flat-plane crank a high pitched F1 wail.

    SOUND:

    Unleash the full roar of the Ferrari Twin Turbo V8 by getting rid of the GPF's and muffler and replacing them with our signature X-Pipe configuration that delivers an iconic F1 high pitched wail at full throttle and an aggressive exhaust note while at idle or part throttle. Expect a lot more turbo sounds as well to add to the symphony.

    FEATURES:

    • Fits all Ferrari F8 Tributo vehicles (2020+)

    • Designed to fit with the factory/OEM Ferrari tips or with Fabspeed Carbon Fiber Tips

    • Constructed from high quality 14-16ga CNC mandrel-bent T304 stainless steel for maximum performance and durability

    • 76mm 3-inch tubing throughout

    • Removes restrictive GPF filters

    • Constructed from 14-16ga CNC mandrel-bent T304L stainless steel

    • Simple DIY (Do It Yourself) bolt-on installation, no cutting or welding required
    All Fabspeed performance products are backed by the Fabspeed Lifetime Warranty

    Buddyg,

    Thank you! We are very happy with the results, not only the sound, but the added power gains are absolutely a plus!

    Simple easy question.

    Money back guarantee that NO CEL lights or any other negatives resulting from removing the GPF ?

    I don't believe any power gain is on anyone's mind at all. The F8 is pretty fast. Its the damn GPF and its removal.

    I would have thought with the release you would describe what is done with the sensors relative to the GPF ?

    Great to hear from you again Mandalay, You never got back to our previous PM regarding your prior comments!

    In terms of the GPF and sensors, We are currently still developing Bungs to mitigate the filter issues. However, as I'm sure you know, they are extremely finicky.
    Thus, further, development is needed before we can fully guarantee no issues or CELs after GPF deletes.


    If you have more questions, feel free to PM us again!

    Thank you for your response. I imagine most are waiting to see a solution to no CELs after GPF deletes. Ild imagine sales would go through the roof.

    High flow cats and the center muffler bypass will not cause a CEL, unfortunately, our Valvetronic may cause a CEL.
    Really not much can be done outside of tuning the CEL out. However, due to the current EPA regulations, it is now federally illegal for us to alter the light.

    Just curious but if its illegal to alter the light due to EPA regulations then how is it legal to remove the GPF per your prior post?

    I know you guys are trying your hardest for solutions but other than cosmetic body changes the war against valve opening , GPF and the like are all stacked against the F8.

    I think its a case of like the sound of the F8 and get over it. Saw one yesterday on the road side by side and let him take off. Sound is subdued .

    GPF's are not mandatory in the US yet, therefor their removal is not an issue, other than the CEL it creates.

    Furthermore, High flow cats are legal, just not in CA. Bypass pipes and altering engine lights caused by emissions defeat devices are the issues in the eyes of Uncle Sam, currently.

    No long-term effects that we have experienced, Our HFCs are just as effective at scrubbing your exhaust gasses as the OEM cats are so no worries there!

    Unfortunately, we do not have any clips of just HFCs and the OEM rear section. I will make sure we get that added to the list of content for you guys.

    Would really like to hear a sound bite of stock vs. “X Pipe” only.

    Thanks very much, John. For those of us who want to improve the sound but dread the deadly CEL, or worse voiding the warranty and/or not being able to pass smog, it seems like your “X Pipe” is the only-game-in-town!

    I would definitely be keen on a clip of how the exhaust note changes with just running the sports cat with stock exhaust!
