    John I ordered mine last month and put them on a couple weeks ago. I have a 91 348tb with Tubi. The Hyperflows rumble more at idle and scream louder at 5000-7000 rpm. It also seems to rev faster. I think you'll definitely like them.

    Oh, you want to know how to MAKE such a clip! Several ways -- you can use Windows Recorder and a microphone attached to a laptop, or you can use your digital camera and make a movie with sound; then there are software utilities that can strip off the soundtrack if you want.

    That is the smart way rather than those that replace the cats with a "test pipe" and thumb their noise at the law and our environment.

    Why don't you just go to the Ricambi-America website and see for yourself?

    John I have the test pipes and the Tubi on mine. The car sounds like a F1 car coming down the road. The best thing in the world is removing the factory cats. They hold so much heat and back pressure. You will love the Hi-Flow cars. Enjoy GQ.

    I am planning on purchasing one of these very soon as well as installing myself. In past experiences with exhausts, I usually replaced the exhaust "donut" gasket too. Is there gaskets of any sort I need to get for my Mondial 3.2 when I change this out?

    Actually... I'm giving the donuts for free to anyone who buys HyperFlow equipment from me.

    (John you'll be getting the donuts in a secondary small box shipped via 2-day air. Like the sugary treats, these donuts are somewhat "dusty", so don't open the little box on your dining-room table)

    Modern cats actually rob 30 hp from a Stradale? How bad is a 308QV's cat? Pulling it off should be worth about 10 on one of those. Anyone know for sure?

    Well I bit the bullet and bought one for my 86 Mondial 3.2. It took me about 2 hours to install and that was only because one of the factory donuts was rusted to the exhaust header and had to chip it out.I just got back from a spirited drive and I did notice some differences. First thing I noticed at startup was the sound. Even with the stock exhaust, it definitely rumbles more and sound more like a ferrari should when I rev it. When I was at the rear of the car, the exhaust was coimg out of the pipes a lot more forceful. Better flow! The car also seemed to heat up to operating temp quicker as well. On the road she sounded really nice and I think I felt better throttle response. Then again I did just put in a K&N as well. Hard to say. It does have a bit of a drone at 3k rpms but I know this can/will change as it breaks in. Most ss exhausts I have installed on cars seem to do this after going through some heat cycles. I really don't know if I got a lot more horsepower other than my seat of pants telling me I did. Was it worth the 750 smackers? I don't know. I paid less than that for a complete custom ss exhaust system including down pipe when I had my 03 WRX. I may dyno the car and see what I get. Now who has a nice non-tubi priced exhaust out there......

    Someone on another thread did a dyno and found they gained 1hp by removing the cat on a QV....

    Nathan -

    Wow.. that was fast. The box probably only arrived midday today. Glad to hear the installation was (basically) smooth. Did you take any pictures for your fellow fchatters?

    I have finally installed the Hyper-flows on mine after about working on it for a week(I'm not mechanically inclined as the rest of you guys). I can't say I noticed a big difference between the stock and Hyperflows. But I want to say, Daniel is the best - not only did he have great prices, & specials(free donuts), but the customer service, attentiveness, and followup were second to none.

    Thanks Daniel for the expedited package.

    Would my Mondial t Valeo Cab benefit from Hyperflows? I couldn't find a post that applys - - - doesn't mean it wasn't there - - - just couldn't find one. I'm restoring "Rachel" and have always leaned towards exhaust upgrades in my cars.
