    I have a test pipe which I purchased on ebay and actually used it for testing on a 328. It only has about 50 miles on it. If this is what you need, make me an offer.

    Just put this test pipe on my 85 QV. Got it for 149 from Top Speed Pro 1 Performance on Ebay. I have a 2 years old Tubi set up with a gutted original cat in which it is ugly looking.This fit perfect and growls better but you will need 2 donut gaskets. One of the donut gasket can be bought from Napa for $13. Good quality and fit compares to Fabspeed or Ansa test pipes selling on Ebay. It has two holes one thermo probe and O2 sat sensor. It took me 30 minutes to swipe it out.

    I was lurking around this item on Ebay and they offered me a $40 discount so I jumped on it. Listed price is 189. No affiliation with seller. You can try the same if interest.

    Tubi for QV is NLA. I got mine from left over new old stock 2 years ago. Haven't seen one on Ebay since then.

    Regarding test pipes, why dont you procure with your local muffler shop to fabricate one for you. I just installed test pipes on my 83 QV and I ended up paying $100 for 2 test pipes (83 model uses 2) including gaskets and flanges. Im assuming that you can probably sort the test pipe with $50 or $60

    Most of them do....

    ANSA catalogs one but they are built to order.
    There's several small shops, in the UK and down in Oz that are making fine stainless replacements.

    ANSAs are not stainless....;)

    Yes I still do have the Larini exhaust that’s made the in Italy and I really love the sound, the built quality, and the looks.
    Larini also makes exhaust headers and test pipe as well, here’s their site: https://www.larinisystems.com/collection/ferrari/308-qv-corse
    I also like to add, if you have an old and no good cat, you can hollow it out and use it as a test pipe.

    I am tempted to get the stainless ANSA exhaust from Mr. Fiat above to compare with my Tubi and keep the one with better sound. My early Christmas present :D

    David, for about $1300 less you can get the Larini stainless exhaust instead.
