    Looks good!

    Don't be confused gang, it's inverted from installed position in those pics

    It will fit any NON CAT 308GTB, so 1975 thru 1977.
    The 1978-'79 were catalyst (although this unit would replace the whole system, but not for ON road use!)
    :D :D

    easily worth good bit...GLWS!!

    It won't go a GT4 without some work, still......not far off

    Nice! I have the same one sitting in my garage waiting to be installed. Bolts up but replaces the cats on my 78 as Tex points out. Legal in PA on a car of this age ; )

    I wonder if I could fit this to my 85 euro without to much cutting and burning. It would sound awesome

    I would have to show you the ANSA catalog, don't the QVs use two cats (or some years do)???

    The 308 headers were identical for many years, except for wrapping.

    You are very welcome if I wasn't shrinking the herd, I would try it myself!!

    Loud pipes save lives, the bikers say.....

    It's a euro so no cats. Still not sure if it would fit though

    That's a good question..

    IF the QV exhaust ports (and headers) maintained the same bore C/L spacing.

    Someone will know, or the header parts numbers would confirm or deny.
    I don't know if they ever changed design on 308 headers

    Muffler Shop guys can weld anything!!
    They would probably get it on there.

    FYI - this part is over $3k new with a nice discount! I know because I paid it! I have to get this thing on...man, I'm a slacker.

    I'm not complaining; you should see the price of 430 scuderia exhausts. : O

    "The 1978-'79 were catalyst (although this unit would replace the whole system, but not for ON road use!)"

    So this will bolt up to a stock 1978 308 GTS (for track only of course)? I assume I would lose the diaper?

    I don't think so - not without some mods. I have a Euro Qv and the long pipe to the front bank (i.e. the pipe shown on the LEFT in this Ebay picture but on the RIGHT of the car) has a kink in it to clear the suspension.

    You will see on your car there is a flange just rear of the RHS suspension joining your kinked pipe to the silencer box. If you leave the existing kinked pipe and flange in place on your car, remove most of the Tubi's long pipe, and have a flange installed on the Tubi about 8 inches (guessing here - you'll have to measure) from the silencer it should be good to go.

    ... and just make sure the brackets for the hangers are in the right place too!

    Dave you are exactly right, I looked at mine late last night. I'm still thinking about giving it a go though. Thanks for the heads up.

    I believe so yes. Yes you have to lose the diaper. The hangers are different as well - but are not a huge fab job.

    The deal with the shroud is that most of the manufacturers don't match the OEM 'center to center' tip spacing.

    But, I have the material and pattern to do an 'early shroud" in any configuration!

    Trouble is sceduling it thru Valeria's shop.
    They are hopping theses days..

    Can't help with the later louvered shroud, but the same thing would be true.

    I have done a little research and from what I can tell retail on these is about $3500 new. Several people have asked me for an asking price so I have decided to set the price at $1750 about half the price of a new one. This is below the current reserve on the ebay auction.

    Thanks.

    Just bought my first Ferrari a 1979 308GTS and just making my list of things that need sorted. This would go at the top of my dream list how great was the sound? Reason for selling, years on the car, location and of course price? Should be an easy install.... any concerns on install of my car. Could you please send model number.
