    Just drove my car with a new Tubi! All i can say is Holy Sheet!!!

    The car sounds terrific!

    My question : is it normal to have a rumbling sound when you come off the gas? I hope it is because it sounds great but it is a little different.

    Also I am assuming the smoke and odd smell is just a burning off of the unit.

    I can't believe I didn't do it sooner


    Thanks in Advance!

    Yes, the burble on deceleration is normal and part of the fun :)

    Some burning smell is normal with a new exhaust, it only lasts a day or so. Enjoy! I went with the Capristo, but they are both great and truly transform already great cars!

    Burble or BUST!

    I've driven behind 360's with tubis installed and I know for a fact it sounds best from the rear. What an incredible car!

    Have fun :)

    I'm considering either a Capristo or Tubi for my 99 355F1 Spider. What price range am I looking at for the exhaust only as I can have it installed locally.

    I got to follow several 355's, a 360 CS and a 512TR around the country side a couple weeks ago. The best spot to be was in the back of the pack listening to all the beautiful music!!! I have to admit though at a couple stops I snuck up in the lineup just so they'd pass me. That was even better!!

    Even being four or five cars back I could tell when the CS was going to pass someone. I'd hear him grab a gear or two lower and the screaming would start!! I don't think he even has a Tubi yet, but I know at least a couple of the 355's did. They all sounded great!

    You can check with site sponsor HG Parts (http://www.hgparts.net/) I think he carries both systems. Should be around $2800 or so (plus shipping I believe.

    Which F-car do you have?

    About the smell--that's normal; it'll go away after some mileage. Mine smells like cinnamon now! Not even kidding--cinnamon! :D

    Yes, the Burble sound on deceleration is normal, i wondered that to when i first got my Tubi. Also, that smell will go away after a while, i think it's just shipping oil coating in the exhaust system that will burn away.

    Also, i notice a sound change in the Tubi after it is warmed up between 3K and 4K RPM, a nice rumble noise, especially going under an over pass how it echos back...

    I do get a lot of comments from people driving behind me, i wish i could get the nerve up to let someone drive my car so i can follow it to hear it... :)

    My Tubi was my best investment to my 328, had it done last winter with my Major Service...
