    Since I just bought your entire exhaust for my F430 the only thing left for me is getting an ECU tune after I get it all installed. Any deals on that?

    From what I have read and what has been said here. No, there is no humanly appreciated audible difference. You are just adding dollars per pounds shaved. Usual recommendations for an Inconel exhaust are a must for tracking (if you are a serious track rat) or because you just want to. For regular street use or sound, the stainless steel is recommended. It is also more durable and easier/less expensive to repair than Inconel.

    Me too

    I am sure you are in love with your NA V12. I can only imagine how much more you will be when that beast unleashes it's scream with the Novitec exhaust. I cannot wait for you to get it installed. That is how Enzo intended these cars to sound. But politics and policies are clamping them down. At least we have ways around it, for now.

    Great comparo!

    I make the Reid (#2) Tri-tip exhaust. It's a straight pipe that follows the factory routing and utilizes valves and the stock center tip to quiet it down.

    It has a short & equal length, non-merged design for making more power in the mid-upper powerband, an even sound (higher pitch with less bass) and low weight. Like all other 458 exhausts, with headers and cat deletes it gets rowdy.

    The brilliant exhaust is the best system I have ever heard. Anyone have one here in the US for the 458?

    How much difference to the sound will the headers make? It bumps the cost right up compared to just the cats and exhaust.

    I had Novitec on mine, but yes, that's the one that's part of the setup that went semi-viral on Instagram (also on car #6 in the shootout video).

    you mean Brents 458?

    Im still trying to figure out why Dan’s 458 and car 6 sounded different with the same setup. Only difference being that car 6 did not have the valves option.

    I can only assume having the option of the valves open somewhat made the sound not as good

    you’re called Kandi Man on YouTube aren’t you :) same wording and use of phrases. I can tell.

    Do you prefer the Fab Speed pipes or Novitec pipes? Do you have a video of the S line system with Novitec pipes?

    Burbles and pops aside (which is the result of a tune on #6), the biggest difference is the #3 has S-Line test pipes and #6 has Fabspeed test pipes. Also, Dan didn’t quite push his car as hard as #6 driver did (he actually slightly short shifted on the pull between the parking lot entrances).

    Yes, that’s me. :)

    All of my videos with S-Line are with Fabspeed headers and Novitec test pipes. It’s close, but I’m completely enamored by the Novitec’s sound when decelerating from high RPM - there’s a resonance that’s just plain rude. It’s noticably louder on deceleration as a result. I posted a video earlier in the thread demonstrating this. I think I prefer Fabspeed in other cases (need to hear in person to be sure). For me, I’d pick up Novitec for the deceleration sound.

    Is yours tuned? Does stage 2 make a nice power difference?

    Found it. Would the fab speed headers not achieve the same downshifts?

    I didn’t tune; not sure about the impact on power.

    I found the deceleration sound was impacted entirely by the test pipes (assuming Fabspeed headers were already installed in all cases). Not sure if Fabspeed test pipes will yield that same sound.
