Bypass CAT Upgrading,
an Hungarian friend have installed my pipes two weeks ago, follow results:
1 - they fit good on the exhaust interfaces (flanges from headers and central pipes).
2 - as i thought the lower alluminium plate can't re-install because the stiffener clashed with my pipes, this is due to my pipes design.
He decided to not re-install this plate.
3 - mi friend told me that sound is great with burble.
4 - about the increased performance, he didn't tell me because he is busy at work and not drove the car, he only engine run after the installation pipes.
About the point 2,
I prefered do a most linear design as possible for follow reasons:
a) have less counterpressure
b) less heat radiaton
c) NOT COPY other manufacturers...
The exhaust lower plate is not structural (ferrari PN 985216839), is made by very thin alluminium plate with stiffener in the upper side, this plate is locked on the frame by four small bolts in four big slotted holes ...
This week mi friend send me the original plate, is my intention to make a new plate (Al, SS or Ti) with a slot in order to not clash with pipes, and include this plate in the kit.
For me is better to have good pipes design and replace plate (ot not re-install) instead to mantain this plate and not good pipes design ....
During the last weeks i had another idea about those pipes, good or bad ..?
For me good, but it depend from the tastes, for sure no other had thought to do it for the F599!!
In this case even more so, the lower plate is to be remove or replaced by my new design plate....
Best regards at all that will spend time for read above ...
