Fabio, Bill informed me of the results and of Jared's (the CarFix guy) impressions, and he was MOST impressed.

It seems you've found the "key" to unlock the hidden capabilities of the 550!

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Fabio you may need to add one more piece to your exhaust system. An emblem for the rear trunk lid that says 580 HP

Its been special to watch your story develop from building this beautiful exhaust system to seeing it yield such great results, while also providing a concert of music along the way.
Cannot wait to hear it in person.
Best,

Hello Bill,

unfortunately th ereal engine power is littl ebit less, becasue the original poers is not 515 but 4/5% less ... the real power is around 480/490 HP, Is this the base where add the increasing.

My 575 on the dyno (but with original HGTC mufflers) did 551 HP at flywheel.

However the car at driving is completely changed, the increased power it feel well ....


Kindly

Fabio

Interesting, Fabio. So, instead of the advertised 485 HP at the flywheel a stock 550 would be around, what, 450-460 probably?

My estimation before the test, based of the driving sensations by me and my dealer, was of 50/60 HP.
Jared, the guy of CarFix did the two tests and result it is great, my estimation was prudent and driving sensations was correct....

Following the datas obtained in Tampa on the 575:

Wheels power in OE conditions: 439 HP at 7400 rpm
Wheels power with my full exhaust: 495 HP at 7400 rpm

The increased power is 56 HP but at th ewheel, if we supposed a mechanical efficiany of 11-15% the flywheel power is : 62 - 65 HP

I'm very happy!
Ciao Fabio,

Congratulazioni! I am very happy for you and proud of your endless dedication of this marvelous design achievement. Your engineering knowledge and expertise is world class!

I do not have cable or internet TV, but I will find a way to watch this Carfix episode on the Velocity channel...I can't wait to see it!

Saluti,
Gianni

Hello Seth,
thanks, yes 'over the moon!' is not far to my sensations ....
The guy is excited also becasue he saw with his eyes the power, it is not a data that i give him by email, and about it he had to trust ....

Just watched the recorded episode from my DVR. Very impressive - from 437 HP at the wheels before Fabio's exhaust to 490 at the wheels after the exhaust.

We all know that Dynojets can be tweaked to give whatever figure the dyno operator wants, but if these guys are on the level, that's a VERY nice bump in power.

I simply liked how they raved about the quality of Fabio's work, and how easily it went together. Great testament to your craftsmanship Fabio.

Wished they had recorded the sound both before and after.

Hi John,

i didn't see the episode, they will send a DVD for my personal use, and a short video that i can upload on my website and on my youtube channel.

Thanks so much for the appreciation...

I was very happy of the fact that they have not problem during installation and of the good fitting of the parts, i manufacture all the parts on a proper jig, then are all equal.

Perhaps they not apoken in the episode, but i have also supplied in the forniture the kit for manual bypass opening with a remote control, the kit is easy to install on the fuse compartment and don't need to install wires on the car, the kit have two connectors (male/female), the remote have two buttons, push one for have bypass always open, push the other bypass drived by ECU.
The kit include a electric diagram for easy connection.

If want to be remove is suffcient remove the electronic device and connect male wiht female connector and car will return to orignal conditions.

Fabio, they did touch on the remote control for the exhaust bypass valves, but that point may have been lost on some of the viewers.

They also did a side by side comparison (for a few seconds ) of your exhaust and the OEM, but it wasn't really as deep as it should have been. They simply pointed out that instead of having 2 x 3into1 headers on each side, you used a 6:1 merge collector, and they showed a closeup of it, and touched on its advantages.

They also touched on your pipe into pipe fitment and how easily the whole system fit together.

What they didn't do is record a sound clip of the 575 on the dyno with the OEM exhaust, then compare it to the sound clip on the dyno with your exhaust. That would have been the proverbial "icing on the cake".

I wanted to see Fabio's company name in neon lights
John should you have any thoughts or questions Jared posted to the CarFix thread on the other site.
It would have been nice if the new sound was captured on a drive. After watching it a second time they did pretty good to capture what they could between other segments in the show. Fabio, going to make an effort to capture your segment of the show with a cell phone so maybe you can get an idea of how it went.
The subject 575 looked great and I thought was captured nicely.

Bill, I had hoped they would say more about Fabio and his "old world" craftsmanship too, and that here's someone who isn't just reselling exhausts fabricated in some far east sweat shop.

I have the segment recorded on my Xfinity DVR, but am clueless how to get it off there and into a format that could be posted? Guess I'll bribe my grandson to do it

Fabio- Unfortunately, I missed it, but look forward to swapping a DVD with somebody. Infinity over here also has it available streaming on the internet, but I have not signed up for that yet.

Glad the install and results were so positive.
