Test drove a 360 Modena today!

Well guys.....and I know I'm preaching to the chior here! But I really enjoyed every second of it. Seriously considering making an offer.

A quick question though.
How much and/or what is involved in adding Tubi or Capristo exhaust? Are they just slip ons? what is involved in that process and approximate total price installed.

Thanks

Those units run $4K - $5K average and it's quite a job.

Rear bumper has to be removed as well.

It's pricey!

Look at a few others as well such X-OST, etc.

All Ferrai exhausts are pricey for no other reason then they can be!

There is a fair bit of time involved, but no surgery. These systems bolt right up.

These cars sound fantastic with a trick exhaust fitted. Be sure to have a look at the catalytic converters as well, including the pre-cats if this car has them. Replacing the headers with no pre-cat parts and switching out the main cats for hyper-flows help reduce the likely hood of cat related engine troubles down the road.

Very good advice on Cats and headers.

Fabspeed makes a very good header setup that is a bolt-on and which bypasses the troublesome pre-cats on the 2000+ 360's!

An acquaintance installed one and notes very good advantages.

What exactly are you referring to? Installing the exhaust or inspecting the cats?

No one commonly inspects the cats as preventative due to the amount of time it takes. This is generally only done if a problem is found or you're installing a new exhaust.

Most dealers have no problem installing after market exhausts.

Thanks Josh...But in your opinion which of the many exhausts do you prefer for a 360???

I had an ANSA system on my 360 berlinetta and it was sharp and racy but not too loud. I am quite fond of the Capristo systems though. You can get them with different sound levels and also with butterfly valves so you can go more silently as you go through your neighbourhood when returning home at night. The Capristo has a singing F1 sound which is very nice IMO. For my taste, I choose a slightly louder system for a berlinetta and a notch quieter for a spyder.

I suggest you listen to different systems on youtube to get an idea what kind of sound you prefer. Tubi:s are nice but they are IMO a bit too guttural instead of singing. It is all about personal taste but whatever you install, it will likely sound better than the original exhaust system.

I run Capristo on my 430 spyder and I am very happy with it.

Good luck!

In a runoff, I liked the sound of the Tubi best. But my car came with the Ferrari Sport exhaust as an original option. To me it sounds great, and I wouldn't think of trading it, even for a Tubi.

I also like the capristo. i would recommend hearing several set ups. As there is little in the way of verifiable power increase, it's all about the sound. Also, consider freeing up the intake as well as the exhaust and doing a remap to take advantage of the changes. Just slapping on new exhaust could actually hurt your power in some circumstances.

I'm a little late in posting a reply but I've been out of town for a few days. My preference (and what's on my car) is the Tubi. I think the Tubi makes the 360 sound perfect. A friend had a Capristo on his 360 and it was just way too much for everyday driving. I know Capristo makes a couple of different sound levels and I'm not usre which one he had. It sounded amazing, but too loud to live with everyday.

With a little patience one can find a good condition used Tubi for a 360 for under $2000. I'll differ a little from what others have said in that it isn't really a big job to install on a 360. Yes the rear bumper has to come off but it's really not hard to do. Make sure you align it properly when reinstalling. The actual muffler install is fairly straight forward. If you're doing it yourself make sure you get the mounting bracket back on in the proper position. It's slightly curved and it's easy to reinstall it "upside down". This will result in your exhaust tips being pointed up at an angle instead of level.

Cheers.


EDIT: just realized this thread was from last August.......Doh !
