Everyone always goes with Tubi. Why? Anyone have experience using ANSA on their Ferrari or know of someone that has this setup?

There is another company too that use to make exhaust for Ferrari but stopped. They are more popular so maybe you know Borla?
I have a Borla stainless steel header and exhaust system on my Jeep (OK actually it is behind the garage right now but you know what I mean). It's a great exhaust. Nice low, mellow tone; not too loud. My system is 9 years old and still looks great.

Borla still makes exhaust systems for many cars, I was disappointed to find they no longer make one for my car.

Not to hijack the thread, but what is the general concensus on the Capristo system?

The local dealer here says that of late he's been installing more Capristo systems than Tubi. At least on 360's.

I don't know much about this system either. This is a good hijacking! So now it is Tubi vs. ANSA vs. Capristo.

Where is Capristo made? Do you have some details on it?

This is all I know about it at the moment:

According to one local source, a number of 360 owners actually prefer the sound of the F355's engine, and they feel that the Tubi and/or Capristo systems give the 360 a proper "Ferrari" sound.

I've only heard a couple of 360's, and don't know what exhaust systems were on them. Whatever it was, it sounded just fine to me!

Origanial equipment for me! Me thinks Ferrari knows best. 8)
Bart, i believe Ferrari has to offer legal (and in some ways compromised) system as stock due to various emission/SPL laws. Personally, i like the sound of the Capristo system. The Euro spec 1985 308GTS QV here has a custom system BTW.

Amazing what removing just the cat pipes will do for an engine :)

I think some opt to go with capristo because it adds HP while enhances the sound. I have yet to hear a Capristo on a 360. The jury is still out on that one. I also heard the system runs a bit hotter than Tubi. I went with Tubi because that's the equipment used on the F1 cars and it sounds awesome.

Andrew,

I have an ANSA exhaust system (ca. 1982) on my 1976 308 GTB and I'm very pleased with it. This has replaced the ~135 pound OEM thermal reactor (pre-catalytic converter) muffler and has done wonders for my car's performance. ANSA's website is:

Here are some pictures of my setup.

4i2fly Ferrari makes their exhaust for the F1 cars in house.

And on exhaust side note, and not to hijack this further, has anyone heard the optional "megaphone" exhaust that was offered on the 288 GTO? And does anyone know if a similar system was ever fitted to a 308QV of the time? Or does anyone have photos of this system.

Also, back on track, has anyone gotten inside any of these systems to see what makes them so different from each other in terms of sound and flow?

Here is another system to add: MS Racing. I know nothing about them. But, check out the links they sound good!

Thanks for the Pic 250! Were you able to hear the system?! Also the yellow badge to the right of the left set of tail lights isn't normal badging on a 288. Could you tell me what the writing on it is? And there also seems to be a bracket fabricated on the right side of the gearbox. There are the tw coming down from the chasis at the back and then the two metal pieces, that you'd get at any hardware store, triangulated to what looks like an oil line. I'm assuming they had, or believed to have had, some movement or vibration with the solid line and secured it up. I've never seen this on one of these models as well. Any insights?

Charles,

Wow you have a good eye! I have a closer picture than that one I believe. I guess you are right, must me his fix for something. I'm sorry I can't give you more insight. Next time I visit I'll ask someone and they will get the answer for us.
