Hi I am new here and I drive a 512TR when ever I get the chance. Presently I am unhappy with the standard exhaust fitted to this car. It sounds great when u floor it whilst driving down the road, but sounds pretty crap when revving whilst being at a standstill (bit like a hoover).
Anyway I would like to upgrade to something that is violently loud with a deep bass rumble to it - the sort of sound the Lambo Countach made in Cannonball Run. I would also like it to purr quite loudly even when the car is stationary in a traffic jam. Unfortunately the high pitch formula 1 note that a lot of the modern exhausts make is not for me. Can anyone advise me please?

I would have a look at a Tubi, I hear a lot of positive things about those. Otherwise contact a custom exhaust producer. They can create the exact sound you want. I can look up some addresses if you want.

Ferrari Exhaust Note

Dr Bob, Ive heard the Tubi and it gives out that high pitched Kawasaki motorcycle noise that I dont like. Ive had a quote from Larini Exhaust Systems. Is there any others you could suggest? Oh by the way I live in the UK. THANKS

Dan,

Welcome to the site. Kick back and have some fun. Now for exhaust questions.

The other choice is ANSA http://www.ansasport.com/ I'm not sure why everyone gets Tubi. Some of it is marketing, and the fact that Tubi is the OEM supplier of exhaust for Ferrari. Lanari is new for Ferrari. Contact our sponsor DexM for more info on all these. Maybe they can have it drop-shipped from a Euro distributor to save on shipping.

Cheers,
Andrew

I have recently purchased a Dyson DC04 Zorbster, and having read this thread, I am seriously thinking about sending it back to the manufacturer. Obviously there is something wrong with the hoover: despite having cutting edge technology (Duel Cyclone system and self adjusting heads) it still sounds nothing like a 512TR on tickover when the girlfriend is cleaning the house........ perhaps she could fit a Tubi !? :D

Huh, nope, at least not THE OEM supplier. Ansa is the proud supplier of the rubbish OEM manifolds on 355s which leak & crack. I don't know if Tubi supplies OEM parts to Ferrari, but if they do, they are for sure not the only source.

Ferrari Exhaust Note

Everyone says that Ansa exhausts are awesome, but there are two problems here, firstly all the dealers here in the UK have told me they dont do a 512TR Ansa exhaust. Secondly Ansa's are supposed to be made from mild steel instead of all stainless steel, which according to Larini will rust in 2 years. Is this true? Ive got a sample clip of a Gallardo with a Larini Sports Exhaust fitted and it sounds pretty amazing.

Not happy :cry: I like that noise!! Although I'm not expecting the new one to be too high pitched!! The only high pitched noise will be me screaming :eek:

Dan - I'll forgive you for long enough to suggest that if you've never actually heard a 512 with a Tubi in person, it's worth contacting Scuderia Systems in Egham. If you give them a shout, you can download a video of a Tubi wearing 512 at the following page:

http://www.scuderiasystems.com/M-Media.htm

It's a very good representation of the real noise - although it will sound higher, simply because you're hearing it through speakers.

The only reason I suggest this is I'd completely disagree with the motorbike comparison - it's a much deeper sound. There's no substitute for hearing one in person.

If you're in the South East - worth popping into Modena Cars in High Wycombe. They deal almost exclusively in Lamborghinis, but they normally have a Ferrari or two in the showroom. Graham there will be happy to fire the Lambo's up for you in case you need to hear one in person for comparison!!
