Hi guys, I need your inputs on my purchase decision of an exhaust system. I have 98 355 F1 and I am thinking about getting an new exhaust system for my baby. I was recommended most of 'tubi' and actually sampled the soune from a guy who has 360 with it on it. but I understand it is louder but I am not quite sure if I like it much. I really like the sound of my stock system especially around rpm 3500-5000 that high pitch hawling sound (I am sure you all know what I mean). but I would like it more if that sound were louder without loosing its characteristics. help me with what you have heard about the 'tubi' system and whether I would be happy with it on it.

p.s. does each ferrari (ex. 355 vs. 360) has different exhaust sound?

Héla, niet lachen met de Limburgers. Waarom wordt er eigelijk met Limburgers gelachen? Ik vraag mij da al heel lang af.

Francorchamps is a 45 minutes drive from where I live.

If Tubi is so good, why does Ferrari not make it factory equipment?

:question:

I've been getting some secondhand inputs besides this forum about the tubi's. it is definitely louder and better in terms of getting noticed in public but it is still questionable whether the 'quantity' necessarily means quality. I personally think the stock sounds thinner and more beautiful like playing a stringed instrument like the violin. but the tubi...I don't know. I guess my initial question was whether that thin beautiful sound can be louder...
I'm still searching for more evidence for possibility. I kinda thought of what Bart is saying...hmmm...does factory challenge muffler is anygood then? By the way Bart, I know you had your beast back in the dealer for service have got her back already? And DJ Dirk I am very glad to see you in the reply section making local friends, but could you help me out with this tubi thing? Cause I know you hold Ph.D in the art of Ferrari^^

It really depens on what kind of car you are talking about
V8 or V12
i know that on a V8 it can sound amazing, but then it depends on what model, like don't dare to put it on a 360, that's just a shame.
but it sounds great on a 308/328.
last year i heard an amazing sound on a 355 Spyder, but unfortunually the car drove of so i don't know what brand of exhaust the car had

DJ Dirk...I have a little one in my engine bay. So...you seem to agree with me in the thought that tubi ain't that great on 360 cause that's what I tried and didn't like. but then you mentioned a 355 with a great sounding muffler. if it indeed had tubion it...it means the chances are tubi for 355 has a good chance having nicer (and distinctively different) sound than it was on 360. good news^^.

Bart...it seems your beast is facing an endless array of misfortune despite your overflowing love for it. I can't imagine the stress you stand everytime someone backs up and break your front bumper at a gas station or some death deserved moron harms your jewel with the key of his which opens the door of the miserable apartment of his. well, my car was keyed too a short while ago. and it happens time to time to my friends' cars in my town. so don't mind it and just get your car fixed. everytime you tell a story about your car having trouble, its funny how, if my recollection is correct, Bart, you, always so impressively joyous in getting your ferrari back...always seems to looking at the brighter side rather than feeling so consumed by thinking about the unhappy event in the past. I'll expect to see you agian somewhere in the forum shouting..."Yeah! my dealer says I can have my car back by next week!!" ^^.

p.s. I put on a photo of my car and bike in the garage section, take a look^^

Geintje!

Hopefully this is not considered blasphemy but have any owners out there tried Borla? I know they make/made several systems for Ferrari's. Most of the applications I have heard from other cars they have a nice low rumble to them and get progressively louder. They are T-304 stainless and have a lifetime warranty I think. Just an idea.

I have a Borla system on my Jeep and I love it! It increases my low end torque and has a nice low-mellow tone. I have heard that Borla no longer makes exhausts for Ferrari. :cry:

Tubi sounds incredible.... the 355 sounds rather strangled without one.
I am a Tubi dealer and I can prove it - this is one of my customers cars against a stock F355.
Apologies for quality of the file.

manu. indeed the sound was incredible, I couldn't even hear the stock one following behind. lately I heard many great things about the tubi system and slowly I am leaning towrds having it on my car. I thank you for the file and suggestion.
