    Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    I am considering the Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust, any opinions/feedback would appreciated

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    I love mine.....worth every penny spent.

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    my is getting louder... kind of don't like the way those tips stick out from the rear bumper...

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    Mine drones from 2300-2800rpm range. I have the Gen 3 version on my car. But overall, I am pleased with the sound that Fabspeed offers.

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    I loved mine too, but yeah the stock tips does stick out more and I am debating whether to get the FabSpeed tips.

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    I do agree the Fabspeed tips look much better than original, but because it sticks out more then they should, it drive me carzy... I think if I have the time, I would look for someone t cut the muffler output pipe a bit shorter before putting on the tips back.

    I think the PSE tip and its finish is much better... for example.

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    Are you guys saying the stock tips stick out further w/ the FS exhaust or is it the FS tips that stick out further?

    Has anyone tried tubi?

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    thx for the feedback... i already have the tips & think the look is great.

    As for the exhaust I assume it's a easy install for dealer & no warranty issues. Did anyone have noticeable performance increase or primarily sound

    I have FS tips on my Cargraphic and they don't stick out at all, the stock tips did not stick out either on the CG, maybe the FS exhaust has slighly longer piping

    Yeah, stock tips stick out further with the FS exhaust. About another inch, inch and a half.

    That's good to know. I have not changed my exhaust yet but that will have an influence on which system I go with. Thanks for bringing this up.

    They stick out slightly, nothing near 1 1/2 inch. Measuring from the bumper edge to the tip edge is approx 3/4", I don't know how it compares to stock but it must be pretty close. Hardly noticable IMO.
    Overall the exhaust sound is good, but it is louder than stock. About twice as loud in all RPM ranges. No significant drone or annoying resonance at all. I have had droning exhausts before and this is nothing like that. A very livable exhaust on a DD, if any question get the quiet version. FWIW I have the Gen 3 moderate sound for a 6 speed car.

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    it is a bit loud and sounds pretty good. i think the tips only stick out due to the FS muffler output pipes are slightly longer than stock

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    Ok, I went back to take another good look, it's about an inch or a little bit less than an inch, not the 1.5 I was posting earlier.

    Looking from the side, peaking into the plastic cut out, one can see the inside ends of the stock tips, it's still inside the plastic cutout, nothing major but it's there if one decide to look.

    A side benefit of the tips sticking out more is that I can clean and polish the WHOLE tip instead of just the ends

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    I am very happy with mine, at first i didn't like the look of the tips coming out a bit, but now i think it looks great though, sound will get louder by the time, noise more out side the car than inside, which is good i guess ^_^

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    1000 miles on mine so far, I've had both the quiet and gen moderate system, I prefer the mod system. Sound is great, not too loud at all. No drone. My stock tips fit exactly like my stock ones, prolly need to adjust them if you are having issues. The quiet version has a fused exit tailpipe, possibly this is the issue. The gen 3 attaches right at the muffler with a L pipe, infinitely adjustable.
    Fit and finish is perfect.
    The downside are the v band clamps, they wear out and loosen with 1 or 2 uses, they are junk. If your car is getting louder, check your clamps at the cat, they are loose. I am replacing mine with some oem 996 clamps, should fix the issue 100%, 15$ each from the dealer. Your system should have no drone at all, if it does, switch the clamps.
    Overall, all things considered, the best 997TT aftermarket system on the planet, of course my wife hates it, but that's another story.

    Not necessarily. There are others that could think otherwise. Perhaps, "one of the best" would be a better description.

    Re: Fabspeed Maxflo Exhaust

    price of FS system is very attractive, that i agree...

    Yes, but I'm not politically correct.
