    997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    Is it ok as a daily driver? What was the cost? Did you also do flash and intake upgrade?

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    I put the tubi exhaust on maybe a week ago. IT IS AMAZING, AND I GUARANTTEE YOU THAT THIS IS GOOD FOR A DAILY DRIVER. The sound inside the cabin is soft and quiet. At first i thought that this exhaust is way too quiet and i thought i have waste 2300USD on the exhaust, but not until i go to valet my car. I finally hear my car in another perspective. The car is loud, but not too loud, but definitely louder than stock maybe even louder that PSE. IT sounds great, throaty, and i guess like a growl. I personally like this exaust because the sound is just right, and best of all the cabin is not disturbed by it, although you can hear it, it is not those annoying resonnance. The service people told me after they had installed it that it sounds better then most exhaust they have heard, including PSE. You have to hear it for yourself to believe it, if i have a chance i will post a clip but now, my car is in the shop for repair work. Its amazing how they can engineer this exhaust to be loud from the outside but really quiet, "compare to the noise outside", inside. I definitely recommand it!

    Check out this file, sound bite courtesy of Champion Motorsports...
    (other videos are available, but size limitations here prevent attachment)

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    Does the tubi exhasut include cats or is that a seperate unit? Did you install tubi headers and if so how much were they?

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    No i did not include the header since i am just looking for sound, but i have heard good things about it. They are priced the same as the tubi. Also, the Tubi exhaust does not include the cat. Hope you find this helpful!

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    I was told that changing the manifolds (headers) and mufflers would not affect factory warranty, but changing the catalytics may void the warranty. You might double-check this before making any plans.

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    Are there any HP gains when you change both? You had it dealer installed? No change in warranty right? It did sound good. I just listened to it. Thanks,

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    Supposedly there is an approximate 10 hp gain with the mufflers only, and an additional 8-10 hp with the manifolds. Both have smaller gains in torque (again supposedly), but I haven't seen any dyno evidence of either.

    I haven't put them on my car just yet, but plans are to put the Tubi mufflers on first, and if I like it go with the manifolds second. I'm also considering doing before-and-after dyno tests to see if the claims are reality. If I do, I'll post the results, good or bad, accordingly.

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    Thanks. Looking forward to your experiment.

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    I know I work here, but I gotta tell you that I think the Tubi stuff is spectacular. The workmanship is like Italian artistry, and the quality of the welds and the materials is second to none. The sound is loud, but tuned. It is perfect for my taste. Just the mufflers are great, by themselves, and make a large difference in out-right performance ; but in conjuction with the headers ;the throttle response feels like the car has a lightened flywheel ! I really think that they are the best. Just try the mufflers first, with the Tubi 4 pipe tips, that are beautiful in every way.

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    Revvv, they still comply with warranty right?

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    Couple more questions;
    1.should the cats be changed if you spend all the money on headers and exhaust or not necessary?
    2.is it best to do the evo flash and air box as well or does diminishing returns set in?
    3. What should the labour hours be for exhaust and then headers?

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    1) No warranty issues that I am aware of.
    2) My guys are telling me that the cats aren't worth the money; for the increase in power.
    3)Re-programing may not have sufficient gains, and will certainly affect the warranty.
    4) Service writers tell me about 5 hours labor.

    I wish we had a 997 Tubi sound bite for you.
    Working on it.

    I totally agreed to what you say!

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    Revvv... (and everyone else)

    Check the attachment on my earlier post on the first page - there's a small video clip attached with audio of the Tubi; it's not the best, but it'll give folks the idea. The Motorsports guys have two other videos with sound of the Tubi on a 997S being driven around. There's some wind noise in the files, but the one with the camera/mic placed on the rear bumper really gives you a good idea of how good it sounds. There's also one recorded from inside the car too. The files are each 50mb or larger, so attaching them here doesn't work. They aren't professionally done, but they are pretty good overall.

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    One more point - check out the Tubi Italy website, there's an English language version and a news release indicating that a 997S with Tubi manifolds and mufflers with stock cats gained over 30hp!! That's impressive if it's true, and makes the extra cost worth it in my opinion.

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    So best soution is EVO air box, TUBI headers and exhaust. Skip the flash and cats?

    Re: 997S - Who has put on tubi exhaust and headers?

    Where are these motorsport videos?

    Why do you say that? How HP gains? Thanks,
