tubi

I just love my tubis -especially through tunnels and in between highrise buildings on either sides. "If you have the means-I highly recommend you picking some up. "Ferris Bueller!

Larini vs Tubi

We carry both the Tubi and Larini...

The Larini exhaust is more of the high pitched Italian - Ferrari Formula One kind of sound, it costs less and has much better tips (double wall) than the tubi (single wall). The sound of the Larini is plenty loud but is quieter inside the car than the Tubi.

The Tubi exhaust is a deeper throatier sound, very loud, still italian, but a deeper sound that the traditional ferrari. It costs quite a bit more and is louder in the cabin, producing more resonance.

They are uniquely different and appeal to different people. We prefer the Larini but the Tubi is also a nice sound. We believe that the Larini should produce a small gain in hp over the Tubi due to the internal design, however we have not dyno'd the difference on the same car back to back to be certain.

Hi there,

Just wondering if tubi and larini have officially launched their exhaust systems for the Maser GT?

Cheers in advance

They have not officially announced the GranTourismo exhuast just yet. The word is however that they will have it finished late this year.

Considering that your GS already has a Tubi (OEM), you could just install the center pipes from Formula Dynamics and keep the "OEM Tubi" on the back. Then you record a clip and show us, because that's what I'm thinking about doing! :D

FD, is there any noticeable improvement in sound by doing that? How big of a difference from replacing the back mufflers?

Tubi

The Larini is ok, but the Tubi emits a sound like a nice 1964 250 GTO with Weber carbs. The Larini sounds like something off The Fast and the Furious. The Tubi also makes the same hp claims that the Larini does; the Larini's main appeal seems to be that it is cheaper...
Maserati made the Tubi the stock exhaust for the GS.

I just ordered a Larini x-pipe (Tubi doesn't make one) which I will use in conjunction with the Tubi boxes. Will keep you posted...

rjinvest, the Tubi you have is the OEM or aftermarket? Is your car a GS? I'd like to know how the GS would sound with the x-pipe + stock Tubi.

The Tubi exhausts are released but not too available and many dealers are marking them up quite a bit. If you're interested, give me a call and I'll see what I can do to get you a fair deal on one.

Larini + Tubi

Niteroi:
I have a 03 Cambiocorsa with the aftermarket Tubi boxes. if you have a GS, you have something very close to the sound you're trying to get; the GS comes with Tubi boxes and no Center Resonator. Its quite a bit louder than stock, and if you got the Larini x-pipe, I'm not sure how much difference it would make. Maybe Jeff at Formula Dynamics can let you know. I just had the Larini installed today; Jeff says I need to put about 100 miles on it to get it carbon-coated to get a good idea of the sound. I'll let you know.

Why 2 tips on muffler?

Another dumb question: Can someone explain why if there are only two pipes coming from the engine to two mufflers, why there are 4 tips (2 per muffler)? I don't remember the model, but I believe there is a new one which has only two tips (large oval tip off each muffler). Is this just a design feature, or is there some performance issue?
