People here seem to be pretty enraptured with the Tubi exhaust system. Are there any others for the Maserati? I had several to choose from for my 996 and, in fact, went through several before settling on the Porsche sport exhaust (always open). Thanks
I have a tubi system on my 2004 coupe gt.
for the sound, you must get a tubi. if not, you must like a quiter car.
I took my car with a tubi from first day and I'm very "CRAZY" about my sound and big smile likes a boy with big icecream.
soon or later I will take a video shot and will post.
tubi will make very happy. my recommendation is "MUST GET IT"
not sure what other options there are, I read somewhere that somebody had straight pipes installed. I personally also have the tubi on my car (2002 spyder cambiocorsa) and it's amazing... but I guess it's personal taste...
The first upgrade I have done on all my cars was exhaust. Those cars were just made louder, nothing compares to the Tubi on Maserati, it is the most amazing sounding car I have heard. Not sure if its a combination of the chain driven motor along with tubi or what. While out for a nice long drive today a good song would come on but I still would not turn up the radio, Did not want to miss one-second of that exhaust note. Could not even count how many heads turned at the sounds my car was making. And now that I hit 600 miles today was able to wind the RPM's more and the sound was incredible at 7000 RPM, then would take my foot off gas and the pops and burrbles was worth every drop of gas I wasted by doing this.
Well, I've heard nothing but positive comments about the tubi on the maserati. I'm definitly going to drive or sample one to see if its for me.
I was hesitant & a little confused about it because of the resonance, I think thats the proper term, at low speeds. for example:
I saw a new 360 modena last night that obviously had an aftermarket exhaust. Not sure if it was a tubi, but it was parked/engine running and I could hear the exhaust clearly from about 100 yards. very deep, and as he accelerated slowly and lifted off the gas, I could hear some pops etc. This car was loud. He never went over 35 mph, feathered it and I could hear him a good two blocks away as I was walking along the sidewalk.
I've heard the new gallardo's and this 360 had way more presence from an exhaust standpoint.
When he drove by, I could almost feel the vibration of the exhaust. This is something that I probably wouldnt want to hear all day. But, I guess it depends on how it sounds from the driver's seat.
Do you guys think this was a standard tubi or a modified version, or something else?
You will hear it less from the drivers seat. People tell me they can still hear me a couple blocks away after I leave, because when car is traveling you are leaving the sound behind you. Another good reason to go with Tubi is it's the number 1 exhaust put on Maserati and Ferrari's and you will do better with resale
Maybe an other point: the sound is very acceptable at 3000-4500 RPM, typically at "cruising" speed, nearly the same as the standard exhaust inside the car. It changed my behaviour: I use less the 6th gear when I want to be quiet then when I want more fun I open a bit the window and use the car between 5500 and 7500 RPM. It is SPORT CAR MUSIC :twisted:
Yeah, I always pass on the upgraded sound package because I spend more time listening to the engine than listening to music. Plus, in my old age I primarily listen to talk radio and traffic reports :wink:
