Hi,

I think i am going to get the QP.

Questions regarding some power upgrades.

How much are the Tubi exhaust and ECU chips?

And where could i get them aside from the dealer?

thanks in advance.

FM dealers do carry tubi but sell them at a premium. Some said if the exhaust mod is done outsite of the dealerships the warranty would be voided. I don't believe it is true but got mine at the dealership and received a good discount, just $200USD more than the best price i found on the net. 3400 for me but a bit higher for the QP's.

Eurotek, even though i haven't yet able to get the programming to work on mine but i believe Euotek is the place to go. Talk to Kevin or MVP on this forum. It cost 2K (racing prog.), may be slightly higher as it was done on a group buy deal a while back.

It always puzzles me why people buy into Dealer scare tactics over a muffler. A tubi, at least on my Spyder, is nothing more than a Muffler, not a System, is installed way past the Catalytic or the o2 sensors.

Why would our cars be any different than another vehicle? Midas mufflers are in almost every city, because mufflers are a pretty passive part of a car, designed to "muffle" the sounds of a cars exhuast. For a dealer to imply or state this is BS. Most states have Laws governing Voiding of warranties anyways, ..if your Electrical goes out and a dealer says, "well, you have that Tubi on your car, so, we are gonna have to deny paying the costs to redo your electrical system..."...I think he will need a pretty talented lawyer to defend him for being in Bad Faith.

1991 Lotus Elan modified little monster
i hate to call you a hypocrite, but if there is nothing magical about a tubi, why do you proudly include it in your signature? why not 2002 Spyder Cambio Midas!?

I'm new here. What's a tubi?

I know it's some form of a muffler that is changed from the stock one, but what does it have that the stock one doesn't?

& another question: how much performance would the ECU upgrade effect?

Thanks!

Thanks for all your info.

When i called the dealer in DC/VA area they said 4900 for it.

I was like what !!! When i had my 911 or BMW it never cost that much, i know is a tubi but again is just ah muffler.

Anyways, so i did some further reaserch and called tubi usa and got in touch with the wholesaler in GA. Going to give him a call to find out if i could pick up a used one or give me a good price.

I will let you know.

Thanks.

BTW, how was that group buy for ECU ended up ?

yea, 4900 is too much. they are a couple of members on this forum did the mod on their QP's. you should be able to find their posts through search.

the price was about 4-500 less than if you were to get it directly from eurotek. MVP (Kevin) organized the group buy you should give him a call. I got mine done but had problems after I upgrated to the racing program, waiting on eurotek to program my unit again. below is a link to MikeA's dyno result on his spyder.
