DEVELOPMENT: From the factory, the Ferrari 488 is extremely reserved and quiet – a travesty! The muted exhaust note and silenced turbos are not befitting of an exotic car and we sought to elevate the driving experience while optimizing the exhaust for maximum power gains. The valves open path piping on the factory system terminates in just under 3″ piping. We opted for 3.5″ piping to maximize flow and performance, especially on vehicles with an ECU tunes! An incorporated X-pipe results in a higher pitched tone while the longer piping helps smooth out the exhaust sound and mitigates drone.
SOUND: Quite simply – as Enzo Ferrari intended. You’ll be treated to a greater presence from the turbos and greatly enhanced spooling sound under heavy throttle. The mechanical chorus of the engine is amplified in all scenarios to a perfect flat-plane crank V8 wail. The Sport version offers the perfect blend of refined aggression that will never be overbearing with the ability to fly under the radar when cruising. You will not miss the transition between valves opening and closing as you’ll have control over the volume with your right foot. The Competition version – being a straight pipe system – is more aggressive under all conditions while still being streetable but will certainly attract attention.
CONSTRUCTION: Each component is assembled in the USA out of mandrel bent, thick wall .065″” T304L stainless steel. Our billet 304L stainless steel flanges are precision cut on a 5-axis CNC machine for the best possible strength. Back purged TIG welding (with ARCAL™ Prime argon gas) ensures proper weld penetration and longevity – crucial for durability on the track. We fabricate the exhaust using thick gauge aluminum fixtures which act as a great heat sink during the welding process and prevent warping not only of our products, but the fixtures themselves to ensure perfect fitment.
CERAMIC COATING: Jet-Hot ceramic coating is available for an additional charge. Extreme (1300) or Ultra Extreme Heat (2500) coatings can lower surrounding temperatures by up to 65% and protects from thermal oxidation and corrosion. Please contact us for more information and a quote.
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT?: The Competition version of this product may trigger a check engine light due to removal of factory catalytic converters. We suggest a custom ECU tune to disable any check engine lights (for track use only).
HJS HD 200 CELL CATALYSTS: The highest quality catalytic converters available, known for their industry leading flow and durability. They are efficient enough to meet strict EURO 4 emission standards while still allowing for an increase in flow. The HD design uses premium triple foil winding for maximum strength. The brazing stripe is an extra feature in the interest of durability – it prevents the core from moving or experiencing any damage from sustained high horsepower abuse.
BOLT ON AND GO: Every set is rigorously quality-checked prior to shipping and then foam packed to ensure your order arrives in perfect condition.
LIFETIME WARRANTY: Enjoy your SOUL exhaust components with confidence on both the street and track as they are covered for life! Our team will quickly work with you to resolve any issues or answer any questions that you may have. We cover our HJS catalytic converters with a 3 year warranty while the headers themselves are backed by our Lifetime Warranty.
