    Here is a quick teaser clip from one of our wholesale shops, Ghost Motorsports in Los Angeles!



    Their 488 GTB is equipped with our Catbypass pipes and Supersport X-Pipe - hands down one of the Best combinations on this chassis!

    Fabspeed's proven x-pipe design offers the ultimate combination of horsepower, weight reduction, and highly-coveted F1 sound; directly replaces the factory exhaust, works with OEM Ferrari tips or Fabspeed's Challenge Style Tips

    FEATURES:

    • Fits all Ferrari 488 GTB and Spider vehicles (2016+)
    • Adds an intoxicating F1-inspired howl to the exhaust note; even better than a modified 458 Italia!
    • Increases power and throttle response by maximizing exhaust flow. Performs and sounds better than any "straight-pipe" system; stock or aftermarket
    • Eliminates the factory valves for smoother sound, smoother power delivery, and a more enjoyable exhaust note at lower RPMs
    • Saves 7lbs (3.2kg) versus the factory Ferrari rear muffler

    Those 2 parts are the only parts on the car?

    Do you sell cats that won’t require a tune/void warranty?

    Adam,
    Thanks for the reply, None of our systems void warranties, and our 200Cel HJS Sport Cats do not require any tuning!
    On top of that, we guarantee no CEL!

    the sports cats are 2.5x more expensive than the normal catless system?

    Your system sounds great, but charging 3x the price to have sports cats, which don’t require a tune/void warranty make the cost unreasonable. It goes from circa 6k to 9k+

    sounds great though

    Not sure where you are getting your information, but I'm happy to clear up your confusion.

    Yes, Catalytic Converters are made out of precious metals (Rhodium, Palatium, ETC) The costs of these raw materials has skyrocketed in the past 9 months to make CATs 15x more valuable than gold per weight. This means that throughout the industry, prices have risen. Hence why the Bypass pipes you mentioned are far less expensive (Actually 1/2 price, not the 2.5x you mentioned)

    Feel free to read some more about it: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/africa/catalytic-converter-theft-south-africa-rhodium/2021/03/03/dc288192-777d-11eb-9489-8f7dacd51e75_story.html

    Hope this helps to explain some things! Feel free to reach out if you have more questions.

    Unless you get your sports cats which cost 3 x more than the cats you link above, you need to tune the 488, which voids the warranty.

    The Cats linked above are our Sport Cats. The only other option is the Cat Bypass Pipe which contains NO Cat and is half the price for that reason. Hence my prior statement.

    If you run Cat Bypass Pipes, you WILL need a tune because there is no catalytic converter.

    Happy to answer any other questions you have.

    Makes sense. Just annoying you need to pay so much more to not have a tune and not void warranty.

    Is the Ghost system above valved or not?

    No sir, the above system is not valved. However, we do have that option if you're interested.
