    Here's video of my 458 Italia with Kline Innovation exhaust. I have the stainless steel, Valvetronic system with decat/test pipes, and headers. This is video with the valves open.

    Fantastic. Would have loved to hear the downshifts.

    I'll make some more videos with downshifts, and with the valves open & closed. I plan on attaching a GoPro on one of the rear diffusers to capture some audio at the exhaust. We'll see how that sounds.

    I couldn't be happier with the Kline exhaust. The low RPM growl is good, and the high RPM F1 pitch above about 5,000 RPMs is amazing. No drone sound inside the car. No decat gas smell. It's everything I wanted. Here's some photos of the exhaust.

    Thx, I don’t need valves closed. Just open with a pull to redline, and then a few downshifts. Very much appreciated!

    It's really changed the experience of driving the 458. I don't listen to music the way I used to and instead listen to the exhaust.

    Thanks. I did a lot of research. My priority was improving exhaust sound as much as possible, and I especially want the F1 sound at higher RPMs. I also wanted a Valvetronic system so I could control exhaust sound volume levels when I wanted to. It's everything I wanted and a good value compared to other comparable exhaust systems. I've heard the IPE and it sounds very similar to IPE, but a much better deal.

    Thanks, I agree!

    Performance improvements were secondary, since I've always been happy with the performance of the 458, so adding headers was something that I was hesitant in doing because headers are expensive, but I didn't want to wonder what performance or sound improvements I'd be missing without them, and since I didn't want to have any regrets, I decided to go with headers too.

    I already had the Capristo Exhaust Remote Kit to control the valves on my stock exhaust and it's compatible with the Kline exhaust, so I just kept it.

    Agostinho - you mentioned that you have not encountered the typical cat bypass smell? Can you confirm that is STILL the case? I love the straight pipe sound but damn that smell gets old AND gives me headaches after long drives.

    Can anyone with the Kline system (setup like the above) compare the valve closed to stock? Is it much louder closed than a stock 458? I love the sound in the video but also drive in areas where excessive noise could be a problem (HOA). Also, that level of sound can be very tiring on long drives at steady/low throttle. thank you in advance.

    I still don't smell any cat bypass smell. The real test is my wife who complains about the smell of anything she doesn't like, and she's never even mentioned smelling anything. If she doesn't smell it, it doesn't exist.

    Again, I have the Kline stainless steel, Valvetronic system with decat/test pipes, and headers. With the valves closed with the Kline system, it's still a little louder than stock with the valves open, but not I wouldn't say by much in decibels if driven normally, it's just a different sound (low growl). Even with the Kline system's valves open, I can drive around with a passenger as I normally would and have a conversation without it being annoying. The car does get loud when driven hard at higher RPMs with the valves open, and it gets loud with the F1 high pitch sound from about 5000-9000 RPMs....loud in a very, very good way. I couldn't be any happier.

    Of all the video clips that I have heard this one is the most satisfying, given the price and vendor support for the forum it seems to be the go to exhaust.
