    Cool 348: nicest sounding and/or loudest aftermarket exhaust? - please post videos

    Afternoon all

    When I purchase my 348 if it doesn't already have it, an aftermarket exhaust to unleash that glorious sound is a must. There seems to be 3 exhausts that most fit, Larini, Tubi and Capristo. Does anyone have one of these fitted? Any videos? And what are opinions on the best sounding? And what about the loudest?

    Best sounding is Tubi imo. Loudest is Nouvalari Supersport - mine hits about 130db with cats (high flow). You’ll get a similar level out of some of the others but you have to remove the cats. A Nouvalari Supersport is a much ‘rawer’ sound than Tubi or Larini. Capristo has level 1, 2 and 3. 3 is loud, 2’s a good compromise.

    (After a bit of thought I’m going to be holding on to my 348.)

    Btw Nouvalari is just a marketing name. Theyíre made by PD Gogh in Sheffield (think it is). Theyíll fit an exhaust while you wait.

    Your Nouvalari Supersport sounds fantastic!! I prefer that to the Tubi in the later video, do you know if that Tubi is with OEM cats, sports or bypass? And your Nouvalari, what is the cat situation with that?

    Not sure about cats in Syís vid. Think he bounced between having them or not but could be wrong. His username on here is Angelis so you could drop him a message.

    With my exhaust I have high flow cats, also bought from PD Gough (so sold as Nouvalari) and a high flow air filter from K&N. Really opens up the airflow if you minimise the restriction. I was going for a recreation of the old Challenge exhausts which were essentially unsilenced and that setup is about as close as you can get.

    Sy did a vid a while back where they tested lots of exhausts on 348s but canít find the vid. Generally most of the sports exhausts hit between 115 and 120db. My setup hits about 10db more which is twice the volume. If you go for something like that just make sure you have VERY understanding neighbours Also donít expect to get near a track with her without Decibel Devils!

    This is Syís car being driven in anger with the Tubi. Pretty sure this was de-catted.

    The Nouvalari Supersport (they do a Sport as well) is a less refined sound, itís just brutal if Iím honest. I think most agree the Tubi is the nicest sounding exhaust for a 348 but it does depend what youíre after. For me I wanted a raw sound like the unsilenced Ferrari track cars from a few years back. Nouvalari SS fit the bill.

    Found a vid for you, Mark. This is one of the original Le Mans cars which shows just how 'raw' the sound was. Listen to this through headphones then my setup from my first vid through headphones. Clearly mine's nowhere near as highly tuned but maybe it gives an idea of why I went the route I did, I was looking for that deep, rumbling, raw sound. Mine pops and barks quite a bit when you open her up but didn't want to wake the neighbourhood when making that vid
