IN THE SHOP | McLaren 650S

Hi all,

I wanted to share this gorgeous 650S that was shipped to us recently for the full Fabspeed treatment - HJS 200 Cell Sport Cats, Supersport X-Pipe w/Can-Am style Tips, BMC Air Filters and ECU Tune.






Our Sport Cat Downpipes replace the four restrictive OEM Catalytic Converters with two ultra high-performance HJS German 200 Cell Sport Cats for maximum performance and sound, and no check engine light guaranteed. Also included are thermal heat blankets which are vital to keeping heat in the exhaust which maintains the maximum velocity of exhaust gasses, allowing the turbos to spool faster while ensuring maximum power is extracted through increased thermodynamic efficiency and flow.



Fabspeed Motorsport developed our exhaust system with direct Solidworks flow analysis in order to maximize the flow characteristics and performance qualities. The Fabspeed X-Pipe was designed to significantly outflow the $5,000 factory optional race exhaust system. Exhaust flow is smoothed out for a more pleasing, exotic sound and increased power to match. Available with several tip options.

Does the X pipe on the factory sport exhaust void the extended Mclaren warranty? I know the down pipes would, but what about the x pipe? How easy would it be to swap on and off if needed?

Hi zee,

Ultimately it comes down to your dealer's discretion as some are more lenient than others with modifications/upgrades. That being said, the dealer would typically have to prove that anything you do to the car to be the root cause of any issues you may experience in order to not cover a claim/void warranty, which with bolt-on exhaust is pretty uncommon. We even have several dealers installing our components around the globe.

We typically quote 5 hours for the install of the X-Pipe, which is a direct bolt-on install with no cutting/welding required so it is a fairly straightforward swap.

Hey, my car never looked better .. it sure never sounded better.

Gotta give major props to Scott and his team. Thy were awesome. Accommodated my crazy ass schedule, worked with my transporter (unfortunately, no, not Jason Stathom), and delivered a rocket ship back to me.

Putting around, the car is easy to drive as ever, just with a much better tone, no so loud cruising to cause complaint from my wife (unlike my viper, GT500, Harley, well everything else I own). Step on it and with a whoosh the flux capacitor kicks in and you’re time traveling, or at least it feels like it. Power comes on so quickly, it claws at the road for grip, the torque just pulls and pulls .. you are just slammed in the seat. My wife on the first time I just ran it thru 2nd with her said she thought something had happened to her stomach, she was shell shocked at the acceleration, it’s truly crazy. Next mod is just moving from the brand new Corsa PZero’s to sized up R888R’s. Then time to just drive and enjoy. Well, I’m also doing a Shelby style (satin black center band with red accent outline stripes) stripe on her to add a little something something.

Thanks Scott and FabSpeed!! Driving my dream car, and it’s a freaking spaceship.

Vipers & Stangs & Bikes, oh my.

Hi Dave,

Thank for the kudos - It was our pleasure to work with you and pleased to hear that you're enjoying the car!

Good call on the R888R's, they'll definitely help you put the extra power down.

Please let us know if we can help out with anything else!
