Looking for help. Is the Sport Exhaust worth the extra $$$
Technically, Mclaren will void your warranty if they discover you have installed an aftermarket muffler or cat. Having said that, if your dealer is easy to work with, replacing the muffler section only should be OK because replacing the muffler can't really cause any engine related problems.But what about voiding warranty?
I will give you a real life example. My friend owns a 430, has a Tubi sport cat and Tubi muffler on his car. While he was away on vacation, his engine started to develop a small oil leak and it turns out that the engine gasket seal was bad. Ferrari realized he had aftermarket exhaust system (more specifically on the sport cat) and denied warranty claim.You know I have read hundreds of times, things like potential engine problem due to aftermarket exhaust. Warranty claims blah blah blah... B.S, B.S, etc.
But NEVER ONCE have I ever read anyone ever having an ACTUAL engine problem due an aftermarket exhaust.
Who came up with this? Car manufacturer warranty claim lawyers ???
mistake I had factory sport exhaust..not nearly as good as fabspeed sport cats IThanks for the input. For the difference in price (Sport exhaust OEM VS after market) I will go the OEM route. Once your in for the big bucks a couple of grand more does not seem to matter much. And avoid the potential void of warranty.
Thanks again for the input.
Yes I must agree with you on that the Fabspeed is great a system and does provide a much more aggressive sound. Cheers....??mistake I had factory sport exhaust..not nearly as good as fabspeed sport cats I
