The Ferrari F430, with its striking looks, and single plane crank V8 engine is a formidable supercar. Here at kline we decided to build the ultimate exhaust system for the F430. The criteria? simply to create an exhaust that acheived the best possible performance, sound and weight savings available.
The valvetronic system is actuated by the cars standard vacuum system. At low revs, gas flow is diverted through a harmonicly tuned silencer, producing an exceptionally smooth exhaust note, that is unobtrusive at cruising speeds, and from outside the car sounds very subtle and refined. at higher revs, the silencer is completely bypassed and the exhaust gasses are allowed to flow freely through a tight radius x pipe, and tuned cross sections to produce the most incredible high pitched rauciuos exhaust note.
Successor to the 360 Challenge Stradale, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. The 4.3 liter V8, and 3.6 second 0-100km/h set the benchmark against which its contemporaries were measured. The Kline design criteria for the Scuderia, simply to produce an ultralightweight exhaust system, that would produce optimum torque and power gains, and craft and perfect the ultimate phonic experience!
Here at Kline, we felt that the Factory exhaust for the 430 scuderia did not reflect the true beauty of this stunning supercar, or reach the full sonic potential of the 4.3 liter V8
Starting at the drawing board, the first aspect to be upgraded, replacing the stock catalysts for high performance 100cpsi race catalysts, thus reducing the gas drag coefficient, and improving scavenge, and ultimately torque response and peak power figures.Replacing the heavy, cumbersome factory silencer, for our harmonically tuned silencer, we were able to enrich both bass and treble frequencies, as well as significantly reducing weight. The final, and perhaps one of the most important design features, unique to Kline. Our trademark tight radius laminar flow x pipe. The resulting sound is unbelievably smooth under light driving conditions, and a howling raucous high pitched incendiary vocal when you need it.
Under low revs (valve closure) the gases are allowed to pass through a chamber, and an acoustic ceramic filled silencer, with the cross sections tuned toward reaching optimum gas velocity for achieving maximum torque. under hard load and high revs, the valves open for optimum power.
