The Ferrari F430, with its striking looks, and single plane crank V8, and 8500 rpm redline is a pure drivers machine . Here at Kline we decided to build the ultimate exhaust system for the F430. The criteria? simply to create an exhaust that achieved the best possible performance, sound and weight savings available.
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 ultra light weight Inconel 625 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 exceptionally smooth under light driving conditions, and a howling raucous high pitched incendiary vocal when you need it. Under low revs (valve closure) the gases pass through an acoustically tuned 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, and that unhindered F1 scream. Tips come in either, double skinned miter cut, or F1 grade pre preg carbon fiber.
The valves are actuated by the cars OEM vacuum system, and can be controlled by the new Kline INCONEL BUTTON wireless kit
