I am re-designing a Ferrari exhaust system with 2 objectives:
1: enhance the specific high pitch raspy sound that you expect from a small Ferrari V8.
2: achieve a good free-flow design.
There is approx 1.5m of tubing between the header and the tail pipe, where along this should I place a silencer in order to get the best raspy tone? Does this make a difference anyway?
There are 2 headers, would there be any advantage to using some sort of x-piece? and how will the use of that (and indeed the size of its x-flow port) effect the sound?
The car is an old 3.0L V8, and the factory exhaust has had it - factory replacements are not available and after market ones are ridiculous money.
The exhaust on it isn't very loud, and doesn't really do justice to the engine, as more recent cars with the same basic block sound MUCH better.
