Ah, I see what's happened. You've shopped for the unnecessary parts and gone for the inconel versions which only confer bragging rights and little else.
You'll find that the Novi back boxes add very little to the sound compared to the stock Ferrari ones. Inconel does sound slightly different to stainless but you'd be hard pushed to spot the difference in isolation. The real magic in terms of being naughty with the sound from your GTS will come from changing the catalysts. I couldn't find a US price list but here's the Euro one;



The parts you'll need are;

Sports metal catalyst for cars with OPF €5,380
Bundled with Tectronic. €890
Switchtronic €580

Total €6,850 or, at current FX rates, $7,330

I've noticed that the Novitec USD/EUR exchange rate is 1.66 compared to the real life one of 1.07. On that basis, I'd expect €6,850 to come in at $11,500 which is much more in the realms of what other posters were expecting.

Thank you, although I'm not sure how to take the comment about choosing items for bragging rights. My estimated cost was based on an introductory conversation with the Novitec NA dealer and nothing else.

My statement about choosing items for bragging rights refers to those who knowingly choose inconel for its purported benefits (which matter if you’re building jet engines or very lightweight cars, of which the 812 GTS is neither). You clearly don’t fall into that category as you had innocently priced up the inconel option. Although we now know that’s because the NA Novitec dealer has been taking advantage of your innocence to up-sell you straight away. That’s just plain cheeky laugh

Just to update this, the order was placed for a switchable Novitec stainless steel system with flaps, X-pipes and sports cats. Once it's fitted I'll upload audio.

Feeling slightly naughty this afternoon, I am looking at exhausts for the 812GTS. On Fchat there are a few search results and Novitech appears to be quite popular. Does anyone here have any recommendations or experiences? Ideally it should be switchable but it's not the end of the world if not.

Usually I'm not that keen on obnoxiousness but I'm not doing long trips in this, and it may as well be as much fun as it can be if it's to be one of the last v12's.
You thought about leaving the exhaust and trying a Forza exhaust valve overide first?

It's both cheap, and entirely reversible so leaves the car stock, and you can decide how much noise you want!

I just purchased an 812 and had this remote. While I knew it made the car louder, I had thought it was an aftermarket exhaust. Good to know!!

Is this an install at a garage or average user plug and play? Can it do anything to harm the car or be detected once removed ?
