It’s Tubi Style Exhaust Time with the Audi R8 GT!

Time for the big boy to let out a fierce roar.

The Audi R8 has been one of the most popular and successful models for the German automaker and helped them become a legitimate player in the super car world. After the acclaim that the R8 4.2 model received, the V-10 powered 5.2 model was unveiled. Then to top them all, Audi released the R8 GT; the sportiest version of the mid-engined super car.

The Audi R8 GT came standard with a number of OEM performance products such as forged wheels, lightweight interior accessories, engine tuning, aggressive aerodynamics, and a more efficient exhaust system with valves. The new valved exhaust system allowed for a quieter engine note under low throttle. However, when the 5.2-liter V-10 was subjected to higher loads, the valves opened up and allowed for greater exhaust gas flow and a louder note.

Tubi Style, the maker of exhaust performance products, has developed a new exhaust system for the Audi R8 GT without valves. Instead of having silencer valves restrict the noise and exhaust gas flow, the new Tubi Style exhaust system gives the 5.2-liter V-10 lower backpressure at all engine speeds for better sound and performance.

The new Tubi Style exhaust system is made from high quality, polished T304 grade stainless steel to keep weight to a minimum. With the Tubi Style exhaust system, the standard 560 horsepower, 398 lb-ft. of torque output is slightly increased, with more power coming at lower revolutions thanks to the absence of silencer valves. The exhaust system also helps improve the overall sound of the V-10 engine, and gives it a racier note at higher revolutions, while the lower engine speeds sound deeper.

As part of the Audi R8 GT Tubi Style exhaust system, new mandrel-bent outlets come standard to allow for perfect fitment with the original bumper.
