    That’s a solid increase in top end power, just from the manifolds?!

    Replaced the rest of the exhaust (2.25" with crush sections of 2") with 2.5" and muffler deletes.

    Swapped the square 305/35R18 to F: 295/30R18 & R: 315/30R18.

    The car is transformed with these. The overall diameter is 1" smaller than the 305 and .5" shorter than stock.
    Which results in a more responsive throttle input, ride is more firm, noticeably lower ride height while driving. Cannot wait to do some data logging.

    There is more fender gap (1.5 fingers) and the front tires are pulled inward so the sidewall bulge is flush with the fender and the shoulder is inside the fender (was shoulder flush with fender and sidewall bulge poking out). I am happy with the ride height as it is not as aggressive, but I don't have concern about the angle of the front wheels on inclines. . . which is important because the nose is significantly closer to the ground.

    New tire sizes look perfect, I really need to order some 315s for my setup after seeing this, my 285s arent nearly wide enough.

    Agreed, the new tires look great man.



    This photo.
    The nose is considerably lower than the rest of the car... going any lower would definitely see it's demise.

    Here's a video of the exhaust from outside the car:

    I managed to shut off the suspension error light after removing the adaptive suspension for coilovers. A first for the 575M.

    Uhhh. That exhaust note is glorious. Has me looking at craigslist for the cheapest V12 anything I can afford.

    I pulled the old clear bra the other day and dropped the car off to have the residue removed and a comprehensive detail, basically just shy of paint correction as I am not a fan of reducing the thickness of the clear coat. The shop isn't done with it yet, but the shop owner sent these over and I cannot wait to see the car.
