Here is the reply from Steve, if anyone knows the answer to his question let me know.

I do not have access to the vehicle … but when I see photos of the Ti, I notice it has only two exhaust tips, whereas the QF has four. The QF has the exhaust bypass valves, hence the reason for the four exhaust tips. As the Ti has only two tips, my first reaction is that it does not have exhaust bypass valves … but that is not necessarily 100% as it is possible it still has exhaust bypass valves … just not in the exact configuration as the QF.

When you get under the car and look up at the exhaust system, are you able to determine if there is a vacuum actuated exhaust bypass valve somewhere up there. Perhaps immediately forward of the silencer although it could be built-in to the silencer. There would be a vacuum line up there as well as the system uses vacuum to open/close the bypass valves.

If the Ti has bypass valves, then the answer is yes … the controller should work. If the car does not have they bypass valves, then, unfortunately, no.

Best regards,

Steve Bisel

The 280hp does not have bypass valves.

Looking at the installation instructions here: http://forzacomponenti.com/faqalfagiulia.html, it appears that you need to get access to the underside of the Quad. I'm guessing that this will require getting the Quad up on a lift, because clearance is so low. I'd be interested in experiences getting it on, and lessons learned!

FYI - I've purchased the part from Forza, just waiting for my Quad to show up - supposed to be here in the next 1-2 weeks!

Now just trying to plan out how to apply my severely limited car knowledge to figure out how to get it installed!

(I'm just an accountant whose car knowledge is pretty much limited to knowing where to put the gas in, although I live in Oregon, so I only have to perform such uncivilized activities when I travel out of state)

Same here. I don't work on cars...not my thing. My assessment though is it should take a shop about an hour to install so there's that cost to consider.

My bad

Anyone who purchased one of the Forza controllers probably just got an email from Steve about an error code. That was me, and I'm an idiot. The installer didn't close the hood all the way, and I guess the QV throws a handful of weird codes to let you know. I don't think it had anything to do with the controller install. I'm going to go back and have it installed on Thursday, so I'll let you guys know if everything goes well. I expect that it will. BTW, someone asked whether you need to lift the car to install this thing, and the answer is a hard yes. There's an aero shield covering the back 1/3 of the car that needs to slide off, and you'll want plenty of arm room to do so.

I'm very eager to know, if everything is working out fine.

I ordered the same exhaust controller from madness autoworks a few days ago.

Hey. How much are you getting charged to install it and who did you use?

Annona - You say the Race exhaust note is only available in R mode, but on my QV, the exhaust opens in D at about 3000 rpms under WOT (I may be a little off there, as I never really closely looked at the tach to get the exact rpm when the exhaust opens).


Does anybody else's QV do the same?
