    Outstanding Experience and Customer Service

    Posted by Robert Alfano on 4th Jun 2019

    I had the opportunity to bring my Aston Martin in to your facility on May 24th for the X-Pipe and High Flow intake filter install. I was immediately greeted by Sean and Jason as they were looking forward to my arrival and the opportunity to see and hear the car with the new exhaust. Jason explained the open format of the offices and gave us a tour of the shop as well as showed us every step of the manufacturing process. I wish I had half the enthusiasm and passion in my staff as you do with yours. We often receive too much feedback on what we need to improve, which keeps us successful, but its nice to hear the praises every once in a while. The car sounds amazing and you have gained a customer for life.

    Great support from Fabspeed!

    Truly thrilled to get this X-Pipe for my Aston Martin. Scott Keating from Fabspeed was a delight and stuck with me to answer my 100+ questions. On-top of that, Scott went out of his way to make the deal more cost competitive which was really appreciated. Looking forward to getting this top-quality pipe and hearing what this sounds like! I will post a review and sound clip when a receive it.

    How to make a glorious sounding engine even better.

    Posted by Anonymus on 15th Aug 2017

    I wanted to make my Vantage (2015 ) sound a bit more prominent on demand . I researched possibilities and have listened to sports rear boxes which do help but suffer a louder noise all the time as most do away with the bi modal exhaust valve . The cross pipe simply enhances the exhaust note to a delicious more crisp and slightly raucous tone whilst leaving the rear valves to be enabled when desired. Fitting is easy ; Took me about an hour and the quality of the components is superb . Top marks to Fabspeed , They do a fine job. .

    I just got it home and all I can say is WOW.

    The car pulls like never before, especially between 4-6K RPM. Sounds amazing, nothing quite like it at full throttle (especially under bridges). No perceived difference in decibels at part throttle & highway speeds below 3100 rpm. The best of both worlds.

    Nick was very helpful. Fabspeed is a first class production facility that's just 90 minutes from NYC, 30 minutes from Philly. The best performance bang for buck I say.
