After constantly wondering when the OEM 430 headers were going to fail, even after the recall Mk.II headers were installed, I went with the Fabspeed Performance Headers and blankets. They are mated to the OEM sport exhaust. Love the sound, the increased performance and the lack of anxiety that seemed to always be in the background. Nicely engineered product.
Very happy with my excellent Fabspeed Headers

I purchased and installed the headers on my F430 myself over the Christmas holidays, and I am more than happy with the results.
The car just runs better, feels more powerful, and I think it sounds better—only slightly louder than stock.
The quality is much better than the original Ferrari exhaust manifolds, which is obvious just based on appearance. I also went with the heat insulation bags—keeps the engine compartment cooler.
I had to replace my manifolds due to cracks—and they were the “improved” MK2’s. Now that I know how much better the car runs, I’d replace if needed or not!
I’d also like to add that Travis was great to work with—knowledgeable, and got the headers to me much faster than planned.
F430 Motor Mod's: 07' 430 Spider

I just finished having a pair of Fabspeed headers installed, along with the Fabspeed carbon air boxes and BMC Filters. I retained the stock secondary cat's, as I drive the car a bunch, and did not want it to be too loud. The UCU's were also sent to EVOMS for a specific file for this motor with headers. I already had the new Tubi Evo style exhaust in the car for while (with valves)....
All I can say is WOW, the car really woke up, 2nd gear rolling , and nailing the throttle, it will light the wheels up, feels quicker then the Scud coup I owned, for sure.
It pulls VERY strong up top too, reminds me of the 430 GT car I drove at Daytona in the 24 Hour this year where the thing just never ran out of rev's and speed on the top end....really impressive for sure.
I am trying to find a 16m to do some rolling start races with just to compare, I am very curious to see where it stack's up (not literally), lol.
Thanks Fabspeed for the amazing craftsmanship of the headers and air boxes, and thanks EVOMS, as the thing just riiiippps through gears.
