Those are actuators. Maybe it has something to do with backpressure
The press release doesn't say anything about turbo's so it doesn't have any.
I can't tell anything from that picture..
but I can tell something from this one http://www.caranddriver.com/news/car/09q3/2010_ferrari_f450-spied/gallery/2010_ferrari_f450_28spy_photo_29_photo_15
ugh you're a one trick pony
thank you nigger
At low revs the exhaust gas goes out through the tube in the middle and at highs revs 90% of the gas is redirected to the left/right tailpipes...
Ok that's actually pretty cool then. Just a variation on the bypass valve system they've used for years.
Maybe this answers your question?...
Why oh why are they doing that for
Does this have something to do with lowering the emissions? I'm quite confused.
Ferrari and other manufacturers have been doing this to get around noise volume regulations, it allows the cars to be acceptably quiet at part throttle, but still satisfyingly loud at full throttle.
It's super easy for a mechanic to pull the valves so that they are "open" 100% of the time (thus louder at higher revs).
but don't those valves give you more torque due to backpressure for regular city driving?
Ok, thanks. I should have realized that myself
I am pretty sure you are correct there.
it has resonators like in the lexus IS-F
