    Selling my early, 1005, 1995 F355 Corsa Red with tan interior. Build date 1994. Car has 59,500 miles and I have owned it for 20 years. I have extensive records.

    THE 355 TO HAVE..... ( besides mine LOL!)

    I have admired this car for years.

    Why would you sell such a beautiful example of perfection?

    Good luck with your sale and I feel your pain.

    I went on YouTube to find exhaust clips of your setup and ended up being the 355th view!

    It’s an awesome setup! GLWS

    From the visual inspection alone, it would have serious problem passing. You would have to somehow convert it back to stock look to even have a chance. Then the Hyperflows have a low probability (1 in 3) of passing the tail pipes test. That can be cured by swapping back the stock cats.

    Mustang dyno 324rwhp. The smoke at the end is coming from the dyno tubing getting hot.

    Can you remind me again how the exhaust / rear bumper conversion was done?

    How it was done? I contracted Goth and asked if he could make a 430 Scud looking exhaust.Gothspeed made the exhaust and template to drill the rear bumper holes. It is like the Scud exhaust. The pipe you see in the bumper is not the real exhaust but another pipe inside thst one is the real muffler pipe. It gained 20rwhp on the dyno.

    Pretty much perfect driver 355. Personally not a fan of the exhaust exit location compared to the factory solution but car is a beauty on all other points.
