    Thanks for the info and link,Dale.Did you get quoted a price for the Ferrari system? Most of us already have after-market exhausts by Tubi and they're around the £2k mark.

    Might be interesting to find out about manifolds as this seems to be a week spot on all 355's eventually.

    Agreed, though i seem to remember reading here that removing cats whilst changing exhaust systems will prolong manifold life.....could be wrong, mind you!

    Hi Dale

    On the old site there are many threads about the headers cracking and you then have a car that sounds like a tractor. Tubi manufacture new headers but I believe they are huge money £2500+. QV in ascot do refurbished ones for £600 I believe. Tony is right I have also seen lots of mails that taking out the cats allows the headers to run cooler and you may not see the problem.

    Hi guys,

    I can vouch for the lads at www.stainless-exhaust.com personally.
    I had a full stainless sports system made by them this summer. for my 308GTSi. Manifolds, clamps and everything, superb system and what a sound!!!!!!
    For your reference, the total cost was around £1450. I fitted the system myself which was relatively straight forward and problem free.
    Picture shows their standard of work. The owner (Don) used to have a 328 GTS but they do systems for virtually any car including one for a De-Lorean.
