    Hooked up with a mate today in his yellow spider that he bought last month its a 97 5.2 motronic. Looks great but what a disapointment in the performance and sound department. It seems that the last owner put on an after market QUITE exhaust, and i do mean quite, it does not even sound like a 355, more like a hair dryer on the 3rd setting. I did not know that you could get after market quite exhausts. I took a look and indeed it was not standard.
    Ofcourse this afects the power big time. I drove his and he drove mine ( a 95 2.7 mo), and he would not get out of it. He and his girl could not beleve how quite his is compared to mine.And he swears that mine had three times the power, and i agree., i could not keep with them at all. Now he wants to buy a real after market exhaust tomorrow first thing to relese that power, as well as wanting the same wing badges, mats,foot rests and 295s with spacers. Ops what have i created? I explained that even the standard exhaust sounds like Holy Hell, but no he now wants to spend a small fortune.
    So this evening when we had done he and his girl got back in there spider and put the hood up sulking, becourse they were embarased to be seen and not heard.
    Did any one know that there was an quite after market exhaust??

    Dale i have never ever heard anything like it,ever it sounds like a normal car, it has not got the distinctive 355 sound at all, what so ever. I am wondering if the last owner had it made. Mate it was sooo quite. It made the standard system sound like a tubi with straights, i swear.

    Chaa, are you sure the bypass valve's working ? Before your pal spends his cash you should try wiring open the bypass & see what happens. If the bypass isn't working my money's on a vacuum leak.
