    I installed a different exhaust configuration yesterday. Most of my friends already think I'm nuts for how loud the car was before, but now it's just a joke. A friend of mine has a FIA-GT car he races at Cal. Speedway, still not as loud as mine. Everywhere I drive people come out of their houses and office buildings to see what the hell is driving by, even though I am still two blocks away, when I finally pass them I have people clapping, screaming and all kinds of other weird reactions. I'm used to having loud F-cars, but not like this.

    I live in L.A. The Stradale before:
    LC Racing Exhaust
    LC Racing resonated test pipes.
    BMC Filters
    Challenge ram air intake
    9700 RPM ECU's

    The Stradale now:
    LC Racing Exhaust
    LC Racing non resonated test pipes
    LC Racing prototype headers
    BMC Filters
    Challenge ram air intake
    9700 RPM ECU's

    A sound clip would not do the car justice, but I will try. I had a couple of friends stand outside of my house to see how far they heard me from. We were on cell phones as the blocks grew further, 5.5 blocks was the last they heard of me.

    It's not too loud until I can hear it - that would be more like a continent and an ocean away not just 5.5 blocks

    On a more serious note did any of these things have any other noticable effect other than making your neighbours use super glue for their hair pieces?

    Oh, and I just opened the window, lovely sound your car makes :)

    The car is making some very noticeable power gains. My first CS was Scuderia, there is a nice great difference between the two.

    I'd be very interested, as I'm sure other CS owners and to be owners would be, in what each mod seemed to do, whether each was worth the change and what you think you could have done and might still do.

    That'll be another excuse for the cops to pull you over. Hopefully it quiets down a bit if you let off the gas as you pass one.

    Matt, I was wondering where you purchased the parts? I'm was thinking of doing a similar set-up on my Stradale (should have it in a month), and I'd be very interested in any specifics you could provide. Thanks in advance for an info.
