    Hooray another F40 on the forum. Move over Mercys, 360s and 355s we are taking over!

    Ok....I have calmed down now....sorry about that.

    I have no idea as far as suggestions for exhaust for a v6 I am afraid. I took out my v6 to go back in with a 4.9. I still have it btw. Where are you located? Someone has suggested to me to add those 'turbo sound' wistlers you will find on ebay for 12 bucks each since the original has turbos heck I may try it just to see how it sounds. I hope to get by for now with no mufflers just with ceramic baffle devices. As a matter of fact HTXtremes (over on Pennocks) is putting turbos on the northstar he is going to use if I recall. I plan to replace the 4.9 with a supercharged ls1 when i return from oversees in 2010.

    Anyway welcome and tell us more about your car(s) and post more picts when you get a chance. What type of mods do you have in mind???

    I personally do not look at all these posts once a day. Can we get this into the build section?
