[DML] Re: Advantages of Spec .01 Exhaust

I will trade exhaust note for a non-melted rear fascia anyday (if you attend DCS'12, notice how many DeLoreans have a distinctive bulge in the middle of their rear fascia, right where the exhaust system dumps into the muffler).

Plus I can rotate my engine with a simple socket wrench.

And easily change my belts.

And tension my alternator without *TWO* brackets in the way.

And jump my otterstat if necessary without burning my fingers.

With an individual muffler on each side, the engine sounds like two separate three cylinder engines sounding somewhat at odds with each other.  I don't prefer that sound at all.  There is no way to get balanced pressures between banks either, as there isn't a connection anywhere from one side to the other.  With the "normal" configuration, the two sides get "connected" within the muffler, and you get that distinctive exhaust note.  And with the DMCH muffler, which is custom made for the various Stages, the exhaust note becomes quite "european".  I really prefer that note.
