My Maserati muffler delete

Told some of you guys I'd make a video so here they are. First one is of idle on a cold start, second is revving. Honestly the videos don't give it any justice. It sounds way better in person. I'll take another of some drive-bys soon hopefully and a in car video. enjoy

What's legal in California? Nothing. Nothing is legal in California. Except hot women. They can stay legal.

yes it is legal. You only need cats on the car within the exhaust system to stay legal which I have on the car still. I only removed the mufflers. Plus when police attempt to give a exhaust is to loud ticket you argue the fact of a bike being 10x louder and they let you go every time.

I don't come around for a while and you hack up your Maserati. You sir are insane! Sounds great though, very angry. Kinda like me in the mornings!

Thanks!. Man it sounds unbelievable in person. I need to try to get some more videos. But every time I drive by anyone or downshift it sounds like full on ferrari. People look and point it's pretty funny

Yes, I think a video from inside the car would be amazing. Is that car fast? I know nothing of Maserati other than I can't afford one.

It's got a lot of torque. And once it's rolling at about 60-70 it takes off like no other. But I've put it against my BMW 0-70 and my BMW destroyed it off the line. Masi started catching up at 70 so we let off. I had my gf driving my BMW with only boosting at 5psi.

Basically if the Masi is already rolling at the speed limit I downshift and take off like people are parked. The car has 400hp/340tq. Less hp than my BMW but a crap ton of more torque.

What are the "numbers" for it? Power, torque etc from the factory? Is it a manual?

Of course you can! Sell the ZHP, the wife's Jeep, and your daughter's car. Got that done? Okay, good.

Now click here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2004-...#ht_590wt_1165

Or here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Conve...ht_24752wt_897

And looking at the ad, they have almost 400 HP at the crank, so I'm sure they're pretty peppy.
