Oval eh?  
Now that will rattle Scott Taylor's noodle.
Yer' right about Ground clearance.  should not let it drop any more.
And Sir Paul K.
Bravo! applause..  or should I say Brah-vOh! for your reply to day.

That's right, I recall last year, Paul, Ray, Pizzo chasing each other -> Stebro on point, followed by Stromung, then Stromung on point chasing Stebro. With the auditioners head and ears out the window in some kind of crazed audio test only a gear head would enjoy!

Nope, didn't let me down a bit. Gotta admit, I didn't go that far and should.

Want to advance SOTA? Think of going to an oval to get the flow while
keeping your ground clearance. I do like my Stromung, but can't see giving
up any more clearance.

Thanks for the favorable reply Emre from your buddy. He works at Shokan, and
raves about the system.
And his father does in fact own an S6 with 12K miles on it!

Let me qualify my rant yesterday. I was a bit bolt with my claims.

Stromung is _really_ great for MTM Stage 1 , IA Stage III, and RS2 type
I think it complements the car really well, adds to the performance
envelope,  and is not annoying at all.
(Of course, I am half deaf too!)

As Trevor points out though, (circa 4/2/04) you really should tune the
chipset WITH the Stromung in place, to be on target for mxture settings.

Beyond that, in the territory of HAP, MIkeP, Cody, Trevor, Brian B, Bob
Pastore and many others,
I think even the Stromung RSS would be insufficient.

One guy I exchanged email with in Chicago, was talking about a tubular EM,
and custom DP to mate to the Stromung section #2, and #3.   Then I read last
week on the 20V Kruemmer list, a tubular already exists.

FWIW, for high end territroy, Stromung would be interested in advancing the

You guys can all rant about your Stebros (Bill), or just stay in denial
(Paul), but no ones exhaust sets of parked cars alarm systems like my
Scorpion :-(
3" turbo back with no mid-muffler can make a LOUD system. At full boost, it
would put any Rice Boys fart can to shame :-\
Luckily, I was offered a used Stromung, by our Stromungmeister, Jeff
Postupack (Jeff, I can't wait to pick it up!).
When I told my friend that the latest Stromung GB was coming to a close, he
contacted Jeff and bought 2 of the last 3 exhausts that were available, one
for his 92 S4, and the other for his fathers sweet 12k mile (not a typo!) 95
S6. Thank god his brother-in-law is going to buy my Scorpion ;-)
My buddy recently installed the system, and let me tell you, the latest
production run is so QUIET for a 3" system! You hear the turbo spool and
motor rev over the tiny note put out of the tail pipe, just enough to let
you know its still there.

Stromung is the way to go fellas!

92 S4
