This is a funny story about Frank Amoroso.
He's not been active on this list in a while, but I had to share this
report. I exchange email with Frank from time to time and feel I owed
him a favor, for all the contributions that got ME S-car pregnant and
onto said Slippery Slope!
Frank has a beautiful Black/Black S4 RS2 _all done up_ with a Stromung
Gen 2 exhaust. Was pictured in European Car mag a while back.
Dave Forgie has the issue I am sure! Frank was really involved in the
early BOOM car days of Stromung Gen #1 and #2.
About a YEAR ago, Frank asked me to arrange a Stromung straight pipe
rear section for track purposes. I hounded Stromung a lot, Frank and I
exchanged lots of email.
And the owner (Scott) did question the sanity in making a rear pipe,
deleting the resonator and rear muffler.
After convincing Scott that Frank may indeed be crazy, that it's for
Track purposes only, I think? but just BUILD it.
and after some Colorado Mafia intimidation (uh... encouragement)
directed at Stromung to get the job
done and shipped! It did happen.
Frank took delivery of a stainless rear _tube_ to bolt to his cat-less
TEST pipe on or around March 25th.
So whattaya think happened?
Read on and enjoy!
Frank, you GOTTA take a video and audio clip of this madness!
All the best

Which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing, except that it just sounds
just awful upon start-up, idle and part-throttle acceleration (this
being said, the 17 year old Mustang owner just LOVES it).
On the flip side, it sounds KILLER / otherworldly at WOT / Full-Boost in
the upper rev range.
Anyway, I think I am going to clamp a Supertrapp on there so I can run
with some muffling to / from the track and still go un-corked at the
I gotta take some video of this thing, it is nut-so.
The up-shot is that I should be turning the heads of the Fast & Furious
