Supposedly it has to do with the odd fire nature of the engine and is meant to smooth out the idle. I don't totally understand it and it's the subject of a spirited discussion on "Biturbo Zentrum" currently.

Having been through a literally unbelievable number of "how do I jack up my car" threads on Porsche forums, I can only imagine what a "spirited" discussion looks like in the Maserati world.

Yeah, there are a number of UrS4boy's there. Lots of people stuck in their ways.

In fact the forum still uses Yahoo Discussions format - which is like hell itself.

In other news, this arrived today:

The muffler is on the way too. This should run much better now!

Don't get me wrong - he's one hell of a resource. The FAQ there is amazingly helpful. He can just be so difficult and know it all-y

Looking at that exhaust, I wonder if there's any chance it's meant to be an expansion loop? To allow for gain at the moment anchor and not affect the fitment?

After all the work you put into to it, I hope you at least got a descent price for it... Hopefully the new owner will have better luck with it. Looking forward to the B4 conversion!

I actually did pretty well money-wise. It was time to clear space.
I'll have the B4 at Carlisle next year
