    Andrew- Thank you for your compliment- and is a great lead-in to a thread I was thinking about starting about Timevalve.

    Thank you again for recommending the Timevalve exhaust. It not only looks more correct than a few replica mufflers I have seen-- the exhaust note is just as I remember when I bought my Dino 46 years ago in 1974. Full throated beauty.

    It installed without removing the axle and it all lined up perfectly-- a one-hour install job tops!

    As you know, I had one of the replica ANSA exhausts that Dennise McCann had produced in 1995. It was beautifully fabricated (beautiful TIG welds and pipe bends)- but it had the wrong sound. It was very very subdued.

    What I really appreciated is that Mike worked with me. Due to one of our discussions, he pulled my build off of the jig he had been using for many years for fabricating US-style ANSA replica mufflers and found the more correct US version jig that he had forgotten that he had made a few years back. It had been stored in a backroom.

    A few years ago a customer brought in a NOS US-style exhaust for Mike to copy so he could save the OEM for Concours shows while using Mike's accurate copy on the street. Mike's original jig did not put in the dip under the right axle as the original US ANSA came with.

    The previous owner of Timevalve had used a US ANSA muffler--which for some reason-- had been modified by welding in a Euro style straight tube to the front header as a pattern for his US style jig. No idea why the US-style muffler had been modified this way but it has been the jig that Timevalve has used for years.

    The only parts that Mike does not fabricate or install on his US-style muffler, are the small thin sheet metal clamshell insulator shields around the pipes going to the headers.

    I am now a big fan of Mike and Timevalve. Mike has brought my exhaust note back which is a big part of the Dino experience.

    First drive this year. Excellent Easter weather and the whole Italian family were on the road. It takes a bit of an effort to keep them all serviced and running..o_O

    Happy Easter to all. Best, Peter
