    Turn up your volume for 7,000rpm in 2nd gear (its a short straight and long throttle)!

    Yes, the addictive sound of the meaty and flexible L302 engine...

    I need new headers and exhaust as it turns out. I guess Stebro is your recommendation therefore?

    Hei, great Sound. My engine has done 6000km (3700mls) after the complete overhaul. I set the red line at 6000rpm. Temperature ist OK, oil pressure great, well synchronised carbs. All works fine. What do you think? I changed all hollow stem valves into stainless steel ones. Their weight is 18g (approx 0.5 oz) more each. Theoretically you need stronger valve springs to be sure that the valves operate fast enough at full throttle. Right? Martin.

    Stebro exhaust has gone under so you can’t get a system from them anymore.

    Yes, I would recommend Stebro but as stated right above it sound like they are no more.

    I have not studied or researched Urraco exhaust in many year and do not know what is out there. I will say this, and most of you will agree, that motor is so unique that I wish a company would spend a lot of time developing a system because the potential sounds that would come of it would be amazing. I mean, not just bend a system but really develop using an Urraco. Just my opinion.

    Here's a video from a fellow Urraco owner SkogensBaron. I have not seen anything posted by him so I hope he still has it. Not sure if he was here or on Lpower.

    I’m afraid yes MARTIN but I hope of my all risk insurance by Belmot. I will report.

    Nice color on your car

    Hei V8 Lambo. Colour is said to be unique on the Urraco. In factory records it is named "Rosso Speciale". The LP400 Countach #1120056 owned by Albert Silvera has the same colour.

    http://thoughts.onthedash.com/thoughts/countach_onthedash/

    I am interested in the outcome of the Belmot all Risk insurance. I have the same, but my engine rebuild had been a success until now...
    Is your car placed in Germany?
    Talk soon, Martin

    In the context of paint colours the word 'speciale' means 'non standard' so it is not a given that two 'rosso speciale' colours are the same. Regarding 1120056 I have myself seen 'rosso K350' written against this car and some claim that the colour was 'rosso dino'. I do think that the colour of your car is unique for an Urraco but it is probably a PPG standard colour, perhaps rosso Miura...
