Exhaust replacement for "D".

Dear friends

I need your advise on a exhaust replacement for "D". So far I had the original/usual ANSA exhaust. Its showing now some split of on the welded parts over time, especially at the end where the tube goes into the final silencer before the end tubes.
Its not urgent at all and my mechanic said that he could weld it for some time.
Anyway as I like to have the things proper together I thought to get better knowledge about all that and ask you about your opinion. Questions are:

1. Would you go for Ansa again because of originality ?
2. Would you go for a better (stainless steel) product or a "soundier" one ?
3. Any others thoughts which comes to your mind when choosing a exhaust system for a 365 GTB/4 ?

Very much appreciate your inputs !

I've gone for stainless Tubi silencers on the 330GTC, which have then been given the exact same look as the ANSA ones with the crackle paint. The whole of the exhaust system is fundamentally the same, so no change on sound, and it looks identical. But it rusts much less than the ANSA mufflers. They weren't all that old and already rusted through. Of course the other parts of the exhaust system are still ANSA, though.

212- I would do what Onno suggested and duplicate the OEM system in SS or buy an SS duplicate and paint it and add decals to make it look original. There are companies that specialize in repairing old exhaust systems with SS components here in the States. No sure about Europe, but I would think there are.

Thank you both. Think I will go and have a lookout for stainless steel systems then.

Thanks for the suggestions, will check straight pipes as well (and consider to put silencer on them for getting the car certified by MOT every 6 years). Do you believe that straight pipes just at the end part will be very lous (my mechanic say no as there are still 2 silencer boxes between engine and endpipe) ?

This guy is interesting as he seems VERY knowledable and has hundreds of parts for old Ferrari's on stock. From Carello lights to..you name it. And he's in Switzerland. Besides he has a F50 engine but instead of chain driven its wheel driven (as in the 333SP) a prototype from the factory.

Anyway thanks so much for helping to all of you.

Happy if I could help. Hope you guys succeed on the journey to find missing parts. The guy speaks very well english too and has a great knowledge about important details.

212- Sounds like an ideal solution with the upgraded Ansa exhaust. What wears and corrodes mild steel exhausts is short trips where the engine is still pumping water vapor into the exhaust that is not being immediately evaporated. Longer trips (or living in New Mexico with no humidity) pretty much cures that corrosion. As does replacing a lot of the mild steel components with stainless or galvanized components.

It's hard to find good guys - so I appreciate someone testing the waters as there is really nothing to be done if a seller ships would is not described.

Starting to restore the Healey again - all these places help make it enjoyful vs miserable.
