W113 280SL question

I got a 1968 280SL
Could there be any other reason other than the (mechanical direct injection) ignition, causing the noise from the exhaust when coming of the throttle? Is it getting too much gas or too little?

Please be more descriptive. What type of noise, when does it happen, and some other conditions. You might also want to check with these guys:

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
