NO NO NO....the 380SL has a light alloy engine that would probably self destruct with any of your suggestions. Enjoy your car or trade to a 560SL.

well, anything that would cause more back pressure would stress the engine. You also would have to worry about fitting an aftermarket exhaust to the car. The one on my car came from Midas and even though they said it was built for the 380SL it still hangs too low, and unless you've had the engine rebuilt recently remember that it's been around 20 years since it left the factory
