Definitely more grunt. I mean you can have a mean ass sounding engine which could provoke drags and what not but you still get whipped. More grunt is always better.
I was going to post a new topic but I'll do it here. Is it possible to do your exhaust up for performance, but without the noise? Because I absolutely love the quietness of the LTD, and to have all this bloody exhaust noise would spoil it, especially out on the highway. Which reminds me, I have to plug up that bloody great big hole on my muffler...
The Goodz, yet again I'm going by passing comments people have made in the past. Apparently the high end exhaust systems can make little or no additional noise. If I could find an exhaust that was actually quieter than the standard one with no loss of power, I'd start saving today.

my girlfriends old ED which is now sadly written off was an ex cop.
The exhaust was quiet as until the revs got above 3000 then it screamed. it was awesome i loved the sound of the car opening up while i could hear the whimpering of my mate in his VL calais as i casually went on by.
now i have an ED exactly the same except not ex cop and bloody bog standard :(
Should i offer her dad a small amount of money to take it off his hands and steal the good bits to make mine go just as hard?
What is ur opinion?

I'll take a nice quiet sounding engine any day. Which is why I wanted a VL or Skyline so much. I still love the sound of say a WRX or Silvia with a 3 inch exhaust. But for every day driving I could not handle a turbo car with a big exhaust or a V8 with exhaust for that matter.
Raptor also makes a good point, sleepers are great :)
