About two minutes after starting the engine, the "wap-wap-wap" would completely stop (and the exhaust would sound great)... but it was SO bad during those first two minutes that the muffler had to be changed.

I agree, the stainless ocelot sounds very similar to the stock exhaust.

But to each his own I guess.

FWIW, I have run the regular (not stainless) Ocelot system on several of my cars. All 88s.
As others have mentioned, I found that it sounded very much like the stock system, except a bit louder.
Mine never rusted, but then I live in the south, where the roads are not salted.

Any good exhaust shop, particularly a race car exhaust shop, should be able to fabricate a complete Fiero exhaust system and if you have mods, even use larger diameter pipes . There are a couple of shops in my area that do such work and I know a few guys that have these systems.
