    Love that sound. Best sounding Countach I have ever heard!

    That smoke does not look real good... rings? valves? carby tune? Nice if a Countach owner like Sir Ralph could respond?

    I haven't seen the video, but I think from descriptions it sounds like the smoke is the engine decarbonating after not revving high enough frequently. Needs an Italian tune-up, aye!

    In the first video my guess is the smoking during revs is rings, possibly, worn, stuck or cracked. It's even smoking at an idle. NOT GOOD.

    Another possibility is crankcase overpressure. Even with good rings it would blow oil.

    If it was valve guides it would emit a puff at the beggining of the rev but clear up through the rest of the range.

    In the last three videos it looks like things are working the way they are supposed to. It appears the Italian tune up works.

    Wonderful sound regardless!

    I like it.
    My friend said it sounds like a turd eating leprachaun, and that the driver should learn how to drive a stick.
