Engine Suddenly Louder above 3000 rpm
Driving back from Manchester yesterday and after being a bit over over enthusiastic with the accelerator (doing around 6000 rpm in 1st until I changed to 2) my engine now seems a lot louder once I get past 3000 revs.
I've got no warning lights, no problems driving around, everything seems normal. It just seems very strange that its suddenly gotten a lot louder, barely used to hear the engine inside the car now its very noticeable. Quite a nice sound I might add.
When I first got my car a year ago it did seem quite loud then after having the cam belt and waterpump replaced roughly 6 months the engine seemed to lose a fair few decibels.
I'm not sure if this is a genuine problem or just one of those things that makes owning an Alfa so much fun. I would be interested to know if anyone else's car has done this.
Meant to add mine car is GT 2.0 with 38,000 on the clock.
