Wave Front Exhaust Pipe - 155 1.8 8v


Ive owned my 155 8v for about a month. It failed the swedish MOT (im from gothenburg..) due to too high CO and HC on 900rpm idle and 2500rpm idle. Lambda was ok, 1.02. Firstly I suspected the cat or maybee some sort of leakage at the inlet.

However, last sunday, when i was changing the front lower wishbone bushes i notised that the front pipe (in between of the exh.manifold and catalyst) probably is leaking, since I can see it has been welded some time ago, but now most of the weld looks crap, and i think ive heard a small leakage noise during idling. I think this can well be the fact to failing the MOT.

Question: Does anybody know where I can get a replacement pipe?

A new replacement Alfa original pipe costs apparently about 370...!!! in sweden. There is a company at (bandel automobiltechnik) but they only deliver within germany I can probably get a half decent example from the breakers though, but a new one would feel like a better choise (if the price is resonably that is)

Any help would be appriciated!
