Re: alfetta gtv exhaust/manifold advice....aargh!!
I was not impressed with the CSC exhaust I fitted to my Alfetta though they seem OK on the 75's I have had.
My Alfetta was always splitting pipe/silencer joints and I welded mine several times, I think that the engines move around a lot if you use the car as it should be used! With the 75 its keeping the frontpipes from being crushed thats the problem.
I have a secondhand CSC backbox on my present 75, discarded by a friend after 6 years, we fitted it with the secondhand Bosal centre pipe off my first 75 six years ago when I fitted a complete CSC system and manifold. So he got six years out of my 2 year old Bosal centre pipe and now I'm hoping for the same out of his old backbox. Its a sort of exhaust share scheme!
Hope your repair lasts this time but in my experience its best to keep a look out for cracks on an Alfetta exhaust and keep the MIG handy!
