Re: help make a 2.0l sound like a man please...
Here's a ' copy and paste ' from another Thread, perhaps more applicable here, as said below, all suggestions welcome even though I may ignore them !
Finally had to repair the exhaust, it suddenly got much, much worse.
On to the lift at the local garage and the problem was easy to see, the pipe from the first box had become detached/broken where it went into the first of the three back boxes. As the condition of the rest of the system was pretty good went for a gas weld repair, did not fancy any electric welding when 40 miles away from the nearest Alfa specialist !
We reckon that this repair will probably last until MoT time next year when I can then go for perhaps a more sporty system and let the old system bear the brunt of the winter months - seems a good plan to me !
So what to go for ? The existing system seems to have far too many silencers so I think I would like to go for a more free flowing system with less boxes but without sounding too loud, a sporty crackle would be nice but nothing too obtrusive, at least not from inside the car, my boy racer ing days are long gone !
So which boxes could be replaced with straight through pipes to achieve what I want on my 2.0l twinny ? All ideas and experiences welcome.
Have you seen the Lincolnshire Lounge ? Don't stay off the radar, come on in and have a look !
