Got one!!!

Well, didnt take long to find a GTV that I took a liking to. Picked it up last night, it is nice to be back in an Italian sports car. Lovely V6 note with spotless green body and cream leather interior.

Been busy on the phone all morning ordering downpipes, sports cat, middle box and tail pipe, then BMC filter and had a chat with Ken at Autodelta about the remap.

Will get some pics up when I get chance, cant wait for the postman now!

Havnt been able to locate a short shift kit for it though, anyone got any ideas?

The Alfaholics stuff is very good and well made.I have their centre box fitted but will probably get the Ragazzon backbox also,as i am not keen on the single oval exit.Will prob get the quad exit one
Which backbox did you go for?

Re: Got one!!!

Went for the twin 70mm, dont like the oval exit either otherwise I would have got the whole system from them.

Went for the conservative middle section, was going to get the unsilenced one but thought it might be a bit loud so gone for the one with the small silencer.

Re: Got one!!!

Wow that sounds great! Really pleased for you!

How much does all that exhaust kit cost and what kind of power/performance improvement can you expect?

Re: Got one!!!

Looking at about £1200 for the exhaust, dont expect much gain 5hp would be nice but hopefully it will sound MUCH better.

Yes was the one from Leeds, really nice guy, car is in great nik.
