Alfa, Meserati, different class man.

Just realize you have a "Halberd"

Nice sounds!

Re: New exhaust fitted on Brera 2.2

Not sure I know what a Halberd is

Anyhow, the Regazzon really makes the car stand out. Any idea about the HP/Torque improvement?

Halberd is Maserati's logo, likely to be a fork

Ummm, mayb minor improvement, but i can't really feel it, the flat spot is still there. Replacing a rear muffler only change exhaust note i think.

Re: New exhaust fitted on Brera 2.2

I can't believe how good that Ragazzon system sounds for a 2.2 JTS Brera,it makes it sound like a V6 and even sounds better than the Bertocchi system on utube, if someone could download the Bertocchi video I think you would agree with me.My computer skills are near to useless!

This is Bertocchi's set-up on the 2.2 JTS:

Re: New exhaust fitted on Brera 2.2

That (Ragazzon) sounds gorgeous! Can't believe it's a 2.2, it has a nice raspy roar that reminds me of more cylinders. The Bertocchi stuff sounds even better but the price tag makes me faint.

Did you change just the backbox or a complete system from cats onward? I'm looking for a similar-sounding setup for my 2.0 TS and it's down to the usual suspects - CSC, Ragazzon or Supersprint.

Re: New exhaust fitted on Brera 2.2

Does anyone think the Ragazzon sounds better than the Bertocchi, have a good listen, IMO the Ragazzon has a lot more character.

Re: New exhaust fitted on Brera 2.2

I like the sound of the Bertocchi, Meatier than the original but sstill smooth and refined. Ragazzon is good too but sometimes does the motorcycle "fart" sound...

Have either of these actually increased the acceleration, either by increased power or faster rev increase? I know the Autodelta air filter allows faster rev increase...

Very nice sound off the ragazzon man. Nice colour too for the Brera.

Re: New exhaust fitted on Brera 2.2

The Bertocchi sounds like SS system on my 159 3.2Q4 but not quite as good but the Brera with the Ragazzon sounds nearly as good as SS on the Brera 3.2. But I guess it is a matter of personal taste. How much does the Bertocchi system cost?
