Sports exhaust for 2.4 159/Brera/ Spider - anyone fitted one?
Just wondering if anyone has fitted a performance exhaust to either a standard or remapped 2.4 JTD 159, Brera or Spider and what their experiences have been?
Any more power? How did it sound?
When I had my 1.9 GT I had a full custom system made up by JP Exhausts, removing both cats and fitting a fast flow back box. Combined with the Mangos power box and boost mod it made the car feel better to drive, with better spool up and more torque right up to the redline.
I collect my 2.4 Spider this week so I plan on a trip to St Helens for the obligatory remap, EGR and DPF bypass. As the DPF is being replaced by a straight through pipe this would seem the ideal time to also do the whole exhaust and downpipe if there are gains to be had.
Whaddaya reckon fellas? Can't find any examples of people putting performance exhausts on these cars...
Luck is the residue of opportunity and design...
