Does Proalfa or Ahm do turboback exhausts?

Getting a GQV at some point and wanted to know whether they do these types of exhaust resonated and what price to expect all in.

ProAlfa do a turbo back exhaust, i'm not sure how much that alone would be as i had other work done at the same time. heres there website for contact details as it really depends on what you want (more silencers, sports cat etc)

Cheers mate. Do you have a new clutch or intercooler considering the bhp and heat increases of your car

nope, both standard.looking at doing the intercooler at some point but cant really afford it at the moment. the heat increase is only really when the boost was higher, it was pulled back so id say now it wasn't any hotter than before

Go with the ProAlfa guys...they do the complete thing, from ECu remap to catless turboback to intake...then...while you are there let them measure up the space for a new custom intercooler...with the GQV you don't really need over 300bhp...things will go wrong, like clutch 1st and then lots of heat so the ECU will step in and cut boost/timing and you'll start getting errors.

Here's what I'd say you must do, budget depending of course, as it seems you are very excited! lol...

Pro Alfa Tune, try and get in touch with LJ and go for a spin...to see if the power is up to your standard(coming from a Clio)

Get the exhaust and the intake from ProAlfa.
Get them to mock up an intercooler...this will help drop pressure and drop temps...keep the boost at 1.5-1.6 overboost...don't go over. Always remember to put in Selenia Sport Power oil, especially when your car is tuned do it every 5-10000km.

Enjoy!

301bhp (on standard fuel) and i think (cant remember fully but its somewhere in the thread in the Giulietta section) it was 1.4 or 1.6 bar

it is so far its been quicker than a focus RS (new shape) subaru's, an evo 10, a couple of good mates have got Cayman S's and its quicker than those in a straight line too so its got the performance now which it shouldve had from the factory

Oh my god what else have you done to it. Just a remap and turbo back exhaust. I understand you also have launch control mapped in somehow

turboback exhaust, it pops and crackles and can get flames too air intake, remap and thats it. Fred worked his magic and borrowed my car, done some computery stuff and said try this and that was it, launch control say yu are at traffic lights.....just put the clutch down, hold your foot on the accelerator and when you want to go let the clutch back up and it goes i have hardly ever used it but when i have it surprises people

Lucky boy. And all that for under 2k wasnt it. Did you have to buy all the parts or did the guys from pro alfa sort it. Oh yeah. I though you got them to downscale the remap from 301 to 28something
