    I've searched Google and Ebay, but I can't find anywhere to buy the gasket that fits between the exhaust manifold and the downpipe on a 147 1.6 TS. Does anyone know where to get one?
  5. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi folks, This might be a daft question but here goes.. The bottom of the downpipe on my 156 v6 is well flattened where it passes near the sump at the bottom of the car. I'm wondering do they come like this from new.. or is this the result of speed bumps being taken too quickly?? :confused...

    Recently had some right rattling noises when setting off and reving gentle.......old mans a mechanic and pretty much diagnosed a scrappy heat protector on the down pipe. If anyone has one going, is breaking a car down or even knows what it would cost to replace it brand new (if available), would...
  8. Alfa 164 & 166
    I've just bought a new short downpipe for my 166 3.0 (1999) bought from YesCarParts, and had it fitted by National Tyres. They've done a few exhaust things (fitted stainless steel Ragazon centre section, Remus back box and long front downpipe) for me over the past and there's never been a...

    One of the studs that holds the front downpipe to the front pipe on my v6 has snapped off. Whats the best way to get it out? Is the stud threaded both ends or just welded to the downpipe, if it is just welded could i grind the back of it and then knock the thing out and replace with a bolt?

    gauging what sort of interest there would be in a group buy (to get the cost down) in changing that restrictive downpipe that fits from the turbo to the exhaust - to replace the cast part which is 2x 90deg bends and quite narrow.

    Hi everybody.. :) I own a 147 1.6TS and i am considering to fit a CSC manifold & downpipe to take off the pre-cats (and to fix a manifold leak problem). link Does anybody have experience on this? Does anybody know if it has special sockets for the lamda sensors? (in the picture it seems like...

    Can anyone tell me how much this should cost?? have been given a price of about 1K for the downpipe only - separate price for the cat and the manifold - please someone tell me this is a misprint:wow:

    i have a 2001 euro3 156 with cats on the downpipe from the manifold with the flexi pipe. can this be replaced with the downpipe from a euro2 pre 2001. as my cat has taken a whack and has fuc*ked the cat. also i lose 5bhp with this set up and the price for a new one is eye watering. can you get a...
  14. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi there, my car is in a standard state at the moment(156 2.4JTDm 175) and the tuning bug has hit me after 2 weeks ownership!! I've searched for info on this and can't find anything, apologies if I've missed it though. Before I get a remap and BMC CDA with a superspint exhaust & de-cat, I wanted...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    received a non-OE standard replacement downpipe today, took one look at the welds on the manifold flange and rang the company i bought it from to arrange a refund. why? because the welds were on the inside of the bloody pipe, a 7mm restriction over the total diameter at the welds thickest...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi My downpipe has been making weird noises for last month or so and I think its about to give up permanently very soon, which was no doubt not helped by my 3 figure speeds that I called on it today blasting up and down a lovely bit of prolonged dual carriageway nearby where I live. Has anyone...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
