    My MiTO (155 bhp, TJet) expansion tank has developed a crack above the water line, so is slowly loosing coolant and should probably be replaced soon. My mechanic has been unable to source one from Alfa Romeo due to Brexit (I kid you not, AR suspend deliveries to the UK until 'deadlines' have...

    Hi All, I have an ’01 156 V6 that I love, even more so now I’ve fitted a Wizard catback to it (massive Kudos to Dan and all at Wizard exhausts – the workmanship is top drawer). I’ve been toying with the idea of equal length downpipes, purely to make the engine note closer to the higher pitch...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello out where, at the moment my 156 SW 3.0 Swap is apart because the clutch is gone. Cause it's a CF3 car I want to delete the Manifolds. I got a Set CF2 Manifolds on the shelf. But Im unsure about the Downpipes, normally I want the real V6 sound with the EL downpipes but the car is on...

  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well, after lowering my 147 with H&R springs, left and right sides are not of equal height. There is approximately 1cm difference between them. Springs were fitted on Saturday and should have settled by now. Upper and lower wishbones were replaced on the higher side at the same time...

    HNY folks! I was looking at a cheaper alternative for the very pricey Alfatune equal length downpipes for the V6 and found these Peco ones from Larkspeed: Peco Stainless Steel Equal Length Downpipes (Pair) for Alfa Romeo - larkspeed.com Has anyone bought or tried these? If so what was the...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have had my longlife quads on the car for almost 10 years now, very happy etc. its a cat back system and does sound pretty special. However, I am aware the flexi's and cat may be dying soon and the downpipes are probably original (or at least 15 years old as I have not changed them!) and I...
  9. Alfa MiTo
    Guys and I guess mostly Puds.. Has anyone thought about doing a exhaust manifold for the Mito. Looks like the standard ones is cast log type manifold. Perfectly functional, won't crack with the heat of the turbo, but not great for flow.. I would expect you could get some really good gains with...

    Having read with interest recent exhaust fitting problems and the possible causes one of which was the length of the primaries leads me to ask the question:- "has anybody considered increasing the diameter of the shorter pipe so that it will then equal the internal volume of the longer pipe?" I...

    I have had 3 sets of led sidelight bulbs in my car over the last 3 years. A year a set isn't up to much really. The last set looked like this They were UK sourced canbus LED bulbs. eBay jobs like these http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/261447058793?nav=SEARCHbut worked okay until recently getting a...

    Guys, I have decided not to fit the Gotcha Equal Length Downpipes and CF2 Manifolds. I will keep the cats and just use the car as it is. I don't drive it hard and won't benefit from the additional power on the road. I'm happy with the 260BHP as it is. Therefore I am selling Both the EQL Pipes...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Whilst pulling out of a junction last night on the way home, I heard a rather nasty rasping sound when accelerating :cry:. So with a previous repair to one of the flexi pipes, has just failed I thought, so now, there is no reason, not to have some nice shiny equal length downpipes made :D. So...
  15. Alfa GTA
    So, I (finally) got my de cat manifolds and equal length downpipes installed. Question is: Do mine sound as yours ? Mine develop a heavy rasp / resonating sound from about 2000 RPM upwards that seems to die off at about 4000 RPM. Is that normal ? I had thought that the rasp sound would not come...

    howdy folks, been scouring the forum and the net in general for the last 2 hours looking at info on stainless front pipes. basically my standard one's developed a rather annoying blow. already have the de-cat and cat back stainless so the logical step is stainless. problem is i cant seem to...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've noticed that some days when I drive my 159 2.4JTDm the engine sound quite 'rough'. It's not uneven, it's just a noisier kind of engine sound - a few more nails than usual. Engine temperature makes little difference; i.e. when the car warms up it still sounds like the car does when it's...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm having equal pipes and decat manifolds added to my v6 spider on Friday. I currently have a ragazzon centre pipe and quad exit. I also have the lightened 156 clutch mod. I have a centre decat pipe in my garage. (should I fit this? I will be catless) What power increase should I feel with...

    I'm after equal length and bore downpipes for a phase 3 3 litre spider. Currently the only options are pretty expensive I think. I'm a mechanical engineer, I work with 3d CAD modelling and the company I work for own a 3d laser scanner. If I remove my pipes I can scan them, obtain the geometry...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
