I can't help with the part identification.

BUT,

On many cars, flexipipe breakage is often down to worn engine mounts. So, check them as well, or you might break your new pipes too...

Given that there were very few sold here (3.2 166's in the UK) in the first place Jaosn probably had more luck finding the Golden Fleece.
However ,NOT HAD TO GO THERE YET, the front pipes IIRC from eper include the cats so probably your best bet is to get equivalent new flexi pipe and cut and shunt (Whew glad I smelt that wright fur wance) if you get my drift.
Was going to do that for lacey BUTT stiull WIP after awe these years.

Butt Paul...These ur fur CF2 engines....Whole different beasties....Even ,IIRC, Lucy CF3 3.0 2001 and TIa CF3 3.2 2004 have a different set up at a quick glance. However IIRC TIa still has the under tray on.

Oh and although they do the joab...Nothing near the quality of the original Alfa pipes. IIRC Lucy's has been repaired by a guid welder who kent watt he was doing well before I got her.

Butt what was the problem?
Should have thought that they would be roughly the same as the 3.0

It also might work, just the right size and welder operator (mechanic) i think that should work! :)
When naybudy bought/was interested in my 164 pips I was gonna cut n shunt BUTT they ur to good to cut n shunt.
