here it is - see what you think.Anybody fitted one of these to their QV or heard one in person?
I was thinking exactly the same when i heard it, it's not even night and day different. If you compare say the stock RS4 exhaust to Miltek then yes that's what you pay money for. But I've not heard any of the aftermarket QF exhausts that make me want to sell a kidney for.Am I the only one that doesn't hear much difference? It's a bit ruder at low revs than standard but almost no difference above the 3500 valve threshold.
I have gone for the race or 'ASBO' version with the non resonated X pipe centre section. So it will be louder than the one shown in the video. I was not and never was expecting it to be a 'night and day' difference in tone over stock nor would I want it to be. I simply want a slightly higher pitched roar and louder noise which this Larini system seems to offer. Yes it's expensive but it's an expensive car so for me it's worth it.
Initially I was set on the Tubi but noticed their system uses the H pipe and does in the videos sound lower pitched and muscular which is not what I want. Larini is known for making higher pitched sounding systems not just for Alfas but also for Maseratis and Ferraris also.
Over on the US forums many have reviewed the Magnaflow X pipe upgrade alone and reported a fairly big difference over stock both in terms of volume and pitch. Referring to the latter of which most had reported the car sounded more raw/racey and almost tinny with the higher pitch produced by the X pipe.
I'm therefore hoping that with the Larini X pipe coupled with the new rear box the car will sound just about as good as it can sound !

I’m looking at purchasing the Larini ‘Club Sport’ centre pipe on its own. Does any know if there are any issues fitting this to the OEM rear muffler? I’m hoping it will be a straight swap - as is the case with the x-pipe from Magnaflow.
Larini have just emailed me confirming the fit. Going to place an order for the ‘club sport centre x-pipe’ for my Giulia Quadrifoglio next week. If anyone else is interested, let’s see if we can get a group discount!A pity we haven’t heard back....
Sure thing. I’m also tempted by the cats but I’m going to start with the centre x pipe and go from there.Make a video for us please? I'm pretty sure it will sound almost identical to the centreline one but good to know. The Larini sports cats are reasonably priced. I was put off as I wasn't sure if they would fit the OE cat back exhaust or if their centre section would fit the OE back boxes but if they confirmed the centre section fits the OE back boxes I am very tempted to go for a set of sports cats with the centre section.
I always do a resonator delete on my cars as it's an easy way to add volume, but my previous cars were V8 so that's all they needed. For me the Giulia doesn't need to just get louder, it needs a change of tone so I think I'll go with sports cars first for the tone then maybe the resonstor delete if it needs to get louder.Sure thing. I’m also tempted by the cats but I’m going to start with the centre x pipe and go from there.
