Cheers mate, I do like it too. Pretty much as loud as before, but more characteristic Alfa note.

To paraphrase Clarkson, "like a rorty sorbet".

Completely forgot about putting up some pics of the excellent pipework by local exhaust shop. Apologies for the pic quality, don't do the work justice. Particularly in comparison to what was there previously. Old pipes hung about 2-3 inches below the oil pan, were dented and flat spotted along front cirve.

He completely built these from manifold down to the middle resonator. They now fit snugly roughly level with oil pan,  replaced all the rubbers and mounts etc front to back and even relocated the rear mount so it no longer sat too close to the (why have one?) tow bar bracket.

I thought your GTV was a dark grey colour. Underbody looks white to me? Exhaust looks nicely tucked in.....

Good old Pete. He does some very neat work. True petrol head imho who just ticks over doing "normal" exhaust work to pay the bills, and then enjoys the curve balls from people like us.

Just a trick of the light bt. Car is dark grey. (Though it was originally metallic cloud grey - a prior owner repainted it GMH Turbine Grey which has a hint of green in it)

Now thinking of taking the 156.to Pete to extract some more volume from the Busso.
