Hi GTV6SA,

I have no idea, but I'd also be interested to know  :)

It used to claim an increase in horsepower on the Auto Delta description on their webpage, but it doesn't any longer.

Cheers

Someone I know who has a 159 V6 just got custom muffler deletes made up with larger chrome tips fitted.

He came on a club run a few months back and I was astounded how good it sounded. A deep sounding note with no annoying rasp.
He did mention there was a little bit of drone, but I assume that could be solved by putting in place a small hot dog resonator instead of a straight pipe.
Personally I wouldn't spend heaps of cash on brand name mufflers alone if you just want some extra sound. No real gains are to be had unless you go for a full cat back system or header back system.
Best bet would be to go down to your local exhaust shop and get them to try out different mufflers and cater it to your taste.

Hi SA,

I went to Lambros in Darlinghurst in Sydney, considered to be one of the better exhaust places, known in Italian communities for his expertise on exotics, and his recommendation to me for my 159, was that headers would be a waste of money. He said he would do away with the OEM cats and fit a straight through, legal system, with mufflers at the rear only. He said the difference would be more than just noticeable and anything extra headers might add, wouldn't be worth the expense.

cheers

Ended getting Lambros to build a SS catback exhaust system with 2 new mufflers and 4" tips, now sounds what a V6 Alfa should be with a deep low growl.
