Title: A question about farts
Post by: alfagtv100 (Biggus) on December 20, 2017, 11:07:56 PM
My car has a single exhaust rear fascia, which I quite like (ok, donít judge).
My question, has anyone looked in to a single outlet exhaust upgrade?
Something which provides some additional spark and volume to the exhaust note, without excessive drone at freeway speeds.
I am looking for something which accentuates the farts and pops that accompany gear changes and some extra meat at higher revs.
Any suggestions?

A forum with a predominantly male community and nobody can advise on farts?   ;D

Well, consider that "What exhaust will make my car sound better?" is probably the male equivalent of "Does this make my bum look big?" 

You're likely to get a biased, subjective or otherwise evasive answer.  Not often does someone stand up and say "I spent $2K building a custom cat-back system and it sounds rubbish".  Also, if you're standing behind your car listening to the exhaust, you're not driving it - which kind of defeats the purpose.  :P

My standard suggestion is to buy a cat-back factory exhaust off a matching wreck, and use it to experiment with muffler deletes or swaps.  This is not the fastest or cheapest route, but the easiest to reverse if it's terrible.

Thanks for the suggestion mate.

Anyone know of any exhaust specialists in Sydney who can provide an exhaust system for the Giulia Veloce which would result in a more throatier sound and even some crackles and pops?

Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone in Sydney.
The most active suppliers or aftermarket options for the Giulia seem to be Madness Autoworks and Centreline in the US.
