I have a 1973 spider with apparent stock exhaust system. The center muffler is making a rattling sound which I assume means it needs to be replaced. Any pearls of wisdoms on exhaust system replacement / upgrades?. I have a stock engine. Should I buy it from one of the alfa suppliers or is one from my local muffler shop ok. The performance mufflers (anza) just include the back piece and muffler.
The Magnaflow SS sytem was test fitted to my stock 74 Spider last month.
They are working on the production system as we speak.
I have pics of the system, but as it my not be indicative of the final item, I feel it would not be fair to post them at this stage.
It does look GOOD though!
Whats up with the Alfabb. parts shop? I haven't seen it up. Is it under construction? Am I just not seeing it? I am interested in buying from this store and VERY interested in the exhaust. Please keep me posted on the exhaust. Not ready for it yet, so by time its ready I should be...
Here in SC we don't have any emissions regs, or any inspections for that matter.. so depending on where you live and how you feel about sound.. but I just had both my mufflers removed and it sounds GREAT without being obtrusive.
I started by eliminating the center muffler (replacing with straight pipe) and then took it for a drive..barely any difference. So then I did the same with the rear muffler and... Bingo! Just what I wanted
Best of all was I didn't have to pay for 2 new mufflers, only the cost of the muffler guy who cut and welded my new pipes in (to my otherwise stock exhaust system - 91 Spider) - $200.00 plus $40 for a new stainless exhaust tip (looks stock just maybe .5" larger).
Sound is very livable and quiet if you don't rev it much.. but if you do, the sound can't be beat and the torque increase is noticable. Bang for the buck is unbeatable.
