is it one particular component that makes it sound like that?
the rear box? the headers??
I have an '82, a cousin to yours, and mine sounds very close to the movie sound. Starts with Alfa cast iron headers, into a collector ( actually a '74 setup ), a CAT bung (w/CAT!), a bog stock muffler just in front of the rear axel, then up & over to the exit cutout in the lower valance, where lives an Ansa twin tip. (see piktoor
) Not everyone is in love with this, and, I understand some weak spots: some decry the price, and some bemoan the build quality, and I agree that the muffler just behind the tups becomes non - mufflering after a not too long a time, but I consider it just a break-in issue, for once the stuff inside the muffler degenerates and is distributed along side the hi-way, the sound becomes just right [that is, just a sketch louder] and becomes very mellifluous and distictive - like an Alfa should.
Seriously, be careful to always drive the car long enough to drive all the moisture out of the exhaust system ( much like one must drive long enough to heat the moisture out of the oil ( you gots like almost 8 quarts, it takes time - but you'll be spending that time cheerfully like the movie, driving on the wrong side of road keeping an eye out for marsupials and wombats <if that was
'strailia>. Anyhoo, that's my story and i'm sticking' to it
