I have an ‘89 Spider S3 (RHD, injecti UK spec) and have been told by my mechanic that I need a new exhaust.
Ideally I’d like to go down the performance exhaust and air filter route as I believe the standard setup doesn’t make best use of the sweet sounding engine. Any ideas would be...
long story short: I have always assumed that the exhaust - in particular the manifold - of Giulia SS and Giulia Spider Veloce were the same.
The Alfa spare parts catalog shows the first image relating to Sprint and Spider, the second relating to the Giulia SS.
It does not...
Hope everyone is having a great evening. I have been thinking about the next project to do with the spider, I want to do some hot cams and weld in a wide band O2. But first, I need an exhaust system to work with before I get an O2 welded in.
My current exhaust is rather, uh, original or close...
I will soon be swapping a 164S 3L engine in my GTV6 and I am in need of a pair of Milano 3L Exhaust Manifolds to replace my old 2.5L ones. I am located in the San Francisco Bay Area. I can pick them up if your are near by or have them shipped to me if not.
Thanks for your...
My exhaust has gone crooked, as the hanger on the rear muffler broke.
I bought a new rubber hanger, but when I crawled under the car, I found that a steel plate was used to connect the rubber hanger to the exhaust bracket. It was this little contraption that has cracked. Without the...
So I suspect I am in the same boat as a number of you in that I am the only driver of my GTV6. Therefore I only know what it sounds like inside the car.
To fix that I borrowed a mates GoPro, mounted it on a pole on the side of a quiet country road and drove past it a bit and then...
Hi everyone. I have a 92 spider and need new rear tailpipe exhaust and the center exhaust is leaking. I found the rear exhaust no problem but having trouble locating the center exhaust. I think it is the Ansa ar1255. Does anyone know if that is correct? Is there a better/cheaper way to...
need to change the leaking exhaust manifold to head gaskets on the rear bank of my 1995 3.0 24v 164 Super.
Got new gaskets for both ends of the manifold ready but trying to find out two things before starting:
1) what needs to be undone to remove the manifold? False firewall out, etc?
I finally took the jump and bought a 1991 164S 5 speed. 121k miles, only 20 miles a week put on it the last 15 years. I drove it 2 hours home in bad holiday weekended SoCal traffic, and came up with a few questions for you knowledgeable alfa veterans.
1. Powered up huge hills at...
Friends....do you have this problem?
I have double checked all sections of the muffler (original Parts),re-torqued all the bolts, checked for leaks (none found). I continue to get a strong smell of exhaust inside the car with all the windows and top up. I went to the extreme to add a longer...
I am looking for the original 1300cc 750 cast iron exhaust manifold. I am located in Melbourne Australia however I am happy to source the part from any location.
Please let me know (PM or reply to this thread) if you can help.
A new exhaust is high on my list of things to do this spring, but has anyone heard anything like this? It happens at 1200 or so RPM. The car sounds OK on the highway, pulls great. But when at low RPM around town I hear this noise. No matter if its in gear going slow or idling at a stop...
So a large hole opened up just before the muffler the other day. Its time to replace the whole shebang. I have an early, two-piece, S2 style exhaust manifold. Its kind of rusty. How can I tell if its cracked? Are these cracks very evident, or slight?
Should I first sandblast the manifold? I...
I'm looking for either the early type exhaust manifold or headers for the Spider. It needs to be in good shape - no cracks.
Please PM me or post here with details. Looking to buy ASAP if reasonably priced (i.e. less than new, for the headers).
Hello Alfa Owners,
I Have a 1987 Spider Graduate and I am looking to replace the OEM exhaust. I have done some research and there are a lot of companies in the U.K who provide sport exhausts for Alfa Romeo brand cars. Preferably dual exhaust. I am looking to do a complete exhaust system...
Please I need the front exhaust hanger for my Alfetta, my last mechanic lost the metal piece.
Thank you very much.
Here is a pic that shows what part I'm talking about. (red highlight).
I am looking for a stock exhaust manifold for my 1976 Alfetta. I am interested in the entire system if available. The previous owner added a header that I would be willing to trade, if you are interested. The header needs work because it was welded to the exhaust.
