This is the sport rear section, and a new Ansa center muffler also. Heck, I got $26 in new stainless bolts/nuts/washers in it, too! 馃榿 馃榿 The video link is posted below:

That Ansa looks and fits great.
I thought you were putting in a plug for Battery Tender ;)

I like your personalized license plate.
PROVA = TEST in Italian.
Handy when a cop pulls you over. "I was testing to see if ... " 馃槃

You can post the file to youtube and post the link here.
Got it! Well of course... I had done that before but it somehow escaped me. Grazie!

I have chassis stiffener envy. 馃様
Actually, if you're skilled with a MIG welder, and like to fabricate things, you can make your own chassis stiffener that fits much better, and is easier to install. It's not a shuttle launch!

It will sound a lot better after about 500 to 1000 miles. Thats when all the material inside has gone away.

I've hung at least hundred of these and the earlier twin tip.

Fits really well, nice tailpipe.

Funny, I was just under my Duetto unhooking the stinger tailpipe from the main section to drop the transmission. I remember my PO (long ago) saying he "custom built" that exhaust. Amazing it lasted all those years. Although I remember some buzzing when I stored it 10 years ago. So I've often wondered if the main muffler is stock or some straight-through box that fit.

This joint is loose - the pipe will rotate in the hole. That's likely the noise.

Your muffler sits aft of the trailing arm mount and crossbar completely. Not sure that's where this one sits.

You found the source of the buzz, alright. The hanger itself in the photo is OEM Alfa, but it looks like it was cut off and rewelded to a muffler the PO found. Notice the welded-on upturned elbow on the outlet, that's not OEM for Cisam or Ansa center mufflers. He clamped it onto the front pipe also, so what he told you was basically correct.
