Not in the end, I tried 4 CDA kits, all with no joy. Im waiting on one from GSR now.

I paid 640 Euros for the exhaust inc. delivery (about £580-£590 I think!?) came from germany.

ah i know the GSR ones are "suposed" to be good. - they get good reviews on the Fiat forum.

thats not a bad price for the exhaust! deffinatly cheaper than the super sprint one! thats 2 and a 1/2 grand or something rediculas! - does the g-tech come with a cat?

Ok, thanks. What site did you buy it from? I've been looking at getting one in the future but i have only ever found the ebay shop on scorpiontuning.it.

+1 Here. Still think it's odd given the history of Abarth and the fantastic job on the audio of the 500 the GPs exhaust note is a bit of a let down.

Hey ho that kit will look awesome on.

Looks good. Is there a flexi pipe in the kit?
Title: Re: g-tech here
Post by: maccy. on April 07, 2009, 08:02:47 pm
got it from MW Motorsport in Germany

No it does not have a flexi pipe its the back box, a straight pipe and a solid 'bendy' pipe.
Iv'e never looked at how that relates to what is already on the car...

I modded some bird poo that landed on it the other day, made it into a sweeping line down the car!

im full concentrating my funds towards an Atom/Exige after the above. While its also my only car Im not going to go too far with it. (its a false economy anyway as I VERY well know!)

I think the guy that has gone for the matt black look bests me on 'change' though!

That exhaust looks sweet.  :thumb:

Standard exhaust is such a let down, looks and sound. Mr Abarth got that soo wrong!

Think that'll be my first mod. You'll have to let us know what it sounds like, bit hard to do I know

Is that a cat back system or does it replace the cat?

Cheers

Yes you should have one to be legally compliant.  However, it's only really checked at MOT time via emmissions, so some folks put the cat back at MOT time.

Comes down to emmisions doesnt it? If you will pass emmisions test without a cat then you should be fine. Will get you quite a bit more power decating it as you will get the gasses out faster.

Maccy, i look forward to seeing what results you get it you plan on getting it on a rolling road? Keep chasing peter for your GSR as he can be quite slow sometimes.

Yeah thats a pretty common time frame for them. He's a 1 man band and makes all the kits himself so if he has quite a few on order then they can cometimes back up but he will get it done :) What colour silicone did you go for?
