Question about Abarth exhaust

Post by Codyroo »

For your RoadsterSport Fiat 124 QUAD Exhaust for ABARTH ONLY product - you have a video showing the sound of the exhaust, but with the full set up. What is the difference between the stock, US Abarth sound vs upgrading with your Quad Exhaust product (assuming no other changes made)?

I like the sound of my exhaust....from outside of the car. However, it is a bit disappointing that I can't really hear it inside the car, and it is totally lost after 2nd gear. Will this upgrade improve that sound quality?

Abarth has factory muffler and no resonator in midpipe. Thus, if add just our muffler rear quad setup you raise the sound compared to what you have. Our video on Abarth version is with no-resonator version of midpipe and the Crosspipe in addition to the Quad setup. That crosspipe raises the sound a little, but just a minor difference in volume. Thus, video is still accurate for what an Abarth owner will get, which is more volume than you have now.

the sound is fantastic with the non resonated mid pipe used in the full system, but it is loud. the sound is going tom upset your neighbors and attract the attention of your local constabulary as well. I purchased the full exhaust system, and although I love the note of the exhaust, the burbling and popping music which occurs during acceleration is a thing of beauty, but the level of sound is going to be acceptable for track and autocross use. I have ordered the resonated mid pipe to add to my system. while I am waiting for delivery, I have reinstalled the stock muffler. the installation of the system was in my opinion easy and straight forward. it took me about three hours from start to finish unassisted in my driveway with basic hand tools. I highly recommend the full exhaust. the turbo spools up quicker and seems to keep pulling a little bit longer at the top of the rpm range. the non resonated system has me driving around with a smile which I was fearful I would need to have surgically removed, but alas, I work late nights and was sure to hear the scorn of the neighbors....
