Hey guys,

I was considering the afe muffler replacement (from twin tailpipes to single right) and wanted to ask if anyone has any dB figures of the exhaust?

Laws here are strict and the last thing I want is the police pulling me over for being too loud.

Afe doesn't have any figures...

Cheers

Damien

I don't have figures, but I do think that if you are worried about legality in terms of sound, the best way to go with with the Record Monza Exhaust. It's a factory option, thus legal everywhere, and the dual modes works quite well. I love mine, but it's not cheap.

The Record Monza was offered to me as I bought my car. The dealer would have installed it free of charge but I didn't like the sound of it. And it also weighs more. My goal is not to gain a gram of weight but more to shed it. So the aFe exhaust would have made the weight drop significantly. Also, I wanted to downgrade from dual exhaust tips (duplex) to simply 2 on the right, as all my previous cars had dual exhausts - no matter if 300 hp V12 (which deserves quad tips) of a 2.0l non turbo daily driver Volvo C30. BUT to each their own and everyone has their own taste :)

I'm running the aFe axle-back on my Classica. It's surprisingly quiet and shaves a good amount of weight. The lack of harsh sound is due to the midmount resonator, which I think the Abarth lacks (someone correct me if I'm wrong). If you want inexpensive, good sound, and great flow, it can't be beat. I put up an install vid on YT. DMR carries it, and it's available elsewhere, too. If you want bling, there are better solutions. For simplicity, though, the aFe is where it's at.
