    I'm currently working on a means of reducing the weight of the car by about 10kg (or 1.5 Stone in old money) but it's not easy, particularly now that the gym is off-limits.

    Simples. Cut the tank in half. You'll be able to to the next petrol station quicker!

    Exhaust

    The 3 in 1 group 4 exhaust and silencers from LB is great and still in my order but these original pipes were in my basket too!

    This original gr4 exhaust could give with no doubt an amazing sound with the Alfa V6.

    Obviously with no silencers/calalysers the noise level/ emissions are high and prohibited for IVA/MOT but this one could be used in some events like on this LB at Montlhery!

    I like your gr4 exhaust
    I wonder if there is a sound difference from the Dino engine and the Alfa with the same gr4 unsilenced exhaust?

    I think the Alfa engine has a much "bigger & deeper" sound than the Dino engine due to is longer stroke.
    Even with the Gp4 silencers fitted then there is a fair amount of exhaust noise, adding reprofiled cams increases this level.
    Running a 3.2 on ITB's and reprofiled cams with open pipes certainly makes the earth move (and your neighbours ornaments).
    As the revs rise and the load increases then the note sweetens and is maybe less offensive but on tickover then they are loud.
    Even with the Gp4 silencers fitted then the previous car we had on the rolling road received complaints from their neighbours which was apparently a first for them.
    I think Vince also got some complaints at Silverstone a number of years back when he fitted the straight through pipes to his car?
