I just installed one on my 2.0 yesterday. There have been a couple other members here that have one as well. I don't have enough miles to render an opinion yet.

I am not much for drag racing, but it'll show the gains. This car is a bit under powered, so anything helps. And honestly, on Conti DWS, it puts down all of the power just fine in these crappy winter conditions from a reasonable roll.

Cool. Keep us posted. I did see some others but at least the ones I found were older 2017 posts.

How much was it including shipping?

$406.24 after currency conversion and they were kind enough to include an end cap as well at no charge. it seems they frequently have a 10% off code. I used the xmas one.

Under powered? Haha, I think I know what you are saying but didn't the Quad have the most Hp of it's class when it came out? It was fastest anyway. I think it has plenty but if you want it to do more, than yes, it's under powered.

Did you actually just call the QV underpowered?

Last I checked, a bone-stock base QV makes more power than the most highly tuned and much more expensive equivalent cars on the market.

In terms of torque, it's on par, if not a level above them all, except for the C63.

Just for reference...

A new Giulia QV could easily be had for under $65k.
Alternatively, the absolute minimum you would ever find a new C63S for is $85k (if that) or an M4 CS at just over $100k.
--That leaves A LOT of room in the budget for other mods and tuning.

My good friend's C43 Cab came with a sticker price of just over $75k and Merc wouldn't even budge on it.



I hope you aren't comparing the Giulia to anything American Muscle, cuz that's a whole different ballgame.

Haha!, That's the spirit. But we all want more power, well some of us. Me? I have not even defintely floored it yet. Not enough room around here and I didn't want to try it on my first long trip down to PA last winter. A good thing because I forgot to get it inspected after purchase and found out late on Easter. No ticket thank God.
