I have the x pipe. It is a lot less money but I agree that milltek sounds awesomeI was set on the centerline x pipe but that milltek sounds fantastic. Love their products on the VAG cars I’ve owned.
Any videos of it ? Keen to find a good exhaust for my veloceMy brother has the Milltek on his Giulia Veloce 280hp, it sounds amazingly good with open flaps, like a little QV. I think on the Quad it will sound amazing, Milltek really nailed the sound on the 2.0. Another friend of mine has on his 2.0 Giulia 200 hp the Ragazzon and it is by far not the sound my brother has with the Milltek.
not sure if you were asking me...Where did you pick up the milltek at?
That sucks about the staggering of the tips. I didn't notice that either and that would bother me too.I just had it installed on my '19 QV. I also have the "home depot valve hack" as well (valves away open).
I went with front pipe back, not cat-back. Carbon tips.
First, while I should have noticed this when ordering, the outlet pipes aren't staggered in height as with the stock setup (staggered meaning the pipes on each side are different heights), so you do kind of lose that look. It looks to be a tiny bit staggered but not very much. The hardware for the clamp of the tip is somewhat visible too because there's now an opening where the pipe normally sat. I would have preferred the staggering and feel kind of silly for not researching that.
I had it done at the dealer because I don't have a lift and I think they may have overcharged me a bit, (they took the maximum estimate for the work from the milltek site) I should have negotiated a lower upfront price. A few indy shops I checked with didn't want to touch it because of bumper removal requirement.
Very very strong burning smell first 5 minutes... thought actually there was something wrong. But it went away.
I've only got 10 minutes on it so far, but my first impression is that it's 20% louder and the tone is much deeper. Overall, I would say it moved the needle towards what I would consider to be more American V-8 in tone, but not in actual sound (this engine will never sound like an American V-8 obviously). No change in pops/bangs/crackles (whatever you want to call it) that I can see. However, maybe I'm just imagining it, but it did seem a little peppier before 3k rpm (need more time to see if that's real). I will take it up into the higher RPMs in the next couple days.
