Went with a Cybox in the end. It arrived a couple of hours ago. Fitting tomorrow :D

I couldn't resist the power hood despite all of the horror stories. Sure enough it happened to me but that's part of owning it, fixing it when it goes wrong. It was much easier to fix than I thought to be honest. I am dreading a hydraulics fault though. That wouldn't be fun.

Yes it's powered on those. Mrs Allandwf uses a 3.2 Brera, coupe version, as her daily and loves it. The Alfisti look down on the engine as it's GM derived and not the legendary Busso. It is still quite capable :)

I followed one at the weekend on the AROC Dales Run. They do look nice, a little more refined than the 916 but bigger all around too. It was a 2.2JTS but still had a turn of speed.

I'm still happy with the 916. Just need to get my exhaust fitted. Why is nothing simple with this car?

A bit more on the exhaust. The issue is that my twinny is a CF3 and not a CF1/CF2. The exhaust is designed to bolt on after the cat and replace the first silencer. Unfortunately in the CF3 this is a single piece so I now need to give the pipe dimensions after the silencer so that Cybox can supply me with an adaptor to bolt on. That's this mornings job.

In the meantime here's the second video from the AROC Dales trip: https://youtu.be/A3WlVqm5u7E
