HELP WITH EXHAUST SYSTEM

Post by akilljoy » Wed May 03, 2017 3:50 pm

On the stock exhaust system for my US 86' GTV6 there is a little spacer between the headers and the header back exhaust system. As I have read it is to "convert" the flange style to the from euro to american BS. Through some stuff I would rather not go into (stupidity mostly), I have managed to lose ONE of those spacers. Does anyone know where I can Purchase another one??

Thanks for your time and consideration

boy another issue eh ! It's all good, just makes you one with your Alfa.
Anyway that spacer is, I believe, to drop the "downpipes" to increase clearance for the catalytic convertor.Could be wrong, have been once or twice before :D
Suspect you're going to have to buy this spacer from a used parts vendor.There's a couple of good ones out west USA.Sorry can't recall their names - I've been lucky - reliable - recently.
Alfabb probably has a current "vendors list"

For used parts I have had good help from Larry at APE. He is in Lodi, Ca. 209-365-1383. He's a one man shop, so give him a bit to call you back. Leave a message and he'll call you.

I hope that helps,
