    Exhaust on the GQ

    Login to stop seeing this advertisement

    Is there a way to get the stock exhaust sound on the GQ without swapping the exhaust? I'm having a hell of a time finding an exhaust from a regular Abarth, so I was wondering if I could just take it to a welding shop and have them fabricate something. Would it sound the same? I love the sound of the stock Abarth exhaust, and mine is too quiet.

    Are you certain a stock Abarth exhaust will bolt up? Since the GQ has a single exit exhaust, there may not be a mounting point for the passenger side hanger. You might need to look for an aftermarket 500T exhaust as a direct replacement.

    If the GQ does have a dual exhaust, then ignore this

    As there is no muffler on a stock Abarth, I would think a shop could get something close, depending on how fussy you are. All the shapes, bends, lengths, diameters and even tips come into play so the sound may technically not be identical. If you can't find a used take-off rear exhaust section, did you price the rear section of an Abarth at the dealer? There are salvage yards, too, that may have them.

    You can also look at an aftermarket Abarth rear section, too. There are sound clips here on the forum and YouTube.

    There are a few people here who are selling their stock abarth exhaust. If you can't find one right now, just wait a month or so.
    I was able to score one literally a week after buying my GQ and I got it welded on the next day.

    Good luck with the search!

    Yeah it's been tough, because I've seen a few posted, but nobody will ship them. I think I've found a guy locally so fingers crossed. Thanks everyone for your advice!!

    I have a GQ and I sold my GQ Exhaust on ebay and the issue I was having was the shipping was more than what the muffler was worth so I had to refund the money. A used abarth exhaust is worth 100-140 Dollars and that's what it generally costs to ship. I packed my muffler as tiny and safe as possible and I was quoted between $130-170.00 to ship So getting someone to ship it and pay what its worth will be hard that's why you don't see them for sale often. I tried the post office, DHL, UPS and Fed ex, They Muffler weighs 34.8 Pounds box had to be like 73 inches and 13 inches wide.

    Yeah luckily I found a semi-local one and just picked it up this weekend!

    Lucky. I had mine selling for only $60 for months and know one bought it to my Disbelief. I ended up cutting the hangers off and flattening it and folding it to fit in the recycling can. I was happy to see it go.
