I am. I had Phase 2 without it and now have Phase 2 with pops and bangs. I have zero regrets and wouldn’t want to get a tune without it. The exhaust just rumbles more and and the pops and gurgling of the exhaust is just so fun to hear. And after a short while, you learn to control the sound a bit and it becomes sort of a game. And then every once in a while you get a surprise super loud pop that you weren’t expecting and it just puts a big smile on your face and makes you laugh.
If your exhaust is already loud and you love it, you’ll just love it even more. It doesn’t make the exhaust any louder, it just gives it some added noises that are a hell of a lot of fun.
I don't really notice any pops on the downshifts, but they sound good.
When you initiate the pops n bangs their sound is RPM based so 2nd gear at 40-50mph is going to sound like a drive by shooting whereas 4th gear at 40-50mph is going to sound like a conservative rumble.
It will be interesting to see if/when tuning impacts transmission durability. Normally, I'm a crazy - tuner guy (actually do it as a full time job), but I also respect (actually fear, if I am to be completely honest) the input shaft (s) torque limit.
Finally got all the parts installed for phase 3 and wow, def a huge power difference, much smoother power distribution, and she's loud!! My only issue is it's running soo rich. Like if I stay stationary, I don't want to breath almost. Anybody else running rich??
I def can't drive it like this, so I guess it would need a tune.....
The smell is becuse of the down pipe , yes you need the tune .....its not running rich there is just no converter , so the smells come out ......can you send an audio file id love to hear it . Im about to do mine as well
With about 40.000km on our DFI engine and quite an extensive tracking, it is more than about time to finally clean up the engine breathing capabilities and get rid of carbon build up on valves and oily IC and intake manifold.
I'd kindly ask you for your guidance. I'm in the...

Noticed on a few 4C's (mine included when new) the TCT oil stands low. After priming, there's almost no oil in the reservoir.
How to check: cold engine
Open door,ignition on. Open boot and leave it for a while. Oil lowers when priming and goes back up after a while. When oil stands on...
A while back I purchased an alfaworks ECU from alfa9supply, and installed it. Then I noticed that my car would automatically upshift even in race mode. At the time I thought it was because my TCU was not updated, and it didn't bother me enough to go try to get a TCU update from the...
