EUROCOMPULSION HI-FLOW CROSS PIPE (124 SPIDER/ABARTH)
Introducing the HI FLOW CROSS PIPE Exhaust piece for the 124 Spider and 124 Abarth, made and designed by EUROCOMPULSION.
The biggest restriction in the 124 Abarth/124 Spider's cat back exhaust system is the factory cross pipe. The factory pipe pinches down in several spots to about 1 7/8 inches in diameter and impedes flow. Our pipe is the highest quality best performing cross pipe we could develop.
The EUROCOMPULSION Upgraded Cross Pipe was designed to increase flow and performance, while maintaining the proper pressure and flow ratios to prevent bottlenecks, restrictions, or unbalanced changes to backpressure. Performance is equal to most cat back systems on the market, and adds a smooth deep tone to the exhaust note (does not increase sound loudly or produce obnoxious noises.
Includes all mounting hardware, flanges, and comes complete with high quality Titanium heat wrap and wrap clamps to protect surrounding components. **(It's our opinion that this is important for all aftermarket cross pipes on this car. The factory wrapped their pipe in extra metal and put a heat shield between the pipe and the slave cylinder and they have a duct that blows air on it. Clearly they didn't want that slave cylinder getting too hot, plus the oil pan and transmission are nearby)**
- Handmade entirely from 304 stainless steel (including the attachment flanges and the welds)
- High Quality Hardware
- High Quality Copper reinforced outlet gasket which allows multiple re-uses.
- MADE IN THE USA
- 2.25 inches in diameter
- Pairs with the stock catalyst and mid pipe, or the Record Monza Exhaust
- Increases Power and Flow
- Smooth, Deep exhaust tone
- Includes High quality Titanium Heat Wrap (direct 1800F limits, 2800 radiant limits)
- Will not trigger CELS or DTCs of any kind. O2 sensor bung is welded in place with the correct location and distance for sensor probe placement in the exhaust flow unlike some competing exhaust pieces (which cause exhaust leak DTCs).

-Remove the metal belly pan which is held in place by 12mm bolts. Loosen the lower O2 sensor on the factory cross pipe. It's 22mm. Do not unscrew it yet, just break it free.
-Now remove the factory cross pipe. There are two nuts holding it to the downpipe/catalytic converter, two at the mid pipe, and one on a mounting bracket on the passenger side of the pipe.
-Lower it and if your car is raised up enough you can rotate the pipe to unscrew the O2 sensor. That way you avoid twisting the wires, or having to remove the wire mount on the downpipe, which is hard to get at.
-Install the new pipe, Don't forget the factory gasket at the downpipe, sometimes it falls off, it can be reused with no issues. Make sure the included copper reinforce donut is present on the new pipe at the mid pipe end.
-Install all the nuts and bolts, but DO not tighten any of them. Some jiggling is usually needed to get the small mount attached to the chassis. The mid pipe connection bolts go through the mid pipe flange with the nuts and washers on the cross pipe side.
-Note all included nuts and bolts are flanged and serrated so no lock washers are needed.
-Tighten everything up and double check proper fit by looking at the nuts at the downpipe. They should be symmetrical in terms of distance from the edge of the cross pipe (within a couple mm, just eyeball it). If not, loosen reposition slightly and tighten.
