    Yeah, got the full system, 3"downpipe, sports cat and cat back system. When i get the car back i'll put a sound clip up.

    Cat back is similar to standard, slightly deeper and most importantly doesn't boom in the cabin!

    This is cat back

    Pipewerx is local really Luke, not too far from you. Have a nip down and a quick chat with Jeff. Not seen the work by Exhaust Uk Sheffield but Pipewerx has been very realiable, i've never had to go back to get things adjusted because they've gone out of line or it's started to boom.

    Not sure whether Exhaust Uk's rear box is inline or whether it goes across the back like the milltek, i asked for Pipewerx to use the space and put the box across like the milltek, visually i think it's nicer because you don't see the rear box straight after the tailpipe

    I agree would prefer it to look more like a standard exhaust.

    RJ Tuning did mine on my A3 for me...Ł250 for catback, twin boxes so its nice and quiet (but nice when you open it up) and whatever tailpipes you want.

    Stands by his work and even lobbed an extra box in it a couple of weeks later as I wanted it to be a it quiter.

    Thinking of going 6x4 inch oval. But not sure. Think it is going to be 2.5. But open to opinion.

    thats standard diameter isn't it? milteck exhausts are 2.75 i think. i think that would be a god size to go for without it being too loud but also gaining in performance

    the fella i spoke to said 2.5 was plenty enough for up to 350bhp and that they were fitting this size to alot of scoobys and rally cars. I was just wondering what gains u get from the 3 bore on an s3 is it more for sound?

    well the 3inch bore downpipe just puts less pressure on the turbo, makes it more responsive, but then downsizing from a 3inch downpipe and decat/cat to 2.5 just seems restrictive to me, well not so much restrictive but you just want the gases out as fast and efficiently as possible ideally, there might not be any loss in performance from it, i dont know, but the same size all the way just seems logical. even with 3inch all the way, at a custom exhaust place such as exhaustsuk, they can make it as loud or quiet as you want.

    How?

    The restrictive part on the 8L S3 is the exhaust manifold and the downpipe.

    On a stage 1 map just changing the downpipe and cat and using the standard system is fine. If you go 3" from turbo back your going to have quite a loud system, if the boxes used aren't good quality the booming in the car too which will get quite annoying after a few months. The only way you can make it quieter is to reduce the pipe work to 2.75 or 2.5.

    They did say to me that they can make it as quiet or as loud as you want. What size pipe do you have sandip?

    I think mine is 2.5 luke using 2 boxes. It all depends on the boxes, i've had systems made by other custom exhaust places and the main issue for me was the annoying booming in the car when you're driving on the motorway.

    Worth while asking them how they will make it quiet using 3" pipe work

    Mine is loud(ish) outside but inside it's nice and quiet.

    Would be nice if somebody could post some pics of Exhaust Uk's work

    I visited Exhausts uk the other day and had a good look around, the work looked good and they had some nice cars in there having work done. I dont want it loud inside just louder outside like you say.
