    Miltek with Resonator or Without?

    Hi Guys,

    I think I have settled on a Miltek full turbo back exhaust. I have done some searching here but couldnt find a definite answer for the S3 8P. I use the car for daily driving here in Australia which includes travelling on the freeway so I dont want it to drone at 100kays per hour. Want it to be calm but deeper than stock during normal cruising and a bit of scream when i put my foot down.

    Recommendations? with or without resonator? Thanks

    I have without, it does drone a little but I all round love it. It’s hard to say what I’d recommend as I haven’t been in a car with a resonated one!

    Damn it!! thought i would hear people saying there is alot of droning etc etc, now i dont know what to do hehe. hmmm

    Also with the miltek link below

    Audi S3 2.0 T quattro 3-Door exhaust products

    Could someone tell me the difference between product no 6 and 7, apart from the tip end (I will go with the special - flat no angle)

    Also do products 6 and 7 come with the 3" dump pipe plus a 2.75" cat?

    So most of you guys went with product no7?

    Sorry for all the questions but im not in the UK so its a bit hard to call and want to make sure I order the right one.

    Hi mate.. I had a resonated milltek with a 3" blueflame down pipe in my 1.8 20v ko4 TT.. And it was very subtle at normal driving, a little deeper, but definitely not as loud as my friends S3 with non res.. Still sounded very nice when opened up tho, a nice exhaust note, that sounds a bit smoother, and not as raspy as the non res.. They both sound awesome in different ways, personal preference I guess..

    Thanks for all the great responses. I want 4 things out of this exhaust:

    1) Increase throttle response and power as I will do stage 2 reflash.
    2) No droning freeway/highway driving
    3) Dont want to wake up the neighbours at night with the thing screaming
    4) Nice note on WOT

    Will I get the above with non resonated? Thanks

    I was gonna say yes, but I think at night you will wake the neighbours with either! At dead of night they are louder than a standard exhaust by a noticeable amount.. You will get the performance gains from both, the res is a little quieter.. If you're worried about noise go for the quieter one in my opinion

    Grrrrr, cant decide, usually i make decisions easily. For night time home run i usually never rev it hard in the neighbourhood so thats ok. If both dont boom and drone on freeway then im more inclined to go the non resonated way.

    From the above I got one that says slight droning and a couple saying no droning, any more votes?

    I've got a TBE resonated Milltek with the 100 cel sport cat.

    You will not wake the neighbours with a resonated version! It's a slightly deeper noise than OEM, but as quiet as OEM when pottering about or on the motorway at 100 - 120 Km/h. On full throttle it's louder, but not by much.

    I was also paranoid about keeping things quiet, so the resonated has given me a quiet exhaust that makes the car breathe easier. Perfect!

    I'm in agreement with sesame street.. I live in the middle of nowhere so I probably notice the noise more! But no-one ever complained about my exhaust, even with all the other mods... Not noisy on tickover, but still sounds nice opened up.. Like the birdie says, with me I was more interested in performance gains, not making it louder.. Now my raptor quad is a different matter (as S3 RYE will testify to!! Lol)

    I think it's "kazakhstan miles / hour" pad.. Usually measured by asylum seekers hanging onto the underneath of a lorry.. So I'm reliably informed mate

    Now you guys stop being mean! I was trying to reply to that foreign chap with his wonky km speedo.

    I'd struggled a bit myself when he mentioned 100 kays an hour. I think it's about 345,000 leagues an hour if that helps...

    Thanks for using the kms (like the rest of the world ) u know how it is, the kangaroos we use here to ride around only come with speedos with kms on them. Note to self: activate the plan to make Australia a republic. Oh crap did I write tha hehe. Oh by the way, I was born close to tottenham in London. Go spurs!!

    Hey guys thanks for all the great responses. Really appreciated. Ok I've decided on non res version. What's a good price if u don't mind me asking.
