    Decated and no resonated Blueflame exhaust for Audi S3 (video inside)

    As I promised a few weeks ago I have uploaded a small video of my S3 with the new exhaust settings. Before I had a decated & resonated and now is decated an no resonated. With this set up the car is extremely loud and inside you can feel some drone...an inconvenient for long trips but nevertheless is a lovely noise when you want to enjoy driving along twisty roads. I wasn't expecting such a huge difference between both settings, I think that the intermediate silencer is much more restrictive than the last one.


    Here is the vid.

    Oh! the first vid makes it look white so thought 2 different cars! Preferred it resonated then :-) Didnt think it would be so loud with the non resonated one.

    I had a turbo back decat milltek on my turbo beetle and it was reasonabley quiet compared to that!

    The decat has a nice rasp to it and would sound good on a track but the resonated one would get my vote for daily use.

    Good post though, cheers

    As far as I am with the OEM map, with the exhaust I have notices less turbo-lag (quicker response then) and more strength in the low revs as well as nice pushing until 7000rpm (much better than with the OEM exhaust)
