    Audi a4 1.8t exhaust

    Hi can anyone help, ive had the above car for 4 months now, but on start up it sounds like the exhaust has fallen off , till it warms up slightly then it sounds ok , i know the old owner had the cat taken out and all the exhaust welded up ,so id be looking at changing the lot ? Whats the best system and a rough price would be cool

    This is the car in question ,also its 5 speed . i dont know much about audis only that i dont see many like this one






    Id even be happy with a standard system

    I'd get rid while you can... sounds terminal.

    I'll let you hand it over to me for a small fee...!

    Could be the cam chain tensioner needing replacing. The wife's TT has a similar problem. It's on the list of things to do...

    You might get more joy in the section for your car, is that a B7?

    Take it into kwikfit. They can do a free exhaust and brake check, you just give them an hour. See if you can hang around while theyre doing it (they usually dont mind) and you can spot if the exhaust is blowing or something. They will come at you with a quote and a list of things you "want to replace" but you can just ignore it and drive home. They have the benefits of getting it up on ramps and having a good look, and you can just drive in without making an appointment.

    They also will give you a print out showing all your tyre treads, brake thicknesses and exhaust condition. Good for the history and you know where you stand with a new car without even getting mucky.

    It's fitted with a Votex kit, they're fairly unusual but not massively so.

    The Kwik Fit shout is a good one, to get the exhaust health checked, and go from there. Whatever you do you need to end up with 100mm tips welded onto the back box, as anything less looks lost in the rear Votex exhaust openings.

    SNAP !! Welcome to the Votex club.


    Good luck with Exhaust, I am sure everyone will have different opinions. I went to Longlife with a previous car I owned and they did an awesome job, but they are franchises so can vary place to place. I went here:

    The old owner said it was mapped to 300bhp but the car wouldnt run correct , so he took it back to audi and they dropped it to 250bhp , i dont beleve the guy tbh. it has a new intercooler below the front plate hidden behind the bumper which he said was off a s3

    Sound like the guy was full of it because no K03 turbo on a A4 could be mapped to 300bhp let alone 250bhp, bet bet if it's chipped at all is around 215-220bhp.

    I run a Milltek with a 034 sport CAT, CAT give me 12bhp on its own.

    Meerkat exhausts did mine a few months ago - great job and fantastic sound. only prob is they are not around the corner from you, unless you are on a wee holiday in scotland!! lol i paid 230 i think - from down-pipe back & kept the back boxes as they were ok - just replaced the trims at the same time.
    wish i'd bought a beemer now....

    Im not to sure if it has the standard turbo on the car, its a fast car as before i had a audi s3 and it would wipe the floor with that . thanks for all the info
