    Maybe if "Dave" from the local bar made an exhaust for you, but from the likes of Milltek and other well known brands you can be sure it has been tested and made with power gains in mind and not just for noise.

    If someone starts telling you you need back pressure in your exhaust system (post turbo) on Turbo or N/A cars, start to walk away.

    If they then start on standing waves and scavenging, start to run...

    There is a whole heap of misinformation out there about exhaust myths and back pressure.

    If they understand the term exhaust gas velocity in respect of exhaust diameter, listen to them.

    Leaving aside legal issues,the only way fumes will get inside the car is from a leak from the exhaust system INTO the car,which has nothing to do with the fitment or deletion of a cat.

    Let's also remember that before cats came along,there were hardly legions of us poisoned by our exhausts.

    Given some of the service / speed of updates they've been offering on other Audi forums I wouldn't get your hope up too much; I think the days are long gone where they were offering best in class service or product. I don't think I would use them again.

    Car's still with them, should be getting it back Weds/Thurs as they needed it longer than 5 days. I thought 5 days was ambitious to be honest! They've had to redesign the entire exhaust system as it's totally different to the Golf GTi. Plus it's got exhaust valves which is different. Can't wait to hear it....!

    Should be worth the wait tho!

    So they are keeping the valves in then?

    I can't wait to hear it too!!

    Definitely worth the wait.
    Yes they're keeping the exhaust valves as it will throw up too many faults if they don't with the drive select. Which means fully open in dynamic mode :-)

    I prefer the resonated way more than the non-res. The non-res just sounds too far too droney. But the resonated one does sound nice!

Im weighing it up if i do that or just go get a custom one made. As for power gains cant say sorry mate

    $100 EUR for shipping to Oz?!?! Take it and run! That's insanely cheap.

    I paid $250 EUR just to ship a Milltek downpipe last year!

    BTW, a custom made system will run you around $2k here, and I am not sure if anyone can reproduce the exhaust valves as the ones in Europe are.

    Yeah $100 EUR shipped to Australia...you reckon a custom system will get up to the $2K mark? Ill have to do some research i dont want the exhaust to throw a TD1 flag when swapped.

    Yeah around there. I paid $1300 just for a single muffler exhaust with two tips, catback only. So expect around $2k for the second muffler/tips. Add more if you want turbo back.

    There aren't many good shops around here to be honest. If you're in Sydney, I'd only recommend Hi-Tech Mufflers. They're good. Have done quite a few S3 8Ps. But I don't know if they'll be able to reproduce the exhaust flap. Not sure if they've ever done one.

    I wouldn't worry too much about TD1 flag if you change the exhaust, I think it would be pretty obvious to any half skilled mechanic it's got an aftermarket exhaust on it!!

    Yeah I've been down that road before. Ordered a set of wheels from Oettinger. Ended up getting dinged $700 to get them cleared through customs in total, as I had to also pay the customs processing fees in addition to the duty.

    It's S Tronic. The bangs are ridiculous now!
    It's had a full turbo back system, non resonated with sports cat. Milltek had it for a week and half as they had to design and build the entire system and get it type approved for selling worldwide.
    It's going on the dyno on Friday and having the Shark tuning box fitted and map tweaked for the exhaust.

    Looking forward to hearing about Scorpions efforts also, I've had a few of theirs in the past.

    Do you know what they are doing on yours?

    No it's ok when driving along on part throttle, not much different to standard. It's when you boot it there's a big difference.
    The drive select still works, in comfort mode it's pretty quiet, so valves shut. In dynamic you get the full monty with valves open!
    I've gone with black tail trims, they look evil!
