    Hi All

    Im looking at buying a milltek exhaust and wondering how i can tell the difference between the two?

    Also is the cat built into the downpipe?

    Thanks

    There's just an Extra box Between resinated and non resinated the non res is a Straight through pipe Which is louder and the sports cat is in the down pipe mate

    Can't find the S3 one, but they have a comparison pic of the Golf systems.

    Resonated sounds a lot closer to OEM, but still loudens a bit once you're pushing on more. Non-res is deeper too, but can drone at around 2-3k revs.

    Something I noticed recently that I hadn't heard anything about before is that remapped cars sound deeper than normal, even with a standard exhaust.

    Definitely. On mine it's been very noticeable going from stock to Stage 1 and Stage 2 to 2+
