has anyone seen any power gains from a miltek cat back non resinated system
i asked the same question a week or so ago i chose to go for the Blueflame option as had a cracking deal with s3gav..
From what ive heard miltek are not that good any more just a house hold name with vag owners
So many stories of people with problems i.e welds cracking ive even got a friend who bought the system inc sports cat for his golf tub and couldnt even screw is lambda in as whole was incorrect..!!!!
Everyone will have differant opinions but i have noticed a slight increase on fitting my Blueflame..
+ the original system weighs a ton...!!!!
Dont think you will see any gains from this mod, the standard rear section is pretty good. the car will sound nicer though i would have thought.
Can anyone tell me how the catback non res sounds?
I had the Miltek system on my S3 for almost a year before i sold the car and its an amazing system and i miss the sound. Mine was decatted and it sounded fairly good for a 1.8T. As for fitting it was perfect, If you buy one and it doesnt fit well send it back and if the wields break it will be under warrenty...
I've only had mine 3 days but it does seem very good quality and sounds much better but I wouldn't say it's much louder than standard,
Is this the Res or Non Res system? After youve done 500 miles it will coke up and sound a little louder....Mine sounded a bit tinny when i first put it on.
Non-res mate, yeah that's what I'm expecting
Does it get louder as I realy don't want it to be too loud
Not louder as such, a little more Basey yes...But does sound very good Have you Decatted it?
Has anyone got any pics of the MillteK on car, I really would like to see how it looks, I take it that this is the Milltek exhaust your all talking about:
no power gains im afraid.....well, nobodies ever proven any and a few have proven there aren't any gains
The exhaust your looking at is for a TT,
This is the S3 Milltek
the none res sounds great when you open her up, i can only hear it when i wind passenger window down, my passengers always comment how lovely it sounds mine is a bit droney though but i have a 100 cell cat and 3" dp so maybe fine on standard dp/cat
Yep mines a non-res and sounds great, not at all loud just sounds perfect!
I'll try and get some pics of mine but tbh it looks the same as all the others... cool but doesn't draw loads of attention.... compared to the back box I had before its really quiet which suits me but has a nice burble on tick over and a deeper note when revved...
Mine is a tad different to a normal Milltek as I only have the back box... its fitted up to my 3" system and I have a 'resonator' box too... I am happy with it...
Just got mine today and the down pipe so i will let you know what i think
