    Just out of curiosity, so if u can hear whistling it means air is leaking out? bcos i can hear a whistling sound and it does seem like the car is lacking a bit of power.

    The car accelerates a lot smoother and has lost it's whistle.

    So im just assuming, the whistling sound is from a leak?

    The standard Audi pipes arent the best fit hence you get oil leaking from them and the whistling sound :)

    The forge pipes have solved that issue for me ;)
