    ATP - Virtual Exhaust System

    I was thinking you could use a Y pipe either end of the silencer...so the valve acts as a centre silencer bypass...Therefore the gases still come out from the exhaust, but still louder on boost. Rich

    K03/K04 Eliminators...............

    When saying they are more expensive, bare in mind that they are having to pay for shipping, duty, brokerage charges, and also make a profit on top of that! Its something most tend to overlook...But you probably couldnt import it for as little as star are selling it. Also, the gift thing is a...

    Replacing the Diverter Valve

    its below the airbox at the front of the car... If you trace the inlet from airbox to turbo, you will find it. Its a PITA to get to on the A4!

    Exhausts - S3/TT/LCR

    [ QUOTE ] 2.5" is ok ,but the stock systems tend to have bottlenecks.Mine is only 2.75" [/ QUOTE ] yeah especially in the S3! The pipe under the diff to the backbox is a pancake!

    Exhausts - S3/TT/LCR

    [ QUOTE ] I know what you are saying Rich. But my view is, yes the S3/TT system may be marginally more complicated, a few more bends, a few more welds maybe, and a larger back box....but, don't see why the cost should be so much higher. And as for the CATs, 650-750 quid average price...it...

    Exhausts - S3/TT/LCR

    [ QUOTE ] cheers Rich. My personal opinion is S3/TT owners are being over charged for these items; down-pipes, cats, and to some extent back-boxes. AL [/ QUOTE ] I agree...But can also see why. The S3/TT backbox is far more complex than an A3/Golf/LCR...These ones are just straight...

    Exhausts - S3/TT/LCR

    Al, The thing is, the LCR is 2wd... To the downpipe, doesnt need to accomodate the transfer box, and at the rear, its completely different (same as A3, not S3) as its torsion beam setup, not independent. I know that the milltek sports cat, is a single cat...not a twin...This would greatly...

    Exhausts - S3/TT/LCR

    The whole system is wrong for the TT/S3>LCR as the LCR isnt 4wd, there is no transfer box .etc so D/P is different, and the rest is too...Unfortunately!
