    I would be interested in this also. Just had pulley upgrade myself (revo 1+). Looking at exhaust options but don't want the dreaded drone! Looking at eibach springs and Arb upgrades.

    Scorpion is supposedly best for drone, quite a few people have said that it's completely drone free

    My non-res miltek does drone a little bit but i can easily deal with it. i was a bit disappointed with the sound from the scorpion so went miltek, it's a bit louder but still not offensively loud.

    Apparently the mid box on these does the vast majority of the silencing and most aftermarket exhausts keeps that box intact

    Has anyone done more to the exhaust bar catback.im not mechanically minded so not sure what to do lol.wgen u say charge cooler ,is that intercooler type thing or totally different.would u recommend a dual pulley set up or leave it as just the single pulley upgrade.a lot of info I read is American based so don't even know we're to go to speak to anyone reguarding this.

    If you go with Apr or revo you have to use the pulley they sell.
    The milltek is larger bore,but I cant remember the difference of the top of my head

    Exhaust wise I'm running a full custom built cat back, non Rez downpipes, xpipe, and shortened straight through rear boxes

    Very loud, huge amount of drone, very anti social :)

    Had these on mine - brilliant. You keep the resonators, so there's no drone. Traded the car before xmas and went back to standard. Got them for sale if you're interested?

    Believe you have to cut originals off? So do you use just a couple of clamps to attach. Nearly got some before Christmas as BCS had a sale but money was tight :-(

    Yes Ian - it's a matter of eyeballing where to cut from offering up the rear boxes. The bcs pipes are swaged and slide over the std exhaust piping. Then a couple of exhaust clamps and paste - job done. At first, they sounded tinny, but as they sooted up a bit, the sound deepened and improved to a meaty rasp.
    I refitted my std boxes using sleeve clamps to bridge the cut line, when I sold the S4.
    I'm based on the edge of the Cotswolds near Witney in Oxfordshire and looking for £600. Not sure how to pm, is it 'start a conversation' from within a poster's signature?
    Got more pix showing condition but I think you can tell they are mint and have been cleaned from time to time..... apologies for going a bit off topic from the OP's post.

    If you click on ianv5 in my title you can start a conversation. You are not to far away, I am in Northamptonshire. Are you in a rush to sell? I have just gone revo stage 1+. Can you definitely confirm there is no drone? I have dsg and they are renowned for drone apparently.

    Don't suppose you got a video clip of your exhaust have you ? And drive by would be fantastic as I'm looking to get an exhaust made for mine
