So, I've been bored and fed up with my Neuspeed catback for a couple of reasons.. mainly I'm bored of the sound, but also the thing is just a piece of crap.. when 034 was done with the work this week I had them just throw the Neuspeed system out.. which brings us to the question: what did 034 do for you?? Over the past couple of weeks, I picked up a set of Fast Intentions 2.5" downpipes for a B6 S4 (with HFC's) and a MotorKlasse 2.5" catback exhaust (also for a B6 S4) made out of titanium. Going into it, we knew that we'd have to change some flanges and add about a foot of piping between the downpipes and catback, but other than that.. things should have gone smoothly. What we learned: The flanges at the exhaust manifold/hot side of the downpipe DO need to be changed, the O2 sensors are in different places, you DO need to fab up that 1-2 foot section between DP's and catback, but other than that: it all fits.. Moral of the story: if you have a 3.2 and want downpipes, go find a good deal on some S4 downpipes in the classifieds and have them modified (much cheaper than getting custom ones made). I had the work done at 034 Motorsport and got baseline/after dyno's BUT it was 60 degrees the day we did the baseline, and 100 degrees when we did the after dyno.. So, I will be going back once it cools off and will post the dyno's when that happens.. only looking to see a few HP, so no point in running heat-soaked runs..

I'm going to be washing the car today, taking more pics/vids .. update later today or tomorrow

What made this project a complete pain in the ass for a couple of days:


^That's one of the cat's that were in the F.I. downpipes I bought.. damage is on the engine side of the cat, and there were some varying opinions on how damage like that occurs.. It set us back a day in the process, but luckily 034 stocks high flow cat's identical to the ones F.I. uses, and the downpipes seller has agreed to reimburse me for some of the $$ .. I was driving around a crappy E36 with no 1st gear, so getting my B7 back has never felt better .. it sounds so pissed off now!

Looking forward to hearing it :)

Any reason you didn't just gut the DP's? Common with Suby DP's, but don't know if its common with Audi...

Just wondering, don't know how many cats there are in an Audi system...

Subaru's come with 3 (UP,DP,Mid) so gutting and a CBE still leaves one and therefore no smell.
