    2018 S5 Custom Exhaust?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Has anyone thought about the resonator delete option? Our stock exhausts sound so good, but could use a small upgrade in sound at the higher revs. I'm curious as to how the car would sound by removing the res. If anyone has tried please share.

    I ordered the Sportback but I get all my work on my current B 8.5 S5 at Boden AutoHaus in Orange County. They came out with a custom exhaust they did for a 2018 s5 cab. I was able to get from Josh. If someone can help me upload the video that'd be greatly appreciated

    I don't know to be honest. He did mention he was trying to get a similar sound to the Miltek exhaust...

    Sounds good. I tried hat on my current B8.5 and it sounded terrible so I ended up getting the AWE track exhaust. Hopefully the new motor sounds better with it

    you can unplug the valve actuators to open up the exhaust full time. this creates a louder sound in the 1-3k rpms
    easy and reversible

    So how do you unplug it? Is it underneath the vehicle or inside fuse?

    I haven't done it yet but I remember a post saying it was under the car. Put in sport mode and then disconnect the control wire and it will remain open. But, I would think you could do the same thing by breaking the circuit by pulling the right fuse when the valve is open.

    UPDATE:

    All my previous vehicles i have gone to NoyzBoyz in Toronto, they are the best in the area for custom exhaust work. I asked them to specifically make a custom catback with clamps so its easy to return to stock later without the cuts and welds.

    Appointment booked for the 23rd of January, I will post results, specs, mufflers, tips, cost etc all the details when its complete.

    What I'm thinking is doing a full cat back with two short resonators (not sure which brand, they specialize in Magnaflow) and thats it.

    Fingers crossed!
