    Ok...tried searching but couldnít find much here. Whatís the best deal for your money on cat back exhaust systems?? $1,000 seems crazy when you think about the materials involved.

    Get an AWE. They sound good and don't drone when cruising. Buy nice or buy twice.

    Have your local exhaust shop build you a custom setup after the downpipe in whatever o.d. You prefer.this way you can delete both the center muffler and rear muffler and add a magnaflow muffler in the place of the center. Should be around 600 and if you desire more sound get a downpipe of your choice to match to get rid of the first resonator.

    Search the forum for a "poodini exhaust". Basically it replaces the large main exhaust with a magnaflow and has a straight pipe after that. I have the parts for it myself, just waiting to be installed.

    How will you be sure an awe exhaust sounds good though? It personal opinion. Many have done the magnaflow route so itís not much different

    Tons of examples of magnaflow setups, the setup was made by poodini with pages upon pages in his thread of people loving the setup sooo. 600 for a nice dual quad output vs a 1200 exhaust off the shelf

    If you go this route, make sure to choose the non-fiberglass shitting model.

    Seriously, I pieced together a magnaflow center outlet muffler with a vibrant resonater after the cat and cutoff the stock muffler and added ECS tips. Total cost was around $400CDN. The A4 comes stock with 2.5" piping, don't need to get a fancy catback setup.

    Or do the single-out @blbroo version... IIRC he was the original creator of the setup.

    Defective products happen in every industry; I know several people who have AWE setups and none have experienced any issues. They can be had at decent prices, too... ButziGear hooked mine up.

    News flash, they're all $1000 unless you go custom.

    I think the issue is that AWE's customer service sucks.

    Yea thatís an option but thatís more of a question for op,personally I love dual outlets so thatís more for my taste.



    Op:
    U can either add cut and swap in a magnaflow, as someone mentioned we have 2.5 stock which is perfect for boost levels around 15-20 and for applications under 350hp.
    I personally would do a 3 inch cat back for future power capabilty beyond 400 and for boost applications around 20-30psi where a 2.5 would have backpressure but thatís for my personal needs
