A little treat from my little brother for Christmas - installation of my LaBree HFC and Borla catback (thanks dude!!!) Could not be happier! He took me yesterday to his friends shop brauning mororsports (http://www.brauningmotorsports.com/main.html ) They do some crazy work, never been to the real speed shop, surely, they mostly work with Japanese cars, but some very sick hp is being cranked out at their shop!!!

Anywho... They were very impressed with the quality of these components. I'm impressed with the sound, nice mellow throat, almost stock quiet on the highway and the weight difference between the stock components - oh my!!!

LaBree cat out of the box:

Now in the car:

I love the clean stock appearance of the Borla, unless you know A4, I think it would be hard to tell otherwise just by taking a quick look at it:

Its raining, kinda hard to take good pics, but, here is an attempt at the closeup:

And the side shot:

Dunno about any numbers, all I can tell I can hear my turbo, and the car feels a little more responsive. All in good prep for the next step - K04

Any difficulties with install - not really, other than the bolts of the downpipe to stock cat, rusty as shit, 1 snapped off, so downpipe was cut just above the flex elbow, and once the airbox was removed, cat and what was left of the downpipe came through the top with no issues.

P.S. I swore to myself when I bough this car that I would not do anything in terms of modifications. And so I'm weak! Thanks to you, I'm spending money on upgrades!!! [wrench]
