View Full Version : Looking to add more sound to my car "bangs" and "crackle"

02-08-2019, 04:42 PM

Does anyone know what I could do to make my 2015 RS5 "crackle" when I am downshifting? The only modifications that I have to it are AWE non-res downpipes and Capristo Cat Back exhaust. I currently do not have any tunes on the engine. Thanks for any knowledge/help.

Velocity makes a tune that includes that specific option if desired.

Velocity AP tune will do just that.

No one that I know of, except Beast, but he sold his car. Currently, VAP holds the 1/4 record for a customer car at 12.06 seconds, so itís a solid tune. Iíve heard it in person, sounds great and they claimed 29AWHP gain which seems right.

check on instagram, plenty of VAP users on there.

I highly recommend it. Solid tune, and easy to use.

I have an S5, not an RS5, but anywhoo. I have an AWE Track exhaust (stock downpipes and resonators) and it had an AWESOME snap, crackle and pop on the downshift. Then I went and installed an 034 silicone intake hose and cut the baffle out of the airbox, and for some reason I seem to have mostly lost my crackle. Never would have thought airflow had anything to do with it, or that either of these things really do anything at all other than "lookwhatIdidness", but on my car it seems related. Or, maybe I just got so used to the burble I don't hear it anymore?

Anyway, I know neither of these things is related to your RS but figured maybe I'd spark a little discussion.

Will the exhaust crackle/pop in those vids sound like that with just the velocity tune and stock sport exhaust (I have a 2013 rs5)? Or is that with an accompanying exhaust/down pipe set up?

I have the vap tune on my 13 rs5 currently. Sounds good. You ll find that the torque shutters a little mid rpm. Im looking to swap out to jhm
