    got my FI exhaust installed on the B8

    Replaced my Armytrix https://www.armytrix.com/product/audi-a4-b8-08-15 with an Fi http://www.fi-exhaust.com/product/audi/a4.html

    For anyone that heard my trix setup, it could be pretty freakin loud.. The Fi is valved similarly and the piping is VERY similar (the trix has standard flanges while the fi is slip over style or whatever they are called). The canisters themselves look very similar as well. i'm pretty sure they are both made in taiwan, maybe the manufacturer is the same but they specifications are different? The FI is resonated though, which probably helps make it quieter.

    because i'm selling the armytrix, i made quite a few videos here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...KE7PzRxK2PdD8u

    i've only had a chance to make one cell phone video at Berg of the FI here https://youtu.be/PpL_c2kXlmI

    Overall i like how quiet it is at idle with the valves shut, haven't had a chance to really get on it but i do like the polished tips better than the matte ones :) Ignore the fact i'm missing the silver diffuser... hopefully i'll have that remedy'd soon.. right @JD S4 ? :D I haven't messed with the control unit or the app yet either.

    They are both priced similarly (AKA super expensive) but so far i'm very impressed with the FI. i will say though, they didn't include hardware, gaskets or instructions so WTF? I reached out to AR_Motorwerkz he said it should have had it so apparently they just neglected to include it. Also, the exhaust literally took two months to get here and kept getting delayed :/

    I'm sure i'll have this on the car for at least another two weeks before changing my mind again...

    Thanks to Kettl at Berg for the install!

    Nice move, the armytix sounded like a diesel truck. Hopefully you were able to recoup most of the cost on it

    I liked the new exhaust tonight. Didnít hear it rip - but sounded good at idle and Cruise.

    Did my part on the diffuser!

    Need more time to shoot the shit next time.
