    Cheapest sound mods?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey guys I have a b9 s4 and Iím looking to add a little more sound. Thinking about doing the resonator delete but I only heard one video of a b9 res delete (it did sound good though), debating on an intake but the awe carbon one is like $600?? Any other ideas to get more sound out of this car? By the way itís a LEASE so Iím not looking to spend $1000+ on an an exhaust or downpipe unless I can maybe get a good deal on a used one

    Most people are unplugging the flap sensors so they are always open. I heard good this about a reso delete but personally Iím looking to upgrade to an AWE exhaust. They are bolt on and in your case, you may be able to preserve the OEM exhaust and resell your aftermarket later (for a discount of course). Long term this might save you from fronting the full $1,000 knowing youíll be getting some of that money back later when you resell it. Just food for thought.

    PS, there are other more affordable intakes available, the AWE just seems to be the most stylish and has the largest gain claims (based on what I recall).

    Good luck and let us know what you decide!!

    Thanks for the tips. Unplugging the flap sensors wouldnít actually make it louder would it? Iím assuming it would just sound like itís in sport mode on shifter and dynamic mode all the time? I might end up with a res delete in the future Iíll post videos if that happens. Iíll have to find out what other intakes there are available.

    Thatís correct. It will only be as loud as Sport mode. My apologies if this wasnít helpful.
