    Resonator delete, X-pipe Video

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I have an 18 S7 Prestige with sports exhaust. Iím going to do a resonator delete and X-pipe. Iím kind of new to the Audi thing, is there anything i need to know before having this done?

    Like will all my valves still work, etc... i love the car and just want a bit more audible feedback but donít want to deal with any problems or side effects.



    ****UPDATE*****

    So i ended up using a Magnaflow resonated X-pipe to replace the 2 resonators and i used 2 pieces of straight pipe to delete the big suitcase resonator. Overall very happy, here is a video:

    Side note: the exhaust sounds the same no matter what mode I'm in so i don't know if i have valves or what, will start a separate thread for that.

    Everything will still work.

    Front pipes replace with straight through, center suitcase replace with an x-pipe.

    All valves etc are retained on the rear mufflers.

    X-Pipe is best option.

    ^^ Agree! Had this done couple months back and the tone is however, I would like to amplify it a tad. Hoping to do so with DPís.

    Remember reading if you don't want any more cabin noise, to only replace the 'suitcase' with an X-pipe. The center resonators add a little bit of noise inside the cabin, but increase more the sound volume outside. I think I'll start with the suitcase only, which should be enough for me. But have to find the right X-pipe, and more importantly, the rigth shop. I want it done like it was factory, not the hack jobs I've seen. Hard to find such a place in my dump of a city, so will have to be during a trip to Austin, Phoenix, or such.

    Holy balls, that sounds great. Just so I understand, you put the x-pipe upstream, and went straight pipes at the suitcase? This is a somewhat non-traditional set up. Am I right? Do you have any pictures of the final setup? Regardless, I really really like the sound.
