Mind me asking what the damage was? and the contact details of the guy?

How long did it take to do?

I dont mind at all. It cost 400 and was done at ISC Racing in Elmsett near ipswich. The guy to speak to is Simon.
I dropped the car off at 10.00 and got the call at 17.00 to say it was all done.

Yes it does question the cost of a miltek when guys like Simon can play and get that sort of sound out of the system with keeping the standard boxes in place. I will leave it a while till i get used to it then have the boxes played about with i think.

Is that the centre boxes removed? Any done within the cabin?


I'm already looking at exhaust options to release some of that V10, but I don't want an drone inside, had enough of that with the RS4!

Yes, this are the middles resonators, a pair before the rear axle.
There is another pair at the front.
Removing rear ones apparently gives more effect and a great one as well.
I've done same thing and you won't know it's done inside, only when you floor it, but nothing drone alike.
And if it's not enough you always remove front ones later on.

Yeah, you will struggle to get any droning in these cars. The sound proofing is so good

To all those who have done any exhaust mods, (remove resonators)


Is remap a must after?

I wouldnt imagine it is a must - I removed my back box primarily for more V8 burble, which it did provide very successfully, but if you were fitting a performance exhaust there would be more reason to do a remap I guess
