I have a 99 A4 2.8 which i had custom exhaust installed at a local shop. at first i only did a system from the middle silencer muffler to the rear exit muffler. i put a straight shot performance magnaflow muffler out the rear. at first this was nice because it was not to loud. but at higher RPM it made a nasty rattling sound from the back. i thought it could have been stopped up air from the big middle silencer causing the rattle, so today i had the middle silencer pulled off and replaced with a straight pipe. this gave the car a nice deep tone, (a little loud for my taste), but not so integra sounding. but that tin can sound at about 3 thousand RPM did not go away, it got worse! Any idea's?? im out of ideas? it only sounds nasty when i hit about 3 thousand RPM. could it be my rear exit muffler? is there anything to get rid of the nasty integra sound at higher RPM?

RedRocketA4,

I would contact the guys at AWE Tuning - they are big into Borla exhausts and have some of their own branded exhausts too (maybe made by Borla for them). Anyway, their exhausts sound great and although they do not have an exact exhaust for your car, they might be able to piece something together.

Good luck,
VB

The people at stratmosphere have done a great job in bringing exhausts for all models of Audi to us, including the V6's. This is a great site for the Milltek exhaust. (Thanks for the post Mandoh). Maybe you can get just a rear section from them and have your shop install it.

If you had the money, the whole system is the better way to go (IMHO) since all the parts are matched. Definitely worth listening to the sound clip.
