Anyone run the X Pipe mod?

On a V6T?

If so is there a bolt on solution available? Don't want anything permanent.

Do you mean on a standard exhaust?

Thought you had an aftermarket?

I did a bit of research into it as I wanted more of the V6 burble from my car like an R32, but found a few posts on the S4 forum where they said it sounded dreadful :/ which put me off so going for a custom aftermarket from pipewerx instead

Yes for my aftermarket exhaust but Im pretty sure the front part is the same as in placement etc. The car is on the ramp today again so I going to get a pic and check exactly but asking in preparation.

Here's the previous thread on it

How to get a deep growl from the 3.0T?

Let us know how you get on

Is it me or do you not have the X Pipe on that? I see the front section still has a silencer box so does the middle section?

Have a look at the product blurb for the AWE B8 3.0T Touring Exhaust. The X Pipe is right up in front of the centre muffler.

Yes it is available as the S5 rated at 245kW with all the badges etc. But there is or at least was an A5 equivalent which is a 3.0T Quattro S Line but is detuned to around 204kW. It's fairly rare. That's what I have. With 20" RS style rims and a black out package it is a fine car. Once it's out of warranty in a few months it will get a few more mods like a transmission tweak and possibly an engine tweak. May also get an intake upgrade and pulley as well but it would be largely cosmetic because the only place I could use it is on the track.

But for all intents it is an S5 just costs AU$40k less

Oh right, most X Pipes replace the front muffler and this was what I was after although not doing it now as with the S Tronic it can induce drone and I don't want to take that risk.

Hi Jamin, I'm not sure what model you have but if it is a 3.0T B8 you want to consider the AWE Touring Exhaust. It has a 180 degree out of phase drone cancellation technique that does reduce drone significantly. Although I do find that cruise control highway driving in 7th gear does require a manual change down on an incline. Manual mode for highway driving is a better option! In fact manual mode most of the time is how you make the exhaust sing! And the 107mm tips give a very pronounced visual presence! So overall extremely happy. It has transformed a very good looking but very quiet vehicle into a beast!

All fitted and sounds amazing..HOWEVER...there is the most awful drone at 70/75.

I have removed the sound actuator fuse in the hope this resolves it but not driven yet.

I do a lot of motorway miles so would be looking for one without drone. Although someone tried to break into my car early hours of this morning so probably be a while until I can afford another mod.

No a great start to the week!

Hope removing the fuse works.
