Thread: S3 8V Milltek non-resonated non-valved catback

    Default S3 8V Milltek non-resonated non-valved catback

    Hi All, is that anyone in Sydney with an S3 that has fitted a non-resonated non-valved catback that I can listen to? I currently have a resonator delete with valves coded open and no other mods.

    People on the Golf R forums have fitted this and say that it pops and crackles on downshifts on their R 7 and I was hoping to get a bit more pop and crackles without remapping and losing my warranty at the moment.

    I am trying to quantify whether the extra 2.5k is worth it compared to what I have currently.

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately pops and crackles won't happen on the S3 8V with just an exhaust. The feature has to be written into the ECU file. I've tried going from res delete and open valves on the stock system, to full turbo back exhaust with racing cat and still hardly any pops. What you will get however, are louder revs and dsg farts.

    Thanks, OraQube. That's what I thought and others have confirmed that it is the tune that makes the difference.

    On the R forums, one of the members who I contacted had a massive change to pops and bangs after he changed his standard R exhaust to the Milltek. Maybe he was just lucky.

    He mentioned some changes to the 2017 Millteks catbacks and the place he ordered and fitted, Mullerhaus, also confirmed that I would get some pops and bangs! I could not google any special differences that Milltek had made in 2017.

    Anyway, I have ordered the Milltek catback non-resonated, non-valved 2 weeks ago from Mullerhaus and waiting for it to arrive and get fitted.

    I will enjoy the extra noise regardless. I might do a pop bang remap from e-tuners later but I would like to keep the car's warranty intact at the moment.

    No worries, sydneyr. Good choice on the Milltek
