I just bought a used 2010 SS A6. The guy that owned it removed the stock mufflers and I believe it is the resonator. It looks like its just straight pipes going back now. So as you can imagine, it's loud. He gave me what he had removed so i have the stock stuff. I can't really afford to by a nice catback system like I really want right now. I would really prefer to go back to the stock setup until I can. So my question is what should be a fair price for a local shop to put the stock stuff back on?
Ok, I took some shots of what he gave me. I'm wondering if how he cut the one piece(resonator I think) off is a concern? He cut it really close. I tried to get a shot of under the car from the back. Kinda hard but, hopefully it gives you an idea off whats there.
As anyone with the L99 and any kind of exhaust mod has pointed out, the afm is sounds really bad when it kicks in. With that being said, I have to assume that the stock setup is tuned so to speak to handle that. Is it the entire combination of the mufflers and resonator that help with this is is it really one or the other?
Yeah, I'm no expert but, I had a feeling that he did cut that too close. Well, I suppose an axle back would be cheaper than a catback system. I know everybody has there preference in the exhaust area. I just want something that is a little louder than stock but, my budget right now is a little tight. I guess I'll have to save up on this one.
Check around and see how much it would be to have the stock mufflers installed,I cant see it being more than $100 bucks for just that.A good muffler shop should be able to cut and weld the old mufflers or cut,expand the pipe and clamp.
