Modified/ sports exhausts on the S8 V8

As above, I've the AQJ engine (4.2 V8 340BHP) in my C5 S6.
Just wandered if any of you had played with your exhausts and what the results were.

Particularly I am interested to find out if modifying/removing the centre section or rear section silencers release a burble or depth of tone etc.

I am after purposeful burble, classic V8 without much drone into the car.
From what I understand that should be a non resonance absorbtion type silencer.

Be good to hear your thoughts (or exhausts)

I know you posted this weeks ago, but I got my S8 (340bhp version) decatted. Basically makes it slightly louder, slightly deeper at low rpm and idle and a little raspy at high RPM.

Overall a subtle improvement. I left in the stock boxes however. Forum Index -> Audi S8 (D2, D3 & D4) quattro
