Project: Audi S5 Custom Exhaust

A few weeks ago we were presented with the opportunity to build a custom exhaust in house for a customer who wanted a more aggressive sound from his Audi S5. Rather than get something conventional and off the shelf, we built the header back exhaust from scratch for a unique sound and look.

The entire exhaust was made from 2.5″ stainless tubing, and retained it’s dual pipe design.

Welded together with the front portion of the exhaust.

A close up of the rear half of the exhaust to show the change in direction of the piping. This was to ensure there was enough distance between the piping and the tunnel, to avoid excess heat or noise.

Staggered resonators to take out some of the infamous V8 rasp.
