    RS5 exhaust modification?

    Hi guys,

    I'm not happy with the sound from the rs5 exhaust, I have already disconnected the exhaust flap so it is open all the time but its still extremely quiet, so looking at options to fix that without buying a full exhaust.

    My initial thoughts were to maybe remove the centre muffler and replace with some straight through pipes as you can see in the attached pics, that way i could plug the exhaust flap back in if i wanted aswell.

    Any assistance\ideas would be appreciated, thanks Craig.

    take a capristo system with valve control and you will have a better sound and a real flap control system. or another option is HMS which is a brillant soud + xpipe....

    I have installed tje capristo on mine, already a great sound. now I will install the HMS as it sounds even better (but maybe a bit much for some guys).

    enjoy here:

    and pleae do invest in something other than a adaptation of OEM. I think that if you were able to buy the RS5 you can pay for the exhsust system right ?

    There isn't any local places doing modifications for the RS5 here as yet.

    I cant find costs for the HMS but for example, a 4000 exhaust is nearly $5500 AUD before shipping and fitting costs, so it adds up pretty quick.

    I was hoping to get some noise from the OEM exhaust until there is a better option.

    The list prices of the HMS exhzust for the RS5 is as follows:


    1) Exhaust system Audi RS5:
    2.528,54 Euro


    2) X-Pipe Audi RS5:
    285,36 Euro


    Prices are excluding VAT and shipping.

    You could perfectly only change the Xpipe, this will increase the sound and increase some performance as well at the same time at little cost.

    If you want the real thing then you need to go to change both:

    its fabulour sound.... I'll get it installed on my RS5 next monday...

    They look like good options, thanks for the info.

    If you could update us when you have had it fitted that would be great.

    We are expecting some sound clips

    Does X-Pipe from RS5 fit to Audi S5 with milltek exhaust or they are also producing S5 exhausts? Any pics of that X-pipe? Also if you know is it alot of drone with that exhaust?

    Kind Regards

    I am out of time since leaving on vacation tomorrow at 4am... and running since this week-end to get all done.... exhaust is pretty loud (louder than capristo) but brillant sound...no equivalent on the market for sure....

    When cruising valve closed 3000rpm no issues its confortable. when valver open and goign into rpms..... wowww you feel this is race car hyou are drving almost..... love it... easy to install 2 hours 30 minutes and we remioved the capristo and placed the HMS.

    I ended up getting the center muffler taken out and 2 straight pipes put in, worked out very well.

    Sounds great, its louder significantly under throttle and the gear change pops and rev matching are awesome. still quiet though when cruising say at 100km's.

    Thx for responce. I wrote to Akrapovic company about exhaust system to RS5 and they told me: "It is on the wish list for 2012. Wait for confirmation...". I'll wait for news and after that i decide what to buy, Akrapovic or HMS. . When do you have a trip to Czech Republic with RS5 (HMS) get me know, i'll take you to coffee :P, i really want to see HMS live.

    I have proposed three times to Akrapovic (I sell them as well) to haev mly RS5 for a coupe of month to make the developement ans they told me they were not interested as the RS5 is no interste for them...

    To hear the HMS is very easy the official video is reflectign 100% the real sound... if you like what you hear you will be very happy of HMS. don't wait for akrapovic.... you will be dead before they react.... they do like 3/4 cars per year only.... pffffffffffff
