20V Exhaustive Research Results

My '91 200 TQA's exhaust started heading south last fall. I decided I'd replace it
this Spring. Without going through all of the gyrations, I thought I'd share the
results and that which I learned along the way.
On the research path, I learned the following:
Cat back system. The price for the Audi 200 20V Quattro system is: $ 778,00 and for
the Post $ 55,00. The money has to be paid in front to their Bank.
Thanks to Graydon for his information and friendly, helpful attitude.
Custom Turbo Back 3in Mandrel Bent System - about $1,500-$1,800.
Ned resells cat back exhaust systems by a German company who supplies all the major
turners. They advertise a 200 20V cat back system in all stainless:
Front 875 DM twin 60 mm pipes
Rear 895 DM twin 70 mm pipes
That makes a total of 1770 DM
Shipping on two large packages from Germany
Duty of about 3% to 5%
That's about $1,062 plus the shipping & duty. Ned also resells Stebro, see below.
Stan's Headers & Mufflers
Many thanks to Alex Neckus for his help
Down pipe back, custom, mandrel bent system that includes: two 2.5 in high flow cats,
2.5 in pipes into a joiner, 3 in pipe into a high flow muffler, eventually into a 3in
resonator which is completed by a 3in
Total cost: $813.00 installed.
Many thanks to Paul R Luevano for his wonderful Stebro install webpage.
Front High flow cat section$420.00USDea.
Center Resonator section$380.00USD
Rear muffler section$395.00
Shipping to 99203 ($20.00 ea. unit)
That's about $1,255.00
Sorry, we do not have an exhaust system for your car.
Caveat: this may not apply to your 20V
The envelope please. . .
I went with Stan's because they are in-state, and seemed to be the best value. The
system is bit throaty, with some noise and a few resonance drones at 40 - 50, but at
60 they begin to disappear and by
>=70 they are all gone. On the way back home Sunday (I-90, Seattle to Spokane) a
driver in a huge bright red 4x4 passed me - he was doing 85 - 95 depending upon the
traffic. I used his radar/laser
blotting ability to conduct some tests. Fifth gear runs from 75 to 115, are as
effortless as the third gear runs from 35 to 85 used to be, pre-exhaust. The car is
*much more responsive* everywhere, like a
totally different car. With the exception of a chip, and my BIRA brakes, the best
upgrade I've made.
Results may vary; prices change; and so forth.
