Attached below is some info I saved from a previous post a couple years ago.
May be of some help. I need to replace my rear muffler next spring also.
91 200 TQA
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
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
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
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 chrome tip.
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.
