on my 98 a4 i had the cat crumbled "which happens on a4's sometimes" and  
clogged the cat.. "slow/no boost" well there's no state emissions here soooo i  
just empty'd it out and installed it back. it made a huge difference with the  
1.1 bar chip and all.. im surprised your butt dyno dose not feel more? 
lol i had stock exh with the pre muffler removed, if your apr? exh still  has 
the pre muffler you might want to remove it, youll get a lil more exh noise  
but i think it sounds good, not too loud/  just right " the turbocharger  
itself acts as a muffler vs. non turbo cars" if anyone decides to gut their  cat 
search audiworld for anti foulers to avoid a CE light. obviously after you  
paid the cash and installed a high flow cat your not going to bother with  
empty'n yours though. 
imagine that! 2 posts that are not spam or software sales! 

just  thought i'd throw a quick report up on this as i've just installed it
in  the a4. well, by "just" i mean like a month of waiting for parts,  finding
just the right hardware and trying to jedimindtrick someone into  lending me
a pair of hands.

but it's in and it's REALLY nice. it's a  very well made piece, beautiful
cuts and welds. apparently they make every  one to order, they quoted me a
week, i thought 'yea, RIGHT' and it showed  up about 8 days later. no
literature, warranty note, hardware, gakets, etc  which always kind of gets
on my nerves but the automotive aftermarket has  never been so good at those

anyway it fit well, sounds  GREAT - gives my car a little more of a deep
growl to it. the apr is SO  quiet. this actually sounds like something. and
the my buttdyno is realy  impressed with th difference. throttle response is
noticably smoother, and  the car has a good bit more punch. this is the gain
i was expecting with  the apr [and stock cat] but i didn't notice anything,
which was a  DRAG.

but the cat saved the day. and it's 250$ delivered! you can't  beat that -
cheaper and better. they told me it has a 7 year warranty and  it's not
throwing any cel's. car seems happy.

for  now....
