1) Remove the trailor hitch brace in the back and you can get a lighter aftermarket skid plate for the front. Also, A stainless aftermarket catback will be lighter than stock.
3) No as long as you do it from the mid section at the flanges. You are not going to like that with the thunder being right under you. Some do that but they straight pipe it all the way back.04/A4 Quicksilver

The stripe is the first time I saw that. Yes the trunk has alot of extra weight. Don't do the straight pipe thing!!! IT SOUNDS LIKE SHIT!!!Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

AH come on now. I like the way my 3" straight pipe flowmasters sound. Maybe its just the 6.0s. I to have never seen a stripe like that. Where does it start at? I like it, looks good on that blue. Also, any little thing to make them different from all the rest, I like.2004 GTO, A4, Torrid Red/Blk, 1 of 1031, Yank SS3600, Dart-225s 62cc, Cometic .040, CompCams 230/236-.613/.608-112LSA, Hi Tech 7.350 pushrods, Kook 1 7/8, CAT/Reson. delete, 3" H-pipe, super 40s, Ported TB, TB bypass, 160TS, SLP MAF, JBA wires, NGK TR-55, New ERA CAI, tuned = 392hp/344tq

Is that Xenia OH? I have seen posts from folks from the Dayton area. I am in Englewood. The straight pipe issue is a tricky one. It is a matter of taste but I sure like the deep rumble of a powerful v8.

The Ohio goat community is growing very fast down around Dayton.
