Default Replace CAT converter for better sound\response

Please don't flame, but I want a better sound of out my 3.0T, and I don't really want to replace the entire exhaust system. Is there an afermarket CAT converter or another option?

Has anyone done an intake on this motor?

There are no replacement cats. To change the sound you gotta change the muffler.

Plenty of us have done intakes.

Anything you can do under warranty? like Stasis?

I really with Audi would offer factory performance parts like BMW, maybe some day... I will buy all of them

Not really. You can gut the airbox and run a K&N drop-in, but thats about it. Stasis is gone, so Audi doesn't work with anybody who has a matching warranty.
