      Nothing wrong with stock check valves and the stock system

      If that hose is rubber, and it's as old as the car, I bet the rubber is toast and it doesn't have any rigidity left in it. I'd replace that hose.

      Also, a good exhaust shop will be able to cut that old mesh out and weld new stuff in. You don't have to replace the whole downpipe if you don't want to.

      What kind of upgrades do you have that makes you think a 2.5 isn't big enough? A 3" is better, but a 2.5 is still pretty good.

      It kinda is, but kinda isn't. The hood profile, and nose profile seem to make it a lot tighter. I know it's easy working on my mk4 but when I worked on my friend's TT225 I had a hard time getting...

      Only thing I could think of is it's a tight engine bay and it made for simpler wiring. The TT225 engine bay is a squeeze.

      Yeah...superglue isn't gonna cut it. Just go replace it. It's more than a y-pipe. There are two check valves in there that need to function correctly. It's a pretty trixy part.

      How old is your battery? Sounds like the battery may be low when the car is sitting overnight, then after you've driven a bit the alternator tops it off and you're good again.

      If you're doing the work yourself, then just regreasing and replacing the boot can be cost effective. There's a chance the CV is just fine. The outer CV's don't go bad nearly as often as the inner...

      I'm thinking clutch, CV's, or wheel hub bearings.

      Wheel hub bearings are easy to check on the rack. Put the car on the rack. Have someone start the car and idle in 5th. This will make the...
