      Is there a difference between a gas and diesel muffler? if so what? and what are the affects a gas muffler will have on a diesel car?

      I think the gas muffler is more restrictive. I have a 2.0 muffler and a TDI muffler laying side by side and the TDI one is much smaller with a larger inlet

      I think the 2.0 has a 50mm exhaust and TDI, VR6, 1.8T have a 55mm exhaust

      I think you should cut off your diesel muffler, and put in a straight pipe.
      Curved down if you have the stock bumper/apron...

      If you go to any local gatherings, I would be more then glad to show you what a straight pipe sounds like on a TDI

      TDI

      There some vids going around. Hows a really nice growl.

      If you have inspections in your state, then they would probably require you to have a muffler.

      A little OT, but do you get the same turbo howl at idle and whatnot running a straight pipe on a TDI?
