It sounds a lot better than I expected it to. I'm not crazy about the sound of straight pipes on ALH TDIs.
Yeah but some people (like me) would like to have some semblance of a legal exhaust for where we live.
I'm sure they'll do a straight pipe exhaust since they are super easy to make. I for one however will be ordering one with the egr stuff still functioning and a catalytic converter.
The DSG is the same
The goal is to be able to supply a range of individuals needs and to offer some sort of customization when you order your downpipe. This means it may take a little time between the order and the production, but It also allows you to have exactly what you want.
Still waiting on the owner to get back to me on the tune changes. I have test tunes ready to go just need to set up a time to do so!
On the hardware... I have a stack done of downpipes and exhausts. AND the golf one is ready to head out and get duplicated Sorry I haven't posted more here. I have been busy trying to finish the work and site, which doesn't seam to end...
So... Tuning session for tomorrow is officially setup. And some downpipes are already done and sold. AND my site is up to make things a little easier. If you guys run into any problems or questions let me know. I am a certified vendor for Malone tuning and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
Can't wait to see the results!
Does the exhaust eliminate the valve as well? Also, will the downpipe work with the stock cat-back or other aftermarket catback for those whom already have one installed?
The downpipe is setup to be connected directly to our exhaust system for a true 2.5" turbo back system with very little restrictions. Purchasers have the option to have us add a CAT in or DPF and you can purchase an adapter to connect the downpipe to the stock flapper valve. Sadly, other vendors "cat back" exhausts don't have nearly enough pipe to them since they just delete the rear muffler and add a shinny tip. For them to be converted to a true 2.5" back custom fabrication work will need to be done or users can leave a section of the stock exhaust in the car to connect the two.
I actually wasn't going to do an exhaust setup because of others on the market, but after finding out that they end the pipes way before the flapper valve, I decided it would be best for us to have the ability to do a true 2.5" system.
Raddo that is correct. At this time they are not a package deal, because of the amount of customers who want different configurations.
I know the price seams high, but for having to make 5 custom sensor bungs, and custom flanges along with the tooling to make these and Stainless steel prices being through the roof I cannot drop the price any more. Others on here have tried to make these, but they are not easy or cheap to build, therefore, conventional cost structures of gas downpipes cannot be used. Even some European models are going for $1000 euro without options! I have tried to place my price as low as possible since I have less overhead than competition, and still offer the same great benefits.

Texas HP will check your fuel!
My uncle (big red dodge) got stopped and they took a sample out of his tank, checked his tint too, Just looking for a reason for a bogus stop.
I used to roll around in vegas in my 82 rabbit, had the stock cat but it was completely hollow. still passed the sniffer test.
I think it depends on luck and your behavior and where you are.
My 2 cents
oh and if I had the $ right now, I would do it in a heartbeat over here in Germany
I can get CUSTOM EURO PLATES
37.89 AVG MPG over the life of the car in Germany!
I have a mk6 GTI but I'm interested in the mpg gains that the TDI guys get with the DPF delete. My dad has a 2010 ram 3500 with the 6.7L Cummins diesel and I figure that the mpg gains from the DPF delete on a TDI would be similar with the Cummins.

Sorry, I haven't checked this in a few days.. On vacation right now. I will be getting back with the customer next weekend with some more fuel economy info. Overall the winter fuel, roof box, and winter tires are not the best comparisons to his prior summer fuel economy.
I assure you guys, the MPG gains alone will be staggering, not to mention adding some character to your car. Kyle is an awesome dude and has worked really hard to make this a quality part.
Kyle havent forgotten about you, just had a couple things come up ill be ordering soon. Thanks for listening to the market
[QUOTE=OttoSchultz;65466685]..what do you think we get from a pump at a station?....#2 Diesel. I wouldn't want to run #2 heating oil or farm Diesel because of the sulfur contenttQUOTE]
Farm diesel, marine diesel, off road diesel, submarine diesel,ttractor diesel home heating diesel, non-taxed dyed diesel and many more that I am not listing. Are simply the EXACT same fuel you buy to go into the tank of your little Jetta. It comes right down the same pipe and at the very end of the process it splits into 2 pipes. One get dye put in it and Fed Hwy taxe taken off of it. The other gets no dye and get to pay some Hwy tax. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE in these fuels.
Numbers 1 and 2 Diesel Fuel are the primary fuel for mobile diesel engine applications. Number 1 Diesel Fuel is commonly labeled at the pump as "Premium Diesel" or with a Cetane number of 44 or 45. It is not as thick as Number 2 Diesel Fuel and for this reason is the choice for motorists during the cold winter months. The disadvantage of Number 1 Diesel Fuel is that it does not have the lubricating qualities associated with Number 2 Diesel Fuel. While Number 2 Diesel Fuel has a higher lubricating quality than Number 1 Diesel, its thickness can cause rough starting in a cold engine and rough-running in cold weather.http://flashoffroad.com/Diesel/Diese...iesel_fuel.htm#2 diesel should have a cetane rating between 40-55. If I remember correctly, nothing lower then 45 should be run in most common diesel engines, lest it's non-turbo. The higher the cetane rating the better, especially on cold days, as it will make starting an easier process. In the winter, look for the highest number you can find.
The DPF and tune changes will indeed allow you to run a higher Biodiesel percentage without issues with the DPF. I would stress that using biodiesel not from the pump has varied degrees of quality and may cause issues with the high pressure fuel system. Bosch will not warranty the pumps nor will VWOA over B5; although with some testing good quality grade B20 should be an improvement over non biodiesel fuels for the fuel pump wear and heat issues, I cannot fully confirm that a given number or mix is appropriate. Read into this however you want, just realize that you are your own warranty.
PS- Two more shipped out today and one more full system on the way. Tune changes have almost been finalized with mark. (Looking at Wednesday to test another revision).
PPS- I almost forgot! golf Mk5/6 Exhausts are in and ready to go. I need one individual willing to test a setup. I will give $90.00 off the retail site price for someone doing the exhaust testing with downpipe purchase. This is only for one lucky individual, first come first serve!

Toeball just installed his said it took him 3hrs on the lift. He still needs to get retuned to the newest version of stage 2. Here is an in cabin video:
later he also states "I noticed a bit over 4 mpg improvement" But it may change due to retune.

The max. HP and TQ won't increase much, if at all, due to limitations of the stock turbo + injectors. Our Stage 2 tune is already very strong, with or without DPF. However, the exhaust upgrade will lower EGT, meaning that you can sustain maximum power longer. I have hit the EGT limit during a 3rd gear 1500-4000 RPM pull on the road in the Summer, so the exhaust upgrade will help.
Fuel economy gains and reliability (no more DPF or exhaust flaps to worry about) are bonuses.
The exhaust change will also work very well with turbo and injector upgrades.
