      Edit: videos posted below.
      resonator (cherry bomb) installed on last page

      Downpipe measures 2.5" and is made by Tsudo. It is a catless downpipe with a tiny resonator in the place of a cat. The exhaust is a neuspeed replica 2.75" diameter.

      Everything bolted up like a charm with, and I kid you not when i say this, ZERO modifications and it sounds pretty nice. Also no leaks. It is loud and there is no other way of putting it, but that's what i wanted
      enjoy the s and questions are welcomed

      The mounts are not needed in any way on the usp. To me that looks like a high flow cat. Did op take a picture of the inside of it? Wall thickness? And 2.75? That's way too big for a n/a motor sure it isn't 2.25?
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      If it really is a neuspeed rep it will be 2.75.

      If that's the case, you are losing power. Its way to large for the motor. I mean not ridiculously huge like 3" but still non turbo, you've just essentially opened up too much

      Exhaust is indeed 2.75" and the "cat" looking section is a resonator, you can see right threw it. May i ask where you got your information as to this particular motor loosing power with 2.75"? Links/dynos? The 12v Vr's are dyno proven to make more power NA on a 3" ( link: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...aust%26quot%3B) Im confident this much higher flowing head than the VR would yield similar results.

      Its been beaten to the ground. But its also displacement and exhaust pulse. A 5 cylinder doesn't have the same scavenging effect a 6 would have. Its not a vr simply put. I mean if you compare even whatI believe awe said about the 2.0t even THAT was proven to not gain as much with a 3" exhaust. They suggested a 2.5" exhaust on a turbo (small turbo lol) talk with any of the 2.5 forum sponsors. now is 2.75 going to be as bad as 3"? Probably not. But you do need some back pressure in order to actually PULL the exhaust out. Bigger is not always better.

      Audi4u even claimed the OEM exhaust flowed just fine until around 300hp. And he was one of the first to turbo this motor.

      Our head does flow beautifully. Its an amazing head, but take into account that its not just the head.its the intake manifold, and exhaust mani as well. You've got to see the weakest link. most people even noticed LOSS of power with the Eurojet header. Dyno proven losses.

      I doubt you've lost a lot. But can assure you without a turbo you aren't particularly gaining anything.

      I need 3" myself. Should be replacing my Eurojet exhaust soon enough

      c2 has a 3 inch catback for the 2.5 but really you can probably put a gti catback on it. Are you gonna sell the eurojet?

      yeah i think i'll probably end up selling the eurojet. I think 3" Is needed. I'm going to get the SRI first, but then it'll be 3"

      want to be notified when it's for sale?

      i will throw mine on a dyno eventually because it pulls better than it did before but for right now all I have is my butt-dyno I did however get caught off-guard when i made some pulls in 3rd gear how quickly the miles added. I wasn't anticipating the miles to climb as quickly as they did.

      In the end, for me, it's about the driving experience. If i only have 170hp and the car is fun and maintains good gas mileage then i feel like I have won. I don't race nor care how quick someone else's car is. Most car's are "street princesses" never seeing a real day of performance that the expensive parts they installed were designed for. It's all about me and how much I love driving my car

      Until i put a dyno up there is no point in arguing, this is simply a picture thread to show people one of MANY eBay exhausts and their fitment. There are 2.25", 2.5" and mine at 2.75" and it's your choice as they are all around the same price. Some people don't have much money, such as myself, and if my exhaust holds up for a couple years + then it will be comforting for people wanting to tune for cheap. I pretty much bit the bullet and crossing my fingers on longevity.

      For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.

      Would you mind posting a link to the seller on ebay you bought it from? There are pages and pages and I'm trying to find the cat back you got, I had it bookmarked at one point but the auction ended. Btw, the setup looks awesome, and I like my exhausts a little on the loud side too, no point in putting one on if it doesn't make you grin when you hit the 2.5's 4k sweet spot.

      This doesn't sound bad at all, you can always throw in a resonator where the mid-pipe is.

      Whats the drone like on the higheway?

      Wasn't even arguing a point... Just was wondering if it was a typo.you're right its your car.do with it what you desire. But biggest question lies in why don't other companies make a larger diameter exhaust then if it makes power? Just my 02 cents. Continue on wasn't trying to start anything. I understand you just bought it so I'd be p!!ssed if someone rained on my parade about my purchase... Sorry dude.it does look good though

      resonator is in the future if i get sick of the noise...which i am enjoying for now haha

      Highways aren't bad, there is a little bit of drone i'm not gonna lie but TO ME the level is completely acceptable and i drive all highway to work and back for 15 miles each way at a constant 80mph.

      No need to apologize. this is an open forum you can voice your opinion it really doesn't bother me that much. I simply wanted to state that i'm not ALL about numbers but the experience and the overall feel which this 2.75" system is able to deliver

      As you can see i've been on these forums a while so it's not my first rondevous there is a reason I posted this in the technical 2.5L forum as opposed to MKVI. There seems to be a buncha winy sheep with biased opinions in the other forum as opposed to here where people have a little more technical knowledge and can provide good feedback/opinions.

      Being a 2.5 owner since 08 and after extensive reading of not only 2.5 information.but also many many different informative articles regarding exhaust and it's needs was the only reason I spoke up. I see you have also been around for some time as well. Glad you are savvy enough to see I wasn't coming at you! Lol lord knows your back piece is something I didn't know existed, and something that could help with my turbo set up. I agree too many people concern themselves with what others think is"cool" my car I actually DO drive and occasionally track.

      Makes me happy to see there are still guys out there doing what THEY want, not what the scene deems as correct.

      Gotta check sound clips now. Haven't done that yet!

      As you can see i've been on these forums a while so it's not my first rondevous there is a reason I posted this in the technical 2.5L forum as opposed to MKVI. There seems to be a buncha winy sheep with biased opinions in the other forum as opposed to here where people have a little more technical knowledge and can provide good feedback/opinions.
      A lot of truth in the MKVI statement. At least in the Jetta section, most people are 'derps' and don't know sh*t!

      Read here.

      Towards the back.

      to a good looking exhaust.
