      First of all, I would like to thank Mike @ Forge Motorsport for all the help to get my hands on this gangsta exhaust! And Four Season Tuning for the installation!

      This system is a cat'ed and resonated Scorpion Titanium Turbo-Back.
      The exhaust is super light and the build quality is just WOWW!!!
      Installation was a bjtch since we had to take the driveshaft out in order to get to the downpipe.
      Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to do comparison weight between the Scorpion Ti and stock exhaust, oh wellz...

      Anyways, enough talking... Here are some pictures. Enjoy!

      welcome to the club, it looks great!. The scorpion is about 20kgs lighter than stock.

      ECU tuning is required for any exhaust system with high-flow cat.
      I don't have ECU tuning on mine just yet (still shopping around to see the best to my needs) BUT I do have a 02 sensor spacer installed in order to avoid CEL.

      Interesting... Do you think that by doing that, you may be causing any possible future missfires or anything that can either be negative in the long run or see any immediate effects (i.e. loss in power, engine not running smoothly etc)?

      Don't think it would cause any problem.
      I have had the same 02 sensor spacer on my 1.8T GTI daily for over 3 years now and the car is driven 100+ miles daily, no problem whatsoever.

      That's exactly the same issue that I'm dealing with as well.
      I want to chip the car, but at the same time I kind of don't want to.
      This is probably why I'm lagging in deciding which software to go for

      Hahaa ya.
      Honestly I'm waiting to see when APR is gonna come out with 100 octane file for our car.
      When I chip my car, I'm also going to add water-meth injection as well.

      $$$ wise is actually comparable to miltek race TBE, just a tad more on the Scorpion.
      But weight saving wise, I think I shaved a lot more with the Scorpion Ti.
      And I will get around to taking video when I have time. Work has been keeping me really busy as of late.

      I'm assuming that there are different version of Scorpion exhausts? I thought I remembered one with a valve that closed and opened like the 08 R32's?

      WOW,

      so I take it that was a custom job in order to use the stock OEM flapper?

      do you have a thread linky that goes into more detail for Jonny C's exhaust?

      Sorry, I'm just not feeling that for a road going car. I'd never be able to live that on a road trip or as a DD. I'll stick with Switchie and enjoy both worlds.

      Yupz, everyone has their opinions. You can stick with your switchie and others can go loud on other options.

      Would not invest in a titanium exhaust, any pipe work will just do.
