      i think my exhaust sounds pretty decent.the set up is a eurojet catback paired with SRI and upgraded mounts. makes it sound nice and throaty with a litlle gargle when you let off the pedal.
      i took a few videos last night and this morning, but its hard to hear with my camera, video needs to be played at full volume, i need a go pro to give my car some justice lol.

      im surprised thygreyt has not posted in here. his jetta sounds mean as hell also

Get over it, its just the forums anyways. If you get bothered by someone stating an opinion, you should leave the tex forums and go to some other less serious forum.

      I'll 2nd the suckiness of GoPro Audio.
      Currently I'm bone stock & broke, but I did buy a GTI muffler & rear valance.
      The plan is to ditch the stock muffler at some point down the road & replace it with something sportier. Maybe just add a Borla muffler to the stock GTI setup.

      For serious owners who would rather buy a R instead of a car that makes since.

      But before we tear apart this thread like one lonely customer is trying to do, Nice work on the MK6 Golf. Sounds very good, but military pay is military pay and it looks I'll have to wait for anything like that. Haha. I personally like my setup and plan on keeping it for a while.

      You make it WAY too easy to mess with you. Try going in to any other forum on here and posting what you did...My response is mild in comparison and I never said ANYTHING bad about anyone. I won't call someone out like that unless what they are doing is truely stupid.

      Get over yourself, I wasnt disagreeing with anyones opinion, and I am definitely not lonely customer. What ever that is...

      And claiming military pay isnt enough is BS, just gotta learn how to manage it. Been doing it for 5 years with no problems.

      Here is my current setup. HEP/United Motorsports SRI....stock downpipe and cat with an APR GTi 3" catback

      I think it sounds great. Real throaty like a nice vr6 exhaust and sort of unrefined like an old school air cooled. The thing i don't like, and Kholer may agree, it's too loud even at partial throttle. No more sneaking around. Even though you can hear the exhaust inside the car, it doesn't have a death drone thankfully. If I keep this exhaust, the car seriously needs about 200 more hp to back up that sound...plus I think the car is slower with it

      No vids but got a full 3" stainless steel custom exhaust, 3"downpipe no res, magnaflo catback. pretty damn pricey for custom work but worth it. Anyone in the GTA willing to film it so i finally get a vid? LOL.

      Very good article, sir. I love how people still -- to this day -- do the 'washer mod'. Esentially -- they create deliberate exhaust leaks for the goal of noise only.

      Personally -- I would only stick with the 2.5" from factory -- in and out -- and not d!ck with it.

      ((Correction: Factory is 2.25" -- 2.5" is maximum that I would not exceed))

      My setup
      Engine -> OBX Headers (ceramic coated) -> 2.5 midpipe (no cat) -> AWE (Helmholtz) resonator -> AWE (Helmholtz) resonator -> AWE (Helmholtz) muffler.

      I have the AWE Touring edition cat-back for the MKVI 2.5's. Dual resonator, single muffler.

      pretty sure my rabbit didn't come with 2.5" from the factory...I thought it was 2.25"

      I was wrong -- it is 2.25" -- all I know is that from past experience and knowledge -- 2.5+ was unwise/un-necessary for an NA motor, especially of lesser cylinders.

      i need to post a video... still need to figure out how to upload to youtube...i thought i could do it but my phone doesn't like to log me into my "channel" regardless i am running this setup currently

      C2 log style manifold->precision turbo->c2 2.5" v-banded downpipe-> usp 2.5" test pipe (no cat)->eurojet full stainless 2.5" exhaust (has one res and one muffler) ->out to the world

      it has quite a nice grumble. if i get on it every once in a while and let off kinda mid boost it creates this evil little burble popping backfire noise. i honestly LOL everytime i get it to happen...

      the thing is though. with nearly zero noise suppression, like a cat or any baffled mufflers the car is quite tame when just cruising around. it has a little drone but i give the motor mounts that credit for creating interior resonance.
      turbo's tend to do a good job muffling noise luckily i just get that really sweet wooshing. swirling. turbine sound when i really get on it! above all sounds the car make though in my opinion the sound of the diverter and wastegate shuffling off excess pressure sound GLORIOUS!!!
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      the eurojet catback is such nice quality, and i think it is the best sounding. i just have a hard time capturing the sound, the car is sounds very quiet and tame until i go WOT. I guess it is just one of the less noisy ones, but at least it sounds crisp and clean, not ricey or like a fart cannon/ straight pipe.

      Keep the 3" exhaust. loud and obnoxious is where its at. I love mine I have a 3" 42 DD cat back. It gets hated on all the time so its going to stay

      2.5 is the best diameter for your exhaust until you start pushing 300hp.

      Kohler, 3" has been proven to be bad on a STOCK car.

      Headers & intake mani may take advantage of the extra flow. After all, there is a half a dyno showing good low end.

      I'm not getting into this again. AWE has said OVER AND OVER that the 3in exhaust wasn't making any gains until paired with a larger motor, like the 3.2. Let me dig and see if I can find it...

      When paired with other products, you can't really say that the 3in did anything or took anything. Specially with a custom tune...C'mon man.

      precisely what i said. lol.


      on a STOCK car a 3.0" is bad.

      on a modified one, it MIGHT be good. it has yet to be proven with conclusive evidence.

      I had 198 on a n/a tune first run so I guess that's a custom tune?????

      Well, to many any tune where the tuners themselves are doing the tune is a custom job. I know Danny said he was working on it for further dev. Any word on that? Seeing that got me stoked.
