  1. 2002!1.8t gti exhaust

    I’m looking to put an exhaust on my gti and was wondering what is should get, I was thinking either a catback or a just a cat less down pipe, I don’t have quite enough money for a turbo back.

    Well my car is fun to drive (even though it's not fast), but I wanna give it some sound! Since it's a 1997 I still have to get emissions tests on it so I'm pretty limited here. I was thinking of running a straight pipe (bypassing the catalytic converter and keep the muffler), but it goes to the...

  19. Curse the Mil! No Power, bad sound.

    Hi everybody, Just came back from a 3h ride from NY. Got a flashing MIL when I stepped on the pedal of my 2001 Golf 2L. Got worse and worse; each time it went uphill the MIL had its seizure, the force of the engine was reduced and mild vibrations could be felt on the steering wheel. Now I'm...
  20. R32 Exhaust on 2.0 L

    I've looked & searched the exhaust sites & threads, but not seen this discussed. How difficult would it be to use a stock R32 exhaust on a 2.0 L? Connection either after the headers or cat. This assumes modifiying the rear bumper for the dual tips. I have access to a lightly used R32 take off &...
