Most Muffler shops just crush bend the pipes, plus TT fits good and the hangers are perfectly placed...

If you want it to rattle like hell you're going the right direction. Crush bent tubing and bad fitting, horrible joints, and most of them just cut the flange off your old exhuast without making the hole in it bigger. so it still flows like a 1.75" exhaust.

TT sells more exhausts for a MK2 Golf every day than most exhuast shops will ever make. Trust them.

i had mine made at a local muffler shop and it doesn't rattle at all and i got it almost 2 years ago. if you want to go cheap, go muffler shop. if you want to spend alittle more money, i would go with techtonics

yes tt is best but euro adds more hp and is a lil cheaper but tt is dependable if u get the ss will last u longer than car will.. supersprint is nice to a lil more pricy but oftt wins ever course poll so i would go with the safe bet and get tt ss if u can

Euro doesn't add more hp, its all relative numbers Colin. TT w/ borla flows better then a eurosport and sounds better. What makes you think eurosport gives more power? The numbers posted by the manufacture? In any case, its 1-2 hp.

Edit: Colin, ever hear or a comma or a period?

if he gets techtonics he can save on shipping since he lives in WA, like me, or he can just drive to OR and pick it up
