    Diesel - Decat downpipe, map & new backbox ..Opinions!?

    Need some help please lads and ladies.
    Thinking about trying to make my 8P 2.0TDi sound a little less like a tractor, although I know it isn't easy.. I'm thinking decat downpipe, new backbox and a nice map.. What are people thoughts? Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Downpipe will only slightly deepen the exhaust note and increase turbo noise. The tractor noise will remain no matter what, I recommend: Back box delete on 2.0TDI, or sell up and buy a petrol.
