    Cone filter? Think messing with exhaust will make it sound like a tractor!

    It might sound better with a remap and backbox delete, but some of us and especially me can't afford an S3, TFSI, 3.2 etc let alone able to run one, tax one and insure one.

    what can i do to my 2.0 tdi to make it sound a bit better?

    I'm also wondering the same thing. Tempted to try a Pipercross panel filter to see if i hear the turbo anymore as said above, or back box delete but I'm unsure - don't want it sounding anymore like a tractor than it already does!

    what can i do to my 2.0 tdi to make it sound a bit better?

    The standard air filter is the best thing you can have in your TDI unless you're pushing over 230bhp, if you want a better exhaust noise run a Miltek non-res system (which can be a bit drony at some rpm). The main issue is that the turbo acts as a very effective silencer for any exhaust noise on a TDI.
    TDI PD170 S-Line Sportback... 191.2bhp & 290lb/ft torque @ standard with an iffy turbo! No idea with the new one or Shark Stage 1 remap installed, DPF off Stage 1 ready to go, Suspension & wheels to be fitted... Still....

    Buy a v6 diesel, best of both worlds. But really a back box delete is more than enough and just leave it at that. Spend ur money on other things.
