    Muflorectomy help

    So I have done the above, I have gutted the cat removed the mid box and back box, and still she doesn't sound that different. I can here the turbo a tad under load and that's it. When I had the rear pipe work removed it sounded awsome just what I wanted a deeper tone and you could really here the turbo spooling. As soon as I put the rear pipe work back on, could here sod all, any ideas?

    Honestly bud, I've got sod all, a little turbo spool under load, that's it. Like I said, when the pipe work stopped at where the mid box would be (now just pipe work) was really really noticeable. But even standing at the rear of the car I can hardly hear anything.

    You've removed ALL of the silencers? and you think its still quiet?!

    My flexi split last year and it was deafening, and that was with the cat still in place.

    3" on a tdi? thats going to be somewhat overkill...

    2.5" streight thru from the turbo should be plenty loud.

    I haven't got 300 quid handy at the moment, and is that a good price just for pipe? I don't think so
