Back box delete on 2.0TDI
Hi guys, So after seeing a few people here have had their back box deleted I decided that I too will try it out...
I picked up a replacement pipe with tips already welded on from one of our own members here reddejavu who may I say has a very beautiful and scary white S3!
Here is the replacement pipe:
Very nice tips:
So after having these sitting in my bedroom for a couple weeks I finally had some spare time and went round to a local garage who do welding work and had them measure up and cut off the back box and replace it with the straight pipe:
The guys at the garage tried their best to line it up perfectly straight and I asked for a little poke just so that it's a little noticeable an easier to clean up.
So here is what it now looks like: (ignore the scuff on the rear bumper)
The final impression of this mod is fantanstic! The bit that I am really impressed by is that when idle or just toddling around town the exhaust doesn't sound any louder but when I floor it the roar from the engine is now noticeable, and then there is the noise it makes as you change gears... The wooing sound as the turbo spools is so addictive I find myself revving it just to hear the noise. The other benefit I have noticed is that I am no longer leaving big clouds of smoke behind me, this is probably as there is no box now for it all to gather up so whatever smoke there is just comes straight out of the tail pipes everytime I floor it :)
Well here is a video I got of the sound from the exhaust whilst revving it. Also bare in mind that my car has no engine mods at all... No map on it, it's a completely standard 2.0 TDI 140 BKD engine:
