    Hi all, does anyone know what catless downpipes are available for this car, I've found miltek but they seem expensive and it says you need the full system for it to work? Any help would be great!

    You should be able to get adapters to make it fit. Or get one custom made. I had a 3'' straight through pipe made for mine, here are some examples :




    There are some better sounding ones on youtube if you do a search

    I thought that decatting witch opens up the turbo made it louder? So this back box delete, is it a DIY cutting and welding job or can you buy it ready made to fit?

    As far as im aware that is to do with the variation of turbos between the 170 and 140 2.0 engine. The 140's will do this but the 170's wont.

    I have fullt Milltek on mine which is a 170 and it doesnt make that noise.

    So just a miltek downpipe connected to the standard system would do it? Mr b mentioned a back box delete that does it too, witch is the cheapest and best way?

    There is a full Cobra downpipe Exhaust system available for the 2.0tdi that i was planning on getting. It's a couple hundred cheaper than the miltek too.

    Yeh I looked at them a few days ago, they look and sound good, but I'm looking for something cheaper that does the job, like a second hand downpipe or delete pipe if anyone knows of any
