    Hi all, i have an audi a3 2.0TDI 2010 Sports Back, my car has a vtech tune on it, tuned to around 175hp.

    would love to get the exhaust done, a miltek or supersprint. was wondering what you guys would recommend? and also would i need to remap again or would i be ok if i just add the exhaust?

    I would recommend a back box delete or custom straight pipe, nothing more. 2.0 TDI's can't sing, no matter what you do to them. Don't waste money on expensive exhaust system.

    Its about £855 i think, just a decat turbo back milltek system and remap and the car will sound like a beast, a nice rumbke unde acceleration just find a local milltek dealer they fit exhaust for free usually

    would that be the exhaust to go for people?

    do i go an exhaust for 140hp or 170hp, my car was a 140hp and now is V-tech tuned to 178HP, 1 place told me to go with what my car was when i got it 103kw - 140hp, just want to confirm that with you all,
    THANK U :)

    Depends what petrol though doesnt it ! Small engine Naturally aspirated petrol wont get much gains but turbo powered petrol will, insuring that your car has good air flow will make engine life longer and make it run efficiently thats why a bigger exhaust is better for a TDI if you dont want to tube it then leave it standard and be boring

    I'm talking about the sound... I'm saying even a 1.2 corsa with a good exhaust will sound better. A custom straight pipe as I said will allow exhaust gases to flow more easily than a system with numerous bends

    not the boy racer corsas they are just annoying, decat will make TDI flow better, i have ported inlet manifold and milltek for air flow, trust me a good exhaust is what you need for air flow and also if you remapping a TDI any good tuner will tell you a decat will help

    Would you need DPF delete on a 140 Tdi? I thought it was just needed on the 170 models. Can anyone confirm
