    You can always delete the backbox and just have a centre box.

    That's seriously loud and bordering on antisocial even to drive.

    Tried it....went back to the non resonated system.

    Put in a screamer pipe?

    That means a new turbo plus external waste gate system.

    May as well go balls out if you want to be antisocial haha. Seriously though the milltek will take a bit of time to bed in

    Never really noticed that with mine and it was a bit of an experiment deleting the backbox and keeping just a centre.

    I wouldn't recommend it overall as its very noisy and drones at around 2500-3500 rpm.

    You'd have a LOT of work and cost involved in screamer pipes and I think most wouldn't bother.

    Would adding the milltek downpipe increase the noise?

    Not really.
    And a decat won't either to be honest.

    I'd suggest being really sure you want to do this as its fun for a while and then gets pretty intrusive.

    I'd rather have something to improve performance.

    At least a 3" Turbo back and then back box delete with what ever tail pipes you want to have which should give you a loud car and you will hear the turbo spool up much louder aswel which is a nice feeling lol

    I was about to do my miltek non-res exhaust but wasn't sure if I should be remapping the car to stage 2 straight on...

    I think its worth doing remap to stage 2 as requires all the hardware changes incl exhust.... which to me means more quality exhuast sound/noise rather than one of those cheap ones on VW Polo which you most of the time down the road...

    What do you guys think...?!?
