I have looked over and over to try and find as much as I can on what to do to get a little more respectable exhaust noise out of my WK2.
As yall have seen before with the winch install, it usually just comes down to me going in head first and obliterating everything.
This time I went much more conservative. I took it down to a very well reviewed and referred muffler shop here in Houston, Ripleys. (Thanks Jackal!)
After looking at the underside of these beasts (and the lack of usable space) I decided to do something simple and just delete the center muffler, and add an X-pipe.
Contrary to my doubts and reservations, it sounds very well!
It is very throaty and muscle-car-like at lower RPMs.
It seems like once it climbs above 3000RPM the rear resonators suppress the exhaust sound and keep it from being overpoweringly loud. (terrible use of words, my apologies)
I would post a video but I am terrible at them so again I apologize.
I hope this helps all those other people not wanting to spend $800+ for a cat-back system, or another custom system.
