  6. Golf/GTI VII
    Hi there folks, looking to spice up the acoustics of my GTI a touch and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for parts that could add a bit of turbo flutter when letting off.

    Well, title pretty much sums it up. Have had the car since ‘13 and have always toyed with the idea of 1) more power, and 2) better exhaust sound. Elaboration- 1) More power: Adding a turbo, stage 1, chip… Something to up the current 170 horses. Open to suggestions and please do share your...

When I drove the car you can definitely tell there is a loss of boost and power. Should we take it to a shop or replace...
