I searched a few threads and a few of them said not much gains when you get an aftermarket setup, but i was still wondering if I will gain power on an aftermarket exhaust? Just like to get more info on why?
I have a 01' GTI VR6, right now with only a GIAC chip and custom CAI. I have a set of custom cams going in soon, the profile is a bit loewr than the Schrick 268.
I was looking at the Remus Golf specific muffler, will I gain any power from it being only an resonator back exhaust with 2.25" pipe.
Also what size is the stock pipe?

Re: any power increase on exhaust upgrade? (luigi1181)

The consensus seems to be that the VR6 exhaust and cat for that matter, were well designed to begin with. The techtonics is one of the few that gives you gains. Some apparently do nothing. But you don't do your exhaust for the power. You do it for the sound, glorious sound....

Re: any power increase on exhaust upgrade? (mdt)

if you go 2.5 cat-back you will def see gains. Id recommend Techtonics if you go that route. You can get the full system for the same price as one remus muffler
