Re: exhaust (WhiteJettaMK3)

Re: exhaust (latazyo)

If you have a 2L 8v motor, don't go any larger than 2.25" (unless you plan on going F/I anytime soon). Also, make sure that you keep sometype of resinator. The resinator does not nessesarily have to be the stock suitcase type. I used a "hot dog" type resinator with a straight through design.
The stock VR6 exhaust system works well on a 2L and sounds great to!

Re: exhaust (HappyVdubber2)

well...the Jetex exhaust for VWs sounds hot...pretty quiet....i personally had a Remus on my past vr6...sounded HOT...not too loud, pretty deep, i loved it, personally id go with that, as well as the hotdog shaped resonator to quiet it down a bit.....2.25 will work nicely but 2.5 is better

Re: (vr6chris)

if you don't want loud, then plan out your exhaust. 2.25 is good for MOST mkIII's, until you go forced induction or major engine mods. Keep the 2nd resonator. Stay away from the borla muffler (it's very loud). If you have a 2.0, you could simply upgrade to stock VR6 exhaust, it would sound much better.
Also, mandrel bent exhaust will flow a bit better, resulting in a slightly louder noise. a cruch bent system won't quite flow as well, it will be slightly quieter...
