Magnaflow vs TechTonics - Sound & Performance
Ive heard the TechTonics on an MK4 VW 1.8T but cant find any sound clips for this motor with the Magnaflow.
Any Magnaflow 1.8T Sound clips would be appreciated as well.
Im looking for Smooth Sounding, Quiet, & Performance.
Nothing Raspy, or LOUD

I've heard both of them, side by side.
TT is quieter

Which TT was it??
Even though I have a VR6, mine is 1000x louder than Magnaflow.

[edit] didn't realize they moved this to the 1.8T forum

My magnaflow is just a little louder than stock and it has a nice rumble to it without the drone.

Having had both I'd say go with the Techtonics for performance (2.5" vs 2.25" for the Magnaflow) and the Magnaflow for looks and sound. The Technocis is simply a bit too loud and drony for my taste. The Magnaflow catback has the added benefit of being stainless steel versus aluminum with the Techtonics. May sound petty but the clicking noise of the Techtonics while the car is running and cooling down is just a tad annoying as far as I'm concerned

Re: Magnaflow vs TechTonics - Sound & Performance (GBXIII)

1.8T? And Thats exactly what im looking for. But I want a decent performance boost to. Doesnt have to be the BEST p.boost but has to be decent.
You guys that have had both, how many HP or just in driving different are they? Real noticable or just alittle.
I also like the fact that the Magnaflow has a clean setup with flanges, not pipe clamps. And the Lifetime Warrenty.
Also A huge price difference. Can get the Magnaflow for $350 to my door it seams like. Anyone know a cheaper place to get it?

Re: Magnaflow vs TechTonics - Sound & Performance (JJ2K1)

I dont have a soundclip on the 1.8T magnaflow thats what sucks. Just the MKIII VR6 off of magnaflows website. But it sounds sweet. I think it will sound verrrrrry similar just not as loud as the vr6
1. Little displacement difference
2. Turbo'd Motor
