exhaust noise is super subjective. I think the TT is much too loud. But I'm an old fart

exhaust sounds are SOOOO subjective I don't know how anyone can say one is "loud" or "quiet". Just buy the damn thing and remember you gotta pay to play, and sometimes the currency is in Db

Re: techtonics exhaust? (slwwrx17)

Please post some pics of the setup!!! Also did you get the stainless or aluminized? Is stainless worth $130.00 more? Where did you get yours and for what price? Sorrry lots of questions... I've been looking into the TT-Turbo back w/ borla. Got the TT w/ borla on the 2.0... Probally favorite mod.

Re: techtonics exhaust? (thewikwakdj)

I had TT exhaust with a borla muffler on my VR6 and it sounded better that any car I have ever heard. Not too loud but had a growl sorta like a GT mustang with stock exhaust. But then again its pretty hard to make a VR6 sound bad. And 1.8t's will sound alot different.

Peter at the scirocco.com will smoke any price you can find out there for TT exhausts. Get a hold of him if you want the best deal out there.

Re: techtonics exhaust? (Dr. Edlocks)

Wow, that guy seems awesome. Thanks so much for that link. I'll definatly get my exhaust threw him. If you have listened to his clip on the TT TURBO back, is that in a VR6 because I dont hear any turbo..? Sounds kinda droneish through 2,600 - 3,200 I'd say, and he has his tip out the back... hmm

Re: techtonics exhaust? (NeedleDub)

I had a TT catback w/Borla muffler tied into a GHL dp/cat for a couple of years on my old 1.8T GTi. It didn't drone nearly at all, only when you were in too low of a gear for your speed and letting the engine brake your speed. (example would be downshifting on a highway exit ramp and letting the engine do the braking) Almost any exhaust will make some drone/cabin vibration in that situation until the revs come down a bit. Even at high highway cruising speeds I had no unbearable noise, but you did know there was more than a stock exhaust on there.
Also, IMHO there isn't much of a better sound than a Borla muffler on any VW, whether it be 1.8T, VR6, 16V, whatever....

add me to this list... i have had it for 4yrs now.. performance gains are great (although i had the small 2.0 exhaust stock)... sound is very nice, usually fairly quite, but has a good bark when you get on it...
