Re: TT exhuast clerance problems (badbennyb)

Is it the dynomax setup or borla? Dejavu....
TT said that the borla fits a little better than the dynomax setup.

Re: TT exhuast clerance problems (badbennyb)

I have the stainless TT exhaust w/Borla muffler on both my Golf Sport and my wife's Jetta GT. My wife's exhaust was installed today and there are no clearance problems on her car or mine for that matter; my car is lowered at least 1.5"- 2".
If the system was installed as per instructed by TT, then you should have no problems. If I remember correctly, the instructions call for 3/8" to 1/2" clearance from the chassis of the car.

Re: TT exhuast clerance problems (badbennyb)

I had mine installed on Saturday. I am having a clearance problem also, Ihad a loud thud under the back seat\trunk area. I got it readjusted today, the thud is less frequent but is still slightly there. I am gonna have them re-readjust it.
I love the sound of it!!! It is nice and low but not loud at all (TT with Borla and 2 resonators).

Re: TT exhuast clerance problems (ja)

Do you have the VR6 or did you special order it with 2 resonators?
If i find that mine is a little too loud i will add an additional resonator.

Mine is a 2.0. If you get the system directly from TechTonics Tuning they have the second resonators without it being a special order.

Re: TT exhuast clerance problems (ja)

is it that much louder without the second resonator? I ordered striaght from TT, aluminized w/borla ss and 2 resonators. But i was hesitating to buy the second.

I have a cam in my car, so it is a little louder than my wife's car. It is not loud at all, it has a nice tone and it burbles at idle.

I'm happy with the TT system, that's why it's on both our cars.

I have the same issues and after 1 year of screwing with it, its still not right. I have learned to live with it I guess.

Re: TT exhuast clerance problems (Fast16v)

The second resoantor reduces cabin groaning, but the inside of it is the same size as the rest of the exhaust piping, so the out the tail pipe sound is not effected. Very worth it in a VR6. As to the fit, I have found that the TT to cat clamp they give you is not enough as the connection tends to droop pulling the entir system of of alignment. You should stick a 2x6 or a little more under the brace (the one under the cat) which will hold the system up. Then make sure it is slid foward all the way onto the Cat, and then have 2 or 3 small tack welds put on it....the alignment will be perfect. This needs to be done on an alignment style rack by the way that allows you to lift the car with the wheels supported, not dangling like a regular lift....
