Common courtesy dictates that you keep it quiet as possible, out of respect for your neighbors and fellow motorists. You are not impressing anybody with a 'meaner' sound, only irritating.

Meaner means more money, go to you tube and type in VW GTI Engine swaps, that will be about as mean as you can get and still keep it on the road.


lol jsut put a magnaflow exaust on it it will get the mean sound if you get the right system, not to mention it makes it run smoother and gives it a few more horses
