Install a cold air kit and a performance muffler that should give you the sound your looking for.


i have seen cheery bombs on these cars but i would not do that. you can get some decent performance mufflers that provide the right back presure for your car that make a nice sound going out the pipe jsut look around and youl find a site that will have the parts you want

Cat back exhausts are OK. But for max performance & deep sounds have an exhaust shop with a pipe bender, fab up a custom 3" single exhaust pipe. A single 3" pipe flows more than duel exhaust's! Use a 3" inlet & outlet cat & an Raven muffler too. Tube headers if you want & if your budget allows. My sb Chevy 350"/350hp pickup shown with rear side exit custom 3" exhaust. (& not in the way if ever towing, cool.)

Cherrybomb glass packs are trash & sound so bad.


i agree thats why i said not to :P cheer bombs are the poor mans exaust sound so we can leave those to all the honda civics out there with them installed :P


The most common exhausts for vw and audis are magflows they usually cost a decent price and cover from back to front. thought i put that in my first comment but guess not

Aftermarket cat-back exhaust systems use bigger dia. tubing & smooth mandrel bends to flow more exhaust. The sound resonance comes from the muffler. Just choose a good high perf muffler to match your stock tubing diameter. I like Raven high perf. cat. converters & mufflers. They are designed will less internal baffles that sound good. Bigger tubing is always an option IF you have the money in your budget. See & go to a muffler shop & ask questions & get estimates.
