In my opinion they are one in the same. See what I said here:

I ordered this one (link below) for the reasons I outlined in that post:

yeah i was referring to a comparison with other aftermarket exhausts. if all you want to do is delete the resonator and muffler you could do that to your stock exhaust and buy some tips for cheaper.

I didn't want to hack up the stock catback. I am going to save it for when I sell the car.

thanks for throwing some cash at this.

its not the prettiest piece of work, but for the price it cant be beat.

Have you heard a magnaflow or borla on a GTI before? I am curious if this falls in line with the sound from those...


last note....if you cant wait to get this on, should take about an hour or so with ramps and a beer/soda.

cant wait to hear your feedback

$499 is a great price for a catless DP and exhaust system (TBE). I'm just not too crazy about the hanger on the right being long as hell.


dasVW.com, looks good bro.

Interesting. The description states direct bolt on to OEM cat but in the picture it looks like the downpipe has a cat. I would love for someone to take a chance on this one and post a review.

I think it's a resonator, not a catalytic converter. I looked at an OBX catless DP and that's what the description said.

There appears to be a cat and resonator and muffler.

I was referring to the DP. It clearly says "CAT DELETE".

Based on the image I see on my phone, it looks like the flex area is smaller than everyone else's downpipe.
