What did you do to your MK6 today?

Yeah need a TDI to get those kinds of sounds. Even a stock one you can hear a faint bit of it.

I don’t think you can hear a K04 at idle. Never noticed it.
Definitely can't hear a k04 at idle. Interesting though after I installed an external oil cooler I hear a noticeable whine, it was driving me nuts at first but after I found out it's normal I got used to it. Sounds like a faint supercharger whine

Ill drop it since it doesnt seem like my question is being understood, vdubnick might have answered with turbo muffler delete. thanks for the input tho
I think you are misunderstanding what a turbo muffler is, it has nothing to do with the actual exhaust system.
Yes?

Do aftermarket downpipes not cause some extra turbo noise to come out? What about simply gutting the pre-cat?

Idk about that unit/brand, sorry.

Any exhaust can help some extra noises come out but mainly at low speed. If you're WOT then you're not gonna hear much turbo noises out the back end lol

I guess I was kind of vague the when I first asked. while idling seems to be the part thats being missed when I elaborated on it. while sitting still. idling, no accelerator input what so ever. some cars you can hear the turbo spool at idle with an exhaust, some you cant. my understanding of how an exhaust system works if the muffler portion is disrupting or absorbing the faint spool while our tiny factory turbos are idling
I know what you mean & you're right.

I've heard the 1.8T MK6 Jettas sound that way with an exhaust. You'll get some turbo whistle noises.

See at the 1:04 mark here & 1:23, for example:

exactly... this is why diesels can make that spool noise easily... they have no throttle, their intake is wide open, like cclark6146's mom
