Hey everyone, I bought an exhaust system from a forum member here, its a Unitronic catted downpipe with Magnaflow catback exhaust. I am looking forward to having it installed this Friday. Does anyone have any experience with this set up? Just curious to know anyone's subjective opinion on tone, drone on highways/around the city. I have watched many exhaust videos and read as much as I can. The one Unitronic DP + MF catback exhaust video on YouTube seems to show a pretty mean deep tone.

Congrats!

I'm going to mate a similar downpipe, but with an Eurojet catback. I'm still waiting to receive the needed parts to be able to connect the two pieces.

Please share a video when you are done with your installation. I'll try to do the same as soon I'm done with mine.

Stock cat back with Vibrant bottle resonator

Hey yall, new to the GTI community as well.
I am not seeing many people run a Remus setup. From their videos the sound is so nice. I even searched for one in FS and only found one ever FS used (hopefully because people love them so much). I would love a sound similar to that, does anyone know which catbacks are on the quieter, deep tone side?

Ordered a Magnaflow cat back exhaust yesterday.

So I am considering starting a little project here, and wondering if anyone has gone down this road. I am about to buy a vacuum actuated exhaust cutout after the DP, and normally it just dumps straight down. That's cool and all, but I want to make life difficult so I'm going to fabricate a side exit exhaust in front of one of the rear wheels. I haven't got up under the car since I thought this up to look at the feasibility of it, but the plan is to make a flat rectangular exhaust with the same volume of the 2.5" round exhaust to promote flow while not impeding ground clearance as much as possible. Anyone gone down this road or know someone who has?
