It eliminates the unnecessary boost plumbing....so:

1. Better throttle response (due to less boost plumbing)
2. Cleans up the engine bay
3. Gets rid of the "fake" engine noises.....less of the Sea Doo/jet ski sound & more of the actual engine/turbo sounds!

Unfortunately I don't

I "borrowed" it from a Passat

There are no markings and/or part numbers on the clip either....so it must just be a universal VW clip

On my MKV though, I just zip tied those two hoses together (as an alternative)

Great job! looks so much better.
I have a question tho, is it possible to somehow plug it without removing so much? My car is a lease and im not sure if im going to be keeping it..

It's REALLY REALLY REALLY simple to do! (you just gotta keep all your stock parts)


FYI...my car is a lease too!

hi guys,

Ive been reading up on the noise pipe and am kinda confused as i don't see this pipe in my engine bay? BTW im from Malaysia. Different spec?

Anyone can concur if the Euro/Asian versions dont run the noise pipe?

Cheers

How does removing a gti's noise pipe and fitting in a tiguan's noise pipe help reduce potential turbo boost leaks? I thought you were supposed to just remove it and plug it up? If you put in a different noise pipe, then wouldn't it just do the same thing? Sorry a bit new to this

Look at the pictures again in the first post...you're deleting the "noisemaker"/muffler that sits under the wiper cowl which creates the noise.

The "Tiguan" pipe is the better/OEM solution. On the Passat/Tiguan, they didn't have noisepipes/noisemakers....they just came standard with the ("Tiguan") pipe that I added to my car.

So you delete that pipe on your GTI....get better throttle response, get rid of the "Sea Doo sound", you get to hear the turbo/engine more instead, & you clean up the engine bay....ALL with an OEM look

If you want to keep it simple/clean/OEM & not have issues with warranty....do the Tiguan pipe. It's a true bolt on mod.

A plug will work, but isn't the best idea (it can blow out...happened on a friend's MKV just over the weekend actually, and can leak too)

Never heard it

Try this mod first & see if that helps out, because the noisemaker was annoyingly loud on my car
