In my experience, you're going to get sick of it real quick and gather a lot of unwanted attention.

Lmaooo I like the attention and the loudness. But Iím kinda afraid Iím not gonna like the rasp to it so thinking of that is the case Iíll slap a little resonator in there. You had the straight pipes ?

Search YouTube for "GTI straight pipes" and you'll find a few videos. It's not "20 year old Honda" bad, because the turbo muffles a bit of sound, but it doesn't sound great. It's just a lot of low quality noise.

Yeah Iíd throw a few dollars on the side for a vibrant resonator, at least. Itíd probably leave you with about the same volume with less rasp.

Iím the oddball that likes a bit more rasp and treble in my exhaust note and a little less bass, but a straight pipe is just too much for me.

3inch pipe to a 2.5 inch pipe. Used to be a Borla catback til I cut the resonator off.
