  1. Ideas please

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    I’ve just purchased a mk8 2.2 I-cdti and I’m looking to make it sound a bit sportier.... if I put a straight through exhaust on without doing all the rest of the mods (ie remap etc) Would it effect the power more/less or not at all ???
  2. Exhaust baffles?
