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 ???

It wont sound any sportier, its a diesel with a turbo. All that will happen is you will get a weird fluttering noise when you lift off.

Cat-back can sound good. There's a Martellius cat-back on the Mrs car and it sounds nice and deep. You do get the Ric Flair wooo's but not too bad. I wouldnt go full system, you want the downpipe with the cat to provide back pressure for the turbo.
