Any suggestions for replacing exhaust on 91 golf GTI 8v?

Post by kyarns » Jun Tue 15, 2010 9:10 am

At 200k miles, the exhaust is no longer patchable. Trying to figure out if go back with stock system versus a modified systems. I know the digifant has limitations and thus leaning towards stock. I would also like to stay with a quiet system. This is a dayly driver rig. Any thoughts?

If you want quiet, you will want an OEM replacement. The upside to that is that you can probably get a new system made up with a quiet muffler at any local exhaust shop, depending on where you live. If you are looking for some mild performance gains and a bit more noise, I would look at a techtonics system. I have had 3(on different cars) and I love them. I think you can get them with a "quiet" muffler also. They will probably run a bit more than having a new one made, but worth it in my opinion!
