Hey guys,


so i have a mk4 tdi 1.9 golf and have bought a 1.8t petrol custom exhaust and fitted it. it was described as having a nice low tone but I have to say I expected better results.


Is it because diesel engines are noisier than petrol or is there a silencer Im missing?


new here and any help would be massively appreciated.

Exhausts are purely down to the person.  Too loud?  Fit more silencers.  Too quite?  Remove silencers., ig:@adam_g4fku, Adam's Anthracite Grey 1.8t Build Thread...

it's a diesel just remove all the exhaust boxes, straight through pipe done... won't be to loud if you want a deep exhaust note...  just don't be my neighbour... is an independent Volkswagen enthusiast website owned and operated by VerticalScope Inc.
