    UPDATED WITH PICS OF EXHAUST INSTALLED I decided to get in on the Brullen Exhaust group buy. FedEx delivered it yesterday. I'm not sure if the photos do this system justice, it looks pretty darn sweet. Brullen 2.5" turbo back (quiet system) with dual 3" straight "Brullen resonated...

    I have a 99 V6 and would like to get a exhaust system during the GB. I have no idea on which exhuast tips to order. Does anybody have pictures? Any suggestions on exhuast tips. Tom

    What are the major differences between these systems? Sound, quality? What makes one better than the other?
  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    About to go for a Brullen cat-back on my V6, will this give me better mileage or worse? (Ignore the lead food effect)
  5. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, it looks like the Brullen GB is underway, so i'm just looking for opinions on the brullen exhaust. how much better is the turbo back vs. catbacl exhaust? anyone have torque/hp curves? and, more importantly, would my car pass smog (here in CA) with a turboback? also, is there any...

    Loud or Quiet? Who here has either, and what do you think? I don't want anything real loud, but I wanna be able to hear it over the wind noise with my windows down. I also want people to hear it coming, but maybe from a block away, not a mile away. Which one would achieve this for me?

    How much would a brullen catback be for a 1999 tip, 1.8t? Quiet, 3", Straight Whats the difference between resonated and hollow tips? What is included with the exhaust? Any downpipe or high flow cat? Thanks

    I just wondering, how many have their Brullen repair after a year? I have a leakage or hole in the pipe. I'll have it check on thurs. I hope nothing is serious. I'll post the result after.

    :mad: :mad: So in the essence of ClubB5ing, I went for the Eibach ProSystem like 2 months before winter was due to wreak havoc on Rochester, NY, one of the coldest cities in the U.S... To make a long story short I must have hit a chunk of snow or debris on the road because somehow one of the...

    I recorded some examples of my Brüllen exhaust today. I have a 2002 1.8T Auto. I ordered the 2.5" turbo back quiet system with stealth tips. I recorded the exhaust from 30" above the ground and 12" from the back of the car. It was recorded using a Shure SM57 microphone on a Studio Master...

    I installed my Brullen Exhaust on my 18t last night and now I am getting a check engine light!!!! Has anyone experienced this??/ What could this be? The car only has 6600 miles on it. I doubled check my work last night and triple checked again today.. Any thoughts. The car drives great. It is...
  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    First let me explain why I am asking about this. My Brüllen 2.5" turbo-back exhaust was installed on my B5 last week. I decided it was a good idea to order "stealth" tips. The only problem is that the down-turned tips (looks like stock) create a lot of drone at certain speeds in certain...

    I just got the brullen cat-back installed and for the most part I love it. However, sometimes either when I'm shifting from second to third, or when I let the rpm's drop slowly from 2700 to 2200, it makes an annoying and significant rattle. Of course the guy that installed it says that it...

    Well as some of you may know I'm in the market for a new exhaust system. I spoke to Richard at Brullen today and he said that if we can get 6-7 people he would price the exhaust, which INCLUDES the downpipe for $725 plus shipping. For 8+ people it would be $650 plus shipping. These prices are...
