I am looking for performance but not so much sound. Jetex is what I am leaning towards, however I would also like to add a Hi-flow cat. I have been reading alot, but I would like to know what you TIP drivers are running.
I have the TT system. Mainly because they are the only ones that make a DP for the tip trans. Plus I like the deep tone of the TT system. Jetex is just slightly deeper than stock, they make great exhaust's. I'm not sure if Jetex makes a full cat-back or turbo back exhaust for our cars, I thought it was just a generic muffler you can buy, like Remus.
Yes - cat is short for catalytic convertor.
I believe the "cat" is integral with the downpipe from the turbo.
The cat-back will be cheaper, obviously.
Labor on the downpipe is probably brutal, especially with the Tip.
I'm sure 1.8T Tip owners will chime in.
i used to have the neuspeed cat-back, which included dp. it was 60mm (2.36") system.
i later switched to the jetex system. the jetex system does not include a dp. but i ended up keeping my neuspeed dp and mated the 2. i then threw on a tt hfc, and get the intermittent CEL despite the O2 sensor mod.
but as limey suggested, tip trannies have option of neuspeed and tt as they're the only 2 systems that come with dp. if not, u can try jetex or greddy.
btw, jetex was meant for b5, not b5.5 so i think on the b5.5, fitment maybe an issue, ie might have to weld an adapter to extend the length of the piping.
