sounds great, so what did you do, change piping to 2.5" all the way to back muffler that is a 20" magnaflow with dual tips?

thats pretty simple and sounds great.. so no resonator at all right?

do you get drone at constant speed on say highway

Here is the video, 2.5" from downpipe flange back to a 20" Magnaflow muffler with dual tips.

Sounds nice. Like my old setup, kinda miss those days.

I am now running a 3" Turbo back (no cat) system in my 1.8 with Resonator going into a Magnaflow with a single hidden tip.

How is your interior volume when cruising at highway speeds? I am considering a dual outlet tip for my B5 as I find the interior a bit boomy at times (same issue when I had the 2.5 Cat system).

It is very pleasant and fairly quiet on the inside, I get very little drone. Cruising on the highway the exhaust sound is non existant. All together the setup cost me like $210.00. It is 2.5" straight with a Magnaflow muffler and no resonators, I plan to maybe do a TT highflow cat and a downpipe.

3" ? Is this a DIY or is this available in a box? Are you saying that your "new setup" is too loud at highway speeds?
