    I've got to be missing something. Couldn't the cut-outs have been up farther and swapped left for right, so the down turns were on the outside instead of the inside?


    16:56 I saved you the trouble, there is zero chemistry between the fat one and the latent one.

    You could’ve made the cutouts even by putting the pipes so they point outward and away from eachother. That way you wouldn’t have to stagger them

    I think the New pipe thing is even abit too loud to enjoy when having fun. It sounds like a monser, but abit alot. The stock mustang exhaust was pretty good tbh

  • Daniel

    I just want some tones on our 1,0 inline3 polo aw.

    • Daniel

      the cheapest option which is also legal here in Germanlands would be a 400 buck Muffler switch

    • Daniel

      Nolans Mustang is probably louder at idle than our polo at 6k rpm

    what would have been better is if you put the left cutout on the right, and the right on the left. would have been a much better fit.

    You could also drill a tiny hole, think a few mm is enough. Then paint over the hole with fireplace paint which can take the temps and should protect from rust. I have not tested this, but it should work.
