Hybrid exhaust modification.

Hey all, first time posting on here, have found tons of good info on my 12' Hybrid however have found anything on the underwhelming OEM exhaust note. I know that the 3L supercharged engine can have an amazing exhaust tone, and am surprised I can't find anyone who has tapped into it. I had the Touareg on the lift today to get the "lay of the land" underneath and noticed it had a quite large mid vehicle muffler inbetween the rear muffler and the cats. Has anyone removed this? Does anyone here have an aftermarket exhaust they have tried and liked? I am not trying to wake the neighbors with a simply loud exhaust, but would like a little more when I have my foot into it.

Wes

It's a resonator. Problem is, anything you do on there will make it sound like a pissed off bumblebee

Several people have removed the suitcase and gone straight through.

There are several threads and some videos too on here.
