I don't know how to explain . I mean like the deep rumble sounding. What other mods can be done to the exhaust system except removing the cats and the rear muffler. Can an x-pipe give it more deep sound?. I read that 05 touareg comes with an H-pipe

Hardly noticed any change in the sound at all. Maybe a bit of "drone" @ 1600 RPM.

What did you remove? Just the rear suitcase? Mine sounds like a boat with just the rear muffler delete.

You could remove the resonators, and the middle muffler...

My touareg does not have a mid-muffler. I'm not the first owner so I don't if it came with it. Probably the original owner took them out.
Where is the resonator located at? Do you have a picture of it. There is confusion whether some touaregs have a resonator or not.
Where is the resonator located? I don't even know how they look. I only know about the flex pipe, the primary & secondary cats, and
the mid and rear muffler,

I have a touareg very similar to yours; mine is tan/gold.
I'm fixing to be upgrading the exhaust on mine also!

Based of feedback, VW decided that Americans hated the quiet mufflers. They introduced a "Sport Sound Performance Package" for the American Touareg Market that deleted the center resonator and modified the original factory muffler (removing some of the baffle plates inside) to give the exhaust more sound.

Oh ok. That makes sense. So the sport sound performance package is on which models? Did VW introduce the change starting in 2005 touareg v8? or from earlier 2004?

It was a stand alone option. It is worth noting that it allowed VW to save money. VW put it on many (most?) of the North America production.

It was not on the 2004 period. It was on the 2006 models. I believe that the late 2005 models were the first to have it as an option.

The Touareg in the video up there is my Touareg. Before I did muffler delete, the exhaust had a lot of bass to it. Whenever i started the car, you could hear the clean exhaust sound and you could tell the car was on when standing next to it without paying attention to it because of the exhaust note. NOTE: THE TOUAREG DID NOT HAVE CENTER MUFFLER. Fast forward, I sold the car and I bought another 2004 Touareg v8 and my brother bought a 2005 Touareg v8 too!. But his and mine are a lot quieter than the previous one, almost no bass in the exhaust sound We have been trying to figure out why that it and NOTE: THESE ALSO DON'T HAVE CENTER MUFFLER?
