2004 Touareg Muffler delete

Hi guys,
Since I got my 2004 Touareg V8, I always thought it was quiet and wanted to do something to make it louder. 2 and half years later now, I just took it to the shop and removed the rear big suitcase muffler and voila, the car sounds awesome. It is loud and guess what, whenever i see mustangs and camaros and dodge chargers and challengers in the street, i rev the car and they turn their heads Everything else in the exhaust system is stock. Here is a link to the video

Now I really like the sound. I have always thought that the factory muffler purr from the VW was too quiet.

I'm embarrassed that my wifes X5 has more V8 rumble than my 04 Touareg.

How about some pics?

Love it.

It sounds really good. I don't know if its my mind or what, but i do think the car feels a bit lighter because they rear big suitcase muffler is really heavy. Here are some pics of what was done underneath.

Thanks for the pics. That is pretty much what I was envisioning. Looks like you hung the pipes on the factory vibration mounts as well. Nice and clean.

I agree the suitcase is heavy, I had it off for the prop bearing repair. Took some muscle to get it back in.

I will put this on my growing list of things to fix/improve. Maybe a Fathers Day gift to myself.

I was looking at this the other day when I was lying under my mine doing the carrier bearing.
R5 diesel though.
Would need some muffler.
