Can anyone give me there opinion about putting straight pipes on a v8 2004 treg. I've seen it done on YouTube, however, would like to here about personal experiences with that setup
I was aware of proper exhaust setups and some mufflers out there to enhance the tone of the exhaust prior to doing this, but I was looking for something relatively cheap, and not spend hundreds of dollars, maybe even thousands after labor. I'm happy with it today as I was the first time.Since OP asked, here it goes. My opinion is that it sounds awful. Period.
If you poke back in the annals of history on here, I went through 3 different cat-back Leistung (owned by HHR now iirc) exhausts. The first and loudest one was fun for about 5 minutes. The drone on the highway and the slinking in and out of my old neighborhood to avoid the obnoxious sound of an automatic trans climbing and dropping RPM’s just added to the awfulness of living with it. When I finally got a proper exhaust setup that enhanced, not over-amplified the exhaust note, it was fantastic. A nice German V8 growl on WOT, subtle purr on normal acceleration, and quiet as can be when you wanted it to be.
Your vehicle so do what you want but realize the impression it leaves others. I’d hate to be your neighbor if you do it.
I learned that the hard way with my previous Touareg where I had both the secondary cats and muffler off. Loud and resonating.You can also delete the muffler or the cat. I think you should only do one of the other because on a gas engine when you delete both the muffler and the catalytic converter things tend to start getting crazy and out of hand. Loud and resonating.
😂Yes Its a V8😅. Some excuses:I thought you said that was a V8? Why is nothing happening? I've seen city busses take off at that rate!
Try changing your serpentine belt since the exhaust mod doesn't seem to have improved your performance.... others have seen massive improvement from that kind of maintenance!
