    Mk4 Gsi exhaust ? ?

    Hi every1,
    i'm just wondering, if i put a gsi exhaust on my 1.4 16v would it be loud ? NCT (mot) coming up soon and wont pass if the exhaust is putting out over 99db of noise.
    Also wondering how much a mk4 gsi exhaust is worth in € . . .
    Thanx

    what exactly do u mean by "GSi exhaust" ??

    Is it a standard factory fit one or an aftermarket one

    if standard then you'll achieve little noise increase - if aftermarket, all depends on the brand/condition/design etc

    remember of course the turbo models used a bore diameter of 2.25" on factory fit systems - and most aftermarkets tend to be 2.5" if not 2.25" or 2.75/3.00"

    your existing system will only use a 1.75" bore so youll encounter some difficulty there

    What is it exactly u aim to achieve? if ur worried about noise output but want the looks of a different setup then why not just change the rear box or even just the tailpipe!!!

    I will try and just get the back box if thats the case . Its a factory gsi exhaust. If i just put the back box on will there be much noise ? And would you have any idea how much a gsi back box is worth?
    Thanx GeorgieBandit

    a standard GSi backbox is just the same as a normal backbox on any other model - just with a slightly bigger bore and maybe a polished tailpipe if ur lucky!

    personally i wouldnt waste ur money

    just get a proper aftermarket backbox for your correct engine or just whack on a new tailpipe onto ur existing system

    unless of course ur current system is falling apart
