    Best exhaust for 1.7 CDTi Van???

    I've got a 2004 Mk4 1.7 CDTi van and basically want it to sound less like a diesel! I've seen a decent new exhaust on ebay for £100...

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    But not sure if anyone has any advice/recommendations on an exhaust for the van?

    Oh... and was also thinking about a dump valve aswell lol. Again, any recommendations?

    Cheers.

    a dump valve will do more harm than good to the turbo

    as for exhaust it will always sound like a diesel if your lucky you might get it to whistle

    my 200bhp 1.9 cdti triple 8 had a full magnex system complete with decat and it whistled quite loud when on boost abit like a kettle lol its hard to explain i liked the sound but its nothing like a petrol
