I am looking for a straight through pipe to get rid of the middle silencer. Needs to be the same fitment as the standard 1.8t pipe just minus the silencer. Am I likely to get any sensor problems when doing this?

Well I fitted a backbox and there is no sound difference at all from the standard. I wanted it to sound a bit sportier. is there a sports version of the middle box available? Just something a little louder than standard?

i bought a straight pipe off ebay, cost me 40 quid, with the rest of the exhaust standard ive had no difference at all in the noise.

the main restriction of a mk4 exhaust is the downpipe, if you changed this then youd get a deeper note

You need to bear in mind that the turbo on the 1.8T will kill most of the sound and this is not the case on the smaller engine.

It will kill enough to get by with just a backbox [Y]

The diesels dont sound that bad without any silencers[:cool:]
