I have Milltek from the turbo back, Thats downpipe with sport cat, middle pipe and rear box and it sounds very nice when you stamp on the gas pedal, and when driving like granny it is no louder than stock item. [Y]

No popping mate sorry , as for performance... Yes, definite improvement in performance when downpipe is fitted, not so much when rear box is fitted on it's own.

yer it has to be a full systme when it comes to exhausts, i might up for a different manifold to as this it wont increase my insurance as it comes under the exhaust system, do u think this could be worth it ?? [H]

Full system will set you back around ?700.

As for the manifold i wouldn't bother. VW made the mk4s good enough that it doesn't need changing.

How long have you had your Milltek for, I had mine fitted about three weeks ago, and I find mine to be very boomy at motorway speeds, and as you put your foot down from say 30-40mph it makes a very loud drone.

A mate of mine fitted it for me and had no pobs. It only has one big silencer at the back box and a straight through centre section and sounds sweet with a realy basey tick over and a noticeable performance increase. It even backfires. Overall I am impressed with the quality it powder coated stainless steel tubing and chrome back box with twin chrome square tailpipes.
