WTK: Mufflers Mufflers Mufflers

Postby VDub » December 1st, 2006, 10:56 am

I'm looking for a muffler for my VW Golf mk4

But i doh wanna go putting any old noise maker on my baby. How do you choose the right muffler for your car?

I've been told that once its a freeflow i would get a slight increase in performance ranging from about 8 - 10 horses...

Is this true?

I have also been told that some mufflers may ever choke the engine and decrease your performance...

Is this true?

Help out a youngen in the game...

u need good resonance, meaning good resonators cause most them the barrels out there are fart cans

More like 2-5 horses if it's properly done.

yea dem muffler tips duz really jus make some old noise yuh know....i have on a barrel and all yuh duz hear is ....TWOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA......lol......if yuh goin dat way yuh have tuh run d same piping size as d tip to get max performance....like if yuh only have 1.5" runnin throughout.....yuh really feel a 2" barrel tip go increase yuh performance without runnin 2" right through also???

bigger barrel tip duz just make more noise an not much extra performance...yuh go actually be lucky if yuh get any more speed from jus addin a barrrel....ah next ting too..if yuh running bigger exhaust...like 2" instead of 1.5" den it will now mean dat you go have tuh upgrade yuh intake flow...

yuh go hadda get rid of dat normal black filter box dat d car duz come with and install ah cold air intake with a good brand cone filter .......ah car is like a human....yuh breath in from d intake and yuh breathe out through d exhaust.....so.....d bigger yuh exhaust pipes will mean dat u go hadda match it up with bigger intake pipes....

u will have to make da both upgrades tuh get maximum output from ure car though because if yuh jus install ah bigger intake such as cold air intake....and yuh doh upgrade yuh muffler pipes dat running from d front to d back...den yuh will end up creating a bottle neck effect dat will actually end up slowin u down and makin yuh muffler rell fart and ting....lol....yuh will be pullin in too much air and yuh will not be able tuh let it out fast enuff...

If you weld on a muffler to your stock piping....HECK NO.

Maybe 2 hp? :lol:

You'd need to upgrade your exhaust piping, along with your muffler, to get some more power.

Since you drive a GOLF, you should be aware that there are LOTS of performance goodies for your car out there. Check out brands like Neuspeed or Injen for a decent catback exhaust for your car.

If you want a "quiet" catback, then instead of the GReddy EVO, look at the GReddy SP2 for your car.

Wrong. You can do that and your car will get more power, regardless of using the stock intake or not.

^^FYI, most N1 catbacks come with a resonator of some sort on the midpipe section.

:roll:

Please don't confuse a real brand catback (HKS, APexi, JIC etc) with the 'fart cans" for sale for 600 dollars or so.

^^FYI, i have a Apexi NI na barrel eh partner, no imitations/rice stuff on my car
i had to use a 18" resonator to tone that sucker down so that it would not drown out what goes on inside my cabin
the best cheap barrel on the aftermkt that we get here is the Arospeed line
