    Default Press Bend cat back exhaust - 4age 16v

    Hey all,
    I was sure on getting a 2.25" press bent exhaust but my usual exhaust shop recommended against it, particularly due to keeping the drone down (as well as the volume too) and recommended going 2" instead. If i'm not mistaken most of the exhaust looks like its already 2" so it may not be much of an upgrade.

    His recommendation was to go with a redback style straight through muffler, a reasonable sized hot dog resonator and 2" press bent piping (can't afford mandrel bend)

    Stick with 2", it's more then sufficient for a stock to mild motor.

    Theres quite a bit of info online, most pushing towards 2.25" and some say 2" so its hard to know what to take in hehe. I'll take your recommendation
