It's either just axle back which comes with the mufflers and built in valves that you need to get welded on. Or the full cat back that just easily bolts on.

On their site they offer two different x pipes. One for 1000 one for 1500.

This seems like it would be easier than dropping a full exhaust system and re-installing the stock set-up. You could have the rear pipes off and the stockers back on in less than 1 hour.
This would be an easier and cheaper option, indeed, and would be even quicker when switching back to stock for inspection.

You have a 500hp SUV, it's going to be loud when you punch is no matter what exhaust you have on it. I have heard Borla in person and the GTHaus sounds much better. They are similar when gthaus is closed but I still think gthaus is a much deeper sound idling and driving.
Thanks for your input. To be honest, when I first watched the video, the first reaction I had was "if this is closed mode, open will cause some eardrum damage..." but JDR8 seemed pretty adamant the truck was in closed mode in the video and his is even louder... so having never heard one "for real" I am really not in a position to doubt anyone on this subject!
Having an exhaust that has a deep, low rumble and remains mild decibel-wise, with the capacity to unleash sonic hell at the flick of a switch is a great combination... but to me, it needs to do both and well for the sort of price it commands. Otherwise, as very correctly suggested above, the Borla axle-backs are doing more than a decent job at a fraction of the price.

I have 2 constraints for my exhaust mod:
1) It needs to be a bolt-on / bolt-off design so I can revert to stock for mandatory inspections (so Borla axle backs that require to butcher the stock setup are off the list);
2) It cannot be too loud, as Swiss cops' ears are delicate... Joking aside, if stopped by the plod it's a "fine+revert to stock+present for inspection" deal, same as Downunder. Not fun. And costly.

A post on this forum from Chad (BlackOpsAutoworks) saying that people he knows that had had a Corsa-equipped WK1 were all disappointed by the WK2 iteration by Corsa (and stories of powdercoating flaking away) convinced me to avoid Corsa this time (I had a WK1 with Corsa before).

GTHaus sounded initially like a great option, with the choice of open/closed modes and high praises by those that installed it. I candidly expected closed mode to be relatively civilized and open to be brutal but this video finished to convince me that this exhaust is too loud even in closed mode (this is closed mode... and the truck looks great in matte black!):

So with 2 modes being "brutal" and "f.....g brutal!!", the steep price tag ends up being the last nail in the coffin.

Soooo...
This leaves a choice of Stainless Works, American Racing Headers and Kooks (cat-backs only, I am not changing to long tube headers because of no. 1) above...).

Any take on these three as a stand-alone cat-back?


I just want to make it clear on this Video it's OPEN MODE I know who's this is and confirmed it 110% with him yesterday. The exhaust is louder than OEM in closed mode yes.

We have a Borla coming off next week and a Gthaus going on I will finally get to hear them side by side within a few min. of each other.
IMO the Borla is just an O.K good sounding muscle car exhaust but falls short in one area I'll explain below.

My experience is this.
People who have the Borla and a midpipe call all the time they don't know what to do with the section that goes over the axel since Borla Atak don't come with that piece LOL. 99% of them dump the Borla and go with a complete system. Kooks,AR or GThaus.

Honestly GThaus is a really nice piece and from the comments an exotic sound. This is how I see it for the money it's high yes but lets compare apples to apples because comparing a GThaus to a Borla Atak is not the same. If you where to buy the finish and Quality somewhere else the finish would cost you 500.00 Min Cutouts installed with a Remote another 500.00 easy. Now slap that on top of a 1,300-1,600 Dollar anything your at 2,600.00 Min. Don't get me wrong if the cutouts weld quality and finish mean noting then go with AR or Kooks all solid sounding exhaust's systems.

With this said yes we have choices it's nice not to have just one choice. Now sound LOL this is ones personal opinion again it's really nice to have choices someone who hates the sound of a Borla can choose kooks and vise versa. I will do my best to try to answer all questions to the best of my knowledge and experience from other customers as always feel free to call or email me for a quicker response.

Re: GT Haus Meinschaft Exhaust for 2014 Wk2 Review

^ Thanks. I wanted to chime in and say no F-ing way that is closed mode but decided not to because I did not hear it from the owners mouth.

I believe the premium exhaust has different flanges, not 100% sure, maybe someone else can elaborate on this.

In closed mode, when you step into it to accelerate it's loud.. it's just quiet when you're driving normal. Well, perhaps quiet is the wrong word. Less loud than open mode..

I still am not convinced that's open mode, if you spoke to the owner then you'd know for sure of course. I'm merely saying in closed I can get to that note, or damn close to it. Tom can back me on this. The GT Haus is a BEAST

I haven't forgotten on doing video guys.. we are under snow right now. Supposed to be gone next week though.
