My '13 WK2 V6 sounds LOTS better now, all for less than $100!
 
Took it to my favorite exhaust-system shop, Mighty Muf'ler in Phoenix, to see what I might do to add a little character to the sound. From the outside, it's a very quiet car. From the inside, it's so quiet I can hardly tell the engine is running.

The owner thought that replacing the center muffler would be complicated (= expensive); he suggested we start by removing the rear muffler. (He thought it was so large, it wasn't just an antiresonator.)

Off it came, and I test-drove it. Sounded great as near as I could tell, so on went a replacement pipe and the same oval tip I've bought many of over the years.

It now sounds GREAT--the exhaust noise inside the car is just loud enough to be heard, and outside, too, it sounds wonderful.

Interestingly, this system won't let me use outside-hosted images, nor can I upload images to this site. See

...for pics.


$94! I'm VERY happy.

Oh yes--it does NOT drone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:D

Hi jeffrey, great find. Would it be possible to take and upload a video so we can see what it sounds like?

Will it still pass emissions testing?

No the resonator just muffles the sound.

The correct answer to this question is 'yes, it will still pass emissions requirements, since we did nothing to the catalytic converters'.
