I posted this on Audiforums

Now, I DID have a bad cat mind you so the stock exhaust sounds like ass. 2 new cats, the vibrant exhaust set me back $387 and the piping back and labor cost $214 (out the door)

My CE light is on too. Code P0161

I'm considering getting a resonator. Comments?

I revved the car but the vibrant muffler was loud enough to max out the mic...

Now that you mention it, it does sound like a VR6 now.

It is the same size motor and same manufactuer... It should sound the same.. Know how that is? BADASS...

I love the 2.8, but damn there's no mods lol.

I am liking the sound. It IS quite loud though.

FYI: Same size, different engine layout - 12 degree V6 in the VR6 (IIRC) and a 90 degree V6 on the 12v.

Just move the camera back so the mic doesn't die lol. I was actually interested in a jetta gli vr6 because my neighbour has one with an aem cai and a magnaflow catback it's among the sickest sounding cars I've heard. Then I realized I can get an audi with awd and a very similar motor for the same price.

I recorded that clip with the laptop in the same spot. I'll get an out of car rev this weekend. In car sounds amazing at 6k.

i'm impressed that your beeper that reminds you that your keys are in the ignition still works.

have you made any recordings after you installed the new resonator?

I did actually but I was a dumbass and recorded over the part on the outside of the car without the resonator. I blame my GF's shitty video cam battery... damn thing worked for 2 minutes...

stock exhaust is so hawt right now.... But the vibrant, sounds pretty damn good. Sometimes I wish I had a 2.8 just for the sound. The supersprint system sounds good on it too.
