Default Question about my jetta 98'

Hey anyone here own a jetta of around the same year that put an exhaust on there's? I ask because I just put a new muffler on it, it purrs pretty sweet but it's not all that loud, mostly because the car has two mufflers stock and I only replaced one, my question is has anyone taken out the muffler farther back in the piping with just pipes to make the end muffler louder? How much did it improve? I'm thinking if I do this it will make a world of difference. I am going to have the pipe bent and put it by a professional because they can measure it and get the angles for the best flow, and it shouldn't be too expensive because I'm only gunna replace where the muffler is, I'd say mayb 3 feet of pipe max, it's just bending it.


Any ideas suggestions?

If you can weld, make your own cat-back. Get some U-bends, some straight pipes, a couple of mufflers, and youre good to go! You will need to measure things out carefully, in 3 dimensions. Make it as straight as possible for less resriction. It should come out cheaper than an aftermarket cat-back.

Well that's what I mean, I already and a muffler and the system is pretty straight forward, it's just I need that 2nd muffler out of there and a properly brent pipe, and a guy who specializes in it can get a better angle that I could going to auto zone or something and looking for pipe myself.

What I did to make a Corsa louder was putting an aftermarket air filter on that with a new back box made it sound like a scooby turbo, Since the jetta is not much bigger than a golf you should be ablt to tune it like a golf, about getting the 2nd back box out you will need the pipe cut just where the y piece starts then get a new pipe to join it up this shouldn't be more than a few inches and should'nt cost a lot

IMO the Golf is a Jetta hatchback, or vice versa.
