need help. catback exhaust options..

I have 2016 Golf R Manual with APR intake and small mods.. and after putting 10,000 miles.. now i am looking into upgrade my exhaust setup ( catback first and then add downpipe)..

Below are the options.. (APR vs. Armytrix vs. Billy boat vs. Milltek vs. AWE vs. iPE)..

What do you guys think? iPE exhaust sounds really good but they are like $3500 +

#1, what's your budget?
#2, how loud do you want to be?

Honestly, you're doing it backwards. Downpipe first, then if that isn't enough sound for you, do the catback. At least this way you'll actually get some power out of it.

For my setup, I agree with this. I have a catless downpipe with the OEM catback and love it.

Plus, Iím super stealthy with that and running E85 lol

Downpipe first unless you race a class that won’t allow it. You’ll just need an o2 spacer to avoid CEL without a proper tune

Here’s a CBE I built for a customer who wasn’t ready to move up to a higher class in SCCA, also didn’t like the look or extra weight of four tips

Yeah I heard some people say the stock clutch canít really hold up that much power with down pipe
