Scirocco R "Resonator delete"

Postby LJChantler » Wed Apr 18, 2018 10:53 pm

Hi all,

Massive Scirocco fan here and after buying my first Rocco at the age of 19 (1.4 160ps) and spending every day after I sold it wishing I still had one, I decided to go all out and buy the R and I am in love with it...

I bought the car from a dealer up North and after having a bad experience with mechanical issues with my previous Scirocco, decided to take out their warranty that they offered.

I love the car but really want a little bit more noise from the exhaust without spending too much, which is why I am looking at getting the silencer cut out for a straight pipe, but I have a few questions....

-Could this void my warranty?

-Could it harm the car in any way? I assume not but just to be sure

-Does it matter which straight pipe I buy and would it be beneficial to spend more, or is it not necessary?

I'd really appreciate any advice I am given as I am new to modding and not very knowledgeable when it comes to mechanics etc....

Cheers guys.

Liam

Hi mate - resonator delete is only a small section of exhaust and a doddle to fit. As for warrenty voiding, it depends how arsy the dealer can be. If you are interested in a resonator delete I know a company (Progressive Parts) who do them (very high quality) and if theres enough interest they will develop one for the rocco R using my car as the test bed. Let me know if interested.

Cheers for the response.

Are you suggesting there is not a straight pipe available on the market specifically for the Scirocco atm? Does it even need to be specific?

There will be non resonated cat backs you can buy as for a resonator delete. The middle resonator is part of the back box system. And therefor the only real way to do a resonator delete without changing the back box is to get a custom exhaust builder to cut the resonator our and weld in a piece of straight pipe. Hope this helps.

Not quite, there's two silencers on the stock system, the centre silencer (underneath the centre console if you like) is the one commonly cut out and replaced. Simple and very cheap mod with a noticeable improvement
