Titus69Dont go just straight pipe all the way through, get a cat and resonator, you still need some back pressure plus the resonator will help deepen the sound
JakeSmithHondas don't make the whiny noise, it's the ricer fart cans that people associate with Hondas that make them sound like a pissed off bumblebee.
Every Jetta with a straight pipe is going to sound pretty crappy, any 4 cylinder (minus subies with UELs) is going to sound pretty similar.
If you are trying to go for the best sound rather than the most noise, you will probably want to get a high flowing cat, resonator, and muffler, and some larger diameter piping. If you can source all of these parts individually you can have a pretty great sound for relatively cheap and shouldn't cost to much to have put together at an exhaust shop.
You could just get a higher flowing resonator and it would sound decent
Titus69Yeah a kid from my schools jetta is straight piped and it sounds like shit. Most Hondas do sound bad with any aftermarket exhaust, the only good NA four cyls that sound good are 4g63s and subarus if done right.
basedjasei cut the exhaust off of my mk2 jetta about 6 inches past the cat and it sounded so shitty. backpressure was awful. that gurgling sound of burning gas in the exhaust wasnt nice. i'd suggest getting a high flow cat, wider pipes, and a resonator. your ears will appreciate it.
dingusDo you think if I just left the stock cat on and got some wider pipes it would still sound shitty?
basedjaseMeh. It'll be deeper most likely. Straight pipe it after the cat with a decent looking tip on the end could be aight.
