Thanks for the info Rudi. I’ll look locally.
Is the purpose of the turbo muffler to quiet the turbo air noise down simular to the air cleaner sock to calm the intake noise?This is a great upgrade, its essentially a turbo muffler delete. This reduces the amount of air turbulence upon exit of the turbo charger. These have existed in the VW market for quite sometime.
Well done! Something I had always wanted to make for this car.
So, do you notice any change in turbo noises?Installed mine yesterday, I have access to a lift at a friends house. The process took just over 1 hour and this allowed for some "Cooling" time. After I looked at the Pictures provided by Rudi, I just followed his instructions. I also re used the gasket. Thanks Again.
I was already leaning towards getting one just to support Rudi for making parts for us, but this is a win win as I was hoping for more turbo noises with the removal of the resonators. I will go ahead an place my order. Thanks.Slight change in sound to my ears. Hard to describe but seems to be more of a "woosh", thinking more Air Flow exiting the turbo. I actually like the new sound better and really like the "Turbo" sound, so an improvement IMO. Hope this Helps
You have the broken tab but your internal baffle is still in place and not loose or rattlesI just finished installing the new pipe. It took about 2 hours to install. I installed the Eurocompulsion intermediate hose at the same time. It was slightly a pain to get the hose and new pipe aligned.
As @Call me Al and @Gale both noted broken pieces, I also had the broken support bracket. Although mutiple owners have had that piece broken, it was still very firmly attached and supporting the pipe. I see no reason to swap to Rudi"s design unless you track the car hard.
Great product as always Gale!
PS:. I haven't had a chance to drive, but I highly doubtful that I will hear more turbo noise.

Thanks for the clarification..... I would be looking for increased flow efficiency not noise. If I don't really need to replace it and gains are not enough then not wanting to go thru the trouble at the moment. But still eyeballing it.@ehagerty - Sorry I wasn't clear. Yes, the tab was broken, but all internals looks just fine. It is why I make the recommendation that the pipe should only be replaced if you do heavy tracking. Plus I doubt that you will get much more turbo noise when using the stock air box. If owners want more turbo noise, buy the Eurocompulsion V2 Intake.
