I am sure this has been asked a lot but I am trying to find a good option for my exhaust. I love the way the Monza set up sounds but It is too noisy for anything beyond a spin around town. Does anyone have any input on a good exhaust for ~400 dollars?

Just cut the mufflers off and install a/or 2 good turbo mufflers instead. <$100

'S all for now

Honestly, the stock exhausts paired with a nice set of headers is the way to go IMO for the early cars. They flow plenty and make a great sound without any cabin drone. Plus you can be assured that they will fit. My mk3 with a 4-1 header and stock everything else sounded great with the roof down, but remained quiet with the roof up. I wouldn't have upgraded if my original didn't rust apart.

The later cars I've heard have really quiet exhausts though.

I took the stock muffler off my 79 and replaced with a 17" glasspack. Cost me about $35 bucks.,1505099

The Mk II already has the best exhaust manifold on it if its still got the stock system. I have a Falcon stainless steel exhaust on my Mk I that I like. Nice sounds, but not too loud. The pipes don't seal the best as it comes. Needs some of the limey "jointing paste".

Be careful of the cheap "Turbo Mufflers". I have a 2" Thrush Turbo Muffler with a short Cherry Bomb as a resonator. The sound volume is a little more than I'd like (I use noise cancelling earbuds for road trips), but it's the "quality" of the sound that's truly disappointing. Some folks have thought I'd crammed a V-8 into little Rocinante. I really miss that British, Straight-6 Rasp that I hear from other cars. I'll try a MagnaFlo, FlowMaster or DynoMax next time to see if there's any difference.
