Hey guys, completely new to this. 
 

I have a 2015 7R currently running a custom Racingline stage 1 map and a Res delete, I wanna go that extra bit louder with the decat now. 
 

Been scouring online for days about all this talk about stage 2 which I really don’t want, I’m happy with the power - I just want the noise. 
 

I spoke to my tuner who is urging me to get stage 2 for £500 and then intakes etc which I really don’t want, he isn’t really giving me the option to “alter” my current map to support the decat. 
 

What can I do to get around this? Are their any other reputable companies that could alter my map for a decent price? 
 

If not I’m looking into just getting a custom backbox delete to make things simpler, but I’m not 100% on the sound. Any recommendations/suggestions? Thank you!!

From chatting to multiple tuners/exhaust manufacturers/members over the past couple of days you will never pass an mot without a cat, even with a sports cat I wouldn't bother taking it to VW as you need to rev the car before testing.

If it's just sound you're after then look into a Cat back exhaust? Loads of options with videos to suit your taste of sound. 

 

if you want a de-cat DP then i'm almost certain you will need to go stage 2, which is then recommended upgraded intake/intercooler

 

the cost of that along with updating your ECU tune + you would need TCU tune aswell. you're well into £1k's 

 

Also, wouldn't a de-cat DP with stock backbox have a shit tonne of drone?

How would your insurance be affected with a de-cat? 

You can't really get insurance with a de cat.

 

not really possible to insure a non road legal vehicle for use on the roads.

Have a chat with Nigel at BCS, I reckon you could fit one of his 200cell sports cat down pipes and then have the O2 sensor coded out without having to go stage 2.

Yeah that’s what I’m going for. Spoke to SGR Performance in Manchester who said it’ll be fine on stage 1, just fit the o2 sensor which will take out the EML light.

I just got the car MOT’d last week, will have sold it by the time the next MOT comes around :)

Looked at custom backbox deletes etc, even the exhaust shops have advised against it as they said it’ll be unbearably loud for a daily. 
 

With SGR they said the car will be fine at stage one with decat, but EML will be permanently on, hence why you fit the O2 sensor which effectively fools the car into thinking it has a cat and the EML light stays off 

 

as for stage 2, my upgrade is free with Racingline, would just have to buy the R600 intake for £300 if I did decide to do it, but tbh I don’t really want too as my stage 1 is a 1/1 custom map with extremely aggressive pops & bangs and they said it probably wouldn’t be the same as this on stage 2 as it won’t be custom

      I've have a (2012 Volkswagen Golf R 4 Cylinders F 2.0L MFI Turbo DOHC)(MK6 Golf R) that I've been having some serious clutch issues with. It's Stage 2+ with a turbo-back exhaust, upgraded Powercore intake, Haldex controller, and custom tune (350hp). With this much power, the original owner put in a FX400 8-puck ceramic clutch kit and lightweight flywheel (single mass).

      I had the misfortune of the slave cylinder failing 7 months ago, which got fluid on the clutch disk and caused it to slip. After contacting CM and following their guidelines, the clutch was cleaned and the flywheel was resurfaced. I prayed this was the end of the clutch issues (since clutch slips in VWs are something way too common for me ) but a week ago I had a slip in 6th, then 5th, and finally 4th.

      I've read online that the FX400 only lasts 20k miles on average. I daily my Golf R and seldom get the chance to track it. Though I'm sure this is one of the most common threads seen on this forum, I wanted to ask for suggestions on a new clutch kit and flywheel. I want to have something that's reliable and good for a daily driver while still being fun and performance-based. I'd say I'm on a tight budget, but I'm willing to put out the extra penny for something that is quality and won't fail.

      Thanks for the help guys

      Hi there,
       
      So I have a 2019 R which is ofcourse post GPF filter. I would like to modify the exhaust in any way to make is sound a little louder. I originally thought of a res delete but as far as I am aware the 2019+ models with the GPF filter do not have a resonator from factory. Am I right in saying this? Also if that is the case and there is no resonator to delete what are the other options to get a bit more sound? Or is the only option to get a new exhaust system fitted altogether. Thanks for any help,
       
      Joe.

      Hi all,
       
      I’m looking to install a downpipe and decat on my Mk7.5 (keeping cat-back standard). 
       
      Does anyone have any experience with either the Scorpion, Airtec or Milltek?
       
      Milltek is about £100 more expensive, but I can’t see any difference other than a more well known brand. 
       
      Thanks! 
      Alice 😊

      Hi guys,
      New to the forum and I have had my (totaly stock) Golf R for just under a month. Looking at making my first mods. I’m adding a Racingline Filter to the stock filter box and having a Res deleted. I have a Manual so I’m unsure as to what difference it will make to the sound?
      My question is, will I see a noticeable difference in the sound of the car? Also will it add a few more pops and bangs? I know the DSG it makes a big difference but not sure what the difference on a manual will be.
      Thanks.
