So the pipe is basically a megaphone for my engine? And in doing so it restricts airflow to my turbo? So if I were to take the pipe off would I just need to plug the holes? I haven't really taken a close look at it yet under my hood so I'm not really sure where it goes. I'm pretty much opposed to "noise makers" and the like. My fast is all go, no show. >If you bypass the pipe takes out some restriction
Hey dudes i was checking thi site earlier do you think this is a good buy. Its called the y-delete pipe, i think it takes out the ESS on our fasts, im thinking of getting it, i want to hear my fast and not muffle it, and as said by kondziela id rather have the extra air go to my turbo, then to a sound can,lol. tell me what you think.http://www.fixxtuning.com/mk5_gti.html, check it out, you'll find it in the engine section.Give me some feedback, i wish to know if there is anything to plug after the installation, thanx guys, laterz.kondziela79 said:Yes it is like a megaphone for your engine. Volkswagon calls it the ESS pipe, Engine Sound System. ABD makes a bypass for it, or you can buy the stock throttle pipe for the Audi A3. It has the same 2.0T FSi, but with out the sound maker in it. If you bypass or replace the part all the extra air going to the sound maker will then go to your turbo. I think I would like more air in my turbo befor I dress up my engine compartment... I guess it is personnel preference.
