Straight pipe/Test pipe help!

1777 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  6speed
I just bought my first car, a Vw 2001 gti vr6, but i bought it very cheap from a guy who used to use it for racing and the car is really loud. I don't know much about cars but i think it has a a straight/test pipe installed which i could get in trouble for driving it in the streets so I've heard. Can any one tell me what my options are? How much will it cost to get all that fixed?

Also the guy gave me some piece he welded off the car. He said it made the car faster taking that off.

Ill post pictures/ a video tomorrow if someone can please tell me what the hell it is.

The noise level isn't really going to matter if your state has emissions and requires a cat. The part he "welded off" is probably the cat. Just get the cat welded back on. Probably your cheapest option. And that will quiet it down too.
