It’s a car for the go-getters and it is precisely designed to meet the needs of discerning car lovers who know exactly what they want in a car. It’s the Volkswagen Golf GTI and it comes with everything that makes a car stand out: power, styling and plenty of performance goodness. But can you sustain this impressive display of might over the years or does your Golf GTI already show signs of wear and age? If it does, don’t worry. You can easily restore it to its former glamour and even supersede its best performance during its best years. This you do by installing an aftermarket exhaust system in place of the stock exhaust system. Stock exhaust systems are inhibitive in design and block oxygen from reaching the engine cylinders where it can be converted into energy. Quite different in design and operating mechanism, custom Volkswagen Golf GTI Exhaust Systems open up the passageway for exhaust gases to leave the engine and thus create room for oxygen to make its way into the engine cylinders for power generation.

It’s a study in contrast really and the custom Golf GTI exhaust system wins hands down. Installing one ensures that your engine power output is increased by up to 10%, a percentage that can be easily doubled by pairing the exhaust system with a performance header and muffler. Overall, custom GTI exhaust systems also enhance fuel efficiency by improving the engine’s ability to burn fuel cleanly and economically. As the car’s fuel consumption goes down, so do your fuel expenses. At the same time, your fuel mileage increases so that you drive a longer distance on the same amount of fuel as before. Custom Golf GTI exhaust systems sound so much better than the stock exhaust. Smooth, deep and well-tuned, their reverberation is far more powerful than the stock exhaust note.
