Do NOT do the header then, that will definitely make you louder and in need of a tune. "A bit louder than stock" would be deleting the muffler and having a pipe welded in from the axle back section. That would be the cheapest way to see if you want to get any louder before having a catback setup shipped to your door and installed by you or paying a shop/buddy.Was wondering opinions on whether I should install the zzp headers or go with a catback exhaust instead? I have the 14, w/ 1.8l looking for a bit louder than stock but not to loud to where it's obnoxious.
Got ahead of myself there... Welcome to the forums.
If you are able to hold off and make the Lordstown trip in May, you shal see/hear most exhaust combinations in person. A good deal will be 1.4T but there is a handful of 1.8 with exhaust setups too.
