Welcome to the club!

1) The exhaust upgrade won't do too much w/a stock vehicle. A lot of people on here will just make a straight pipe instead, it'll lower the EGTs a little bit and it'll make the turbo whistle louder.

2) For the best plug and play tuning I would have to say it would be the Qloader. You can get it from KermaTDI. Basically they email you a custom tune, you load it on to the Qloader which plugs into the OBD2 port and it'll upload the tune to the ecu.

Another way would be to get it chipped by Rocketchip. Or you can get a tuning box from JSPerformance.

You dont would think just like on non TDI vws that a free'r flowing exhaust with better muffler and better flowing pipes would do min. increase in performance?? I would think it would be better for the turbo just like my VrT....

Something you need to realize about diesels is that it's not the increase in air that increases the power, it's the increase in fuel. The extra air/boost just cleans up the smoke and keeps temps down. Your girlfriend's TDI will benefit from some simple fueling mods (bigger injector nozzles are a cheap one, a tuning box is another option, and a chip is also a good option).

If you decide to mod her TDI, I'd suggest you take a bit of time and make sure the car's in top running condition first. Usual stuff like timing belt, intake cleaning, general maintenance, etc. Then take a minute to decide with your girlfriend what she wants to do as far as power goes, then make a plan and buy the parts you need (do some reading on here to figure out what parts you have to chose from). By the way, make sure that you budget for a new, upgraded clutch if you plan on any more than 2 power mods.

Good luck and welcome to TDI Club!

what the h+ll you taking about, "Its a beetle don't do anything to it" I also run a 2000 NB, have installed several mods and would stack it up to any tdi on the interstate for power and punch. It is only Audi TT platform with a different shell on top. A good mod NB will outperform any tdi on the road, (that should raise some response). Rocketchip is the way to go, harder to get but well worth the wait.

They aren't too hard to install. There's a pdf file around here on how to do it. It only took me about an hour to install mine.

I tool my NB to the local muffler shop and the 3" system, from before the cat to the rear was only $125.00. It will last as long as I have this car.
