Hello!
Does anyone know any websites that make catless downpipes for ahu tdi’s because I’ve been trying to look around and couldn’t find anything.

Darkside
Kerma
literally any decent muffler shop can make you whatever you want.
Your in CA so its extremely unlikely your going to get any of that though.

yep, unfortunately Cali is like that but the muffler shops usually don't have any restrictions to what you want, im guessing they range from $150-$300 on kerma and darkside? ill check it out

no worries, it took me a while to try and find them but i had to ask forums to make it easier for my self. my ahu just hit 222400. running strong i have a muffler and res. delete and there is no noise difference which kind of sucked when i did the delete but i am definitely getting more coal out tho not a lot just the perfect amount and slightly better throttle response

This will fit the following vehicles with the engine codes listed below:

VW Golf Mk2 - 1Z / AHH / AHU 90

VW Golf Cabriolet - 1Z / AHH / AHU 90

VW Golf Mk3 - 1Z / AHH / AHU / ALE 90
I think it also says vento and then the ahh 1z and the AHU engine code so I’m guessing I’ll be good with buying that one right?
