I installed this downpipe (with resonator) by myself over a weekend with my 2014 Jetta sedan up on jack stands. Total time from start to finish was about 11 hours. The kit does not include instructions so print them from Rawtek lol. I did not need to disconnect the dog bone mount or the subframe. The passenger CV axle needs to be disconnected from the inner flange, but not from the wheel. Yes, the DPF is a pain to get out. On its way out, the mounting bracket catches on everything from the axle, to AC lines to the exhaust tunnel heat shield . Keep a pry bar between the bracket and the heat shield to help pull and wiggle the DPF out. I did not sawzall anything.
The buzzeken delete fits perfectly and took less than an hour to install. My car runs and sounds awesome. The audible turbo whine is a plus. I also notice my coolant temp and EGT's are much lower. No more WTF moments related to regens. Your TDI will repay you with reliability - DO IT!
We sawzalled the dpf and piping and without having to remove rh axle or subframe. Wasn’t too bad at all. Once it was out the new parts went in super easily and everything lined right up. Sounds perfect and can here a little turbo whistle when driving. When you hammer it gives a nice rumble and turbo sound.(we left the stock muffler in place)
Job install went quickly and smoothly at Rodriguez Shop, all of the components fit like a glove. Malone software tune for engine and transmission took the longest, but it's my cars ECU that is the problem not the shop. The modification was the fix the car needed for VW diesel fix killed my horse power, torque and fuel millage 28mpg city and 36mpg highway. VW diesel also fixed removed my old Malone Tune too. Now it's peppier than before, horse power, torque and fuel. Cars on board computer said 55 mpg and I drove at 73mph from Georgia to Florida. But I used my calculator the average was stop and go, no traffic and some slow downs, and sometime gunning to pass at 85mph and the average fuel was 44mpg. A little bit of diesel smell but no black smoke and tile pipe clean and bumper cover around tile pipe clean too. This is the second time I use Rodriguez Shop and Malone Tuning. I recommend them, give them a call or e-mail them.
Very impressed with the quality given the price. Everything fit as it should. Went with the no resonator or cat option on a 2012 Golf and noise is actually really nice!
Having spent months reading on all the difference between the two i ran across a number of comments that stated how good the fit was of these pipes compared to the Rawtek ones. You get a lot of variation from vehicle to vehicle and for people to report such good fit i though why not save 500$ and go with something that looks to work just as described. The Rawtek is not a bad pipe by any means and yes its beautiful to look at with its welds etc however at the cost and considering that no one will ever see it in the back of the engine to me it wasnt worth the extra cash. My Buzzken DP fit perfectly after the DPF removal and i couldnt be happier with the quality of the pipe itself. Great welds good quality steel and all the additional fit past the turbo was of top notch. I would recommend this to anyone looking to save some cash but not give up on quality.
This thing really is really nice quality. Very solid!
Very impressed with the quality of this downpipe and midpipe. DPF removal wasn't as challenging as I anticipated. I opted for no cat or resonator with the stock muffler in the back. I will be installing a catback soon as well. Very impressed with the simplicity of this product. Everything fit perfectly.
First, removing the OEM system is really awful. It took me 6-7 hours. I was able to only cut it in one place (right up against the DPF), as well as removing every joint. I didn't have to loosen the subframe at all, but I did have to remove the inside flange of the passenger axle. Removing all the electrical sensors (EGTs and O2 sensors) and DP sensors / lines is a pain too. You'll only be reusing the #2 EGT (orange connector mounted to the DOC / DPF) and the O2 sensor between the turbo and DOC.
Once all the original stuff is removed, installing the new system was very easy. It took me about 1-1.5 hours, and didn't require anything get moved out of the way. Fitment was also perfect. No leaks after the first time, and no funky looking attachment points. It isn't a great quality stainless steel, but it's at least as good as the OEM stainless steel exhaust.
I have no regrets not getting the Rawtek system - which is twice the price. I recommend this to anyone.
As a sidebar note, I opted for the resonator. I honestly don't think the car is any noisier inside than it was before. Pared with the Malone Stage 2 tune (which makes for a smoother running engine), I'd even go as far to say it's a smidgen quieter. I am using the original cat back system.
Went in no problem, extracted old DPF on jack stands without dropping sub frame or removing axle. Only fitment issue is the front exhaust hanger doesn't want to line up correctly, but still very well built. AARodriguez Corp. were great to deal with, good communication and fast to ship order. Have done business with them and the past and will do more in the future.
