    Don't do it. Had it on my last car which was a 1.9 and tbh the trubo noise lost it's appeal.

    Not a V6, but this was my old car, a 5pot Alfa diesel with a straight-thru. TBO, the V6 sounds better, Milltek does a great one for the Audi A5 tdi and it's amazing snound.

    Celes link sounds quite nice

    keep your eyes peeled tomorrow and you can get comparing, the turbo noise is subtle but the roar is immense
