you will not get the same sound as an sti on the gli as yours does not have a turbo which makes a difference to the noise.

best bet is fit a back box and see how you like it.

it isnt just a case of bolting a turbo onto your engine as the specs of the motors are completely different.

you would be better off getting a turbo car to start and modifying from there, either that or dont set your sights too high with the current car.
