We are proud to release the new CTS Turbo 3″ Stainless Steel downpipe for the Gen 3 TSI EA888.3 motors. Unfortunately, the factory downpipe that comes as standard equipment in your car was designed for anything but performance. The factory downpipe severely restricts exhaust flow and therefor has adverse effects on horsepower, especially once your car is “chipped”. The CTS Turbo downpipe will allow for your exhaust gases to flow smoothly, freeing up the additional ponies that you want, all while look amazing. Highlights of our downpipe include CNC machined turbine discharge (downpipe) flange, mandrel bent 3″ stainless steel tubing, modular design making installation of the downpipe simple and straight forward, smooth transitions allowing for optimal exhaust gas flow.
Precision fabrication, unparalleled quality and great price point all make the CTS Turbo 1.8T/2.0T FWD Downpipe a must-have for any VW enthusiast that values performance and their pocketbook.
