We are proud to release the new CTS Turbo 3.5″ Stainless Steel race downpipe for the EVO4 FWD (front wheel drive) platform, fitment for MK8 VW GTI/8Y Audi A3. 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 tuned. 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 a 3.5″ cast downpipe flange, mandrel bent 3″ stainless steel tubing and factory mounting locations.
Precision fabrication, unparalleled quality and a great price point all make the CTS Turbo MK8 FWD downpipe a must-have for any driver that wants maximum performance and sound!
Specifically designed to fit MK8 EVO4 front-wheel-drive platform with Garrett turbocharger
Cast stainless steel downpipe flange
Removable reducer to fit factory exhaust
Factory mounting location

Great sound even with factory exhaust, no drone!!
