All too often OEM components sacrifice performance in an effort to appeal to a wide variety of customers. In the case of the factory turbocharger, a turbo muffler is positioned at the compressor outlet and is designed to reduce engine bay acoustics. With our Turbo Muffler Delete Pipe Kit, the factory turbo muffler is removed and replaced with our straight-through delete pipe. This increases flow and turbocharger acoustics by creating a smooth transition between the turbo outlet and intercooler pipe inlet. CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum for smooth flow and lasting durability.

Last year, we sent VW Brand Ambassador Jamie Orr on a trip all across the country in a pre-production MK5 Sportwagen we affectionately called the Rallywagen where it ended in the Arctic Circle.
