The APR downpipe features an investment-cast inlet, with a port matched v-band flange, creating an ideal flow path for exhaust gasses exiting the turbocharger. By matching the already oversized turbo outlet, the downpipe is able to maintain exhaust gas velocity, improving performance with minimal variances in cross-sectional area due to the strategic use of cast parts. Furthermore, the cast inlet allows for excellent packaging, satisfying other design criteria while maintaining a larger and constant cross-sectional area compared to mandrel bent tubing built to similar specifications. The end results it simple: Smooth exhaust flow and maximum performance!
The downpipe’s piping is upgraded to attractively-brushed, straight-through and mandrel-bent 76mm tubing, dwarfing the small 65mm factory system. Furthermore, components visible from the engine bay are tumbled for a more attractive finish. A CNC laser cut bracket provides a strong and accurately positioned mounting point to take the weight of the downpipe off the turbocharger, and the internally-corrugated flex section gives the downpipe the flex it needs under engine movement. Finally, the downpipe uses T304L stainless steel components that are TIG welded together with argon back-purging, ensuring the system not only looks great on the inside and out, but stands the test of time.
