The perfect way to unleash hidden horsepower in your VW MK7 Golf R or Audi 8v A3/S3 is to upgrade the restrictive factory downpipe with a smoother, higher flowing unit. Our ECS Tuning MQB 4Motion / MQB Quattro High Flow Catted Downpipe will increase performance and add a sophisticated growl to the exhaust note. Ideal performance is achieved through expelling exhaust gasses at maximum velocity through a larger diameter, freer flowing downpipe due to smoother bend radius, larger internal diameter, and a less-restrictive catalytic converter. We measured maximum gains of +20 ft/lbs of wheel torque and +6 AWHP on a VW MK7.5 Golf R (DSG) when equipped with our ECS Tuning Luft-Technik Intake System on stock software and through the OE catback exhaust.
Our High Flow Catted Downpipe Kit is designed to not only free up horsepower, independent of software changes, but to allow more aggressive ECU tuning which nets even further increases in engine output when combined with our Downpipe Kit. In-House Designed and Engineered with sophisticated 3D modeling software, our kit utilizes only premium materials and technologically advanced development techniques to deliver unmatched quality and reliability.
