Maximizing engine performance starts with engine heat management. Turbo charged applications generate extreme amount of surface heat at the turbo charger that radiates directly into the aluminum head reducing the engine ECU’s ability to advance ignition and fueling maps due to detonation. Besides strict global emissions standards resulting in restrictive catalytic converters being installed, oem engineers must factor global restrictions on minimum clearances for front impact crash test results when packaging and designing the factory turbo downpipes.

Each HPA downpipe application is designed around emissions compliance requirements, thermal radiation/contact surface clearances and engine ecu software framework. The calibrators drive the hardware demands to ensure that the dimensions and catalytic converter requirements are calibrated within the spectrum of the ecu’s capabilities. The goal is to reduce the heat at the mounting surface of the turbocharger to the aluminum head. When the balance of heat reduction has been realized, the calibrators can create a fuel and ignition mapping that will ensure that the tailpipe gases are clean and the boost levels can be raised. Heat is the enemy of HP and even your stock mapping will benefit form a more fluid design of exhaust gas discharge.

The average OEM 63mm downpipe diameter coupled with a restrictive catalytic converter and varying angles don't allow for ideal flow specifications and result in higher back pressure at the turbo forcing it to work harder and generate excessive heat.

HPA’s resulting 3” downpipe is a fabrication assembly designed around functionality and durability and proudly manufactured in Canada. .063wall T304L stainless mandrel tubing is precision tig welded and Argon back purged for an ultra clean look on the exterior and a perfect clean weld on the interior. Our CNC formed hanger and laser cut flanges mate this assembly to the chassis and will withstand the thermal conditions the turbo will generate. Our flex couplings feature an internal stainless steel interlock liner that facilitates smooth flow of high temperature exhaust gases.

HPA EA888 Gen 1 and 2 street downpipes come standard with our 300C high flow cats while the new MQB GTI and Golf R come standard with our 300 cell metal cat, the same quality of cats used on all HPA twin turbo high performance vehicles.

MQB (AWD) 2.0T Downpipe - Love the fit and finish, sounds amazing too.

Love the downpipe, I am glad I went with HPA and they are Canadian to boot. Highly recommend their downpipe if you're looking to tune your car. I also had my downpipe ceramic coated, and it was very well done and couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you HPA!

Oustanding Quality and Sound

So glad that I purchased my down pipe during their recent sale, no regrets at all. Quality is outstanding, the nicest down pipe I have ever seen. The fit and finish was perfect, with no issues installing it on my MK 7 Golf R. The sound is perfect even with the stock back end exhaust, no drone or anything. Even without the CAT. Highly recommend this down pipe everything is included and the top notch quality and engineering. Even all the accessories included are top notch. Thank you HPA!

Better than OEM

OEM fitment, VW Technician installed. Instantly felt the gains and much better response. Paired with a tune its the best way to go. Don't waste your time on an inferior product to just pull it out and fix - replace your OEM with equal or better!
