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.

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.

MQB FWD downpipes come standard with our 300 cell metal cat, the same quality of cats used on all HPA twin turbo high performance vehicles.

Power and nice sounding

Love the extra power,lag is nearly zero and pulls hard from 2-6000rpm. The sounds are very nice.In normal drive mode cruising is pretty quiet. Under hood temps are down,=cooler air in. It's a good bit lighter also and less weight is more speed. Easy to install, fit was perfect and fit up very nicely with my Neuspeed cat back 70mm exhaust. 2015 vw gti.

Perfect with great sound.

I absolutely love this downpipe. The fitment is perfect on my GTI and I always get compliments. I have the catted and test pipe sections and both always get compliments on the sound. Install was straight forward and the quality and finish of the product is great. Very happy I chose to go with this downpipe for my car.
