This is the real deal made with 14 gauge stainless steel which is the thick stuff.
Cheaper models use paper thin 20 gauge piping that will last a year or two Tops.
Made with all high quality OBDII certified parts.
WILL pass emissions in 49 states and will not cause any CEL Check Engine Lights or Error Codes.
3/8" thick flanges that will not warp like the cheap ones.
Uses a better catalytic converter than the downpipes that sell for $900+.
High quality stainless steel welds that will not rust out or crack like the knock-offs.
If you’re looking to get more power out of your “R”, a high-flow performance downpipe should be the first step you should take to get there. Not only will our performance downpipe free up a ton of back pressure from your stock pipe, it will maximize power gains from other modifications that you already have or plan to add. It will improve throttle response, torque, and horsepower (typically around 17-22 HP and 20-25 lbs/ft of torque). By reducing the exhaust backpressure, customers have noticed that our downpipes will provide a smoother flow of exhaust gases creating quicker turbo spool, better performance, response, and a better exhaust tone.
The Stock Downpipe Comparison:
The turbo exhaust port on the "R" has in inside diameter of 76mm. The factory downpipe has an inside diameter of just 68mm at the inlet and reduces down to an outer diameter of 62mm at the first bend. This causes spent exhaust gases and heat to back up into the turbo housing. Not only does this extreme heat backing up contribute to shortened turbo life and cracked housings, it's the biggest performance bottleneck you'll find in these cars.
With that being said, you can see that the factory downpipe reduces power producing flow that our downpipe unleashes. Our turbo flange starts the system out at 81mm and then the piping maintains 76mm throughout the rest of the system with its factory mandrel bent smooth transition piping. It will then match up with the stock exhaust or any other performance cat-back system. Its neck does not taper down to a 62mm like the stock one does; it maintains its 3” diameter throughout the entire bend.
Our downpipes are manufactured with the highest level of quality to outlast the life of your car. Downpipe components include fully mandrel bent 3” stainless steel piping, dual layered stainless steel flex pipe, stainless steel welding, stock oxygen (O2) sensor wire lengths, and stock hanging points. Our downpipes utilize a stainless steel metal monolith 3-way catalytic converter. This super high-flow cat is designed with the latest Metal Monolithic technology which is much more resistant to the effects of heat and vibration than traditional ceramic bricks. Metal monolith cats are expensive, but well worth it as you’ll find them in most quality aftermarket performance downpipes. Stage 2 software and a performance cat-back exhaust are recommended to unleash the pipe's full potential. 49 state legal and OBDII Compliant which means you will NOT get any Check Engine Lights. Not street legal in CA.
High Temperature Coatings are designed to improve the performance of exhaust systems. These coatings prevent corrosion, increase durability and provide thermal insulation. Ceramic coating is an excellent thermal barrier. By doing so, ceramic coating reduces under-hood heat temperatures which will increase horsepower. Ceramic coating colors include silver and black.
