Bolt-on more horsepower, torque and boost response!

When designing the 2.0T FSI & TSI motors VW thankfully increased the size of the K03 turbocharger. Unfortunately they also designed the downpipe like a brick wall. Rule #1 in turbocharger theory is reduce backpressure at the turbo discharge. With the factory downpipe installed, exhaust gases exit the turbo and wastegate only to meet a dense catalytic converter. By increasing the size of the piping to 3" and moving the catalytic converter further away from the turbo, exhaust gases can mix naturally and develop momentum before being filtered through the catalytic converter. The result is useable power and torque throughout the powerband, quicker throttle and boost response.

The modular nature of the 42DD 3" downpipe allows for changes to be made at any time without cutting or welding. Is your aftermarket cat-back exhaust too loud? the 42DD offset pipe can be replaced with a resonated pipe at any time. 

42 Draft Designs downpipes include a high flow Magnaflow catalytic converter.
