The new CTS Turbo 3.5" Stainless Steel downpipe for the MK7 Golf R/8V Audi S3.
Unfortunately, the factory downpipe that comes as standard equipment in your car was designed for anything but performance.
The factory downpipe severely restricts exhaust flow and therefor has adverse effects on horsepower, especially once your car is "chipped".
The CTS Turbo downpipe will allow for your exhaust gases to flow smoothly, freeing up the additional ponies that you want, all while look amazing.
Highlights of our downpipe include CNC machined turbine discharge (downpipe) flange, mandrel bent 3" stainless steel tubing, modular design making installation of a catalytic converter simple and straight forward, smooth transitions allowing for optimal exhaust gas flow.

Way too loud with an aftermarket Catback
I received the order well packaged and the Downpipe looks well made and top quality. I made the mistake of not thoroughly researching the sound this thing made with a non-oem 3" Catback from Borla. My Catback already made a nice sound with some crackles. But after I put this DP on, it was like Bruce Banner turning into Hulk. It's ridiculously loud to the point I am embarrassed to drive my beloved A3 Quattro. My car vibrates so much more and I need to drive so slow to avoid accelerating in my neighborhood at night to avoid waking everyone. I am going to try and put an Ultra Quiet resonator. If that doesn't work I will have to take the CTS DP off and put back the OEM and try and sell the CTS. It literally gives me a headache from the unbearable drone this DP creates. I think this would go well with the OEM Catback.
CTS Golf R Downpipe
Great product, fast shipping, awesome sound. Fitment was perfect.
Fit perfectly, no leaks no CEL and the turbo spools up way faster. The power and lower RPM has increased as well! Great product!!
High Quality and Great Sound
I purchased the CTS Catted Downpipe for my 16 S3 and the manufacturing is top notch. The factory DP is a little tricky getting out but the CTS DP slides right in and bolts up nicely with no alignment issues! I was even more impressed with the sound...I have the factory catback and resonator but with the CTS DP I couldn't be more happy with the sound of the car now! The DP along with the Stage 2 Unitronic ECU/TCU tune is an awesome combination. Great product and I highly recommend!
