Product Details


We are proud to release the new CTS Turbo 3.5" Stainless Steel downpipe for the MK7 GTI. 

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.

Are you worried about emissions and inspections?  Don't worry, our optional catalytic converter from Magnaflow should satisfy prying eyes.

  • T304 Stainless Steel flanges
  • 100% TIG Welded
  • T304 Stainless Steel O2 bung
  • Stainless Steel Clamps 
  • Great Sound even with factory exhaust
  • Bolts up to your factory exhaust

  • MK7 GTI w/CtS Turbo Downpipe

    This part is incredible. The install was straight forward, it took a bit of time but ensure you buy the right jack stands and floor jacks. I followed the instructions posted but had to take off one part to completely remove the stock downpipe. Ensure that if you are struggling with the O2 sensor that you use WD40 and an O2 sensor removal kit. Once everything is all said and done the install was easy. Before turning on your car, be sure to update the software. I used Uni Stage 2 and DSG stage 2 tune. I am running the crack and pop file and it is awesome. I just bought the AWE track exhaust to go with this part. You will love the added speed, power, and noise. Highly recommonded.

  • Well Worth it!!

    This downpipe is amazing! I got it on sale and the install was super easy. It sounds perfect and I still have the stock exhaust in the rear, I can’t wait to get the rest of the CTS exhaust system. Don’t hesitate to buy it!

  • 150% worth the money

    When I first looked at this downpipe I was unsure about it as far as how loud it would make my gti or if the high flow car would pop a check engine light on me. Once I got the old downpipe out and started reassembly it went in super easy. I I’ve had it on now for a couple weeks and it’s not necessarily really loud, but it does at a nice deep tone to the exhaust. I bought the o2 sensor spacer in conjunction with the downpipe and installed it. Couple weeks later still no check engine light(knock on wood). If you’re on the fence with this downpipe I’d definitely say buy it. Solid product, easy install. For anyone with a mk7.5 gti 2.0 TSI this will save you hours of fighting with the stock downpipe. Removed the o2 sensed located after the first cat first then snake it out the bottom.

  • CTS 3.5 downpipe

    Great design. Turbo spool and sound greatly improved. Awsome product for a stage 2 tune. You will not be disappointed and well worth the money compared to other similar products. Grab yourself a dogbone for improved traction as your going to need it.

  • Utley

    Great sound, no CEL(probably because I got the spacer). The responsiveness is definitely there too. I paid to have it installed.

  • Great product and shipping.

    This downpipe is exactly what my mk7 GTI needed. Build quality is top notch, and fitment is perfect. I'm loving the increased exhaust note and faster spool. Shipping was excellent as well.

  • Easy enough, good sound, perfect fit to stock ext.. You don't like swap out in 45 mins.

  • Good Quality and Sound

    Excelent price. The construction is fine, looks great and sounds awesome with a remus exhaust and full 2.5" tubes.

  • Amazing sound and power!

    Car is loud now with the stage 2 software and this down pipe. Went on very easy. Old pipe was alot harder to take off then installing this new one.

    Overall very happy. Only this is with stage 2 tires spin like instantly. Hahaha

  • Just buy it

    I watched every mk7 Gti downpipe video on YouTube for weeks before buying this, wish I just did it sooner, fitment was perfect and shipped in 24 hours right to my door.

    Shipping 10/10
    Sound 10/10
    Price 10/10
    Butt dyno 10/10

    Car sounds like a beast and pulls like a train w/ stage 2 unitronic ecu software paired with this downpipe. I highly recommend getting new tires before going stage 2 because the wheel spin is insane.

  • Got this pipe during a sale and was somewhat concerned about getting a CEL as I am currently not tuned. Picked up the Vibrant J bend O2 extender on Amazon in hopes of eliminating the chance of being emissions noncompliant and wow! This pipe sounds great, looks great, and fits very well. The vibrant J bend O2 extender with the medium insert has worked, never seen a CEL and my butt dyno says I certainly gained some horses and torque. Thanks Modded Euros, packaged well, great fast shipping and a quality product. I will come to you guys for more goodies in the future.

  • Awesome. Great quality. Perfect fit. Sounds even better

  • fitment is perfect and my GTI sounds sweet now. thanks Modded Euros for fast shipping too

  • have this with a cts catback and love it. nice quality setup
