PROFILE
ARM Motorsports MK6 GTI Catted Downpipe boosts power up to +20whp and +30wtq. It also improves turbo spool on your 2.0T, allowing your GTI to hit boost sooner at lower rpm.

WHY WOULD YOU WANT A CATTED DOWNPIPE?
Great Question! There are multiple reasons why you would want a catted downpipe for your GTI versus a catless downpipe system.

  • PASSING EMISSIONS: One of the biggest benefits of a catted downpipe is it increases your chances of passing emissions.* The catalytic converter in the ARM GTI catted downpipe is significantly less restrictive than the OEM catalytic converter, allowing it to increase the power of your 2.0T while still going to work on burning up those exhaust gases that don't get along with the environment and the EPA.
  • NO FOUL SMELLS: Well, at least from your exhaust. The catted downpipe destroys most of the elements in the exhaust gas commonly associated with catless downpipes which produce strong exhaust fumes. If you've owned a vehicle with a catless exhaust you likely know the odor associated with a catless downpipe. The ARM GTI catted downpipe eliminates the smell of many exhaust fumes above that which you would experience from the OEM downpipe.
  • EXHAUST SOUND: Many enthusiasts prefer the sound of a catted downpipe over the standard catless downpipe. Having the catalytic converter in the downpipe of your GTI reduces some of the high-pitch rasp commonly associated with catless systems. It almost acts similar to a resonator in the way it effects the acoustics of the exhaust note.

CONSTRUCTION
The ARM MK6 GTI catted downpipe features a full 3" stainless steel construction with smooth bends for improved exhaust flow. The upper section of the downpipe has a CNC machined flange that mates to the turbo and includes a flex joint to relieve stress and make installation easier. The downpipe to catback section is where the 200 cell sport catalytic converter is placed. The ARM catted downpipe kit is designed to fit both CBFA and CCTA applications, so you can make sure that no matter which version of the 2.0T you have the ARM downpipe will accommodate your GTI.

BOLTS UP TO STOCK OR AFTERMARKET CATBACK EXHAUST
The ARM MK6 GTI catted downpipe will fit the existing OEM catback exhaust or any aftermarket exhaust that connects the OEM downpipe. The ARM downpipe kit includes a 3" to 2.25" reducer to allow it to mate up perfectly to the stock exhaust system. Or opt to connect to a 3" aftermarket exhaust system for a full 3" turbo-back setup.

Awesome experience! September 29, 2017
Reviewer: Blaise from Woodstock, IL United States  
Worked with ARM customer service and could not have had a better experience!
The sound with stock exhaust is great. There is a slight rumble, and very slight louder tone from the exhaust, almost like a stock V6 sound. You can feel a very minor vibration as well in the shifter. The quality is A+ as well, and they have the best price out of anybody! No brainer!

Price is on point. Fitment is okay. Get an OEM crush gasket. Good for the price.

Awesome June 30, 2017
Reviewer: Romario Smith from Windsor, CT United States  
Awesome downpipe. Really good quality. Only thing is I wish you guys would make it so its optional to get the stock catback adaptor. Because most guys who mod their cars have 3" catbacks, or supply a an option for 3" adaption.

Mk6 catted downpipe June 30, 2017
Reviewer: Ryan Sanders from Coronado, CA United States  
Customer service was great. I got my downpipe fast. The quality is excellent. Welds look awesome and the item was packed very well. Also came with some decals and a nice microfiber to give the downpipe a good wipe down after install. For CBFA guys.. it does have pre cat and post cat o2 sensor bungs :)

This is QUALITY!! June 29, 2017
Reviewer: Kyle Koerner from McPherson, KS United States  
I LOVE the product!  The attention to detail of the welds and being ground down inside the pipe was superb!!  The performance especially in the mid range is much beefier!!  The sound paired with my factory cat-back and DSG is beautiful! I actually picked up .3 seconds in the 1/4 mile with this downpipe and a reflash to stage 2 APR software!  I have a sound clip that is on youtube for your viewing pleasure https://youtu.be/9LoroJJxXMM worth a look if nothing else!
