PROFILE

The ARM MK7 GLI Catted Downpipe is an essential upgrade if you're looking to get the most from your Gen 3 EA888 equipped GLI.  The stock downpipe is built with a dense catalyst that hinders exhaust flow on your EA888 engine, causing higher back-pressure, increasing turbo lag and causing your turbo to work harder. 

Replacing your OEM downpipe with the ARM MK7 GLI Downpipe will significantly improve exhaust flow, reducing the back-pressure generated by your turbocharger.  The result of the increased exhaust flow is faster turbo spool, increased power and torque, and a nice improvement in exhaust note.    

In addition, the improved exhaust flow will allow you to run increased boost targets found with Stage 2+ tuning software.  Attempting to run Stage 2+ tuning files over 25psi with the stock downpipe can put excessive stress on your turbocharger and is not recommended.  Most tuners require an upgraded downpipe to run their more aggressive tunes.  

CONSTRUCTION

Made of TIG welded T304 grade stainless steel, the ARM MK7 GLI Downpipe is designed to fit your MK7 GLI perfectly.  The ARM MK7 GLI Downpipe is constructed of a single piece design.  This solid-unit construction eliminates the exhaust leaks and installation issues commonly found with it's multi-piece downpipe counterparts. 

MK7 GTI Downpipe

The laser-cut mounting bracket and CNC machined mounting prongs make for a precise fitment to your stock downpipe mounting points.  

MK7 GTI Downpipe

The ARM MK7 GLI Downpipe kit comes with both 2.5" reducer to connect to the stock exhaust system, and a straight 3" adapter to connect to upgraded cat-back exhaust systems.  This connection utilizes a CNC machined v-band system for connecting between the downpipe and adapter of your choice.  The v-band is a superior connection type compared to a slip-fit or bolt on connection as it maintains a more study and reliable seal between the two ends.  

MK7 GTI Downpipe

The ARM MK7 GLI Catted Downpipe comes with a single 200 Cell High-Flow Catalyst to reduce emissions and exhaust odors commonly found with catless downpipes.  

If you're looking for a Catless Downpipe, we offer a catless version which incorporates a 4" Resonator in place of the catalyst. 

 MK7 GTI Downpipe

The ARM MK7 GLI Downpipe incorporates a stainless steel flex section between the turbo and mid-pipe mounting point.  The addition of this flex section reduces tension on the turbocharger caused from torsion during hard acceleration, cornering, and braking. 

The ARM MK7 Downpipe gives you an immediate improvement in turbo spool, power and torque.  Pairing the ARM MK7 Downpipe with a proper tune will yield gains up to 60whp and 105wtq on the stock IS20 turbocharger.
