Take your MK7 Golf R to the next level of tuning with the all-new ARM MK7 Golf R Catted Downpipe. Upgrading the downpipe on your MK7 Golf R is essential if you're looking to get the most power out of your Gen 3 E888 engine. The OEM Golf R downpipe is restrictive, preventing you from running any more than a basic Stage 1 tune safely. The ARM MK7 Golf R Downpipe relieves your turbo of excessive backpressure, allowing you to increase the boost by flashing to Stage 2 maps and beyond. The result is faster turbo spool, increased power and torque, and an improved exhaust note.
Constructed of TIG welded T304 grade stainless steel, the ARM MK7 Golf R Downpipe is designed to fit perfectly, and last the lifetime of your MK7R. The ARM MK7 Golf R Catted Downpipe is comprised of 3 sections: an upper section, midpipe section, and adapter. Each section of the ARM MK7 Golf R Downpipe is joined by precision machined v-band connections. These v-band connections allow for a secure and leak-free joint between all sections of the ARM MK7 Golf R Downpipe.
The laser-cut mounting bracket and CNC machined mounting prongs make for a precise fitment to your stock downpipe mounting points.
The ARM MK7 Golf R Catted Downpipe kit comes with a reducer to connect to any exhaust system that fits the stock slip joint. It also comes with a straight 3" section to connect to catback systems that support a 3" transition between the downpipe and catback section.
The ARM MK7 Golf R Catted Downpipe incorporates a stainless steel flex section between the turbo and mid-pipe mounting point. The addition of this flex section reduces tension on turbocharger caused from torsion during hard acceleration, cornering, and braking.
This catted version of the ARM MK7 Golf R Downpipe incorporates a 200 Cell High-Flow Catalyst to reduce exhaust fumes and chance of getting a check engine light (CEL). This does not guarantee you will not get a CEL. The catalyst in located in the OEM position, therefore it does not require any extra O2 sensor extension wires, and properly warms up compared to downstream catalyst placement.
