    Bolt-On Horsepower and Torque

    42 Draft Designs 3” downpipe is the single most effective bolt-on upgrade for the Mk4 Volkswagen 1.8T. No other basic physical modification can compete with the power gains delivered by this fundamental upgrade. Simply by reducing backpressure we’re able to create useable horsepower and torque throughout the power band while also improving turbo spool and throttle response.

    Fabricated here in the USA, our exclusive downpipe for the 1.8T engine installs without permanent modification. Precise pipe routing and a stainless steel flex section assure hassle-free fitment.

    Street Series downpipes are equipped with a 200/cell high-flow catalytic converter. Race Series downpipes include only a test pipe for track day. Included adaptor reduces pipe size to utilize the OEM band clamp. Additional cat-back adaptor sizes are available. 

    To configure this downpipe to meet your specific needs please browse the options above. More information about our exhaust systems is available by following the links below.

    Important Fitment Note

    If your car is still equipped with OEM engine/transmission/dogbone mounts fitment issues may arise. As these vehicles age, OEM mounts tend to sag due to the weight of the engine and transmission hanging from the rubber mounts. This may cause the downpipe to make contact with the rear subframe. It is HIGHLY recommended that you replace your engine and transmission mounts to avoid fitment issues and potential rattles. Replacing the dogbone mount is a good start, but it will not always fix the issue if the motor is hanging too low.
