On this 2.0 TSI Gen3 platform, Unitronic’s Downpipe features a flow matched turbocharger turbine discharge downturn of 80mm smoothly tapering to 76.2mm (3”). The exhaust gasses continue through a 200-cell metallic matrix high-flow catalyst, located in the factory position for maximum efficiency along with an OEM-inspired heat shield to reduce radiant heat dispersing into the engine bay.
Unitronic’s Downpipe is designed to utilize the OEM mounting locations to ensure a seamless direct bolt-on upgrade, while securely fastening the downpipe to the engine. This results in mitigating any potential rotation of the v-band flange between the turbocharger discharge and downpipe under hard acceleration and engine movement. Unitronic’s Downpipe also features an 6-inch corrugated stainless steel flex section to further ensure long-term longevity and integrity.
Unitronic’s Exhaust Systems feature a unique v-band fastening system, using T316 stainless steel flanges and a locking ring to guarantee a centric alignment of the two v-band flanges to ensure a leak proof connection every time. These elements combined not only allow Unitronic to set itself apart from the competition, but also for less development prototyping, faster validation, and strict post-production quality control.
