I'm planning on buying a new exhaust system next. I want it to be a cat back and magnaflow 2.25" but all the ones i see are dual tip at end which i dont want. My question is will a 2.25" cat back amgnaflow exhaust system like this
so even though it says its not designed to fit my car and made for 1.8t with reducers i can make it fit? and also for a CAI if it is made for a 1.8t to fit it to a 12v vr6 i need just different couplers right?
Bah, I am unsure of the VR6 model man, sorry. I "think" it wil bolt up, but may need a little work too.
says this on the site: While all of our long-term testing was done on 1.8T vehicles, this system will also fit turbocharged 2.0, VR6, and even TDI equipped mk4 VWs. Fitment is designed to connect to your existing 3" downpipe. The system will bolt-up perfectly to our 1.8T 3" downpipes, but we also accomodate other brands of 3" downpipes and custom downpipes by including an extra flange. This flange is intended to be welded to the end of your existing 3" downpipe. Precise fitment of our flange to your existing downpipe is necessary in order to fit this cat-back correctly. While this may seem like a hassle, it is necessary for us to assure a perfect fit. Keep in mind, these cat-backs are designed for factory and custom turbocharged vehicles (1.8T, 2.0T, VR6T). 3" piping is beyond overkill for all-motor applications and not recommended by 42. Our flanged system is designed to bolt-up to our 1.8T 3" downpipes and allow custom fitment to any 3" downpipe on any motor.
I am unfamiliar with that exhaust as i assume Euro enginuity is that manifature? Magnaflow components are normally a quality piece (this is the muffler brand that 42 DD and others use) but i see that is 2.25in OD piping. so i ask, what is the point? That means ID is probably 2.15" and your stock system is that big...
VR6 has 3" MAF housing while 1.8t is 2.75 I think, I am sure that any silicone provider can get you this piece and a couple band clamps, but I use 034motorsports, BUT ECStuning has this exact one on sale if you don't care about it being stamped with thier name or no name perhaps:
You run a VRT though. Really, he should use a different muffler or send/ask 42DD to use a different muffler to compensate for his backpressure. Max he should run is a 2.5, with a Naturally Aspirated higher resistance muffler. Mufflers for turbo cars are practically empty because the turbo and wastegate do all the backpressure work.
