02-19-2016, 06:32 PM
I am looking to get a downpipe for my 1.8t auto and i cant find a 2.5" downpipe. i can find 3 inch and 2.5 inch test pipes no problem, but i cant find a downpipe. should i have one made custom from my stock one or can i find a premade one on the cheap.

Can you clarify what you mean by down pipe and test pipe? I just had my milltek exhaust put on about 500 miles ago and I was missing the pipe that has the flex joint. They replaced it with a OE pipe that connected the catback to my high flow cat.

Test pipe goes where the stock cat goes, down pipe is the pipe that connects to the test pipe/cat

Tektonics, milltek, and SSAC. My SSAC downpipe didn't fit. I have two of them but didn't bother trying to see if the other fit. The whole catback didn't fit test pipe to tailpipe. So I had no faith.

Borla downpipes are listed as fitting both auto and manual

That is what I have been seeing I have no problem finding the cat replacing test pipe but connecting the test pipe to the muffler system under the car with 2.5" is hard to find. I'll look at those companies and see what they have. If I have to modify a little that is fine I can probably weld something or modify on the car to make it fit, as long as it bolts up and doesn’t leak I’d be happy.

Miltek has one. Took 3 seconds to Google it.

Have a shop weld one up for you.

so i called SSAC and they said they had a downpipe for $140 shipped to me. does anyone have good luck installing one? I know Wet0willy01 said his didn't fit but has anyone else had any luck with it

Mine was smack against the firewall. Caught my insulation on fire.
