View Full Version : Downpipe??

12-14-2005, 12:11 PM
I want to get a new downpipe for my 1998.5 A4 1.8t Quattro 5-speed. I want something that performs well but isn't too pricey (I'm a 17 year old highschool student on a tight budget!) I have a Techtonics highflow cat and Magnaflow catback exhaust, both have 2.5" openings I believe.... Any suggestions?
Also, a friend of mine recommended getting a Tial wastegate, what exactly would that do for me? I have a Forge DV.
Thanks guys!

Nope. [:(] Just the TT highflow cat, I'm looking at getting that downpipe though... But I want to see what else is out there.

GT turbos up to 30 have internal wastegates. some 30s come external.

labree/tantrumwerks makes very good downpipes.

Stick with Techtonics all the way baby.
