4” Downpipe 'bigboy' - Volkswagen Golf R MK7, MK7.5 / Audi S3 8V

4” Downpipe 'bigboy' - Volkswagen Golf R MK7, MK7.5 / Audi S3 8V

** Due in End of June 2024


Pre-Order Deal - $929


Kobe Motorsport down-pipe (big-boy') offers a perfect base for serious Stage 3 hybrid turbos. Made from high temperature corrosion resistant 304 stainless steel not like some who claim high-grade SS but it's only lower grade of 201.


Our Down pipes features mandrel bends piping and TIG Welded and fully purge welded for a stronger weld. Most aftermarket down pipes are only 3” in size but the Kobe Motorsport features 4” reduced down to 3" after flex joint. All other 4" Down pipes on the market DO NOT feature upper bracket support which in turn adds load to other sections of the system and turbo, our DP features a support brace which has easy access for install.


Going 4" in diameter has been proven to increase RPM spool time to be 300-500rpm and thats based on 3.5 & 3" catted down-pipes -"check pictures for graph". It is important to note that ECU tuning is required to ensure that the engine runs and performs efficiently and to ensure that the CEL does not come on. We designed, developed and weld our first prototype of this system in house, like almost all of our products - Check them out.


Why not 4" the whole system?

Most Hybrid direct bolt on turbos (TTV5, EQT Vortex, Kobe G76) have a Turbine Flow rate of 20-25lbs/min. Those who run larger frame turbos like G35-1050 turbo could flow (35lbs/min turbine Flow) - Read On


Turbine Flow rates

Based on Garretts info - (Not to be confused with compressor flow)

EQT, TTV5, Kobe G76 (Approx.) - 20-25lbs/min = 300-350cfm

i.e G35-1050 - 35lbs/min =510cfm


Now according to and their data on flow testing the Trackslag 4" Cat-less down pipe will flow 573CFM. But that does not include the rest of the exhaust. Their testing with a Trackslag DP Catted with stock cat-back (MK7 GTI) and the whole system only flows 222CFM....Thats right...!!! They also completed another flow test on a straight through cat-back exhaust with Y-pipe w/ Trackslag Catted and it flowed 388CFM.

Now unless you get your own cat-back flow tested you will never know what it flows. But we could assume ("hate using that word") that most aftermarket cat-backs for the MK7 Golf R would be probably somewhere in between these flow rates (222→388CFM) Lets say = 305CFM - Divide the difference


Approx. 305CFM - Aftermarket cat-back exhaust systems w/ Trackslag DP Catted


Now you can add approx. +144CFM due to our down-pipe being cat-less and similar design to other 4" down pipes (570CFM). So 300CFM + 144CFM = 444CFM.


Now...with all that data, as stated before most hybrid turbos for the MQB with turbine flow 300-330CFM so 444CFM is more than adequate for our 4" Cat-less Down pipe w/ our cat-back. So using a full 4" system unless G35 turbo or more is absolutely useless and by then you have to go custom made down-pipe and exhaust.


*Please remember that this data is based off 3rd party data, so please do your own research and findings.


Thank you to for the available data.


Why not go 3.5" for the lower section?

We want our customers to be able to option their exhaust with what they want. Going 3.5" doesn't allow alot of room/space for a high-flow 100cell cat which we offer as an added option. Most aftermarket 4" do not offer the option of hi-flow cat.
