- Downpipe Pair, B8/B8.5 Audi S4/S5 & Q5/SQ5 3.0 TFSI
034Motorsport B8/B8.5 Audi S4/S5/SQ5 3.0 TFSI test pipe downpipes are designed to replace the restrictive OE catalytic converters, and increase horsepower and torque throughout the powerband. These downpipes were developed to stand up to the rigors of Grand-Am racing, and used on the APR Motorsport B8 Audi S4 3.0 TFSI.
Our downpipes are constructed from .109" 304 thick wall stainless steel tubing, and designed to eliminate the factory catalytic converters entirely. They feature CNC machined flanges to prevent warping and expansion, factory-correct exhaust hanger location, and 2 oxygen sensor bungs in the proper locations for the factory sensors. Professionally assembled in-house, TIG-welded and backpurged.
These downpipes are a complete drop-in upgrade, and will bolt up to any stock/stock-fit exhaust manifold and stock/stock-fit exhaust.

Oxygen Sensor Spacers - These space out the secondary (rear) O2 sensor to remove MIL or CEL issues caused by removing the factory catalytic converters. Professionally manufactured banjo-style spacers machined from stainless steel.

- Same performance as headers, but won't crack... Review by Tyler H
I swapped these in after my aftermarket headers cracked for the second time. The tubing used for these is very thick, and I'm sure they won't crack like the thinner runners on the headers.
They seem to perform identically to headers at the drag strip, as my times are within a few THOUSANDTHS of a second of my times with headers.
TL;DR - If you are considering aftermarket headers, save yourself time, money, and headaches, and get these instead! (Posted on 10/6/2014)
