APR's B6 Passat Exhaust is a stainless steel, 3.0" mandrel bent,
turbo-back exhaust. Unlike most other aftermarket exhausts, the APR exhaust is a
full exhaust from the turbocharger back (must add optional downpipe above). The APR downpipe features a
high-flowing 100-cell metal high flow catalyst. This exhaust is very quiet and
simply changes the tone of the exhaust to a deep, unobtrusive sound. With TIG
welding, fully stainless construction, and CNC'ed hangers, you will not find a
higher quality system on the market.
All APR exhausts come with a full lifetime warranty, and all are
fully polished with the APR logo acid etched on each tip. Each system has an
elegant badge identifying the system and the manufacture date.
On the Passat, the stock exhaust is almost 2.5" and flows very
well even on a chipped car. Simply adding an exhaust to a stock or chipped 2.0T
does not make a very big gain over the stock setup. Unlike the 1.8T, because of
the new engine management (ME9) and FSI, there are substantial gains that can be
seen by making a software change after adding the exhaust.
With APR exhaust-specific software, peak gains of 18hp and
20lb-ft can be seen. At some RPM's, these gains are as high as 22hp and 25lb-ft.
