This version of the Turbo Outlet Pipe (TOP) is for use specifically with Aftermarket Hose Kits.
The factory TSI turbo outlet pipe (a.k.a. pancake pipe), with its dramatic change in shape, is not optimized for airflow. Let’s fix that.
With a 26% increase in flow rate , the AWE Tuning TSI Turbo Outlet Pipe increases turbo response - resulting in more power and a quicker turbo spool. Testing on the AWE Tuning K04 powered Mk5 TSI showed gains of 5.75 crank horsepower and 6.9 crank torque with turbo response time cut down by half a second.
The AWE Tuning TSI Turbo Outlet Pipe features mandrel bent all aluminum construction for unobstructed airflow and a CNC machined aluminum coupler, ensuring a perfect seal with the stock intercooler hose.
Available black powder coated finish.
The TOP with factory style coupler is compatible with the factory intercooler hoses. The TOP with clamp secured connection is recommended for aftermarket IC upgrades that use a clamp secured hoses, like the AWE Tuning TSI S3 Front Mount Intercooler Hoses.NOTE: This will NOT fit FSi engines from 2006-2008.
