Audi S3 8V TrackSlag 4″ Downpipe
£420.00 – £880.00
The first and the last downpipe you’ll need for your car (Non GPF cars only) made for the Audi S3 8V
Don’t be drawn into thinking that we made this solely with the intention of increasing peak power for the hybrid market. This downpipe has been shown to improve spool and give power earlier all the way through the rev range on standard turbos, when tested back to back with other downpipes.
Another benefit to our design is heat management. An easy way to see how much heat your current downpipe is experiencing is to look at the colour. A strong purple/blue will tell you that it’s been pretty hot! Apart from the area directly at the outlet of the turbo, our downpipe is mainly a nice rose gold colour. Can you say the same for yours?
We use the OEM style soft flex as standard, removing any risk of the turbo being used as an additional engine mount. We’ve also utilised the factory downpipe support bracket on the back of the engine block. This was an important thing for us to do, as this will help reduce stresses being transmitted to the turbo and the V band connection. We’ve heard stories about the V band clamps failing, leaving people stranded with a downpipe dangling. This will not happen with the Trackslag downpipe.
What we found during development.
- Lower exhaust gas temperatures
- Earlier turbo spool, giving power earlier and holding this advantage across the rev range
- Reduced under bonnet temperatures
- Reduced drone
Whilst we’ve designed our downpipe around you being able to hook it up to the standard factory exhaust with our “OEM adapter” option, we also offer 3″ extensions to help with bridging the gap to hook up to most 3″ aftermarket exhausts (except Supersprint) Please select which option you require at point of order.
The Catalyst version of downpipe requires stage 2 software due to the position of the catalyst.
Designed, tested and manufactured in England, using European sourced stainless materials.
