As of April 28th, 2016 the EGT bungs in the downpipe have been deleted along with the secondary O2 sensor. With the latest Malone Tuning software, these sensors are no longer needed. Consequently the price of this kit has been reduced by $30.
Increase the performance, reliability and fuel economy of your 2012-2014 VW Passat TDI by eliminating the restrictive Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), Adblue (DEF) system and factory catalytic converters, thus allowing the exhaust to flow more freely.
This performance exhaust package is designed to eliminate the Diesel Particulate Filter, Exhaust Gas Recirculation system, Adblue Injection system, factory catalytic converters as well as your OEM muffler. With this setup you should expect a much more aggressive exhaust sound. We highly recommend one of the resonator options when running this turbo back exhaust. The resonator will give a nice deep exhaust note and eliminate highway exhaust drone. A non resonated exhaust will sound much louder and will drone at around 2000 rpm on the highway. Our Cortek resonators are 100% free flow so there is zero power or fuel economy loss. We also recommend the High Flow Cat if you will be going with one of the more aggressive tunes (Stage 1 or higher). The stock turbo is very small and is prone to over boost when there is no back pressure. By having the High Flow Cat, you can keep just a bit of back pressure to help keep the turbo under control without any noticeable power or fuel economy loss.
The DPF Delete downpipe is built to last with 304 grade stainless steel and the worlds most reliable aftermarket flex pipe. Rest assured that all your original sensors will be plugged back in where they belong in the new downpipe. Rawtek has engineered this downpipe to be as good as it can be. With a smooth flare from the turbo outlet to the large 2-3/4" ID constant diameter tubing, nothing will outflow this downpipe. There is even a centering sleeve on the inlet which helps locate the downpipe on the turbo as well as maximize exhaust flow and prevent leaks.
All of the hardware needed for installation is included.
