Performance 3" Hi-Flo™ Downpipe WITH Catalytic Converter for your Turbocharged MINI Cooper S!

In order to maximize performance from your upgraded Turbo, you need to minimize the backpressure. This unit uses 3" diameter stainless pipes with the outlet tapering down to 2.5" for compatibility stock and aftermarket exhaust systems.

You may ask 'what's the point if the 3.0 inch downpipe tapers down to 2.5 inches'? Here are a couple reasons why the 3" downpipe improves performance:


[ ] The larger downpipe provide a greater area for the exhaust gases to expand - ie a greater pressure differential. The Turbo focuses the exhaust energy into the turbine to carry as much energy as possible. As the exhaust exits the turbo and expands, the energy dissipates so the goal is to have the largest area possible for the gas to expand - or a larger downpipe.


[ ] The inlet and outlet for the cat on the stock unit is 2.25", the inlet and outlet on this unit is 3". The oversized inlet and outlet greatly improves flow with significant reduction in back pressure. On an upgraded turbo, less backpressure equates to MORE HORSEPOWER. The larger the turbo, the more critical this becomes. It may not sound like much, but when you run a larger turbo - it makes a BIG difference! For maximum performance, run the De-Cat Downpipe (or Cat-less dowmpipe).


Naturally, you should also upgrade your exhaust system for maximum benefit.


[ ] 100% hand crafted in the USA from premium 304 Stainless Steel - flanges and O2 bungs included!
[ ] Water-jet cut 304 Stainless cat-back flanges, and CNC'd 304 Stainless V-Band flanges.
[ ] 100% TIG welded, argon back-purged.
[ ] Lifetime warranty against any manufacturing defects given to original owner.
[ ] We do NOT grind/polish our welds as some other manufacturers do. Grinding welds compromises the strength of the weld, and can lead to weld failure! Especially critical in applications exposed to temperatures in excess of 1200°F. Such temperatures will also rapidly deteriorate the polished finish.


This product will probably trigger the CEL, so plan accordingly.
