V-Band Flanges

42 Draft Designs now offers v-band connection flanges with the stainless steel exhaust systems. Compared to 3-bolt flanges, exhaust systems built with v-band flanges are easier to install and adjust. V-band connections don't require a gasket, and can be serviced with a single tool. Overall, v-band flanges speed-up initial install and race-day component changes.

These V-band flanges are CNC machined from 304 stainless steel. Using a male/female fitment specification for the flanges aids in sealing the connection. Due to the material cost and manufacturing time, v-bands will remain a premium option.

Note: Polyurethane transmission mount inserts are HIGHLY recommended for this application.

  1. 42 DRAFTS DESIGN 3' TURBOBACK STREET EXHAUST MKIV GTI 1.8t 4 Star Rating

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2015

    I received my exhaust on Feb. 24th exactly 2wks after order, which was perfect because the build time was 2 1/2 weeks est. I ordered the aluminum steel piping even doe I leave in the northern states. I just coated them with hi-temp paint. Still way cheaper then buying stainless steel. I installed exhaust and it fit great except for the last two pipes. Due to the 3' diameter they are against the bottom of the car so it's a vibration during driving sometimes. But all and all nice product. Sounds perfect, not too loud, good for a daily driver. I plan to soon get a tune but even without the tune my boost now peaks at 15psi instead of 12 and I'm also getting better gas mileage. I already installed a APR CAI. I going for a Unitronic or APR Stage 2 tune.

  2. Great service despite Hurricane Sandy 5 Star Rating

    Ordered a 42 draft exhaust system on Oct.27 and just wanted to let Etektuning know it arrived today. Kudos to 42 for such a quick turnaround as i know they were affected by the recent storm. If the system fits and sounds as good as it looks i know i will be very happy
