42 Draft Designs turbo-back exhaust system is the ultimate exhaust upgrade for your Audi A3 (8P) FSI or TSI. Built right here in the USA, these unique turbo-back systems deliver unbeatable power gains and exquisite sound without a single compromise.
This exhaust system is complete from turbo to tailpipe and includes everything necessary for successful installation. 42 Draft Designs downpipes are available in two series: Street and Race. Street series downpipes include a catalytic converter. Race series downpipes include a test pipe (Cattless). If you would like the ability to switch between street and race series you may purchase a cat section or test pipe at any time.
If you're having trouble deciding which downpipe series to choose we recommend Street. Chances are you'll be driving your car on public roads, so keep it legal and grab a test pipe for race day.
Note: Model years listed are based on US models. European model years may differ. If shopping for a vehicle sold outside the US please match chassis designation before matching model year.
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.
