42 Draft Designs turbo-back exhaust system is the ultimate exhaust upgrade for your Mk5 Volkswagen Jetta GLI. Built right here in the USA, this unique turbo-back system delivers 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. Four available options allow this system to be tailor-made to fit your vehicle.
Every 42 Draft Designs exhaust system is scratch-built from straight tube and flat steel. Their team of professional metal fabricators cut, bend and form raw materials with precision. Piping is mandrel bent in-house using a Baleigh CNC mandrel bender. Flanges and brackets to fit each system are cut on an OMAX waterjet. Additional forming takes place using the Huth end forming equipment and Dake 100 ton press. Only the finest North American made materials proven to stand the test of time are used.
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.
