The factory downpipe system consists of smaller, 63mm piping with varying bends and multiple restrictive high-cell-count catalysts, all of which contribute to a less than ideal flow path and hindered performance. APR’s engineers took a multi-step approach to maximizing flow, reducing under hood temperature, and eliminating unnecessary restrictions all in a unique package only APR can deliver.

Stage II ECU Upgrade 

For the best results, APR recommends installing the Stage II ECU Upgrade. This Stage II upgrade is free for all APR Stage I ECU customers with purchase of an APR cast downpipe.
