      Youll see a power increase in the higher RPMs.

      Personally, I would run a hi-flow cat. I like the planet we live on.

      I can't wait to put it on!

      It should give you the same numbers as the other test pipes it's just a straight pipe with the same diameter so I don't see how can it be different. Let's hope it's a gain of about 10-15hp that would be pretty good!

      I would like one with a hight cat on but that's another 150! Mother nature does not give me that

      Really? Even though the 2.5L has shown to not respond positively at all with the addition of headers?

      All you are doing is removing the air restriction caused by the cat. You arent rerouting entire columns of air, widening the pipes, or anything like that.

      Plus the addition of headers with the right setups has proven some gains. I'd have to dig to find the threads, but they are out there.

By the beginning of next week we will be launching a group buy for these test pipes. It will run for about 2 weeks. For the group order to be processed, I need a minimum of 5 test pipes ordered. If the minimum is not met then each customer can either be refunded the discounted rate that was paid or choose to make up the difference and pay the full asking price. The price is currently set at $254.99. The group buy price will be $225 plus shipping.

      I will make a thread both here and on golfmk5.com when we are ready to go.

      Thanks again!

      So a catted pipe would be $225 + $150 + shipping?

      side note: I had a b7 a4, and was anxiously waiting for the k0r-gt. But by the time it was ready for the market, i had an extra car from a family member bailing on a lease in my name, so I had to sell the A4. I guess you can call me a "long time listener, first time caller"

      Well, I ordered it. Can't wait to put this on. Should arrive around the same time as my TT exhaust does.

      The quality is pretty good! Hopefully will have a nice and easy install..



      The hanger is the other thing that I like some other testpipes don't have it. Even tho the testpipe is lighter than the stock one those hangers are a good support.

      I hope this helps for now. I will sent another update when I put it on..

      So can you by just J tube with the differnt spacers? My buddy has a test pipe with a 42 draft o2 spacer and it did nothing for him and needs to get it fixed soon.

      Found my answer. http://www.raimotorsport.com/RAI-J-P...p/11621vib.htm

      The Jetted-J is available on our website as it's own product. Many of our exhaust pieces, including this downpipe, include the jetted-j for CEL prevention.

      http://www.raimotorsport.com/Threade...p/11620vib.htm

      They are back ordered until the end of the week but if you order now you can have one by the beginning of next week.

      Just had my rai downpipe with high flow cat and TT borla exhaust installed. Sounds sweet and pulls much more.

      Edit: first "mod" was a drop in k&n filter but I don't really count that. Hence the first "real" mod statement.

      Your stock air box is terrible! Get an intake to see real gains out the 2.5l, and even better because you have the other end of the system taken care of.

      As for vids, install vids aren't really what I was talking about. 0-60 and 20-60 is what I meant.
