SPM Golf R Cat-back?

I think I'm in love, as much as I used to talk shit about the company I think I might just have to buy this:




No sound clips, no price, but my god...Discuss.

I heard the prototype in Daytona. It is very mellow but that vacuum valve makes a huge difference Insound when opened up

How do you think that would mate up to a non-SPM downpipe?

Definitely a beautiful exhaust. Saw some drama with HPA claiming it looked "familiar" and then a link to their own system. Ah, the VW aftermarket parts world.

I could care less who copied who though. Just want quality and performance at a fair cost - all of which SPM is definitely good at.

They should provide a slip fit connector adapter same as the GTI unit.

I've installed three different cat backs on other members cars within the past few weeks and they've all used different brands of downpipes. One was ultimate racing the other was USP and the other was APR. There hasn't been an issue il using the adapter.

Aw Fail. I replied to your comment on FB on Tuesday, I tried to stop you but I couldn't say too much.

Sooo... How much would Magnaflow charge you to return it?

Hey Lamb, nice post...Great turn around!

Thanks for all the comments everybody, I contributed to the post Rebecca made on facebook yesterday as some of you have already seen.

Our main constraint was maintaining that nice agressive look of the dual mufflers in the rear. From the very begininning I wanted to provide a full 3" valved bypass and continue the use of a dual muffler axle back. The only way for us to accomplish this was to orient everything the way we have.

HPA's system is beautiful, nobody can ever argue against that, however our system would have looked the same regardless of their design.

We will have both a cat back and turbo back available, the cat back will of course utilize a reducer to mate to the OEM downpipe, and the turbo back will be available as catted or catless.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have, we are all really excited about adding this product to our portfolio.

Thanks everybody,

Is this a HPA or SPM? Haha J/K!

I only wish they had a offset on the V-Bands to allow easier installation and better leak protection.
