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,

It would not be cheaper, because you would not use the small adapter that comes in the cat-back kit for the turbo-back. You also would not need the reducer in the dp kit.

The part you would need comes in the turbo-back kit - the pipe all the way to the right in the pic above - it is just more expensive than the other adapters.

What's it weigh? Just curious how it stacks up to the HPA in terms of weight since people keep comparing them might as well compare that aspect too.

The rear tip section is 27.75lb - Not sure yet what the weight on the full kits would be but if we are talking about the CB I would estimate the mid muffler can't be more than about 10lb and the reducer is tiny, not even 0.5lb.

Also - A little background about me and my involvement with this project, since I already notice everybody's favorite A3 keyboard warrior, starbucks drinking, handpuppet to a former Steve Petty Motorsports employee (I think we all know who she is) is trying to discount any influence I had in this project and insinuate this came to fruition all thanks to a former employee and we are copying HPA and releasing as our own.

Well if you believe him, it's true; I had no involvement. I have no design experience, I have no manufacturing experience, and my mechanical engineering degree is fake. He is really calling out his master, as he was the person who contributed 100% to this project and imitated HPA…not me.

Enough about me personally...

Now that we have everything out of the way, come out to SOWO to witness this exhaust system in person.

If you have any further technical questions, please feel free to keep them coming.

Thank you,

Technical question ahoy, how would you address that your design is so similar to HPA's?

Not quite a technical question, but a good question. We actually just answered this on our FB page so I'll copy and paste::

"Our signature exhaust system for the MK6 GTI is configured with 2 rear mufflers side-by-side. We wanted to keep that same look for the Golf R. The only way for us to maintain that appearance while offering a full 3" bypass was to design the system the way we have. "

It would be really awesome if you offered a way to bolt this on to the APR Stage 3 down pipe.
