No tune yet. I have the RAI O2 spacer, but got a CEL the day after the pipe was installed. Ignoring it for now. I may swap out the different sized spacers eventually to see if it'll get the light to go away.
I was unaware of the thread but got a PM, so thought I'd show up.

If anyone needs a detailed explanation on what needs to be done and how much it should cost at the end of the day to get this on your CBFA GTi, feel free to PM me

I can also try and get pics of my entire setup since I am now at a full 3" turbo-back configuration.

Where the downpipe connects to the catback, is there a 2.5" taper?

So in other words, does the piping go from 3" to 2.5" to 3"?

Yes it does, I recently cut off the 3 to 2.5 reducer in-order to create a full 3" turbo back with my SPM Catback

I just pulled the trigger on this DP. It should be on in 2 weeks.

So excited.

Isn't there some kind of reason to justify paying $500+ for a brand name downpipe? Superior build quality? Extensive R+D? High grade materials? it just seems strange to me I guess

Materials to some extent, but biggest is build quality. You don't want it to leak or eventually break at the welds.

It's easier buying a cheap eBay catback than a downpipe.

What I was thinking exactly. I guess I'd rather not cut corners and when I buy my downpipe, a couple hundred dollars extra will be worth the peace of mind

Whatever floats your boat, but this is just a metal pipe we're talking about here. And at $170, if it breaks maybe 10-20k down the road, getting another one does not seem like a big deal..

Problem is there's really no way to discredit the DP for its price. I've seen brand names cracked at the welds or with the worst fitment ever possible, but I have never heard one thing bad about the gsp... There are guys on golfmkv that have been running them for over 60k easy and they still look the same since day one except for discoloration...


I don't know, but something's just speak for themselves

Does anyone know if they have these DPs with a high flow cat? I have yet to find one. I don't want any smells from my car and the cell should quiet it down a bit. I really would like to keep the car sounding stock and don't want any drone what so ever when I drive.

If someone has welded in a high flow cat into one of these what did it cost you and are you experience any drone at all? Might have to get a resonator welded in and at that point I can just buy a DP with a cat resonator for the same price as building this.

I agree with him. I have yet to see anything bad about the Godspeed dp's, yet I have seen horror stories about more "brand name" pipes like Ultimate Racing.
