IE MK5 & MK6 2.0T 3" Catted Downpipe

In Stock


Are you ready to go faster and make more horsepower? A must for running a stage 2 tune in your VW GTI or GLI!  The IE 3" stainless steel downpipe is the best bolt-on mod for your stock or K04 turbo. It's also equipped with a high-flow performance catalytic converter (CAT)  that reduces unpleasant smells and minimizes unwanted cabin drone.

Product Summary


Equipping your MK5 or MK6 2.0T engine with an IE catted downpipe delivers additional horsepower, torque, and responsiveness when coupled with a matching Stage 2 or K04 turbo upgrade ECU tune. These significant power gains are added through the entire RPM band by allowing the turbocharger to flow freely through the 3" downpipe, high-flow catalytic converter, and mid-pipe. Careful tuning of the added sound from freeing up exhaust flow rewards you with an aggressive exhaust growl every time you touch the accelerator while minimizing cabin drone. All IE exhaust systems are designed in-house using state of the art digital scanning for a perfect fit and manufactured from 1.5mm thick wall 304 stainless steel offering a lifetime of performance and fun.




  • MK5 2.0T FSI (EA113): +55-65HP & 80-00TQ (ft-lbs) over stock

  • MK5 & MK6 2.0T TSI (EA888 Gen1/2): +55-65HP & 75-85TQ (ft-lbs) over stock

*Power figures are on full bolt-on and tuned Stage 2 cars. Power measured at the hub performed on a hub dynamometer, power figures are taken from multiple vehicles. Power gains may differ from advertised as individual vehicles will vary in maintenance, mileage, and conditions. HP=horsepower, TQ= Torque ft-lbs. 




IE's performance downpipe for the MK5 & MK6 2.0T engines include a high-flow 200 cell per inch metal matrix catalyst (CAT) on the mid pipe section. This included CAT greatly reduces emissions output and unwanted offensive smells common on all catless systems, without losing horsepower!  Have all the benefits of catless performance and none of the drawbacks with the IE high-flow CAT system




The IE downpipe replaces the majority of the factory exhaust from the turbocharger all the way back to the factory rear exhaust just before the axles. The 16mm turbo flange bolts to the stock or a K04 turbocharger. The downpipe section includes a new mount bracket and utilizes the factory mount points along with a tough interlock core flex section, this allows engine and chassis movement without stressing or cracking your downpipe. Easily connect the downpipe and catted mid-pipe using the simple and strong v-band connection. Finally, the mid pipe mounts to the stock rear exhaust with the included 3" to 60mm slip-fit sleeve, or easily adapt it to your cat-back exhaust of choice. In-house digitally scanned and designed for an exact fit and includes all hardware to make the install easy and straight forward. 




Installation is recommended to be performed on an auto lift or by a professional. CLICK HERE to view and download the install guide.

A3 8P dp
Very impressed with the quality of material used. All the welds were good. And the flange is super thick so no warping. Comes with everything you need to swap except the dp hanger if you need that. No fitment issues either once you get it worked to where it needs to be. IE has a high standard and definitely meets.

Quality and Ease
Welds and quality of this downpipe are amazing. I love the fact that I can go stage 2 with a 3" dp on my stock cat back on my MK5 GTI. I'm not looking for coffee can exhaust sounds, just more hp when I want to go WOT. Packaging, instructions and just everything about my first experience with Integrated Engineering products was top notch.

Solid downpie
Love my MK6 GTI downpipe I picked up from IE. Sounds good when you're on the throttle, but quiet when cruising. Sounds especially good between shifts. Running it on my stock cat back exhaust. It adds to the driving experience for sure. Totally worth the price for the quality of the product.
