The APR Race DP and Midpipes are the ultimate exhaust upgrade for the Audi 2.5 TFSI EVO! This system is sold in multiple configurations and is completely compatible with every component in the factory exhaust system, allowing you to customise the exhaust to your desire. We upgrade various components, which allow for better turbocharger response and power delivery, while delivering an enhanced 5 cylinder symphony you’ll love! Expect only the best components and highest quality and manufacturing techniques, and to fully enjoy the full system, get the APR Stage 2 ECU Upgrade at no charge over APR Stage 1/1+ with the included free upgrade code!
APR Race Downpipe
The APR Race DP features a port-matched outlet connected to a smooth, 4” continuous-radius cast-bend, with an ultra-smooth cast-Y that splits the system into a dual 2.5” exhaust path. In contrary, the factory DP has a sharp transition exiting the turbo, which dumps directly into a massive and hot catalyst that keeps your engine bay toasty. From there the system splits into kinked piping, with less than ~2” of diameter on one side and ~2.3” on the other. The factory system wasn’t designed with ultimate performance in mind like our system.
The system is made from T304 stainless steel. The cast Y is electropolished, and all non-cast piping is mandrel bent with a brushed finish. As always, we only use argon-backpurged TIG welding techniques to assemble the systems.
The system features precision laser cut brackets with integrated PIM nuts for a reliable connection to the factory bracket. Our CNC machined v-band and OEM-style 3-bolt-flanges are precision cut and extremely flat ensuring an accurate seal. We include new gaskets and copper plated nuts as well. Both O2 sensors bungs are cast and welded on top of the system in such a way as to prevent from protruding into the exhaust flow path. Lastly, we use OEM-style flex sections that are fully sealed with a corrugated inner liner for improved airflow. This design also resists billowing, rubbing, rattling and fraying, as is common with other types of flex sections.
The APR Race DP is compatible with the factory midpipes and our midpipes. This component, and APR Race Midpipes, is required for Stage 2, and includes a free authorisation code to upgrade from APR Stage 1 or 1+ to Stage 2 at no additional charge.
APR Race Midpipes with Catalysts
The APR Race Midpipes with Catalysts are both 2.5” and are designed as a simple plug and play upgrade. We use T304 stainless steel piping that’s brushed, mandrel bent, and TIG welded to the included catalyst and CNC machined ultra-flat OEM-style 3-bolt-flanges. The system includes new gaskets, bolts and copper plated nuts.
The system includes two proprietary 300-cell GESI high-flow catalyst, which are ideal for forced induction applications. They feature a fully captured substrate brick, which is furnace brazed to the outer mantle and physically captured by the diffuser cones. This helps to prevent rattling, rotation and damage to the substrate, especially on higher horsepower applications.
The APR Race Midpipes with Catalysts are compatible with the factory DP and our Race DP. Race Midpipes (catted or non-catted) are required for Stage 2 along with our Race DP.
