The all-new AAM Competition Q50/Q60 3.0T Cast Widemouth Full Downpipes - High Flow Cat are the best performing and most durable downpipes on the market! Exponentially increase your exhaust flow and add substantial power by eliminating the 4 OEM high-density catalytic converters, and replacing them with two quality high-flow GESI HO (High Output) converters. These performance high-flow catalytic converters are much less dense than the factory components, allowing exhaust gasses to pass through them more efficiently, drastically increasing performance. During testing the AAM Competition Q50/Q60 3.0T Cast Widemouth Full Downpipes components provided gains across the entire power band with up to a truly amazing 50 HP gain on 3.0T 300 HP models and up to 25 HP on the Red Sport 400 HP models with no additional modifications (though we recommend using the AAM Competition 3.0TT Q60/Q50S 3” True Dual Exhaust System
to reach your full potential and create the ultimate exhaust setup). The AAM Competition Widemouth Downpipes not only increase power and torque across the entire RPM band, but also provide faster turbo spool.
The AAM Competition Q50/Q60 3.0T Cast Widemouth Full Downpipes perform better and are not prone to cracking like the alternatives offered by the competition - due to the fully CAD designed wide cast primary section. By casting the primary portion of the downpipes and having an integrated V-Band that connects to the factory turbocharger, rather than a welded v-band, we've significantly increased durability. Many downpipes fail at the weld located at the v-band that connects to the turbocharger, as welded seams are prone to failure in high heat. By utilizing a one piece widemouth cast design in robust 304 Stainless Steel the AAM Competition Q50/Q60 3.0T Cast Widemouth Full Downpipes also have an advantage by not being limited by the design restraints of hand fabricated construction. 3D Cad software is utilized to blueprint the inlet and outlets with smoother features and geometry to optimize exhaust flow. So not only do the widemouth cast primary portion of the downpipes increase exhaust flow over the competition, they also allow the AAM Competition Q50/Q60 3.0T Cast Widemouth Full Downpipes to withstand the intense heat cycles they are forced to endure - significantly increasing reliability.
The incorporated GESI High Output (HO-series) Metal Core Catalytic Converters are the ultimate converter technology for forced induction applications, with no loss of HP! The GESI High Output Metal Core Converters offer the following features:
- EPA certified for use in 49 States
- Full stainless steel construction, including the substrate for outstanding durability all the way to 1500 deg F
- The GESI proprietary precious metal loading technology ensures greatly reduced emissions, eliminating "Check Engine Light" issues
- Unique end-cap design locks substrate in so it can't rattle around
- Ultimate technology for forced induction applications, with no loss of HP
- Capable of withstanding up to 1500 deg F
The AAM Competition Q50/Q60 3.0T Cast Widemouth Full Downpipes perfectly replace the factory downpipes without the need for any modification to surrounding components. Full 3" construction allows for maximum flow while offering a more pronounced, throaty exhaust note under wide open throttle. A perfectly balanced sound for the ultimate all around sport cars!
These downpipes are undeniably the best modification for those looking to seriously increase the performance of their Q50/Q60.
