GrimmSpeed Downpipe Catted Divorced | 2002-2007 Subaru WRX / 2004-2007 STi (007082)
Downpipe Catted Divorced by GrimmSpeed
A downpipe is one of the first modifications that should be done on your car, as the OEM downpipe contains two very restrictive catalytic converters. Replacing these with our single high-flow unit will dramatically improve performance potential while maintaining the use of a catalytic converter. Within our complete lineup of downpipes, you have the option to add a high-flow, 300 cell catalytic converter, fully machined and contoured flanges with beautiful brushed tubes and black ceramic coating. Whether you're racing time attack or to work and back, we've got the perfect downpipe for you.
We use 3D scans of 10-15 OEM downpipes to identify the variances within stock parts and ensure that our fitment is perfect across the board. We then pull those scans in 3D CAD and design our downpipe with flange locations, transmission tab locations, O2 bung locations, firewall clearances and material selection in mind. Bend locations, tube lengths and divorced wastegate re-entry point are all checked for healthy flow using CFD (computational fluid dynamics) simulations in CAD. With even the largest stock location turbine outlets utilizing factory exhaust gaskets, we used a reduction process to smoothly transition from the 2.5" turbine outlet to our 3" downpipe material. The outlet of the downpipe has a standard 3", 2-bolt flange that will mate up with most aftermarket catback exhaust systems and the secondary O2 bung that we've added will save you time and money when you decide to use a wideband O2 sensor/gauge in the future.
Note: Once you have added our downpipe to your vehicle, you must be tuned. Replacing your factory catalytic converter sometimes causes a ‘cat converter efficiency’ check engine light. You can either use tuning to delete this CEL or you can use a mechanical fix. GrimmSpeed aftermarket downpipes modify OEM emissions control devices and are intended only for off-road racing applications.
