This VW Golf R Mk7 performance exhaust is made in 3"/76.2mm pipework and fit from the catalytic converter section backwards (Cat-back), these parts replace the centre and rear sections.

The resonated exhaust includes the centre silencer and has a subtle but sporty tone. This exhaust however, is also available as a non-resonated version which is a louder option as it excludes the centre silencer and therefore, has a sportier exhaust note. 

All relevant fittings and gaskets are supplied.

Please Note:

The 'Valved' exhaust retains the use of exhaust valves. When switching drive modes (e.g. Eco to Race mode) your exhaust tone will continue to swop from quieter to louder tones as before.

The 'Non-Valved' exhaust removes the use of exhaust valves. When switching drive modes (e.g. Eco to Race mode) your exhaust tone will not change from quieter to louder as before. Using a Non-Valved exhaust will not harm the running of your vehicle, you will simply not have exhaust sound options, however the Cobra Sport exhaust has been designed with this in mind.

Cobra Sport have gained a fantastic reputation in the Japanese, Ford and Vauxhall exhaust markets over the years and hope to capitalise on this success by launching a more comprehensive selection of VAG products over the coming months to complement and expand their market reach. Therefore, they have now added the VW Golf R MK7 to the range.

Matt Thomas, Sales Manager at Cobra Sport says "The Golf R MK7 exhaust system has completed the R&D program, and we have now collated the performance results. Having tested the resonated cat back exhaust system on the rolling road we saw an impressive +7.4bhp increase. This turbo back system utilises the factory valve actuators/motors to give you the quiet factory sound when running in eco mode, in this mode the system is barely louder than the standard system. Having driven both the resonated & non-resonated cat back system on a daily basis, I found the non-resonated to be slightly uncomfortable at motorway speeds, and slightly on the louder side for normal road use, although, nowadays I would class myself as the more mature driver. The Cobra Sport system really improves the drivability of this car and takes it to the next level".

Independent rolling road testing of the Golf MK7 resonated turbo back system with sports cat front pipe and aftermarket air intake revealed a +40.76bhp (30.4KW) power increase measured at all 4 wheels with the Golf R putting an impressive 270.61bhp (201.8KW) through the rollers. This testing was undertaken by a dealer in Australia in temperatures of 29.3 degrees celsius and an air density of 93.6%.

A substantial weight saving can also be achieved with the 3" turbo back system providing a whopping 35% decrease in weight from the Original Equipment version. The styling of the system is finished off with either quad 5" x 3" oval slash-cut tailpipes in stainless steel finish or the upgraded ceramic coated versions.
