Road legal 100/200 cell cat is the ideal hardware upgrade when considering a power increase on the 2.0 TSi engine. In addition, you will notice an audible uplift in the sound, producing a nice sporty tone in the vehicle under acceleration. The Powervalve downpipe and 100/200 cell cat comes with a connecting pipe to allow you to connect to the OEM cat-back system with a minimum of fuss. If you decide to upgrade to the full turbo-back system at a later stage then the connecting pipe simply swaps out again to allow the installation with a minimum of fuss. The 90.0mm collector and ceramic coated surface on our unique cat provide unrivalled gas flow whilst remaining completely MOT and road legal.
The Data supporting the product is shown below. Engine Speed 2500 - 3000 rpm. Lambda 0.97 - 1.03 1ppm PASS. Engine Speed 450 - 1500 rpm. The primary use for the Powervalve 100/200 cell cat is a public road or track.
As with virtually all of the TSi engined vehicles, there is very little performance gain to be had from the cat-back system on its own, due to the incredibly restrictive downpipe and twin OEM cats. However, by opting for our unique downpipe and high flow cat the power potential will massively increase, firstly with an initial 22bhp kinetic, and then once mapped all the way up to stage 3 the TSi 2.0 MQB Engine can achieve in excess of 500 bhp with our full turbo-back system and 100 Cell road-legal cat. In order to install the downpipe and cat on the 4wd MQB platform cars, the prop shaft will need to be disconnected and the front subframe will need to be dropped.
