New Scorpion cat-back for Mk7.5 VW Golf R features free-flowing 80mm pipe work

New Scorpion cat-back for Mk7.5 VW Golf R features free-flowing 80mm pipe work

When it comes to exhausts, especially those on turbocharged cars, bigger really is better. In a nutshell, the faster and more efficiently you can rid of the exhaust gases, the more power that engine will be able to produce.

Which is why we at Scorpion have invested heavily in new tooling and equipment to allow us to produce high-flow exhaust systems in 80mm diameter pipe work – like our latest performance exhaust for the new Mk7.5 VW Golf R.

UK First

Scorpion are the first UK manufacturer to offer this larger 80mm diameter system for the Golf R, and this increased bore size holds the key to the performance benefits it offers when compared to 76mm diameter systems. By allowing the exhaust gases to escape more easily, the Scorpion 80mm system poses less restrictions to the engine, therefore allowing the 292bhp 2.0-litre to fulfill more of its true performance potential.

In fact, in our dyno development and track testing we found the cat-back system alone gains 5-12bhp on a standard car. But that’s only half the story. The Scorpion cat-back system really comes into its own on performance-tuned examples, especially when working in harmony with the soon-to-be-released Scorpion 80mm high-flow downpipe with either de-cat section or high-flow sports cat. On a recent project, the Scorpion cat-back system helped to achieve an impressive 501bhp – 45bhp more than was achievable with a 76mm system in place.

Sounds Right

But don’t think all this extra performance comes at the expense of road manners and driveability. Scorpion are famed for our acoustic development, which basically means that all our systems are designed to improve performance but without any cabin drone or unwanted unpleasantries as a result. The new Golf 7.5R system is offered with an exhaust valve as per the OE setup, or for those looking for a slightly more aggressive tone, a non-valve system too. Both sound fantastic!

Finishing Touches

As well as sounding great, the Scorpion cat-back system looks the part too. Offered with quad 90mm Daytona or quad 90x76mm Monaco oval tailpipes, in bothpolished or black ceramic finishes, this exhaust fills the cut-outs in the rear diffuser to enhance the styling and aesthetics as much as it does the performance. And thanks to its T304 stainless construction and Scorpion’s lifetime guarantee, you can be confident it’ll stay that way too.
