If indeed the TCR is only 2.37”, does this mean I can’t use the oem clamp to install it? Even if I tighten it down to the max? I have a 2018The 2018 and older GTI's had 2.5" catback piping.
The 2019 and up GTI has 2.37" catback piping.
I found this out when I bought a used 2019 catback to use some parts from, and the piping was smaller than my stock 2018 catback.
(Confirmed on USA cars in my video.)
So the same question. Does the TCR muffler have 2.37" piping or 2.5" piping. Less-observant people might not even notice the slight difference, and they might have a tiny mysterious leak.
you can usually get away with the same clamp for 2.37 or 2.5, but they do make perfect size clamps for each, which is preferrable. 60mm vs 63mm.
TCR axle back is 2.5" as is 2018 GTI exhaust pipingCan someone that owns one measure the TCR piping? This muffler is on my short list for my 19 GTI.
This is true.I think you'll be okay. I think the TCR muffler is confirmed to be a direct fit for 2018 models, but not on 2019s.
TCR axle back is 2.5"
Please do keep us updated. I was planning on buying this up until I read this for my '19.What?! Oh man. I guess that means when I receive my muffler, it will need to be welded instead of clamps. I'll keep you guys posted. I'll probably go buy a caliper after work to measure my pipe diameter. Thats just super strange to me that they would change the exhaust piping for 1 year. You'd think they would have done that with the facelift to MK7.5.
