Now that you've watched that.... we're happy to announce the release of the NEW ECS Tuning Valved Exhaust for the VW MK7 GTI. True automotive passion comes in many forms. For us, we've found driving euphoria with our in-house engineered ECS Tuning Valved Catback Exhaust System.

Enjoy your Volkswagen MK7 GTI with the most engaging, race-inspired, performance-valved exhaust system. Intoxicating exhaust notes fuel your desire to push your engine to its limits with every ounce of power and every engine revolution. Experience your driving passion with our ECS Valved Exhaust System and control your exhaust sound with our unique valved muffler design.

Our exhaust system is made from high quality brushed T304 stainless steel with Tig-welded joints for an exceptional look and durability. Exhaust gases are channeled through the larger 3.0" non-restricted pipe where it splits into our 3 chamber, perforated and packed core muffler. With this system you the driver are in control of where the exhaust gases go from here. In normal, comfortable driving conditions, you can control the exhaust system to keep the exhaust valve closed and direct the exhaust gases through the chambers of the muffler, where sound reduction takes place. To open the exhaust, simply press the "valve open" button on the remote key fob to unleash a straight-through, raw, unedited exhaust symphony. With the valve open, we showed maximum gains of +9 WHP and +8 FT/Lbs of torque on our Shop MK7 GTI equipped with our ECS Kohlefaser Luft-Technik Intake, APR Stage 1 93 Octane ECU Software and the OEM downpipe.
