Cobra Non Valved Cat Back Exhaust – Volkswagen Golf MK7 R
Cobra Sport performance exhausts enhance the sound, looks and quality of your vehicle giving you the ultimate driving experience. Our sports exhausts range is fully guaranteed to give you assurance of our quality.
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 non-resonated exhaust makes the system louder as it excludes the centre silencer and therefore, has a sportier exhaust note. This exhaust however, is also available as a resonated version (including centre silencer) which is a quieter option.
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 (excluding the centre silencer) which is a louder option.
All relevant fittings and gaskets are supplied.
Please Note –
This performance 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 REVIEW
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. We are now at the stage of waiting to collate all the facts and figures for the other systems which we will release shortly. If the VW Golf R Mk6 figures were anything to go by which saw over a 20% increase in BHP and a whopping 50% decrease in weight saving from the Original Equipment version (based on the de-cat turbo back system & mandatory re-map) we have high expectations from the Golf R Mk7. Having driven both the resonated & non-resonated 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.
