All too often OEM components must sacrifice various performance minded characteristics in an effort to appeal to a wide variety of customers. While an enthusiast typically wants better boost response and more power, all while hearing the turbocharger breathe, a non-enthusiast may give up these characteristics for a quieter ride. In the case of the factory IHI turbocharger, a turbo muffler, or Pulsations-schalldämpfer, is positioned at the compressor outlet and is designed to reduce engine bay acoustics.
The APR Turbo Muffler Delete replaces the factory muffler with a straight, uninterrupted piece, CNC-machined from billet aluminum and anodized black. To ensure proper sealing, APR's engineers took a two-part approach. A Viton seal is included and forms a seal between the base of the muffler housing and the new piece. With the seal in place and the outer flange installed, the muffler delete tube screws into place, forming a full, uninterrupted path for airflow.
APR's 2-piece design solves this issue with an adjustable height design. While a 2-piece design is more difficult and expensive to manufacture, it's the only way to ensure an accurate fit and perfect seal. APR provides a Viton seal that's placed at the bottom of the muffler housing. The muffler cover is then installed forming a seal with the factory gasket. Then, the center tube is inserted and screwed into place to the desired depth, compressing against the Viton seal to ensure a leak proof seal in every scenario. Finally Tension from the seal prevents the tube from coming loose, and the included Loctite provides extra security from movement. With the turbo muffler deleted, the APR design provides a smooth, turbulence free, and leak proof path for airflow existing the turbo!

Construction of the product is excellent. Fit and finish is perfect! Being that it is a two piece unit, installation is much easier than most. You can bolt on the ******, then apply the provided threadlocker to the insert and thread it in. Happy with the results!
Good, but maybe not the first mod
The APR turbo muffler is a great piece of craftsmanship. It gives a little more turbo "woosh" noise and that is about it. I didn't knock in on its rating because it is a great fitment and does what it says it should do, which is give more turbo noise. If noise is what you are after this is the part for you. If you are looking for power gains hold off and install this later.
