A-1 Performance Sidewinder Muffler (Header NOT included), Type 3 (Squareback, Fastback, Notchback)

A-1 Performance Sidewinder Muffler (Header NOT included), Type 3 (Squareback, Fastback, Notchback)
Photos include some "Budget Brand" racing header cut-away shots, for quality comparison to these top quality A-1 Performance Headers. A little more money for an A-1 gets you a LOT nicer header for your VW! Optional V-band clamp also shown.


 
A-1 Performance Sidewinder Muffler (Header NOT included), Type 3 (Squareback, Fastback, Notchback) offers the best balance of performance, looks, and ground clearance, of any VW Performance Header available. If you are looking at buying an A-1 product, it's obvious you value quality and want the BEST! Every A-1 exhaust product is hand made to order by a master exhaust system craftsman to the custom specs you submit for YOUR car!

The maximum ground clearance these headers have is icing on the cake! Equal length (tuned) mandrel bent tubing delivers TOP HP and torque at all RPMs. These are not the Chinese made "mufflers" which won't even bolt up to your engine (and when they do, they are lop-sided!)! Check out the examples of typical "Cheap" headers in the collector cut away photos so you know exactly what you are avoiding!

A-1's headers are hand-built with Heavy Duty 16 gauge steel tubing, not that paper thin junk! Are you sick of flanges that are warped out of the box, or that bend during normal exhaust tightening? End THAT once and for all with these Double Thick Tru Flat 3/8" head and collector flanges that are so straight you don't even need gaskets if you don't want to use them!

Once you've decided on the A-1 Performance Header and muffler that is right for you, don't forget to check out the related products below for compatible A-1 products to build the ultimate exhaust system for your ride!

Choose Exhaust Finish / Coating



Ceramic Coating is a life EXTENDER, not a lifetime coating. In other words, you should expect the coating to make the pipes last longer than normal but don't expect the coating to be shiny or to last forever. Normal lifespan varies according to where you live and if you drive the car in the winter in the salt zones. Salt zone, daily driver summer and winter the systems should last about 4 to 5 years normally.
Choose Collector Flange



The V-band Clamp Collector Flange option is a single Band-Clamp that holds the stinger or muffler to the header's collector. It's smaller and cleaner looking, and much faster to connect and disconnect, than the traditional 3-bolt collectors. YOU MUST ADD THE V-BAND OPTION TO BOTH YOUR MUFFLER AND HEADER TO GET A COMPLETE V-BAND SYSTEM. The upgrade fee of $60 is ONLY for one side.
