OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Choose Finish



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.

5 of 5 Excellent Exhaust system, terrible gasket set. September 5, 2014
Reviewer: Jason Welch from Bethalto, IL United States  
I installed this system on my '73 Standard Baja about three weeks ago. The installation was pretty easy and straight forward and the results were outstanding. I love the way the Bobtail header and stinger sounds, and the ceramic coating looks amazing. The only complaint I have is the exhaust gaskets that Tri-Mil packages with this are absolutely garbage. The first one blew out after 20 miles of driving and the second one blew out about two weeks later. If you order this make sure you get better exhaust gaskets.
