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!

This slick adapter bolts between the muffler and header, and has an O2 bung welded in the side. This is designed for TEMPORARY use for engine tuning. By using this part you can tune many different cars without welding an O2 bung into each one. This adapter is 2 1/4" long from flange to flange, has a 1 1/2" ID Pipe (that will need weld cleanup if you want it perfect), and uses the VW Industry standard small bolt flange of 2 5/16" Center to Center bolt spacing.

This part does NOT come with any exhaust flange gaskets, you will need 2 good ones to make sure it doesn't leak! If it leaks, you'll get "False Lean" readings on your O2 Gauge!
