Good afternoon guys,

I just wanted share a quick bit of what we have been up too this past month. I have decided to make our own in house brand (AW1) Downpipes and exhaust for all McLaren models (12c, 570S, 650s, 675LT, 600LT, 720s)

The downpipes:
Our Downpipes are 3.5” diameter are made out of stainless steel or can be also made out of Inconel upon request. We decided it was the best route to reuse the factory heat shielding (as many other manufactures have done also) as well as ceramic thermal coat them for an added layer of protection. While testing we found it best to use the mesh style flex for longevity. All of our Downpipes are flared to work with the OEM rear section, our titanium rear sections (still in the works) or any other brand that shares the same size. We offer a “race” catless version and also a catted version using HJS HD 200cell cats.

Here are some shots of our “race” 3.5 stainless Downpipes with our standard ceramic coating on them




And here are what our “race” Downpipes look like before ceramic thermal coating



We have a few pairs of “race” Downpipes available ready to install or ship, our catted versions are currently being finished up and will head off to ceramic thermal coating. If anyone is interested to get pricing please feel free to message me .

All McLaren life members get 15% off retail!

Cheers,

Really nice tig work, i take it you guys back purge the welds or use an argon chamber, seeing how you're looking to do TI? The heat control looks super consistent. Any insight into what testing went into the decision to retain the stock shields?

Thank you!, yes sir we back purge! We decided to re use the factory heat shielding with the ceramic coating as an added layer of protection as we all know these cars can run extremely hot when pushed hard.

We did an Inconel set with ceramic coating for a customers car who did not have any heat shielding and it has had no issues.

Cheers,
