This is not a direct-fit radiator, the inlet is in the wrong place, the radiator housing must also be modified to fit properly, but the radiator itself is of high-quality, there has been no issue for five months already
a good quality converter with a direct fit, not sure if it adds power but the sound is better now but maybe because I replaced the muffler as well, no problems during installation… the latter was a headache when installing the previous converter
noticed a small gain in acceleration but the sound is the same, good build quality and a direct fit, I tried different brands on my other vehicles, but magnaflow works the best, will do the trick if you’re looking for a couple of extra “horses”
The part looks and fits the same as provided on the website, so it seems to be high-quality. Besides, it’s great to know it is covered with a limited lifetime warranty, so I hope it will live the life of my 2003 passat, professional installation is a must.
