The EA pipe is an after market version of VW's ESS (engine sound system) pipe. If you have seen the EA pipe, then where your ESS pipe is self explainatory... The Y-Pipe delete take out the ESS pipe. If you look at the Audi version of the 2.0FSi motor you will see is has no ESS. The Y-Pipe Delete is an Audi OEM part. With this you will have more air going into the throttle instead of a stupid sound maker on the passenger side of you moter. In turn you will have a better throttle response... I hope this cleared things up a bit...

they both do the same thing but if you want more style to your engine bay then ea pipe is the way to go but if you want a little more throttle response and a bit more power then the y-delete pipe is the way to go. Your choice.

The EA pipe looks nice, and I want it, but I have a couple questions:

1. Does it void your warranty? I know this is a frequent question around here, but if someone could set me straight, that would be cool.

2. Is it easy to install? Can a newbie like me install it, without a lift or anything like that?

3. Does it make much of a difference in the sound? Do you think you would be able to hear the difference if one drove by you?

Thanks in advance :)

1.Yes it voids warranty only if that part caused the problem
2. Very easy to install, Yes a newbie like you can install it, yes without a lift
3. It make a small performance but will add throttle response and a little bit louder turbo. Some ppl say they can i did.
