      I don't think a downpipe is recommended unless you have a Stage 2 Tune on your ECU, do some research but I think with less back pressure you can harm the turbo if engine not properly tuned for less restrictive downpipe.

      Biggest bang for your buck on a stock 2.0T is a Stage 1+ Tune and run 93 octane gas !

      It will be fine, wont harm your motor or turbo at all by running an aftermarket down pipe without the stage 2 tune.

      Pretty certain Arin from APR told someone it was ok to drive his 3" dp to a tuner for a flash but not to be hard on it because it can cause an issue and make the car shut down. But I haven't found the thread to show you yet.
