AWE Tuning Exhaust Systems
AWE tuning refers to their exhaust systems as the mothership of performance exhausts. Designed, engineered, and handmade in-house by a team of specialists, driven by one goal: to craft the best sounding exhausts on the planet. From McLarens to Civics to Audis to F-150s, every AWE exhaust is built to last, with trademark AWE No CEL and Perfect Fitment Guarantees.
With a suite spanning from sophisticated Touring Edition Exhausts featuring AWE’s patented drone-canceling 180 Technology, to valved SwitchPath™ Exhausts, to more “disobedient” Track Edition Exhausts, there’s an option for every taste and budget. In other words, it’s not “which exhaust,” but rather, “which AWE exhaust.”
As you read on we will highlight a few of their exhaust systems.
AWE Tuning Touring Edition Exhaust Systems
The Touring Edition Exhaust features AWE Tuning’s proprietary sound cancellation solution, 180 Technology® , enabling the perfect tone, minus drone, delivering the ultimate mix of performance and sophistication. A direct bolt-on, straight-through design, the Touring Edition Exhaust delivers a civil, smooth soundtrack throughout the range while providing an enhanced in-cabin driving experience no matter how hard you’re motoring.
KeyFeatures: • Sophisticated Touring Edition • Featuring AWE Tuning’s proprietary 180 Technology Drone-Canceling solution (Touring Edition) • Clean, straight-through design maximizes performance • Engineered, designed, and manufactured in-house at AWE Tuning • Handcrafted and CNC mandrel-bent from U.S.-sourced T304 stainless steel • Direct bolt-on system for factory-like simplicity • Featuring the AWE Tuning Lifetime Exhaust Warranty
AWE Tuning SwitchPath Exhaust Systems
AWE Tuning SwitchPath™ technology responds to the exhaust valve commands sent from your ECU, dependent on your throttle input and M-Sport button setting. This means that the AWE Tuning SwitchPath™ Exhaust will transform from a sophisticated “Touring” note to an aggressive “Track” note with the touch of the M-Sport button or throttle position.
• Designed and manufactured in-house at AWE Tuning • Crafted from T304 stainless steel • No CEL with full system or straight pipes • German Engineered control valves • CNC machined V-Band connections • One piece, full bolt on system means easy and reversible installation • Programming optimized for R8 engine characteristics
Resonated SwitchPath™ Exhaust with your stock downpipes: This is the most sophisticated of the lot, while still announcing that you’ve arrived. Aggressive when you want it, yet refined at part throttle and highway speeds. This exhaust brings out the natural tone of the motor without compromising neighborhood relations.
Resonated SwitchPath™ Exhaust with your aftermarket downpipes: Your volume is already turned up with your aftermarket downpipes, but chances are you may want a bit more sophistication and refinement without losing the aggressive yell of the twin turbo engine. This is the system that makes de-catted downpipes a bit more suitable for daily usage.
Non-Resonated SwitchPath™ Exhaust with your stock downpipes: This is an aggressive set up, with sharper edges. It announces your entry while still maintaining trademark AWE Tuning sophistication. We recommend this combination for those looking for more full throttle growl from their car, with a slightly higher part-throttle / highway cruising volume.
Non-Resonated SwitchPath™ Exhaust with your aftermarket downpipes: If you have to ask, this isn’t your system.
Exhaust incorporates a proprietary mechanical valve system that controls sound volume: Under part throttle and idle, valves route exhaust gasses through a central muffler, keeping sound tame and drone free. At 3/4 throttle application and more, the valves open and the system is unleashed – going into “straight pipe” mode. An in-cabin mounted electronic SwitchPath™ Remote toggles the mechanical valves between “normal” and “straight pipe mode.
The AWE Tuning No CEL Guarantee on noted AWE Tuning products protects against the appearance of Check Engine Lights when products are installed properly and used as intended, on vehicles with no additional modifications with the exception of other AWE Tuning products intended to work with that product.
AWE Tuning Track Edition Exhaust Systems
AWE Tuning Track Edition Exhaust Systems features a sophisticated sound and impressive performance. With a straight-through design, the Track Edition Exhaust revamps the attitude entirely, providing a more pronounced, aggressive tone in the mid range by replacing the forward resonator with a straight pipe section.
Key Features: • Engineered, designed, and manufactured in-house at AWE Tuning • Hand crafted from U.S.-sourced CNC mandrel-bent 0.65 wall T304 stainless steel • Double walled adjustable tips • Direct bolt-on • No Check Engine Light – Guaranteed • Perfect Fitment – Guaranteed
