AWE Tuning Performance Exhaust
AWE Tuning spent considerable time examining how to maximize the performance and options of this exhaust system. The factory exhaust consists of a long downpipe with two catalytic converters, and two rather large mufflers in the section after the cats.
Thorough long term street testing has confirmed that AWE's high flow downpipe will not set a Check Engine light or any fault codes in the ECU.
Here are some features of AWE's system. Each feature was chosen for performance and longevity reasons and when making your exhaust decisions you should settle for nothing less:
Fully mandrel bent tubing
Available with Round or Oval tips in Polished Silver or Diamond Black Finsihes
Thick .065" wall T304 stainless steel tubing
Fully lined stainless steel flex joint in downpipe
Stainless steel internal muffler and resonator construction
Stainless steel MIG and TIG welds
Stainless steel T-bolt clamps
Double walled exhaust tips to reduce heat discoloration
Included OEM turbo to downpipe gasket
In house dyno developed
The downpipe features an integrated resonator to keep the exhaust sound volume civilized even with the elimination of the very restrictive factory converters. AWE's downpipe is the first performance downpipe to be released that will not trigger a Check Engine Light on the latest CBFA engine code TSI 2.0T cars.
The catback system is topped off with your choice of 3.5" Round or AWE's exclusive Oval Tips. Both tip options are available in Polished Silver or a luscious Diamond Black finish. The tips sport laser etched A.W.E. Tuning logos and are double walled to ensure a mirror polish even under hard usage. The system has multiple slip joints with high quality stainless band clamps, to allow optimal adjustment.
AWE's catback systems will mate up to the stock downpipe, and our downpipe will mate to our catback or any other catback that is designed to mate up to the factory downpipe.
