AWE Tuning 2.0T Resonated Downpipe
For the Q5 2.0T, we knew the tone and volume had to be spot on, given the varied environments this do-it-all vehicle finds itself in. It needed to deliver an eye-opening wail at full throttle yet be quiet and civil during part throttle, around town driving. Countless research and development efforts by our Fabrication and Engineering Departments have yielded the finest Q5 exhaust on the market.

Sound Perfection: AWE Tuning 180 Technology™
As exhaust gases exit the 2.0T engine and flow into an AWE Tuning 180 Technology™ equipped resonator, they pass through strategically located ports, and into reflection chambers. Sound waves, carried by these exhaust gasses, bounce off the walls of the reflection chambers. By controlling the size and location of the ports and the chambers, we also control when the sound waves exit the chambers. The specific timing of when the reflected sound waves re-join the main exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies. More on AWE Tuning 180 Technology™ in the tab above.
The stock exhaust system is full of crimped tubing that hurts exhaust flow and robs horsepower. Our Q5 2.0T Exhaust was designed with smooth gradual bends and to eliminate any interruption to the flow of exhaust gasses. Our improvements to the exhaust path result in gains of +13 horsepower and +13 lb ft of torque at the crank.
Replacing the large, restrictive factory mufflers also has a pleasing effect on the engine note. Our exhaust systems give the 2.0T a civilized, more melodious voice, with specific attention paid to low rpm situations at part throttle.
