AWE Tuning's 3.0T Exhaust Systems represent the most difficult, yet most rewarding, exhaust development projects in their company history. The 3.0T systems have paved the way for future exhaust technologies that can now be found in most every AWE Tuning Exhaust product. They have spent considerable time and effort during development to achieve remarkable civility when idling and at part throttle cruising, while also producing a war-cry wail when full throttle is applied. Hand made in house one by one, these systems command respect without calling unwanted attention to themselves. Sophisticated, refined, and powerful, all at once.

A recent install was quoted as saying, ""This is the best mod you could ever do to your cab. AWE Tuning's throaty intoxicating note with no drone makes the cab even hotter & wakes up the supercharger beast. I've had the exhaust in for a couple weeks now and can't imagine ever going back to stock. Once installed, you'll always want to paddle shift up/down to hear the supercharger boom between shifts...damn sexy.""

The magic behind this handcrafted exhaust is a combination of hundreds of R&D hours as well as the important ingredient of AWE Tuning downpipes, replacing the stock downpipes.

As with all AWE Tuning exhaust products, each TIG weld is hand finished internally, only butt-welded junctions are used, and flange openings are size matched to their ports, all to produce the smoothest flow possible. It is this intensive attention to detail that sets AWE Tuning exhaust products heads and shoulders above the rest.

AWE Tuning exhaust systems are hand built works of art, are award winning, and are what your S5 deserves.

About the downpipes
AWE offers Resonated and Non-Resonated Downpipes. Their Resonated Downpipes (strongly recommended for S-tronic cars) feature resonators larger than the stock units in order to produce a mellow sound volume. Our optional Non-Resonated downpipes are suited for owners seeking a ""loud"" and aggressive sounding system. Both Resonated and Non-Resonated Downpipes feature larger than stock tubing diameter.

Helmholtz Noise Cancellation Resonators
Once uncorked, the gearing and engine load with the S-Tronic transmission causes a very bad low rpm drone. You can even slightly hear this drone with the stock system in place. To combat this issue, AWE spent over 170 hours massaging the sound quality and developing special Helmholtz noise cancellation resonators tuned to eliminate any and all drone in the 1000-2200 rpm range. In its final configuration, this system is fitted with straight through mufflers and an x-pipe for increased exhaust scavenging flow.
