Sound Perfection: AWE Tuning 180 Technology™

As exhaust gases exit the 4.2L 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.

Details by edition

The RS5 Touring Edition Exhaust System

The most civilized member of the family is the AWE Tuning RS5 Touring Edition Exhaust. If you occasionally have a client in the car or you are concerned about waking the neighbors, you should consider the Touring Edition. This system brings out the power and tone of the V8 in an extremely sophisticated manner. Still head turning, our Touring Edition system features resonated downpipes to produce a more mellow tone at part throttle, yet the aggressive sound you crave during wide open throttle.

The RS5 Track Edition Exhaust System

The RS5 Track Edition Exhaust was designed for those seeking additional growl. The Track Edition brings out an aggressive, raw V8 rumble. Still suitable for a daily driver, this "noticeable" system lets them know you're coming. The RS5 Track Edition system features specially designed Helmholtz Resonators and reuses the stock downpipes to give the RS5 a true V8 sound.

Please note that this is a loud system and buyers should be aware. This product cannot be returned or exchanged based upon sound satisfaction.

The RS5 Track Extreme Exhaust System

The people have spoken. The RS5 Track Extreme Exhaust is the result of a public outcry for even more. The Track Extreme cranks the Track Edition up to eleven by adding AWE Tuning RS5 Non-Resonated Downpipes, giving the RS5 a sound that you need to hear to believe.  The RS5 Track Extreme system features the same specially-designed Helmholtz Resonators from the rest of our RS5 line. 

Please note that this is a loud system and buyers should be aware. This product cannot be returned or exchanged based upon sound satisfaction.

The RS5 Non-Resonated Downpipes

For RS5 owners seeking an even more aggressive sound in addition to our Track or Touring Edition Exhaust systems, we offer our Non-Resonated Downpipes, available separately.  AWE Tuning Non-Resonated Downpipes are constructed from 2.5” T304 Stainless Steel and remove an additional resonator to produce a louder and deeper tone to the exhaust note.  

As always, AWE Tuning Non-Resonated Downpipes are only recommended for those who like it loud, and again this product cannot be returned or exchanged based upon sound satisfaction. 

The RS5 Resonated Downpipes

The Track Edition + our Resonated Downpipes = our Touring Edition Exhaust. Note that if you already have a Track Edition Exhaust, you can add these downpipes within a year of purchase of the Track Edition Exhaust for the difference between the Touring Edition and Track Edition. More info on this upgrade, here.

AWE Tuning Resonated Downpipes are constructed from 2.5” T304 Stainless Steel and include a resonator to produce a mellow tone at part throttle without also hindering the sound at wide open throttle.
