About the Downpipe
For those looking for additional power and sound out of their Golf R, we present the AWE Tuning Golf R Performance Downpipe. Each feature of the AWE Tuning Golf R Performance Downpipe was chosen for performance and longevity reasons after thorough street and in-house-dyno R&D.
The AWE Tuning Golf R Performance Downpipe features an integrated resonator to keep the exhaust sound volume civilized even with the elimination of the very restrictive factory converters. As with all AWE Tuning systems, the Golf R Performance Downpipe will not trigger a Check Engine Light, even on factory software.
The factory exhaust consists of a long downpipe with two catalytic converters, while the AWE Tuning Golf R Performance Downpipe uses a single high-flow catalytic converter and a resonator for precise sound tuning.
No Check Engine Light, Guaranteed. Even without software.
Aftermarket catalysts will inherently trigger a Check Engine Light, which is often masked with software "fooling" the ECU and burying the code. That's why AWE Tuning spent countless hours not only strategically locating the O2 sensors but also sourcing the finest high performance catalytic converters on the market which utilize high cost precious metals that help to ensure this downpipe keeps the CEL off. Even without software. And to back it up, we offer our No CEL Guarantee: If you get a Check Engine Light because of the AWE Tuning Downpipe during your one year warranty period, we’ll fix, replace or refund your downpipe.
You will pass On Board Emissions testing, Guaranteed.
Let's take it to the next level. The AWE Tuning Golf R Performance Downpipe will pass On Board Emissions testing, guaranteed during the time of your warranty. If you don’t, we’ll either fix, replace or refund your downpipe. We’re all about performance, but let’s be practical about it: This is your daily driver, and getting the most out of it includes not having to stress over emissions testing.
The AWE Tuning Golf R downpipe will work with the AWE Tuning Golf R SwitchPath Exhaust or Track Edition Exhaust, or any other cat-back that is designed to mate up to the factory downpipe.
