Our exhausts have earned praise from owners and the press alike, due to their
unique "Jekyll and Hyde" personality. We spend considerable time and effort
during development to achieve remarkable civility when idling and cruising at
part throttle, while also producing a war-cry wail when full throttle is
applied. Sophisticated, refined, and powerful, all at once.
We 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 our high flow downpipe
will not set a Check Engine light or any fault codes in the ECU.
Here are some features of our 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
- 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
OPTIONALLY ADD a High-Flow downpipe (use drop down menu above). The downpipe features an integrated resonator to keep the exhaust sound
volume civilized even with the elimination of the very restrictive factory
converters. Our 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
The catback system is topped off with 3.5" Round Tips. 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.
Our 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
Why did we choose 2.5 inch and
not 3.0 inch diameter for our MK6 exhaust?
Our first 2.0T exhaust prototypes
were indeed 3.0 inch, but we found that the effort it took to move the large
mass of air in the 3.0 inch system at lower rpms resulted in a
with very little offsetting gain up top. Take a look at our 3.0 inch
prototype dyno sheets
here and see why a 3.0 inch system is not appropriate for this
Please note that due to the use of high flow catalytic converters, our
downpipe section is legal
only for racing vehicles which may never
be used upon a highway.
