Four Generations Strong.
Producing an exhaust system for Volkswagens 7th generation GTI was no easy feat. Luckily we already have four generations of GTI under our belts. (Important Fitment Note: 2018+ Mk7.5 owners Click Here for the AWE Exhaust)
Merging decades of experience with hundreds of hours of prototyping, engineering, dyno testing and daily usage evaluation has output an exhaust system that is the ultimate compliment to GTI lineage. With options to go around, this is AWE Tunings finest GTI exhaust to date.
What may look like a simple design is actually one of our most comprehensive engineering feats to date. The exhaust is three simple parts, making it one of the easiest systems to install. The reconfiguration of the flex pipe on the Performance Downpipe ensures that stress goes where it should. And no spacers. And no exhaust paste needed. The list goes on. This exhaust offering is something special.
