About the system
The AWE Tuning ® SwitchPath™ Exhaust
AWE Tuning SwitchPath™ Exhaust Technology is a proprietary solution that utilizes valves in the exhaust to control tone and volume. While maintaining the 328i’s factory valve operation, SwitchPath™ Technology keeps the 328i quiet and comfortable while cruising, but give it the boot and you’ll unlock an aggressive and fulfilling exhaust note. The SwitchPath™ Exhaust is offered in a quad tip configuration only, and comes complete with a Non-Resonated Performance Mid Pipe to deliver an extra dose of aggression to the SwitchPath™ soundtrack when you’re ready to let it rip.
The AWE Tuning ® SwitchPath™ Remote
The SwitchPath™ Remote and accompanying control box, which are included with the SwitchPath™ Exhaust, overrides the factory valving enables complete control over your exhaust valves from within the cabin at any time with the press of a button. The AWE Tuning SwitchPath™ Remote comes complete as a kit with two remotes, two mounting brackets, the SwitchPath™ Controller, one AWE Tuning Valve Simulator, and easy to follow instructions.
The AWE Tuning Touring Edition Exhaust
The AWE Tuning Touring Edition Exhaust is an axle back system that leverages AWE Tunings proprietary sound cancellation solution, 180 Technology, to produce the perfect exhaust note, drone free.
Perfect tone comes compliments of AWE Tuning 180 Technology.
As exhaust gases exit 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 rejoin the main exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies. More on AWE Tuning 180 Technology in the tab above.
The AWE Tuning Performance Mid Pipe
The AWE Tuning Performance Mid Pipe is a key component in obtaining the perfect signature aggressive yet sophisticated note from the exhaust. This resonated piece removes the factory secondary cat (on N26 Motors) and replaces it with straight through 3 T304 stainless steel tubing.
