Touring Edition Exhaust

The best just got better.

Signature AWE howl, delivered. The Touring Edition is the sophisticated member of the S5 Sportback exhaust family.

The Touring Edition Exhaust removes the factory valving and replaces it with AWE’s 180 Technology® drone-cancelling resonators (and electronic valve simulators). This solution provides for a perfect, signature AWE experience: civil within the cabin while cruising, yet all the pops and burbles during acceleration and downshifts.

The Touring Edition Exhaust comes complete with 180 Technology® resonators, a precision-engineered x-pipe, Sportback-specific mid merge, non-resonated downpipes, and your choice of 90 or 102mm tips in either diamond black or chrome silver.

Sound Perfection: AWE 180 Technology®

Perfect tone, compliments of AWE 180 Technology®.

As exhaust gases exit the 3.0T engine and flow into an AWE 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. Cool, right? Learn more on AWE’s 180 Technology® in the tab above.

The Mid Merge

The Sportback introduced new in-cabin accoustic behavior and undercar packaging that wasn’t found on the other members of the B9 trio. In order to produce a signature AWE tone out of the 3.0T-powered S5 Sportback while engineering around the unique undercarriage, the mid merge was born. Deployment of the mid merge allows the Sportback configurations to exist without any of resonators, thus ensuring the full, sophisticated howl of the 3.0T engine will never change over time.

Tip Options

All tip options include the AWE logo, and double-walling to ensure a mirror finish even under hard usage. All tips are individually adjustable, allowing depth into the bumper to be set according to personal taste.

  • 102mm or 90mm diamond black tips
  • 102mm or 90mm chrome silver tips
  • 96mm double-walled stainless steel tips with carbon sleeve

Performance Catalyst

A precision CNC-machined billet T304 stainless steel flange, massive 145mm 200CPSI EURO 6 HJS catalyst with tri-lobe core, and 2.5” T304L stainless steel make up the Performance Catalyst’s construction for high-flow decongestion and an additional 12 hp and 15 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels. This performance catalyst is available as an option above. Please note the recommendations below before adding this option to your order.

Exhaust configurations recommended for use with Performance Catalyst:

Given the increase of airflow with the Performance Catalyst, special resonators were developed to keep sound frequencies in check. These larger resonators are included in exhaust configurations labeled as "Resonated for Performance Catalyst," and available independently (to be added to existing AWE exhausts) via the "Resonator Conversion Kit."

Please note: exhausts labeled "Resonated for Performance Catalyst " and the Resonator Conversion Kit are recommended to be used with the Performance Catalyst, but not required. However, Performance Catalysts may not be returned (absent manufacturer defect under normal warranty guidelines) if being run without the recommended exhaust configurations.

What’s in the box?

Complete Touring Edition Edition Exhaust, four double-walled tips is chosen color and size, non-resonated downpipes, installation instructions, and required hardware.

Please note that the AWE Performance Catalyst is intended for Racing Use Only, and may not be used on public roads in the US. What's that mean? Although this product will not cause a Check Engine Light, this product may modify, remove or replace an emissions device, and because of that, it is not intended to be used on public roads.
