Firing on all five.

SwitchPath™ Exhaust:

Smooth bends, tight packaging, and two attitudes. The SwitchPath™ Exhaust is comprised of primarily 3-inch U.S.-sourced T304L stainless steel featuring  a 3” valved passenger-side tip outlet and a 2.5” driver-side outlet with tailored resonator.

SwitchPath™ retains the factory valve behavior, and obeys the RS 3’s ECU commands based on throttle input, engine speed, and Drive Select. Sneaking out in the morning or creeping through town? Close the valve. Drop the hammer (or click into Dynamic mode), and your RS 3 will sing a signature AWE tune with enhanced RS burbles that will provoke a firm grin. SwitchPath™ comes complete with a plug and play valve assembling to enable easy installation with no valve actuator transfer necessary.

Track Edition Exhaust:

The Track Edition takes all of the precision engineering and performance of its SwitchPath™ counterpart, minus the valve on the passenger’s side. The result is a constant “valve open” mode. If you’re craving rich 5-cylinder tone at all times, this is your dose of steel.

Note: This version is known to get rowdy, and may be too much for many. For that reason, this particular version cannot be returned due to sound preference. Prepare yourself.

What’s in the box?

Complete AWE SwitchPath™ or Track Edition Exhaust, valve simulator brackets (one with SwitchPath™, two with Track Edition), and all required hardware for installation.
