Welcome to the Mothership of 3.0T exhausts.

The 3.0T exhaust system represents the most comprehensive exhaust development project in our company history. The 3.0T systems have paved the way for future exhaust technologies that can now be found in most every AWE exhaust product. We have spent considerable time and effort during development to achieve remarkable civility when idling and at part throttle cruising, while also producing a war-cry wail when full throttle is applied. Hand made in house, these systems command respect while remaining sophisticated, refined, and powerful, all at once.

Hand-crafted, every detail drives toward maximum performance, quality and perfect sound:

  • Featuring Patented AWE 180 Technology
  • + 8hp, +9tq at the crank
  • Increased pipe diameter to 2.5” to better let the engine exhale
  • Strategic elimination of mufflers to release tone when uncorked
  • Available with Chrome Silver or Diamond Black adjustable tips, 90mm or 102mm
  • Engineered, developed, tested and manufactured in-house
  • Thick .065″ wall T304 stainless steel tubing
  • Stainless steel TIG welds
  • High-quality stainless steel band clamps
  • Stainless steel center muffler with OEM grade stainless steel wool and German composite packing material
  • Optional Downpipes for fine-tuning sound volume
  • Lifetime Exhaust Warranty
  • 90mm Slash Cut Diamond Black Tips
  • 90mm Slash Cut Chrome Silver Tips
  • 102mm Slash Cut Diamond Black Tips
  • 102mm Slash Cut Chrome Silver Tips

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 re-join the main exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies. More on AWE’s patented 180 Technology in the tab above.

Tip options:

Tip options are as follows – all of which include the AWE logo, and double walling to ensure a mirror finish even under hard usage.

All tips are individually adjustable, so stagger and depth into bumper can be set according to personal taste.

Please note: To accommodate the 102mm tips, the muffler itself had to be re-engineered, and as such, tips cannot be changed from 90mm to 102mm without the purchase of a new rear section of the system.

About the Linkpipes:

AWE offers Resonated and Non-Resonated Linkpipes sold separately. Resonated Linkpipes (strongly recommended for S-tronic cars) feature resonators larger than the stock units in order to produce a mellow sound volume. The optional Non-Resonated linkpipes are suited for owners seeking a “loud” and aggressive sounding system. Both the Resonated and Non-Resonated Linkpipes feature larger than stock tubing diameter.

Read this, too:

As with all AWE exhaust products, each weld is hand finished internally, and flange openings are size matched to their ports, all to produce the smoothest flow possible. It is this intensive attention to detail that sets AWE exhaust products heads and shoulders above the rest.

Note: In limited cases, the factory downpipes have been known to emit minor rattling noises when paired with the AWE S5 Touring Edition exhaust system. The possibility of rattling is eliminated with the addition of AWE downpipes.
