Touring Edition Exhaust:
Sophistication for the SQ5.
The Touring Edition Exhaust removes the factory valved exhaust and replaces it with AWE’s 180 Technology® drone-canceling resonators (and an electronic valve simulator). 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.
Thanks to the precision-engineered x-pipe specific for the SQ5, the Touring Edition Exhaust adds an exotic howl under throttle, perfect for Audi’s S-Line SUV.
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.
We’ve given you the choice of resonated or non-resonated downpipes. If you’re looking for the epitome of refinement both in and out of the cabin, go resonated. If you’re looking to looking to mix aggression with sophistication, go non-resonated.
What’s in the box?
The Touring Edition Exhaust comes complete with two 180 Technology® resonators, a precision-engineered x-pipe mid section, one AWE electronic valve simulator, non-resonated or resonated downpipes, and all required hardware for installation.
