Whether you??re looking for full blown roar with our Track Edition Exhaust System or a more subtle lower decibel with the Touring Exhaust System, the two A5 Exhaust options provide a solution for every discerning A5 owner. A5 3.2L Touring Exhaust System The more civilized of the family is the A5 3.2L Touring Exhaust. The Touring Exhaust features an x-pipe for enhanced exhaust tone and specially designed Helmholtz Resonators to eliminate drone. ??With the knowledge gained over hundreds of hours developing the Helmholtz resonators for the 3.0T engine???? states Ron Mangus, AWE Tuning??s Manager of Fabrication, ????we set out to develop a refined option for the A5 3.2 that would set a new standard, and that??s exactly what our team accomplished.?? The A5 Touring Exhaust is the perfect Performance compliment for the daily driven A5 3.2L. A5 3.2L Track Edition Exhaust System The business end of this exhaust is not for the faint of heart. Dig into the throttle and you??ll realize why we call this the ??track edition.?? This is a loud exhaust, with potential for drone due to the combination of the 3.2L engine and the lack of Helmholtz resonators. Family drivers and client entertainers, we suggest the Touring exhaust. Tiptronic? Go with the Touring Edition. Highlights of both systems Hand-crafted, every detail of these exhausts was labored over to ensure maximum performance and longevity: + 8hp, +7tq 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 Polished Silver or Diamond Black adjustable tips 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 Warranty Tips and valences Both Touring and Track Editions of our A5 3.2L Exhaust System are available with: Dual 90mm (3.5 inch) tips designed to work with the stock rear bumper valance Quad 90mm (3.5 inch) slash cut tips designed to work with the S5 rear valance Further, each tip variation is available in standard Polished Silver or our famous Diamond Black plating. The tips sport engraved AWE Tuning logos and are double walled to ensure a mirror polish, even under hard usage. Resonated Downpipes versus Stock For A5 owners looking to fine tune the sound of the Touring Exhaust even more, we suggest adding AWE Tuning Resonated Downpipes. AWE Tuning Resonated Downpipes feature larger than stock resonators in order to produce a mellow sound volume, and while they are compatible with both the Touring and Track Edition Exhaust Systems, the notable difference will be heard on the Touring system. Our exhaust systems are hand built works of art, are award winning, and are what your Audi deserves.
