AWE Tuning A3 8P 2.0T fwd Sportback Performance Exhaust System

A3 performance lives here.
We spent considerable time examining how to maximise the performance and options of this exhaust system. The factory exhaust consists of a long downpipe with two catalytic converters, and two rather large mufflers in the section after the cats.

Thorough long term street testing has confirmed that our high flow downpipe, whether equipped with with the 400 cell ceramic catalytic converter or the 200 cell metal catalytic converter, will not set a Check Engine light or any fault codes in the ECU. For customers looking for ultimate power, our HJS German made metal catalytic converter featuring an Emitec core will provide an additional 9hp over our ceramic converter option.

Here are some features of our system. Each feature was chosen for performance and longevity reasons, and when making your exhaust decisions you should settle for nothing less:

  • Fully mandrel bent tubing
  • Thick .065" wall T304 stainless steel tubing
  • Fully lined stainless steel flex joint in downpipe
  • Stainless steel internal muffler and resonator construction
  • Stainless steel MIG and TIG welds
  • Stainless steel T-bolt clamps
  • Double walled exhaust tips to reduce heat discoloration
  • Included OEM turbo to downpipe gasket
  • In house dyno developed

The downpipe features an integrated resonator to keep the exhaust sound volume civilised even with the elimination of the very restrictive factory converters. The catback system is topped off with our signature 3.15" bevelled exhaust tips. The tips sport laser etched AWE Tuning logos and are double walled to ensure a mirror polish even under hard usage. The system has multiple slip joints with high quality t-bolt clamps, to allow optimal adjustment.

Our catback systems will mate up to the stock downpipe, and our downpipe will mate to our catbacks or any other catback that is designed to mate up to the factory downpipe.

Why did we choose 2.5 inch and not 3.0 inch diameter for our A3 exhaust? 
Our first prototypes of this system were indeed 3.0 inch, but we found that the effort it took to move the large mass of air in the 3.0 inch system at lower rpms resulted in a loss of torque with very little offsetting gain up top. Take a look at our 3.0 inch prototype dyno sheets in the Performance Specs tab and see why a 3.0 inch system is not appropriate for this car.

Please note, these AWE Tuning Performance Downpipes are for racing use only.

Awesome GTI Delivery Information

Do we ship abroad ?

Yes we do, to anywhere in the world though remember the postage is often high when shipping anything bulky. Most bulky items we export will go by UKMail so you can track the package online and could reach america within 48 hours providing its in stock !

There are a few countries we do not ship to, some of these include: Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Russia, Nigeria, Macedonia, Singapore, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Lebanon and Lithuania.

Why is postage on bulky items to some countries expensive compared to some other companies ?

For both yours and our safety we use well known couriers such as UKMail for shipping, then we know exactly where it is in the world at any time and we know its going to arrive safely. Shipping small items can be cheap, but items such as bodykits are expensive to ship - we have a very small margin on the postage fees merely to cover packaging. We can now ship using standard post on some items, however using all methods you may incur import charges when you receive the goods for which we cant be responsible for.
