Unlocked power:

Dyno-verified max gains of +11 hp and +14 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. 

Signature sound all of the time:

SwitchPath™ unleashes a signature soundtrack out of the Z06, whether the valves are open or closed, thanks to its specifically tuned straight-through mufflers and precision-engineered x-pipe. It’s aggressive with the valves closed, and viscous with them open–just how a high-revving flat-plane V8 should be. Well-collected and comfortable when cruising (like stock), a riot when ripping, all controlled via the factory controls. If you’re planning on high flow cats, proceed with confidence as we engineered our mufflers to be fully capable of controlling those harsh frequencies.

No valve relearn, ever:

There's no need for a post-install visit to your local dealer for a valve relearn. Once it’s on, you’re clear for takeoff. 

Built for the long haul:

Not only does SwitchPath™ feature tier 1 OEM-supplied valves, included in every kit is a set of machined aluminum brackets to accommodate the factory valve motors and their factory linkage, keeping them away from the hot exhaust prolonging the lifespan of the electronics. Further, these valves won’t rattle a year later after installation – others on the market will.

Stealth shielding:

Two machined aluminum heat shields bolt-on to the Z06’s bumper using factory mounting points allowing the exhaust to shine through the mesh while protecting the inside of the bumper. No exhaust wraps that will inevitably become waterlogged and cause damage to whatever lies underneath.

Lighter is always faster:

SwitchPath™ Exhaust: 42.5 lbs vs stock: 57.5 lbs 

Quad tips:

4.5” double-walled slash-cut tips exclusively in diamond black fill the Z06’s bumper perfectly without any need for additional filler.

100% emission-friendly:

SwitchPath™ does not interfere with any factory emissions equipment.

Made in PA, USA:

Engineered, designed, and manufactured in-house at AWE.

The fine print:

AWE’s Perfect Fitment Guarantee, No CEL Guarantee, and a Lifetime Warranty all come standard.
