AWE TOURING EDITION EXHAUST FOR THE CHEVROLET C8 CORVETTE
Touring Edition Exhaust
At the intersection of sophistication and aggression lies the Touring Edition Exhaust. A dual 3” T304L stainless steel cat-back configuration, the AWE Touring Edition Exhaust is the perfect dose of steel for drivers looking for straight-pipe performance without sacrificing perfect daily drivability: a deep, sophisticated, exotic exhaust note with zero drone at highway speeds and V4 mode, all without the use of valves.
Thanks to the asymmetric design, the number of necessary bends is minimized, thus removing the unwanted restriction in flow while facilitating impressive gains across the entire powerband. Paired with robust internally-lined stainless steel flex sections upstream, engine movement is significantly isolated, enabling life-long durability for peace of mind. Going the asymmetric approach also allowed us the opportunity of creating a bespoke cross-over section with entries from both the top and the bottom. By doing this we're able to achieve a rich and aggressive exhaust note out of the LT2 whether it be at idle, rev, or WOT.
Beyond the unique crossover, the Touring Edition brings up the rear in proper fashion by featuring AWE’s patented drone-canceling solution, 180 Technology®, which targets and omits drone-prone frequencies while defeating the dreaded in-cabin tone change when switching between V4 and V8 modes.
What’s this mean for you? You’ll be tuned into a pure, full-bodied LT2 soundtrack unlike any other without sacrificing in-cabin refinement, all while saving 31 lbs over stock.
Perfect tone, compliments of AWE 180 Technology®.
As exhaust gases exit the LT2 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. More on AWE 180 Technology® in the tab above.
Thanks to our patented 180 Technology®, your C8's tone, and volume are controlled by throttle input. Valves can be used to control flow to prevent drone and exhaust volume. . . but given the magic of 180 Technology®, valves are not needed. Want to be stealthy through a residential area? No problem. Need your highway driving to be nearly the same as stock (if not quieter)? 180 Technology® delivers. Drop that hammer, and it sings a completely different song. The Track Edition, on the other hand, is for those who like it rowdy around the clock, thus it features lightweight Track Edition sections instead of 180 Technology®.
Regardless of the configuration, C8s have valve connections, and AWE engineered a solution for both AFM and NPP valves resulting in the ECU remaining happy, allowing the C8 Corvette to operate at full stride with no CELs and maximum peace of mind. Each kit includes two pairs -- one for AFM, and the other for NPP. If your C8 does not have NPP, only one pair will be used. Purely plug in and rip!
As a finishing touch, the included aluminum heat shield bolts to the bumper (via factory mounting locations) and resides neatly behind the exhaust, out of sight, with only an AWE logo showing through the rear mesh to let everyone know what team you’re on.
Why’d we go with an aluminum solution versus a heat blanket? Heat blankets are susceptible to waterlogging and material breakdown over extended periods of time. Crafting the headshield out of aluminum it provides a true, lifetime solution.
The Touring and Track Edition Exhausts feature statement-making quad 4.5” tips, double-walled, slash-cut tips in either chrome silver or diamond black, complete with a stamped AWE logo.
What’s in the box?
Complete Touring Edition Exhaust, four 102mm double-walled tips in the desired finish, aluminum AWE heat shield, four AWE Valve Simulators, and all necessary hardware for installation.
