AWE Tuning exhausts have earned praise from owners and the press alike, due to their unique "Jekyll and Hyde" personality. They spend considerable time and effort during development to achieve remarkable civility when idling and at part throttle cruising, while also producing a war-cry wail when full throttle is applied.
Their exhausts are also like bespoke suits: each is handmade utilizing only the finest casing and packing materials, and they command respect without calling unwanted attention to themselves. Sophisticated, refined, and powerful, all at once. Further, each system is personalized with the original owner's name on the serial badge.
The results of their 997S exhaust development program surpassed even their expectations. Uncorking 3.8l of displacement through the use of less restrictive mufflers, high flow German HJS 200 cell cat sections, and tubular merge collector headers netted us a major power improvement across almost the entire powerband. Depending on vehicle we have seen a range of +28 to 39 crank horsepower and +28 to 31 crank torque improvement.
On the 3.6l 997 they have recorded gains of 11-12 crank hp and 10-11 crank tq with use of their full system. The stock 997 uses OEM tips that are too small to produce these gains, so our AWE Tuning stainless steel logo tips are required to reach advertised power as well as to ensure proper fitment.
Along with this incredible bump in power came a voice to die for. At full throttle with your eyes closed, you'll swear that you're hearing the sound of a GT class ALMS Porsche barreling down the start/finish straight of Daytona International Raceway. Listen to the video clip. Intoxicating and addictive.
Yet, equally important as an exciting full throttle exhaust note is this system's ability to behave at idle and part throttle. No droning whatsoever at any cruising speed with any of the AWE Tuning system components, ensuring a long love affair with no caveats.
Their system is also modular, meaning that any one of the three components can be installed along with the stock components. For example, if a sweeter sound is your primary desire, you can install just our mufflers.
