S5 4.2L Track Edition Exhaust System
The S5 Track Edition Exhaust is known for its powerful, raw V8
rumble. Still for the daily driver, this "noticeable" system lets them
know you're coming.
And for S5 owners seeking an even more aggressive sound, we offer our
Non-Resonated Downpipes. Our Non-Resonated Downpipes eliminate an
additional set of resonators from the car, to produce a louder and
deeper tone to the exhaust note.
Please note that this is a loud system and buyers should be aware.
This product cannot be returned or exchanged based upon sound
Whether you're looking for the grabbing roar of our Track Edition or
the more sophisticated tone of our Touring Edition, this family of
Exhausts affords a solution for every discerning S5 owner.
Sound Perfection: AWE Tuning 180 Technology_
As exhaust gases exit the 4.2L engine and flow into
an AWE Tuning 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 re-join the main
exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound
wave that cancels out problematic frequencies. More on AWE Tuning 180
Technology in the tab above.
For S5 owners looking to fine tune the sound even more, we offer our
Resonated Downpipes. Our Resonated Downpipes feature resonators larger
than the stock units, along with larger diameter tubing in order to
produce a mellow sound volume.
S5 4.2L Touring Edition Exhaust System
The more civilized member of the family is the S5 4.2L Touring
Edition Exhaust. In addition to the central muffler from the Track
Exhaust, our Touring Edition system features an x-pipe for enhanced
exhaust scavenging and also features AWE Tuning 180 Technology.
