Aggressive and civil, all in one perfect exhaust.
We studied the market. Existing 981 systems revealed untenable tones at certain points in the power band. This set the stage for our engineering group to craft a bespoke system that would be both aggressive at full throttle yet civil enough for daily cruising.
The prototyping process was a long road: AWE Tuning sound engineers carefully studied the tones of our prototype iterations at various RPMs, ultimately engineering a 981 Cayman & Boxster solution that combats frequencies that are not appropriate for a car of this caliber – retaining and building upon only the perfect notes.
The key to an AWE Tuning ® exhaust’s performance is extracting every ounce of available flow from the system without compromising daily driving characteristics or the settings mandated by the factory computer. The commitment to maximum flow is why our master fabricators hand-finish every TIG weld, and why the Porsche 981 Performance Exhaust is also gas purge welded to remove any imperfections that may impede maximum flow.
The AWE Tuning 981 Performance Exhaust comes with two tip options: 102mm Chrome Silver double walled tips, and 102mm Diamond Black double walled tips. All tips are stamped AWE Tuning, so they’ll know what team you’re on.
No CEL Guarantee.
You won’t get a check engine light. We guarantee it. By ensuring that factory O2 sensors stay in locations that keep the Porsche ECU within factory specifications, we ensure that you won’t see the light.
