The AWE Tuning Performance Downpipe features an integrated resonator to keep the exhaust sound volume civilized even with the elimination of the very restrictive factory converters.
Their downpipe is the first performance downpipe to be released that will not trigger a Check Engine Light on your 2.0T car, even on factory software.
Additional sound level tuning
The factory unit contains a fairly large resonator. By replacing this large piece with a more compact but still straight through resonator, we were able to increase sound volume while adding a slightly deeper tone.
Testing showed small power increases in adding the downpipe with stock software, while power is further optimized with AWE Tuning Performance Exhaust and Stage 2 Performance Software.
The AWE Tuning Performance Downpipe will mate to our exhaust system or any other exhaust designed to work with the stock downpipe.
As with all AWE Tuning exhaust products, each weld is hand finished internally, only butt-welded junctions are used, and flange openings are size matched to their ports, all to produce the smoothest flow possible.
It is this intensive attention to detail that sets AWE Tuning exhaust products heads and shoulders above the rest.
Their exhaust systems are hand built, are award winning works of art, and are what your 2.0T car deserves.
Have a 2013 GLI? Be sure to check your engine code (here's how) to ensure correct fitment on your vehicle.
Certain engine types feaure different downpipe fitments, so let’s be sure this will fit yours.
Please note that due to the use of high flow catalytic converters, our downpipe section is legal only for racing vehicles which may never be used upon a highway.
Peak gains for the 2.50" system were ~20 crank hp and 14 ftlbs crank torque over the stock turbo back exhaust

I am totally satisfied with this product. It definitely delivers the power. I give my 5 stars for this product. What I like about this product is that there is no check engine light to deal with than other brands. I definitely like the power on my 09 GTI. It makes it like a different car. The sound of the downpipe is bearable and sounds really good. The power is awesome and the quality and construction is excellent. I would recommend this product to anyone and I would definitely buy this product again. Thanks awe
