AWE has partnered with KIES Motorsports as one of the key high-performance products featured on KIES Motorsports’ record breaking 1001 horsepower dyno run, on the KIES Motorsports 2016 BMW M3.

“We knew that our exhaust would flow to great power levels. However, we were unsure of what those levels would be given that we re-engineered our exhaust for the platform to come after catalysts, thereby leaving some inherent restriction from emissions devices. This feat is a testament to the concept that you can sound amazing, look amazing, but also… blow the roof off a world record… all while keeping catalysts intact during the installation of an aftermarket exhaust,” stated AWE VP of Marketing, Jesse Kramer.

The KIES Motorsports BMW F80 is running the AWE SwitchPath™ Catback Exhaust for BMW F8X M3/M4.

“Remaining emissions compliant is something that’s very important to us in our builds, which was why we chose the AWE SwitchPath cat back exhaust. With our AWE exhaust and FOUR catalytic converters, we set out to do what many said was impossible and succeeded in our goal of breaking 1,000 horsepower, on a catted setup. Not only is it emissions friendly, but we believe it’s the best sounding exhaust set up on the market for the F8X platform”, stated KIES Motorsports CEO, Bryan Kiefer.

The dyno runs were performed at Mishimoto’s headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, with special thanks to the entire Mishimoto team. There is a full modification list found on KIES Motorsports’ website, here.
