AWE, the precision engineering firm based outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has announced the release of its new exhaust suite for Audi’s 8Y RS 3.

“Audi’s sport sedans are where AWE started to truly develop its voice as the best sounding exhausts on the planet, and we’re excited to be able to carry this tradition forward with the 8Y. The AWE exhaust line up for the 8Y RS3 will do the car proud: We have SwitchPath™ for those who prefer versatility, and the unleashed Track Edition for those who prefer it raw and rowdy around the clock. Both systems weigh significantly less than stock, provide impressive power gains all while keeping it 100% emissions friendly,” stated AWE VP, Jesse Kramer.
