AWE, the precision engineering firm based outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has announced the release of their new SwitchPath™ Catback Exhaust for Chevrolet's C8 Corvette Z06.

"The AWE SwitchPath™ (valved) Exhaust for the Z06 has captured a combination of a drone-free in-cabin experience, and a full throttle flat-plane supercar scream that is nothing short of crowd forming. The exhaust saves real weight, makes real power, features a critical X-pipe, and delivers the AWE experience that Z06 owners should demand,” stated AWE VP Jesse Kramer.

AWE’s SwitchPath™ Exhaust features full valve functionality that retains factory commands and operation.
