“No one has been able to solve the drone issues that become immediately apparent with an aftermarket system on the Q5 or SQ5 - until now. 180 Technology™ was put to the test on this line - and has helped produce a valve-less system that is civil when you want it, and quite aggressive when you need it,” stated AWE Tuning Vice President of Marketing, Jesse Kramer.
No need for valves: 180 Technology™
Since there is no independent control of the valves (except “Sport” mode which changes a number of other things), the AWE Tuning 180 Technology™ equipped exhaust responds to driver inputs seamlessly, removing the need for valving.
AWE Tuning President, Todd Sager, on 180 Technology™, “180 Technology™ is not the standard, typical approach to performance exhaust design. Through proprietary mathematical calculations, AWE Tuning engineers were able to create a sound cancellation resonator that definitively “turns off” the frequency where drone occurs. At the same time, while being able to squelch drone 100%, the resonator design is also providing a 100% straight through, full diameter flow for maximum performance. So at part throttle, relaxed driving: zero drone. At full throttle, attack mode: straight up aggression (all with no power compromises). Just like a valved system.”
AWE Tuning is also offering a set of two Electronic Valve Simulators as an optional add-on with the SQ5 Touring Edition Exhaust.
