Tuning for the 8 Speed Tiptronic Transmission
Due to the weight and aerodynamics of the Q5, the 3.0T engine needs to work a bit harder to move it down the highway. The extra effort creates more exhaust sound volume, which became quite a challenge in the development of a performance exhaust. Special attention would be required - as well as the application of AWE Tuning'ss AWE Tuning 180 Technology™.
Sound Perfection: AWE Tuning 180 Technology™
As exhaust gases exit the 3.0T engine and flow into an AWE Tuning 180 Technology™ equipped resonator, they pass through strategically located ports, and into reflection chambers. Sound waves, carried by these exhaust gasses, bounce off the walls of the reflection chambers. By controlling the size and location of the ports and the chambers, we also control when the sound waves exit the chambers. The specific timing of when the reflected sound waves re-join the main exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies.
All tips include the AWE Tuning logo, and double walling to ensure a mirror finish even under hard usage. All tips are individually adjustable, so depth into the bumper can be set according to personal taste.
