AWE exhausts have earned praise from owners and the press alike, due to their unique "Jekyll and Hyde" personality. They spend considerable time and effort during development to achieve remarkable civility when idling and at part throttle cruising, while also producing a war-cry wail when full throttle is applied.

AWE exhausts are also like bespoke suits: each is hand made utilizing only the finest casing and packing materials, and they command respect without calling unwanted attention to themselves. Sophisticated, refined, and powerful, all at once. Further, each system is personalized with the original owner's name on the serial badge.

The results of AWE's 997 exhaust development program surpassed even our expectations. Uncorking 3.8l of displacement through the use of less restrictive mufflers, high flow German HJS 200 cell cat sections, and tubular merge collector headers netted a major power improvement across almost the entire powerband. Depending on vehicle we have seen a range of +28 to 39 crank horsepower and +28 to 31 crank torque improvement.

On the 3.6l 997 AWE recorded gains of 11-12 crank hp and 10-11 crank tq with use of their full system. The stock 997 uses OEM tips that are too small to produce these gains, so our AWE Tuning stainless steel logo tips are required to reach advertised power as well as to ensure proper fitment.

Along with this incredible bump in power came a voice to die for. At full throttle with your eyes closed, you'll swear that you're hearing the sound of a GT class ALMS Porsche barreling down the start/finish straight of Daytona International Raceway. Listen to the video clip. Intoxicating and addictive.

Yet, equally important as an exciting full throttle exhaust note is this system's ability to behave at idle and part throttle. No droning whatsoever at any cruising speed with any of the AWE Tuning system components, ensuring a long love affair with no caveats.

AWE's system is also modular, meaning that any one of the three components can be installed along with the stock components. For example, if a sweeter sound is your primary desire, you can install just their mufflers. Or if you are looking for maximum performance, replace your mufflers, cat sections, and headers with their versions. See the dyno sheets for the gains found with each stage of tune.

AWE's angle cut and beveled edge logo tips are 100% 304 stainless steel featuring double wall construction for resistance to heat discoloration. They are available in a polished silver or diamond black finish. Diamond black is deep and lustrous for a sophisticated stealth look.

As with all AWE Tuning ® exhaust products, each TIG weld is hand finished internally, only butt-welded junctions are used, and flange openings are size matched to their ports, all to produce the smoothest flow possible. It is this intensive attention to detail that sets AWE Tuning ® exhaust products heads and shoulders above the rest.

AWE exhaust systems are handbuilt works of art, are award winning, and are what your Porsche deserves.

Please note, this exhaust system is for racing use only.

  (Above)  Graph of measured differences between baseline and test in dyno sheet of 997S stock mufflers vs AWE Tuning mufflers. The AWE Tuning mufflers produced a maximum increase of 8 wheel hp at 4500 rpms and 9.5 wheel torque at 4500 rpms vs. the stock mufflers. Using a 1.16 correction factor, this results in gains of ~9.3 crank hp and 11 crank tq, with a broad increase of power across the powerband.
