    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, everybody, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com, and this is my detailed review and install of AWE's touring cat-back exhaust system featuring their chrome tips, available for your 2015 and newer Mustang GT. Now this system will get a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty from me for the installation, but we will have more detail on that later on. The touring system from AWE should appeal to the S550 GT owners out there looking to grab one of the only cat-backs in the premium category that will deliver that H pipe configuration, making it a great choice for owners who prefer that deeper tone overall compared to the higher pitched tone or raspiness of an X pipe that tends to dominate the category. Now, in addition to that, prospective buyers can look forward to an absolutely top notch quality build, materials, and fitment here, in addition to AWE's patented technology, their 180 tech, illuminating any in-car drone. But most importantly, the AWE touring I think will be for the owners out there who want a system out there that will deliver plenty of bark despite this thing being AWE's milder of the two options, their other system being the track edition cat-back, which obviously will be a little bit more aggressive. But let's not waste anymore time. Let's get right into my tried and true wake the neighbor scale, where I have the touring system coming in at a robust three out of five on my one to five, or one to wake-the-neighbor scale. Now honestly, I went back and forth between a three and a four, and I think both would have applied perfectly for this system. Ultimately, I did land on that three, though. Again, a strong three at that. Now, guys, don't be fooled by that touring name, because this system will be delivering plenty of volume. And on top of this thing being pretty aggressive overall, I personally really dig the tone of the AWE touring. It's a deep tone, nice and smooth, and maybe I'm a little biased because I do have an H pipe on my personal Coyote. But personally, I just prefer that deep thumping tone of the H pipe, as opposed to that high pitched, almost exotic tone of an X pipe. Maybe you guys don't agree with me. Maybe I'm just getting a little old, but ultimately, it doesn't really matter. It's entirely up to you, guys, as it is your car and your money. I do want to say, though, that if you do prefer those higher pitched tones, there will be other systems on the site that do incorporate some kind of X pipe. We'll deliver a little bit more of that exotic tone. Corsa is a great option, for instance, and, of course, you can check those out here on the site. Inside the car, however, things are a completely different story. Things largely impart to that 180 technology that we told you, guys, about a little bit earlier, AWE's way of kind of cancelling out this drone. How do they do this? Well, if you were to open up this AWE touring resonator, you'd find a bunch of ports. And using this method, they're able to locate and kind of cancel out these unwanted frequencies, better known to you, guys, as drone. And I'm happy to report, when cruising around with the touring system, things are very quiet inside the car. But let's touch on the construction a little bit more here with the AWE system, because personally, I feel like it is one of the strong suits when talking about the brand. And listen, guys, I know a lot of Mustang owners probably aren't terribly familiar with AWE as a brand, but what I can tell you is they've been making some high-end systems for high-end cars for quite awhile now. Yes, this might be their first rodeo in the domestic or Mustang market, but it certainly isn't their first time making exhaust systems. In fact, they've been making some stuff for German cars for nearly 30 years now, all of it very baller and all made right here in the U.S.A. But let's break this thing down a little bit further, shall we? Stating with this H pipe, we already talked about it a little bit, but it does feature the factory style, neck down that work with your factory manifold pipes, or a cat pipes, I should say, in addition to an aftermarket set of long tube headers that do work with the factory style connection. Moving downstream, three-inch mandrel-bent tubing throughout here. By the way, guys, everything on the table, premium grade 304 stainless steel. They do incorporate a couple bullet style resonators here before everything exits or enters the AWE touring resonators. No, I didn't mess up. That's what they call these things. They don't refer to them as mufflers. So they move through the AWE touring series mufflers, load it with that 180 tech that we already talked about, before finally making their exit out of the four-inch, double wall chrome tips. By the way, you can grab these things in black for an extra 50 bucks if you'd like. But let's break down the price point here a little bit more at the AWE system because this is uncharted territory, I'm sure, for a lot of you guys watching, but here's what I can tell you. Touring cat-back with the chrome tips, you're looking at just north of 1300 bucks, putting it right in line with some of the Cooks stuff and also the boiler systems as well, just south of the Corsa territory in regards to overall price point. And, again, what I can tell you, that price is certainly worth the cost of emission, guys. You're getting a premium build quality here, premium materials and a great fitment, along with a blow pop with every kit. No, I'm not kidding. They actually throw one in, and it is kind of funny to point out. Switching gears, let's talk about the install a little bit more here with the AWE touring system. And, again, like I mentioned earlier, guys, one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Maybe an hour or two from start to finish to get your factory system removed and to get the new touring system in place. Your first step is obviously you're moving that factory exhaust system. To do so, you can just basically grab a socket set again, and remove those forward most clamps here, sliding them back, and then remove the two bolts, securing the exhaust hangers to the rear subframe area. This is going to allow the entire system to drop. Just be careful, though, it is all one piece. It is a little heavy. So if you have a buddy around the shop or garage, now would be a great time to grab him. Now once that factory system is out of the way, you can get to work installing the new AWE touring system in reverse order. Personally, I always like working from front to back. That means hanging your H pipe first and securing it with those two clamps that you removed in the very first step. Once that is in place, you can get to work installing each side here of the tailpipe section. Save your final tighten up to the very end, because this way you can position those tips exactly where you want them in their respective openings. Once everything is in place, simply tighten everything down, and your installation is complete. Well, the possible list of cat-backs that I would install on my S550, if I own one, just got a little bit longer, as I personally love everything about the touring system here from AWE. Loud enough to give the car some serious bark, but not loud enough to be heard three miles over. Factor in some quality materials and no drone, and you got a great combination. So, guys, that is my review of the AWE touring cat-back, which you can grab right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Smooth Muscle Car Tone. Add a smooth muscle car tone to your 2015-2017 GT Mustang without any of the annoying drone commonly associated with performance exhaust systems by upgrading to an AWE Touring Edition Cat-Back Exhaust. This Cat-Back employees an H-pipe with bullet style resonators that replace the bulky factory resonator and a pair of straight-through Touring resonators that feature 180 Technology®. Together these components will give your Coyote powered Mustang a more pronounced sound that is louder than stock without any irritating drone.

    Performance and Power. Featuring a clean, non-baffled, straight-through design the AWE Touring Cat-Back not only improves the sound of your GT Mustang, but it will also improve its performance. By reducing back pressure and giving your GT a free-flowing exhaust, you will see increases in both horsepower and torque. AWE has seen gains of 8 hp and 18 ft-lbs of torque to the crank.

    180 Technology®. AWE designed their Touring resonators using their own proprietary 180 Technology® to give your Mustang a smooth muscle car tone without annoying interior cabin drone. As exhaust gases flow through a AWE 180 Technology® equipped Touring 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. Restricting the size and location of these ports and chambers, will control when the sound waves exit the chambers. The specific timing of when the reflected sound waves rejoin the main exhaust flow creates a 180 degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies.

    T304 Stainless Steel Construction. AWE proudly engineers, designs, and manufactures their Cat-Backs in-house, in the good old USA. This exhaust system is handcrafted from U.S.-sourced CNC mandrel-bent 0.65” wall T304 stainless steel tubing for superior strength and corrosion resistance. The system includes an H-pipe with two bullet style resonators and features two straight-through resonators that end with chrome silver 4" double walled, slash cut exhaust tips.

    Direct Bolt-On Installation. Engineered to be a direct bolt-on replacement upgrade, this AWE Touring Cat-Back replaces everything from the mid-pipe resonator to the exhaust tips. This exhaust system with H-Pipe includes all necessary clamps and hangers to ensure a simple, straight forward installation with no modifications required.

    Application. This AWE Stainless Steel Touring Edition Cat-Back Exhaust is designed to fit 2015-2017 Fastback GT Mustangs equipped with the 5.0L 4V coyote engine. This 3" Cat-Back steps up from 2.5", so that it can be installed with the factory 2.5" exhaust system. Does not fit convertible models.

    i currently running Roush Axel back with stock resonator. how does this compare as far as sound and performance.

    • Hello! The AWE Touring Edition Cat-Back Exhaust will be significantly louder than the factory Roush Axle Back. It will also improve horsepower and torque, by improving flow.

    Is this 50 state drive by noise legal?

    • Unfortunately, this AWE catback exhaust system is not going to be 50 state drive by noise legal. We do recommend checking with your local law enforcement or official inspection station regarding your local regulations and ordinances.

    I like this exhaust a lot, but will this system give me the deepest tone out of all of the other cat-back systems?

    • This exhaust will not give you the deepest tone of the ones available on our site. Check out the "Loudness Meter" to see which system will not only be the loudest, but deepest as well.

      Best sounding exhaust on the market

      The H pipe really does make this thing sound good. I get so many compliments on the exhaust. It’s the perfect exhaust for somebody who is looking to improve the sound of their car but also keep it clean, tasteful, and not obnoxious. The H pipe does a good job of cutting out that coyote rasp and makes it sound refined.

      AWE Touring Edition Cat-Back Exhaust

      Let begin by saying the quality on this exhaust system is second to none. I did the install myself in less than 2-hours, and it is absolutely beautiful. It fit perfect, and looks even better. It's really a shame something this pretty is underneath the car where nobody can see it. I will also add this exhaust sounds flat menacing around town, and especially when the engine fires up. I gave it 4-stars however because if you do a lot of interstate driving over 75mph (which I do), it can be a pretty loud. It seems like the noise cancellation technology they use is ideally suited around 60mph (where it can be very quiet), then starts to get exponentially louder from there. I am sure my 3.73 (performance pack) gears don't help, and it might not be a problem if I was a little younger too. All in all, I would recommend this to anyone that wants a great fitting/looking exhaust system that doesn't mind if it competes with your stereo at interstate speeds.

      Sounds really mean. Louder than I would have guessed from video clips. Quiets down after warm up. But will wake up with the right foot. High quality parts. Zero regrets.

      Amazing quality and sounds great

      Box came packaged really well with all polished pieces bubble wrapped. Went on the car with no issues at all. Took about an hour and a half by myself in the driveway to install. I went with this system because I do not like raspyness or drone which this system as neither. It's quiet when you want it to be but can get loud if you want it to be also.

      Amazing

      This exhaust is awesome! It reminds me of the classic muscle car sounding V8s and had the deepest tone of most the other exhausts. A lot of the research I did on exhuast for my S500 was a little disappointing. Most of the exhausts out there are too high pitched and raspy, where as the AWE has a rumbling growl to it. This exhaust has no drone when cruising, but when you give it gas (even just a little), you can really hear the exhaust sing, just what I wanted.

      Best decision I made

      My first exhaust were the outlaws, good sound but way to much drone, next were the Roush axle back, great choice, tried it both with the stock resonator and then the h-pipe, can't go wrong either way, depending on how loud you want. i've always wanted a catback system, but couldn't decide on what brand. glad i waited this is the system i was waiting for, great low rumble, nice sound throughout the range, no drone, easy install. Cant go wrong with this,

      Great product!

      Fit and finish are perfect, little to no lining up needed other than centering the mufflers/tips in the bumper cutouts. High quality clamps and hardware. Sound is just what I was looking for. Significantly louder than stock but much less obnoxious than louder alternatives. NO drone at any rpm or load. Took around an hour or so to install.

      I'm very please with this exhaust. The sound is deep and mean. Despite it being the touring model, it has got some volume if you ask for it with the throttle.

      Superb quality of fit and awesome sound!

      Got rid of my Corsa Sport catback for this. It is deeper than the Corsa, but ZERO DRONE also....so that is the key. Deeper, no rasp, and zero drone...what more could you ask for? The quality of fit really is superb. Fitted it in less than an hour with basic hand tools, and all slotted into place perfectly. I'd buy it again ten times over, its THAT good!
