      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, everybody. Justin here with with my detailed review and install of AWE's Track Edition cat-back exhaust system featuring their chrome tips, available for your 2015 and newer Mustang GT. So the AWE Track Edition cat-back should appeal to any S550 GT owner out there looking to grab one of the most affordable muffler deleting cat-backs on the site, one that will incorporate the H-pipe and help deliver plenty of volume in the process. Now, as far as the install is concerned, well, guys, you're looking at a 100% bolt-on job, so one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter with some more detail later on. So the easiest and probably best way for me to describe this system from a sound aspect is that you're going to be getting all of the volume of a Corsa Xtreme, but without that high-pitched, almost exotic tone, and that's due to two big reasons. First and foremost, guys, you're looking at it, the incorporated H-pipe, which will help deliver that lower tone overall, that more thumping tone as you guys heard with the sound clips. So with the Track Edition installed, don't expect that high-pitched, almost raspy tone that you're getting with a Corsa or some of the other more aggressive systems on the site. Secondly, again, this will be one of only a handful of muffler deleting cat-back options currently available on the site. Pypes does offer one that's actually a little bit more money than the AWE system, and Stainless Works offers something kind of similar, but it's not exactly a true muffler delete. So what does this all mean when it comes time to talk about sound with the Track Edition from AWE? Well, guys, be ready to wake some neighbors, because this thing is loud. Easy five out of five on my one to five, or "one to wake the neighbors" scale. Definitely, on par with the Corsa Xtreme, the Flowmaster Outlaw, Borla Atak, and by the way, is more affordable than all three of the systems I just mentioned. However, inside the car, things were a different story completely. This thing really wasn't all that loud on the inside, if you can believe it, because yes. It's super-aggressive on the outside. Now, typically, with those muffler deletes, things can get loud and boomy pretty quick inside the car. Again, not the case here. With the AWE system, different RPM levels while cruising didn't really reveal any excessive drone. Let's talk a little bit more about the AWE Track Edition gets its tone, and we've already covered most of the big points.Again, you have that incorporated H-pipe. But from there, everything flows downstream into the twin bullet-style resonators, straight through by design just to help clean up the sound a little bit without really hurting your flow or performance. From there, things travel through the muffler deleting axle-backs, and finally out the four-inch double-wall chrome tips etched with that AWE logo, which you can grab in black, by the way, for an additional $50. Now, everything is made from premium-grade 304 stainless steel, beautiful welds, and everything is built right here in the U.S.A. AWE actually claims some inherent performance benefits, as well, with their Track Edition system and it kind of makes sense when you think about it. You're eliminating that restrictive factory resonator, along with those mufflers, making for a very free-flowing system. Now, those guys actually claim 8 horsepower and 18-foot pounds of torque at the crank, which to you guys should equate to roughly single-digit numbers at the tire. That's probably what you can expect here as far as best case scenario. Because in our experience, cat-backs on the S550 typically aren't going to add a whole bunch of power by themselves. For those of you guys who aren't really up to speed with the AWE name, here's what you need to know. They've been making some really high-end stuff for high-end European cars for almost 30 years now. BMW, Benz, McLaren, Bentley, cars like that. So obviously, they know what they're doing, and they're going to be bringing some of that same knowledge and reputation into the Mustang field, starting with the S550. I have to say, guys, so far from what I've seen, I've been very impressed. Another area I'm very impressed with the AWE Track Edition system is the price. Again, mid-$700 for all of this. Premium materials, premium build quality, and a very unique tone, again, making this the most affordable muffler deleting cat-back of its kind currently here at AM. If I can be completely honest, at that price point, this thing is a complete bargain. But let's switch gears and talk about the install. As I pointed out at the very top of this video, expect a no-brainer. Right? Full bolt-on installation here, requiring you just some basic hand tools, making for a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty scale. Maybe an hour or two of your time, before you're making some noise. You want to first start by removing that factory cat-back. In order to do so, grab your socket set and loosen up the two sleeve clamps securing your factory cat-back to the forward-most pipes there. Then, from that point, remove the two bolts securing the hangers to the rear subframe, and you can drop the entire system from the car. Just be careful, though, guys. It is all one piece and can be a little tricky to do by yourself. Once the factory stuff is out of the way, you can get to work installing the new AWE system, starting from front to back, of course. That will be the best advice I can give you. So hang that H-pipe using the two sleeve clamps you removed in the first step, and then just basically work your way from front to back, starting with the bullets, the tailpipes, and then finally the tips here. But save your final tighten up to the very end. This way you can make some small adjustments before you really torque everything down, and your installation is complete. Plain and simple here, gang, if you're after one of the most aggressive cat-backs in the category for the least amount of money, the AWE Track Edition might just be your system. Factor in a quality build and no drone, and you've got a premium cat-back for an entry-level price. So that is my review of the AWE Track Edition, which you can grab right here at

        This sucker is loud

        7/5 on wake your neighbors scale. Cold starts rattle pictures in my garage. No drone on the highway except right at 2k rpm. Very high quality parts and easy to bolt on

        Great sound

        Best sounding mustang exhaust. The system is loud, so if you are looking for a very aggressive exhaust this is for you. It has a deep sound with no rasp.

        These pipes sound absolutely awesome.

        The pipes went on great it took me about an hour or so which was mostly creating space for me to work. The detail is great and the black tips really look great.

        Great product

        This took my brother and I maybe an hour and half to take off the factory exhaust and put on this product. Just jacked up the rear end and could use hand tools. This was our first exhaust to do ourselves and was super easy. We just used the video from here as a guide. This product is so loud and just what I wanted. I did a lot of research before I purchased this product and love it so much. Love the 304 Stainless steel tubing and like I said it was super easy to install. I would recommend this for anyone for this price. Love the muffler delete and so much room underneath as well.

        AWE Heck Yeah!

        The install went smoothly and the fit and finish are outstanding. The sound of this exhaust is exactly what I was looking for; menacing but not obnoxious.

        Sounds mean and aggressive with that deep rumble I was looking for. Drone is pretty bad at 2k but that's it. Overall great exhaust for the price!

        This is a great exhaust, very deep muscle growl. There is some drone at 2k rpm, especially when going up hills. But, if you don't care about drone and want to turn heads everywhere you go, then get this exhaust. For the price and how easy it was to install, you won't find a better option. I get compliments all the time about this exhaust, It is VERY loud!

        Dip tone / raspy

        Good dip tone on low rpm and becomes really raspy when you step on it. Drone is bad at 80mph 1800 rpm to 2000rpm.

        Great product

        I installed this exhaust in my driveway. This product is very good and has a nice tone. It takes about 800-1000 miles to fully break in, and it got a little louder over that time but it sounds great.

      Hi I have this exhaust system and its great love the sound and I get compliments everywhere. I do have a question though I plan on getting headers to go with this (pypes or the bbk ceramic), but im unsure which midpipe adapter size will work. The 2.5 or 3 inch?

      • The H pipe included in this kit steps up from the factory 2.5" piping size. You will want to use the 2.5" adapter for your application.

      Do you need to install a cold air intake when installing an exhaust system. I see it is recommended when buying this product to also purchase a old air intake but it is necessary?

      • A cold air intake is not required when upgrading to a cat-back exhaust.

      Would anyone here know if I'd still pass inspection in Massachusetts with this cat-back? I'm just kinda worried places might give a hard time because there's no visible mufflers, just the bullet resonators. I'm on the fence between this and Borla ATAK, but tending to lean towards this because it has an H pipe...I like a deeper/throaty tone vs more raspy, but don't wanna drop almost $1k then have issues getting stickers. 1 answer
