    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, everybody. Justin here with americanmuscle.com 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 americanmuscle.com.

    Aggressive Track Sound. AWE's Track Edition Cat-Back Exhaust will add a loud, aggressive sound to your Coyote powered Mustang's exhaust note that will wake the neighbors and the dead. This Cat-Back employs an H-pipe with bullet style resonators that replace of the bulky factory resonator and a pair of straight-through muffler delete pipes. Together these components will give your 2015-2017 GT Mustang an extremely loud, raw, throaty sound that will definitely get you noticed.

    Performance and Power. Featuring a clean, non-baffled, straight-through design the AWE Track 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 at the crank.

    T304 Stainless Steel Construction. AWE proudly engineers, designs, and manufactures their Cat-back exhaust systems in-house, in the good old USA. This Cat-back 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 muffler delete pipes 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 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 Track 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 Exhaust steps up from 2.5", so that it can be installed with the factory 2.5" exhaust system. Does not fit convertible models.

      Big sound for an afordable price

      Went from an X pipe/Roush axle back set up to this AWE track edition exhaust and what a difference. Crisper sound, deeper rumble, and ease of install. I should of bought this from the beginning but live and learn I suppose.

      Awesome! Don't hesitate! Just buy it!

      Love this exhaust! I initially thought it was gonna be too loud since it's the track edition, but it's not. It's loud, but in a good way. Extremely MILD drone right around 1800-1900rpm, but I've heard so much worse. If you're trying to decide between this and the touring version, I would go with this HANDS DOWN. Super easy install as well!

      Hands down best exhaust

      I spent a long time debating between lots of exhausts, then i saw a new line from AWE released. Boom had to pick up the track edition. Packaging was absolutely amazing, look is amazing, and the sound is unlike any other. Very deep at start up and idle, kind of like the mbrp race, but at throttle, sounds insane, and has nice cracks on upshifts, plus nice pops on deceleration. Amazing for the price and amazing in general!

      Deep and loud

      installed in the garage earlier today. Absolutely no issues with the install. Only took about an hour to get the stock exhaust off and this one installed with another 10 min of adjusting to get everything lined up perfect. Nice low rumble at start up that settles down very nicely after a few secods of idle. I do have to say it is LOUD but the right kind. It's not raspy at all and sounds like a true muscle car. With that said it does have a drone at 2k but was expected since it is the track edition. Overall very good quality product and could not be happier especially considering the price.

      By far the best for the money

      Don't discount this system just because of the price. I had the Pypes factory connect system with X-box prior to buying the AWE system. They are both similar in price, but the AWE system blows the Pypes system away. Build quality alone far exceeds the other systems in its price range. Fit and finish is immaculate compared to the Pypes system. Exhaust note has very little to no rasp. Price is completely worth it for how high quality of a product you get. Took around 2.5 hours to install with hand tools.

      The way a 5.0 should sound

      Great exhaust system that has an aggressive deep tone; especially at start up or when jumping on the throttle. The AWE catback (track) is loud; which none of the audio clips I've heard does it any justice. I had it dealer installed and the tech and service writer commented that it sounds as good or even better than the Corsa Extreme. The best part is it looks great and sounds great at half the cost of a Corsa, Borla, or Magnaflow catback system.

      Loving it!

      Very quick, easy install. Fitment is perfect! Started it up after install and set off an alarm on a car nearby. This thing turns heads and has an extremely aggressive, loud sound. The only thing I don't like, which is minor, is during engine braking, there is a hellacious drone in the cabin. Other than that, no serious drone at highway speeds or anything.

      It’s loud and aggressive no complaints there but at 2k RPM the drone in the cab will make you deaf. It’s unbearable. Unless you ride in sport or sport mode the drone is horrible.

      Wow

      Well looking for an aggressive exhaust this is the one for you.... the packaging is done well.... the instructions are very easy.... the hardest part is dealing with the stock exhaust get a friend I did mine alone and my creeper and jack stands it would of went smoother with a 2nd pair of hands..... Installation of the AWE went smooth some minor adjustments to get both sides looking right at the tips in the rear valance but approx. 2 hours on jack stands alone.... Went to start the car up I was pleasantly surprised the tone I got when I started the car up... to go from the anemic stock S550 exhaust to this was music to my ears!!! It tones down from cold start but if you rev the car any it will wake up the neighbors.... driving down the road yes its loud from the outside but inside the car I had the stock radio on 8 and no problem and also having a conversation with my wife... oh yeah my wife she is not into cars but she admitted the car was awake finally... the sound was awesome in her mind and it was not too loud inside the car for her! Yes you will get sound drone but nothing drastic around 2000 on the highway speeds its not my daily so I just stay out of 6th.... for the money to get a full cat-back system in 304 stainless with the quality for fit and finish... H pipe for mainly the great muscle car sound not raspy... and resonators to clean up the sound not get too much drone... and muffler delete built in..... and not to forget the Blow Pop for after install haha this system is worth the money and wait of the time I took to research what to get... buy once and buy right unlike half the guys who go thru axle backs and catbacks and selling to get something else!

      Track Edition

      If you are looking for something really agressive, that sounds really good and has a nice deep tone without the high pitch almost raspy sound of most other systems, then this kit is for you. Keep in mind this is a muffler delete so when they say it's loud, believe it. Surprisingly tame while cruising and low throttle, but when you get on it, be ready to turn some heads because it sounds like a race car. I personally love this kit and the sound it gives my car, but some may find it to be too agressive. I made the switch from the Magnaflow Competition series with x pipe. I definitely prefer the sound of the H pipe over the X as it lends to a deeper tone that I believe is a better fit for an American V8 car. This kit is also definitely top quality, so don't let the great price fool you. The quality and fitment was much better than the Magnaflow kit hands down. In my personal experience, this is probably the best kit on the market for the S550 mustang, and if you think the track edition will be too aggressive, the go for the touring. You will not be dissappointed.
