The SwitchPath™ Exhaust

AWE Tuning SwitchPath™ Exhaust Technology is a proprietary solution that utilizes valves in the exhaust to control tone and volume. Controlled by a combination of throttle input and engine speed, SwitchPath™ technology keeps the Golf R quiet and comfortable while cruising, but give it the boot and you’ll unlock an aggressive and exotic exhaust note.

The SwitchPath™ Remote

With the AWE Tuning SwitchPath™ Controller installed, the exhaust valves can be opened by pressing the “On” button found on the left side of the SwitchPath™ Remote. To close the exhaust valves simply press the “Off” button on the right side of the remote.

The Track Edition Exhaust

The Track Edition Exhaust is crafted of the same quality T304 stainless,  delivers the same power gains as the SwitchPath™ Exhaust. The difference comes in the removal of AWE Tuning’s valving system. this system is the “open valves” side of the spectrum, all the time, and will be most pronounced in the mid rang

AWE Downpipe

To further hone the tone and performance of your Golf R, we’re offering both resonated and non-resonated downpipes as well. Both versions feature our No Check Engine Light Guarantee, Fitment Guarantee, a unique flex-pipe section to isolate engine movement, and offer our Lifetime Warranty on the downpipe (one year on the catalyst).

Carbon fibre air intake

The fully enclosed AWE Tuning MQB S-FLO Carbon Intake is made from high grade 2×2 carbon fibre that mounts directly in the stock locations and mates up to the factory air inlet pipes, perfectly.

SwitchPath™ Mk6 Golf R

The AWE Tuning Golf R SwitchPath™ system is also available without the SwitchPath™ Activator Button. The SwitchPath™ Edition system can easily be paired with the AWE Tuning SwitchPath™ Activator in the future to upgrade to the full SwitchPath™ system, giving you complete control over your car’s note.
