AWE Straight Pipe Exhaust for Audi R8 4.2L

SKU: awe3010-11018

Do you find our R8 4.2L V8 SwitchPath™ Exhaust too docile for your tastes? Meet the AWE R8 4.2L Performance Straight Pipe Exhaust. This system unlocks the same impressive power gains of 25 hp and 28 lb-ft as our SwitchPath™ Exhaust System, but sheds even more weight over the stock exhaust system, for a total weight loss of 50 lbs. Be warned, though: The sound from the straight pipes is not for the faint of heart, small children, or small pets, and there are no “switching options” available with this addition. Scared? Take a step back to the head-turning yet sophisticated SwitchPath™ Exhaust. AWE stands by this product with a lifetime warranty, however, the straight pipes cannot be returned or exchanged based upon sound satisfaction. Please note that due to the elimination of catalytic converters, this exhaust is legal only for off-road use.
