The AWE Tuning 2.0T Jetta GLI Touring Edition Exhaust
The Mk6 Jetta GLI Touring Edition Exhaust replaces the factory exhaust from the downpipe back, featuring a straight through resonator and AWE Tuning's 180 Technology™ in the rear muffler section.
Sound Perfection: AWE Tuning 180 Technology™
As exhaust gases exit the 2.0L Turbo engine and flow into an AWE Tuning 180 Technology™ equipped 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. By controlling the size and location of the ports and the chambers, we also control when the sound waves exit the chambers. The specific timing of when the reflected sound waves re-join the main exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies. More on AWE Tuning 180 Technology™ in the tab above.
The AWE Tuning 2.0T Jetta GLI Track Edition Exhaust
The Mk6 Jetta GLI Track Edition Exhaust replaces the factory exhaust and includes a straight through resonator, but to allow a more aggressive exhaust tone, the Track Edition does not include AWE Tuning 180 Technology™. Perfect for those who like it loud. Please note that this is a loud system and buyers should be aware. This product cannot be returned or exchanged based upon sound satisfaction.
Tip options are as follows - all of which include the AWE Tuning logo, and double walling to ensure a mirror finish even under hard usage.
90mm Slash Cut Diamond Black Tips
90mm Slash Cut Chrome Silver Tips
All tips are individually adjustable, so stagger and depth into bumper can be set according to personal taste.
The AWE Tuning 2.0T Jetta GLI Performance Downpipe
Designed to mate to the AWE Tuning® Exhaust System or any other exhaust that bolts to the factory locations, the AWE Tuning 2.0T Jetta GLI Performance Downpipe features an integrated resonator to keep the exhaust sound volume civilized even with the elimination of the very restrictive factory converters. Our downpipe is the first performance downpipe to be released with our exclusive No Check Engine Light Guarantee. The Downpipe won’t trigger the light, even on factory software. Guaranteed.
When added to the Touring Edition: Pronounced. The Touring Edition Exhaust paired with the AWE Tuning 2.0T Jetta GLI Performance Downpipe produces a sophisticated, assertive tone.
When added to the Track Edition: Aggressive. The Track Edition Exhaust paired with the AWE Tuning 2.0T Jetta GLI Performance Downpipe will wake the neighbors, and is recommended for those who like it loud. Please note that this is a loud system and buyers should be aware. This product cannot be returned or exchanged based upon sound satisfaction.
Tuning the tuning
By replacing the factory downpipe’s large resonator with a more compact but still straight through resonator, we were able to increase sound volume while adding a slightly deeper tone.
3" of CEL free power
Volkswagen’s third generation EA888 2.0T utilizes a V Band style turbo outlet flange, as opposed to the previous generation’s bolt flange. This change presented a new challenge, causing a need for a totally new product to be developed. To meet this challenge, AWE Tuning’s Engineering and Fabrication teams have developed a full 3” Performance Downpipe specific to this application which not only guarantees CEL free operation, but also offers dyno-proven gains of 24hp and 23tq at the crank on stock software with the AWE Tuning cat back exhaust.
Important Fitment Note
Have a 2013 GLI? Be sure to check your engine code (here's how) to ensure correct fitment on your vehicle. Certain engine types feature different downpipe fitments, so let’s be sure this will fit yours.
Please note: The AWE Tuning 1.8T/2.0T Jetta Performance Downpipe is for racing use only.
