While the 2020 Corvette can be had with an upgraded exhaust system from the factory via the optional Z51 Performance Package, some owners will undoubtedly look to the aftermarket when swapping in new pipes. That’s where companies like AWE come in.
Based out of Philadelphia, AWE specializes in offering high-performance products for a wide variety of sports cars and speed machines. One of its latest offerings is the new Track Edition exhaust for the 2020 Corvette C8, as seen in the following short video.
Featuring a unique, asymmetric, high-flow design, AWE says its new Track Edition exhaust system for the 2020 Corvette adds upwards of 15 horsepower and 19 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. The exhaust is made from three-inch, CNC mandrel-bent, T304L stainless steel, and shaves an impressive 39 pounds of weight compared to the stock exhaust system.
The exhaust tips are measured at 4.5 inches, with a double-walled slash cut design. Customers can choose between either a chrome silver finish, or a diamond black finish. The system also features AFM Valve simulators and an aluminum heat shield. The system is not valved, as the company claims its design renders the valves unnecessary. Installation of the system is a simple bolt-in affair.
The company’s new exhaust was engineered, designed, and manufactured in-house at AWE, and includes the AWE Perfect Fitment Guarantee, the AWE No CEL Guarantee, and the AWE Lifetime Warranty.
Now, interested customers can give the system a listen in the following brief video, which features a 2020 Corvette revving and accelerating with the AWE Track Edition exhaust installed:
As a reminder, the 2020 Corvette C8 is equipped with the mid-mounted, naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 engine. The latest C8 generation rides on the all-new Y2 platform, with production taking place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
