A new exhaust can make a world of difference when it comes to driving experience. Now, Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra truck owners with the 5.3L V8 engine up front can upgrade their pickup with AWE’s new 0FG exhaust system.
The new AWE 0FG exhaust is designed specifically for fourth-generation Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups, and fits to the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine. The exhaust features three-inch piping and a cat-back design, as well as a throaty new tone that’s sure to get noticed. What’s more, the new exhaust includes AWE’s patented drone-canceling technology for easy cruising.
The 0FG exhaust is made from American-sourced .065-inch thick T304L stainless steel, and bolts right up to the factory components.
A number of exhaust tip options are offered, with both flat bumper and bumper cutout applications accommodated. This includes five-inch, double-walled, straight-cut tips for flat bumper applications, in either a chrome silver or diamond black finish, as well as quad four-inch, double-walled, slash-cut tips for bumpers cutout applications, also available in chrome silver or diamond black.
The quad tip outlets feature ball and socket joints for a clean installation. The exhaust also includes an adapter for 156.95-inch wheelbases, as well as AWE’s Perfect Fitment Guarantee, a “No CEL Guarantee” and a lifetime warranty. Per AWE’s website pricing for the new Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 5.3L 0FG exhaust starts at $1,195.
To note, the L84 gasoline engine in the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra is rated from the factory at 355 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 383 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm. Potential horsepower and torque gains were not disclosed.
The new AWE exhaust can be heard in the video below, including startup, revving, and heavy acceleration. The demonstration video also lets us hear the system from inside the cabin when cruising at 60 mph:
