The AWE Catback exhaust offers perfect fitment, patented drone-canceling 180 Technology®, aggressive tip options, and a soundtrack that only AWE can deliver, all proudly engineered, designed, and manufactured in-house, in the USA. Presenting the AWE Exhaust Suite for the 2015+ WRX!

The Touring Edition Catback is for drivers who like their BOXER rumble to be deep, hearty, and full of crackles all without any interior drone at cruising speeds. A direct bolt-on, full 3” straight-through design with a resonated mid section and tailored mufflers in the rear, the Touring Edition acts as the sophisticated, drone-free member of the WRX exhaust suite. If you’re looking to liven up your commute while retaining civil in-cabin characteristics, this version is for you.

Thanks to the design and construction of 180 Technology® resonators, the internals will not break down and degrade over time causing tone change. Full-bodied rumble for life from the point of installation.

This configuration provides the best ratio of interior refinement and exterior rumble on the market.


  • Specially designed for the unique acoustic properties of the WRX - this system is not an STI clone 
  • Rasp-free aggressive BOXER® tone without the drone
  • Proudly designed, engineered, and manufactured in-house at AWE, in the USA
  • Max gains of 8 hp and 4 ft-lbs of torque at the wheels
  • Handcrafted from 3” CNC mandrel-bent, U.S.-sourced .065” wall T304L stainless steel
  • Direct bolt-on for factory-like simplicity
  • Less is more: clean, straight-through design maximizes performance
  • 102mm quad tips in chrome silver
  • Perfect fitment, guaranteed
  • AWE No Check Engine Light Guarantee
  • Lifetime warranty (one year on tip finishes)

AWE Touring WRX Exhaust - Step-up from Stock but still Tame

First off - Subimods is great to work with. 5 stars working with them and I'm happy they're in my state so I can make local pickups of parts occasionally.

This exhaust is perfect for keeping a stock car daily drive-able. I commute ~50 miles each way to work, and drone is nearly non-existent. Sometimes when decelerating and downshifting I notice some drone in 2nd gear, but it's extremely minimal. When giving it some gas it does really wake up - especially compared to stock. To some, it can leave something to be desired. I think when I finally make the jump and replace the J-pipe this will keep a perfect balance of sounding great but not obnoxious.

Some notes:
I have a stock car, and this included everything I needed to install - no extra adapters needed.
The first thousand or so miles of "break-in" seemed louder than it does now, about 10k miles later.
Build quality seems extremely solid. No issues at all almost a year after install.
I use NEVR-DULL to polish the tips once a month or so, as they do turn black fairly quick.


Thank you for the kind extensive 5 Star Review and added pics! The AWE Touring Edition Catback Exhaust is an amazing exhaust system! As you said it is perfect for DD, AWE has worked extremely hard to create a drone free system and they have done an amazing job! Also as you said everything is included to install making it a simple bolt on application! Enjoy the new sound!


Sounds great less drone

Have this connected to my Grimm speed header and cobb jesi j pipe on my 21 wrx. Sounds great . Good quality. Way less drone on highway than stock sti set up and plenty loud wot!


The AWE Touring Edition Catback Exhaust is the perfect exhaust to give you more rumble without blowing you out of the cabin! It is the perfect step up after OE and with your additional parts definitely gives you more performance! Thank you for the 5 Stars!

Nice exhaust & sound

Solid exhaust. I like the sound, not too loud but you know it’s there.

Only downside was the tips did not fit the best and small shims needed installed for installed clamp to get tight enough around the exhaust pipe.


Thank you for your review of the AWE Touring Edition Catback Exhaust for the 2015-2021 WRX. We are glad to hear that you like the sound of the exhaust and find it to be at an appropriate volume. We apologize that the tips did not fit perfectly and required additional adjustments. The best way to adjust the tips is to leave everything loose and begin tightening back to front, ensuring the tips are where you want them. We hope this helps. Enjoy!
