The AWE performance exhaust suite for the Porsche Cayman 718 provides amazing sound coupled with power gains. The exhaust comes in three different types based on whether your Cayman has the PSE option included or not. For PSE equipped vehicles, the SwitchPath exhaust allows the PSE system to open valves and bypass the muffler sections at higher RPM to produce maximum volume. On Non-PSE cars, the track or touring Edition exhaust option deepens the tone, adds volume and increases power gains.
The SwitchPath exhaust is comprised of a matched valve path and non-valve inlets. These connect with two straight-through pipes designed specifically for Porsche’s new 718 Cayman. The SwitchPath™ Exhaust retains the use of the original PSE valve operation in the factory system, while providing a modest increase in power and optimizing volume. The straight-through muffler design does not have acoustic packing material and therefore will retain its tones over time.
The SwitchPath™ Exhaust responds to your driving in the same way the factory exhaust does. Once the ECU opens the valves, the tone and volume produced from the SwitchPath™ exhaust jump to a higher level. Rapidly, you can go from sophisticated street car to max volume by simply opening the throttle. With the valves closed, the SwitchPath exhaust provides a deep rumble and exotic tones that are aggressive but yet refined.
Touring and Track Editions – Non PSE Cars
The non-valve Touring and Track edition exhausts are designed for non-PSE equipped vehicles. The exhaust is constructed in exactly the same way and produces the deep tones you would expect from AWE. Without the valves, the Touring Edition volume is lower at higher rpms and the exhaust maintains a drone free sound at highway speeds. The track version ramps the volume considerably at all rpm levels but offers a 10LB weight saving over the standard exhaust.
AWE offers three choices of tips for the 718 Cayman Exhaust:
- Dual outlet 102mm diamond black tips
- Dual outlet 102mm chrome silver tips
- Dual Outlet 76mm Carbon

+ Our Opinion
Very high quality exhaust with easy fitment and really good sound. Power gains are modest but control from the PSE function is maintained – great feature and a good way to get volume when you want to. Great value for non-pse cars – with the Touring edition really nice sound without breaking the bank and of course no emission mods so it’s street legal. The track version has really good sound but you need to be sure you can deal with the volume at all times.
Installation is pretty straight forward and doesn’t require the rear bumper to be removed. AWE includes new hardware to make the job simple. For the Switchpath exhaust, connection of the valves is really easy and this job shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours. On some models you might have to drill two mount holes in the rear support bracket. If you’re not comfortable with installing yourself, we’d recommend you search our directory for a local specialist who can install this for you – or contact us and we’ll recommend a friendly local specialist shop for you.
