While 95% of AWE Tuning's Performance Engineering is distributed to enthusiasts around the globe, local VW, Porsche and Audi drivers have the option to have their work done out of our Headquarters, just outside of Philadelphia, PA. AWE Tuning’s Installations Center is home to some of the finest automotive service and install technology, only trumped by our performance products themselves. The AWE Tuning Certified Installation Team is armed with expertise uniquely honed for the German performance market, and the AWE Tuning Performance product line, as well as all of the products we distribute.

For service work and to position vehicles on our Hunter alignment system, we use some of the finest automotive lifts available, from Werther International (the same Hi-9 9000lbs rated lifts are also used exclusively by the Ferrari factory). The Hi-9 features integrated rubber arm pads to eliminate any chance of marring vehicle undercarriages and hydraulic lift rams instead of failure prone cables.
Due to the large number of extreme low profile tires and very expensive wheels that we encounter and install daily, AWE Tuning uses a Hunter 3250 Tire Changer featuring a plastic mount head and articulated arm that makes it impossible to scratch a wheel and greatly eases our ability to deal with tire profiles as low as a 25 aspect ratio. Combined with our Hunter DSP9600 Wheel Balancer, we are able to successfully mount and balance up to 24 inch diameter wheel and tire combinations. Using the Split Spoke technology of this balancer, we can also hide wheel weights behind wheel spokes if the customer desires. Hunter tire changers and wheel balancers are used exclusively by the Porsche and BMW factories due to their technological superiority.
We are pleased to offer comprehensive alignment services utilizing a state-of-the-art Hunter Alignment System. This wireless system with touchless wheel clamps allows us to customize toe, camber, and caster angles to within 1/64 of an inch, as well as establish the centerline of the vehicle to ensure truly straight tracking.
In 2002, we installed an All Wheel Drive (AWD) Mustang chassis dynamometer, model MD-AWD-500-SE, to enhance our testing and tuning abilities. Since nearly 75% of the vehicles we were tuning at that time came equipped with all wheel drive, our former Two Wheel Drive (2WD) Mustang MD250 chassis dyno had become limited in its usage. However, due to its cost, an AWD chassis dyno is still a unique and rare tool amongst even leading tuning houses. Not only did we see the absolute need to install such a piece of equipment on site, but we also recognized that a proper test cell would be required to ensure valid test results. More about the AWE Tuning Dyno can be found here.
