Upgraded Exhaust

Hi Ladies and Gents,
 
Has anyone upgraded their standard 987.1 Exhaust to a full OE Porsche Sports Switchable system by any chance who is able to give indications of cost and benefits please?
 
Thanks in advance. 
 
Regards Neil

    not worth it on the gen 1, all the cats on in the back section which robs the car of power, just fit a cheap Remus back box or some thing.

    Radio ? NONE.
    Cup Holder? NONE
    Air Condidioning? DITTO
    A pure roadster. Reduced to the essentials
    Still the fastest...

    I retro fitted the Porsche Sport Exhaust on my 2007 987.1 Cayman 2.7 manual. It was fitted by my local OPC in a day, and was a straight forward and trouble free modification. From memory, I think it cost me £1250 fitted.
     
    The 2.7 engine sounded better afterwards, and at the time the switchable facility was fun. For an ageing boy racer anyway. The PSE kit also included the OE console switch as per factory installation. At the same time, I also fitted myself, a K&N cotton air filter. The combined result didn't make any tangible difference to performance, that I could detect. I looked upon this more as an optimisation modification. It helped the negotiations a bit when I traded-in the car. At that time not many Cayman 2.7's had the PSE option. 
     
    As David has said on the previous post, if you want a more noticeable power gain, fit an aftermarket performance exhaust from a reputable supplier.

    A lad on another forum on is having it fitted so waiting for a review but sounds good and it's switchable which is really what I'm after!

    A friend of mine had the same make of system fitted to his 996, it is very noisy!

    May not be what you had in mind, but quite a few of us rate Carnewal's offering (and circa half the cost of the Design Tek)....not a system you need to turn on or off , something you can easily live with whether pootling around town, or doing the exact opposite!

    Geoff997, Has he got the switchable system? That's the system I mentioned above which is reasonable when turned down!
    Craiglm68 The Carnewal is a definite option for me but the posting faf is a consideration if I'm honest.

    Fair comment, though it was actually quite straight forward re posting ......you only have to sort a courier to collect it  from whatever workshop is used (easy done online, cost me about £23 for a courier to collect and return to Belgium), so long as whoever fits its doesn't damage the original, it will go into the box Gert sent it over in

    Agree with  Craiglm68 -  I had one of Gerts exhaust fitted last year - the drive to Belgium is fantastic and very easy - Gert fits the exhaust while you wait and you drive away with a lovely sounding exhaust.  Its worth consideration - or just contact Gert and ask the question - he will give you the info you require.

    Cheers guys. 
    The Postal issue I will look into as expected it to be considerably more costly and a bigger faf to be honest!
    The drive to Gerts isn't an option as I don't intend going to Europe any time soon so would be a costly option.
    ill be using Revolution Porsche at Brighouse as I trust them with the job and have always been outstanding with service!
