I have just completed a good run in my car, I was truly glad of the standard system, quiet and does not tire you out. I have considered a system that I can mute too, however reckon it will still be louder than standard so have not bothered, I may be wrong. I do know I am giving away weight and some performance though with 500bhp on tap how much does one need? At 90 on the motorway it sits dead on 3000 rpm and is almost inaudible. I have experience of that Tubi, its drony is it not?

I would also be surprised if you have 500bhp running a standard exhaust and cat...

A lot of exhausts are made for and tested on manual cars. Were in the rev range you sit in a manual car is different to a tip as it has different gearing. Manufactures, well good ones do not want to make a droning exhaust therefore they will engineer any drone out at normal cruising speeds. A manual might cruise at 70 - 80 mph in 6th and 2,500 RPM put 5th in a tip would be 3,200.... I do not know the numbers and are making them up just to give an example of the theory involved.

I do not have experience of the tubi exhaust but make sure you get feedback from someone with the same gearbox.

As far as 500bhp from a zaust and a map it depends whether you are talking genuine bhp or not.... If most people tell me they have a XXXbhp car I take it with a pinch of salt. This is something I have learned in recent years!

If you want a switchable speak to 9e, best exhaust (for sound) available for a 996T IMO of course

I'd happily recommend a Carnewal, got one on my Turbo and it now sounds like it should.

No noticeable drone but I found it a very noisy car on a cruise as standard, lot of road noise.
