Hi all.
I need 2 silencers for my 2002 996.
I'm thinking Top gear sports silencers.
Has anyone had these as I'm concerned they may be too loud
I want something a little louder than standard but not too noisy.
I've read bad reviews about the danske and that's put me off them.
Any help with recommendations would be appreciated.
Cheers

I got myself ebay ones with valves for very nice price when open loud closed almost Porsche sound Laughing, perhaps TOP GEAR got better quality but the mine are not far away from it, also units are smaller and much lighter thumbsup

I suggest you go for the TG mild sport as they're not too loud but louder than stock. Szymon's switchable system is also a great deal and has the noisy basterd button.

+1 Top Gear Mild Sport. 4,000 miles and quite happy with them. Just right for me with their 200 cell and Helmholtz delete. Not noisy and very little drone at 4,000 rpm steady-state.

For info
Standard Car + Chinese 3:1 ebay manifold + Standard Cats + Designtek supremacy exhaust + Standard exhaust tips = 110.5 Db (measured at 50cm @ 45 degrees).

I need an alternative exhaust to quieten it it down to run at Oulton Park in Sept. Anyone got any definitive Db measurements for topgear?

I don't have specific measurements but my TopGear valved exhaust was 'close enough' in loud mode at Castle Combe last week with a 100dB limit. Still on all original components apart from the TogGear back boxes which went on to replace the PSE earlier this year.

I have top gear mild boxes on mine alongside the oem manifold and cats.

They measured less than 0.5 db under the stationary limit at Bedford last month. I don't recall what the actual reading or limit were though. Regardless, it didn't set off the driveby microphones.

I have switchable Top Gear silencers waiting to go on... don’t forget there is a forum discount code. You should be able to find it with a forum search.

Anyone gone from a PSE to TG Mild Sports? How does the sound compare to PSE open?

I have PSE that are coming to the end of their life, would prefer to fit a non-switchable system for simplicity, and I only ever run my PSE 'open'.

Cheers

Bit pricier but I've been eyeing up the Tubi Style exhausts - they make aftermarket exhausts for all sorts of exotic cars and they are hand made in Italy. I especially like it the R (loud) version which is demonstrated in the video below. They don't appear to have that droney sound that the "budget" sports exhausts seem to have and sound like a more higher pitched noise that only gets loud if you really stomp the throttle pedal.

I watched endless videos of the topgear exhausts and whilst they are good value and look well made I just don't like the sound. Its definitely a personal thing so make sure you listen to a few before you buy.

I went for Milltek Sport with top gear manifolds and sport CAT.

I get people complementing me on the sound. They bring a smile to my face every time I drive

I’m not sure about the mild or sports-only exhaust, but the Top Gear switchable exhaust is also the Design Tek switchable exhaust.

So you may find that one of the Design Tek exhausts on Design911 is the Top Gear mild one.

I’d prefer getting it from Top Gear though for the lifetime warranty.
