PostPosted: Mon Feb 03, 2020 11:01 am    Post subject: Exhaustive List Reply with quote

Morning all

I know we’ve had loads and loads of exhaust threads and I’m loathed to start another one – but I do so to see if I can get a different set of replies (see what I did with the thread title....!)

I know I’m going to need a new exhaust soon and, knowing I’ll never want to sell this car, I’m going to invest good money in making sure I get a good one.

So – two quick questions if I may.

1. Can we get a full list of the most prominent manufacturers and put them in quality order; for example we have Kline, Top Gear, Dansk etc – can we make (say) a top 10 or top 6 and put them in order of quality (NOT price!)
2. Secondly who manufactured PSE boxes for Porsche and did I see recently that someone was trying to do a group buy …?? Anyone remember/have a linky to the thread…??

Currently I’m thinking of getting new headers and down pipes, 200-cell cats and replacement PSE boxes and having the whole lot ceramic treated before fitting

Any thoughts and input gratefully received…

Dansk were the manufacturer of the exhaust for Porsche on the 996 (and 993 I think) cars.

I had a Kline on my old 4s which was so good I then bought one for my turbo as you know.

If it were me (and knowing how you like PSE) I'd be looking to see if Dansk still did a PSE system and getting that. Failing that I'd look at Porsche PSE back boxes, then Kline boxes and x-pipes.

I've recently discovered that the DesignTek system from D911 sounds identical to a non-PSE stock exhaust and is fully stainless. Quite nice but not PSE nice.

Dansk were not the suppliers to Porsche for 993 or 996. Gillet or Bischoff were.

Well you learn something every day.

That might be why so many people are unhappy with their Dank boxes then Osh 😆

Send it to Haywood and Scott to repair the silencers
worst case is around £200 per side a lot cheaper than a aftermarket
that is my plan when mine starts to blow.

Just get yourself down to Bridport have a lovely day by the sea and let Topgear sort it all out for you. Great exhausts lovely people and best of all great prices.

Just my tuppence worth, I’d be happy with an Akraprovic exhaust for my 997.1 but they don’t do one, the only other one I’d have is a genuine Porsche one after that, mine has been in for the past 12 years and it’s still going strong so to replace that with something that the hangers are going to drop off of in 18 months would really grip my sheet !

I couldn’t be bothered arguing about warranty claims on a cheap system so I’d hope that a replacement gen system “PSE” of course would last at least another 12 years,

Eisenmann did the original pse exhaust for the 996.2 at least. I’ve just replaced my 15 year old, rusting at the seams, but not blowing pse and the old one has an Eisenmann plate on it. I’ve stumped up for a genuine Porsche replacement, partly for originality and partly because I like the sound. If the old one was still going after fifteen years, the quality must be alright too.

Szymon fit some switchable boxes on his C4S last year and I must say - it sounds rather nice. They were a bargain price too - think he paid something like £600 for the full set-up.

Was that the Spyder performance ones? Ive got the Topgear 200 cell x-pipe with mild rear silencers. Been pretty pleased with them after 3-4000miles. Saying that I am contemplating going louder.

So my preferred solution to keep the original PSE setup is to get the seams welded and new vacuum actuators, trouble is actuators are circa £137 each with Porsche tax. Has anyone got a more cost effective supplier of these?, thanks.

I replaced the actuators (well, one actually) on my PSE with a Designtek one from Design911. Only £37+VAT.
https://www.design911.com/Sport-exhaust-vacuum-replacement-unit/prod141959/

Works absolutely fine, but the only caveats are that the rod is not as long as OE, and they don't come with a ball joint, which would have been OK but the old one crumbled at the thread on removal.

A clever friend of mine welded the old ball joint onto a couple of bolts, which he threaded on to the rod, to get it to the right length. If you could find a new ball joint that had a longer sleeve then that would also get round it.

But yes, I also intend to get the seams welded on my OE PSE boxes when the time comes (PCW Exhaust Mods apparently do a great job).

Capristo exhausts sound absolutely fantastic on Ferraris... if they make 996 exhausts they would be worth considering.

Great choice! Need some proper before and after videos as there is not much on YouTube.

Love the sound of my dansk (super sound) back boxes but the problem is the flexi joints are made of what I can only guess is foil from a kit Kat wrapper
As I dont know anyone that has had dansk exhausts that the flexi joints haven't split

I have a Kline with 200 cel cats which replaced a pse system.
In my opinion the sound from the Kline isn’t a patch on the pse.
Between 2500 and 3500 rpm the drone you get from the Kline hurts your ears.
In every other part of the rev range they sound very smooth.
It’s very nice quality but I will never buy an aftermarket exhaust again, I should have replaced what was fitted by Porsche, they know what they’re doing.
I also believe the car is down on power, as soon as I collected the car it just didn’t feel quite as potent, like it had lost a few bhp.
I know sound is subjective and this is only my opinion.

I had a Kline on my C4s and it sounded so good. Well made, fitted perfectly and had nothing but compliments on how it sounded. Mine had zero drone to be honest.
