K so far I know about the Europipe,

however I am interested to hear about the other options, and in particular the PSE from OPC, cost etc

What have others experienced, this is the one area I think modern porsches really lack in comparison to Ferrari etc

Every GT3 I have ever heard always sounded pretty fantastic to me. I assumed that they all had the PSE as standard.

SSport,
GT3s sound fantastic out of the box, but PSE is not standard and most don't have it.

Daz,
I had PSE on my GT3 before the Manthey mods. It really sounded fantastic and is a definite upgrade over the standard zorst, although it makes the car slightly noisy on static tests. It registered 103db static at 4500rpm which makes it a problem for circuits that only do the static noise test. However, drive by noise was never a problem including strict places like Castle Combe (I sneaked on without a noise test...) and Bedford.

Get it down to Powerflow - two 5" slash-cut Jap-style back-boxes would just do the job!

Cargraphics R system comes in either loud or quiet and looks the business, or there are 2 or 3 titanium systems out there now, Kreissieg do one which saves 40kg, all from behind the rear axle which is the best place to loose weight on a 911. All depends on how shocked your wallet will be

Oh and you're spot on with your comment about ferrari's Daz, since the 355 they have sounded like formula 1 cars when you nail 'em.

im looking for Santa to bring me a PSE (but not sure if its the same bit of kit you need as I dont have GT3).

Been getting prices today, Reading want 1020.37 + Vat and 8 hours to fit at 105.00 + Vat Per hour. Best so far Ive found from an OPC is 1582 inc vat supplied and fitted.

Question: I have sports chrono. Ive heard there is a switch to turn the PSE on, is this part of the chrono switch or will i have a separate switch?

Daz, I believe you can fit the switchable PSE to the GT3.

on a different note, Milltek Exhaust Systems do one for the GT3 as well.....

and the Tubi and Cargraphics systems are some of the best out there

unless you got 9k to spare then got the pukka K410 system, which actually costs 17k because you need the suspension, brakes and a few extra bits before you can finally say no to the aero upgrades ! Surprised

PSE sounds good !

Yep - you're quite right - my '04 GT3 has PSE fitted, with the switch, by Porsche Cars GB - great noise and completely warranty legal Wink
