This was the message from the garage (Porsche specialists but independent)

Hi, if you are talking about the Gundo Hack, this is something we can carry out. The Hack itself is £250. this will require the silencers to be removed which depending on condition and fixings that are needed to be replaced is £195 upwards.

The example they then gave was £600.

Seems steep to me?

All the bolts on your system will be in some sort of state of decay. Chances are that during the removal there will be some snapped bolts. There will be a good 3-4hrs r&r involved if it goes well.

I'm only relaying this info from my local Indy when I enquired last week about swapping out my exhaust for a new one. At £400, I'm having a stab myself, but going in with my eyes wide open.

The two prices I've had are,

PCW who comes to you and he wants £320 all in done.

DW have a winter deal on at £225 + vat but you have to go to them.

Hi - thank you.

Do you have links to those 2? Both sound good.

Hi All,

I'd like to get this done to my 997.2 C2.

I live in south west Wales - can anyone recommend someone not too far away?

Thanks

Thanks for the advice and information.

I'd rather take it to someone that has done it before to be truthful.

How did you get on this morning?
Happy with the result?

Yes all went well , had to dremel off all the bolts and replace with new , went with a 1.5” bypass , first thoughts are that it’s maybe a bit too loud but haven’t drove it yet so will update Monday , if it is I’ll be re doing it for a 1in bypass ,

Hello all,

In preparation for doing my Gundo hack, which bolts and brackets will I need to procure, in anticipation of them breaking or dissolving to dust. Thanks

FYI - I’ve had mine re done !!!!
The 35mm pipe was far too loud and drony !!
I’ve had it cut out and a 28mm pipe put in , now much better and same sort of tone and volume as factory sports exhaust 👍

Just had my 4th Gundo done.

Instead of coming to me, this time I drove to Milton Keynes and got Paul (PCW) to do the work at his house (this allowed me to jump the queue by a month).

As always, it was a first class job, perfect welding, buffed up tailpipes, all bolts replaced with stainless etc for £250.


This time I used a Milltek Crossover pipe instead of the fabspeed X-Pipe I had before, and it's much louder, I recorded it at 98db when you blip it.

So in conclusion, if you want a first class job, by someone who can come to you and has done literally hundreds of them, go to Paul (PCW Exhausts) and if you have a gen2 and want volume, use crossover pipes instead of an x-pipe.

Les, I also have a Gen2 3.6 with crossover pipe. Did you go for conventional gundo, or the banana?

I went loud and did the conventional bypass.
The banana mod still uses some of the baffles (like PSE) and is more subtle.

My wife knows when to put the kettle on now as she can hear me from the next street. Surprised
