coincidence, when last night I was filling up in the local petrol station, when an elderly gentleman came up to me and said "is your car alright?" I said yes I think so?? why?
he then said "because it sounds terrible"..............lol, my engine is very quiet, but I have the gundo/PSE hack and she does "burble" a little, and I only have the 1.5 inch bore, with teckart exhaust tips.
but to the uninitiated a flat 6 (boxer/Subaru type) do sound lumpy..
bless him.

You buy the pipe work pre-bent from ebay, that what I did, then just cut it the the desired length and the ends to the correct angle for welding, easy.

im local to you (GU12)
and had to travel to Hayes to get mine done, they did a good job of the exhaust, but I could not recommend them because they did not treat the car properly, and there was "hidden extras" on the price, they advertise on ebay for the gundo hack £299 fitted.

May be a bit far to travel, I had my 997.1 C2S "hacked" last week by Brookspeed in Southampton, price was ok £350, service was OK, sounds brutal... I made a short video on Saturday but it's very poor, I'll do another one this weekend & post it

You can do it on the gen 2 , but there are mixed reviews. Am getting it done next week on my gen 2 with a 2" by-pass.

I have also discussed with the exhaust shop about doing a similar hack on the centre box section as it does not serve a purpose it would seem but reduce noise levels.

Am going to attempt to do some decent before and after video's as its been a nightmare trying to find any solid info. Just a lot of posts saying its a waste of time. I've had a PSE on my 996/997.1/Cayman so hope i can give it a good review/write up.

Excellent, is that the guy in Milton Keynes? Advertises his services on Ebay for about £200?
