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.
