Sports Exhaust

Is there anyway that I can change the settings on the sports exhaust so that I can start the car in default mode with the sports exhaust switched off? Then when I want to scare a few grannys make the switch manually? :wink:

which car do you have ?

IIRC there is a switch with the PSE equipped cars

The PSE's require intake manifold vacuum to close the valves on the silencers that put them into quiet mode. As there is no vacuum until after the engine starts, then I doubt it would be possible to start-up in quiet mode.

If it is a fully switchable system then the only thing you can do is turn the ignition to the first stage, switch to "quiet" mode and then start up.

Apparently it is not possible to change the default to automatically start up in an environmentally friendly fashion.

There's not much environmentally friendly about a Porsche is there?

The sound of a beautiful engine should be a pleasure at any time of the day! I really don't see there problem. :twisted:

The funny thing is, I think all our neighbours say a similar thing, mine say that they have a window that rattles when I start mine up in the morning (with no PSE). At least they don't complain though!

i can understand it, its bloody annoying being woken up when you don't want to be woken up.



A mate at work is always moaning about his neighbour who has a TVR tuscan ;-)

It seems to be the obvious solution and they might as well get double glazing at the same time! :wink:

How much should I look to pay to get one of these new fandangled
switchable exhausts? I'm off the the OPC in East London tomorrow morning to have my MOT and I'm thinking of getting one from them, but will it cost me an arm and a leg or can I get one elsewhere for just the cost of an arm?

i think supply and fit is around 2k+ at OPC, less if you get it fitted by an indie.

Obviously requirements differ, but i have a non-switchable PSE. i have never been in a situation where i wished i had a switch. In fact i got the vlaves clamped open to get rid of the cutout between 30-44mph and to make sure they are ALWAYS on.

Can understand not wishing to offend neighbours etc, but the PSE sounds sooooo sexy i don't think a switch is worth the extra cash (its the switch bit that accounts for most of the labour charge during fitting)
