    Porsche sport Exhaust

    I recently purchased a 2010 Boxster, 6 speed with Sport Chrono Package. I am interested in adding the Porsche Exhaust System, and now seems to be a good time with the 20% discount for pca members. The price of the system with tips is variable, I have contacted several dealers and with the 20% discount ranges from a high of $2800 to a low of $2000.
    I have downloaded the TSB from Porsche, 12/09 edition, and the installation is out of my league. Dealers state that installation takes between 7-8 hours and the cost is around $1100.
    For those that have added the system as a retrofit, are these prices in line?
    Thanks

    Mine came as an ordered option, but $2k seems low as it's $2500 when ordered from the factory.

    If you want a better option, pass on the PSE and get the FVD Export (Loud) CAT-back exhaust system. Less weight, you get +11 HP/TQ, and the sound is so much better than PSE!! And it costs less and only about 1 and 1/2 hours to install - what is not to like! I have one on my 2009 Boxster S and absolutely love it.

    I am also trying to source the PSE. $200 sounds like a good deal. Can you pls PM me your source? Thanks.

    I was going to order PSE for my 2011 CS during the build, but I eventually came to the same conclusions as you have. I have ordered an FVD Export to be installed at the time of delivery (mid July). My decision was based solely on the great reviews from this forum and video / audio clips. I can't wait to hear it live!

    Re: Porsche sport Exhaust

    I want to assure that the warranty remains in force and for now I want all equipment to be Porsche OEM. If there is a problem with the system, I am able to return to the dealer for warranty. Porsche Tequipment comes with a 2 year warranty.
    There is presently a 20% discount on Porsche OEM parts to PCA members.
    I am getting quotes from dealers here in Florida anywhere from $2000 and up for the system and about $1100 for installation. This also includes the wire harness and the exhaust button that you also need. I am considering 2 diffferent dealers, and their quotes are close, around $3100 for the system including installation.

    Redbear installed one on his 10 CS after taking delivery and the dealer chared him about $3500 installed.

    For the price, I recommend aftermarket. Costs less, adds HP & TQ, weights less and sounds more aggresssive. As far as I know, the PSE doesn't add any HP as the 2nd set of cats are still there. The only convenience with PSE is that you have the botton but in most cases I think people always keep the valve open.

    Re: Porsche sport Exhaust

    I chose PSE for my car but if your dealer is keen to work with aftermarket I would consider that option. Rhonda at FVD once sent a PM indicating FVD working on unit similar to PSE but with power. Capistro has this feature already. Heard Borlaicon on 3.2 05 Boxster last week and was really impressed.
    For better or worse I just stayed stock. I don't think there are any right answers on this, but lots of opinions. PSE definitely better than stock sound, but for highway cruising I'm usually in normal PASM and PSE off. Probably a reflection on my age and personality. You should choose what fits your style best.

    On Gen 1 cars PSE adds a nice midrange torque & HP bump perhaps 10-12 HP. A broad increase under the curve. No increase up top

    Evidence, please? Even Porsche AG themselves says the PSE does not provide any HP/TQ gains, only a difference in appearance and sound.

    Re: Porsche sport Exhaust

    All the research that I have done indicates that there is no power gain with the PSE. I am having the system installed this coming Monday. By the way, the PSE option for the 2011 Boxster and Cayman is now $2800, the price is up from $2500, so I feel that $3100 installed is not a bad price. The 20% PCA incentive comes in handy, otherwise my cost would be close to 4 grand.

    Stock sound is pretty quiet on the DFI cars so I don't think you'll regret this.Very pleased with my PSE but usually turn it off when highway cruising. It's nice to have that option.
