    AWE's exhaust system?????

    Thinking about insalling the exhaust system from AWE tuning. the problem is that, even though it will offer a lot of added power (theyr claming +39 bhp and +31 tq) im not too sure about the sound it produces even though there is a wave file which you can listen too.

    their address of the video
    http://www.awe-tuning.com/media/multimedia/AWE%20Tuning%20997S%20Exhaust%20System%20LoRes.wmv
    Just wanted to know if anyone has heard it live and what they thought about it (what type of sound it produces????)

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    No way will just an exhaust add that amount of power.
    I have to say I think the noise it makes on the video is like an elongated fart and it totally removes the "Porsche Sound"
    But hey just my opinion each to their own. Am still laughing at sound on video though.

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    I like the sound of that exhaust!

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    What do you think of this one?

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    Hey noosh, I thought it sounded good. Definitely comparable to all the other PSE wmv files floating around on this site, actually I couldn't tell the difference between some of them. And I definitely heard some of that classic Porsche sound.. but I doubt your gonna get an extra 39 bhp from them

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    dont forget that it states that it will add 39 with FULL exhaust and headers. So maybe its true...

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    i doubt it will give you a full 39 horsepower. But would that exhaust viod that porsche warrant? Any1 here fixed the AWE on da 997 ?

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    ya to get the numbers stated by AWE i will have to install the whole system i.e. the headers, cats etc...., and with regards to the warranty i think it will void the exhaust warranty but dont think it will effect the engine warranty, well at least that is what i was told.
    Plus i was also told by a nu,ber of people that a full exhaust system in general (i.e. not playing with the engine mechanics or software) will not effect the car in a negative way....rather what it does, is it actually hepls the car breathe better which in effects means that the actual system that porsche used was very restrictive.

    Can anyone comment or further explain the truth behind these theories????????

    thanx guys

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    Xhanoooshx, what did you exactly fix then? Howz the sound and power? Did you actually feel it? Im thinking of getting one too so id really appreciate the help man.
    Thankx!

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    AWE Sounds good but, I just ordered the Speedart full exhaust system! They claim it will add only 25hp.System includes (high flow headers, sports cats, sports mufflers,chrome tips and BMC F1 filter)
    Which ever company you choose I doubt the sound can vary that much.

    Re: AWE's exhaust system?????

    I still havnet insalled anything....im still deciding on whether is would be worth it in terms if calculating the risk it brings (have been told theres no risk) and the other thing is im still debating the sound....i really like the porsche sound of the turbo and 4S and am trying to find and after marker exhaust which sounds like it......looks like im just gonna get the AWE though.
