    Owners of 997 S with PSE!

    I have a question!

    Does the nice intake sound (helmholzt resonator) dissapear when you have the PSE installed on the car or only when engaging the PSE button?

    Thanks
    Dave

    heja sverige!

    the helmholtz resonator is not removed when PSE is installed on the car, thus you can still hear the intake sound when PSE is on/off. although some people on this forum, mainly some moderator, claims that is not the case

    i would recommend you to book a test drive and try for yourself. it is pretty hard to describe the sound with words. if you hesitate between ordering PSE or not, i strongly recommend you to get PSE. from my point of view, it adds so much to the driving experience i could not be without it.

    Re: Owners of 997 S with PSE!

    I was told today by a Porsche service engineer that it didn't do anything to the (glorious) resonator. I asked him how much it was to retro-fit the PSE and he said 2500 GBP, or if i kept the same exhaust pipes then 2100.

    PSE was on my original new car spec, but I ended up getting a used car with 2000 miles on the clock (so almost new and no wait), with no PSE. So I'd love to retro-fit.

    Saying that, my only concern is that I rarely use Sports Mode on public roads, and PSE is tied into the Sports button. I KNOW there is a KBA on making this permanent (ie. always on), but at the same time I like having a quiet mode for coming home through highly residential areas. So either I have to use sport mode more (which in the wet/cold is no so safe on public roads), or have a 24/7 loud car. Hmmmmm....

    Re: Owners of 997 S with PSE!

    I use the sport mode with X51 (with PSE) also when driving on snow. It is not so critical. But I own a 997 C4S, maybe with a C2S it is different.

    You can add an additional button to the PCM front to switch the mod on/off, i.e. without activating Sport mode.

    Re: Owners of 997 S with PSE!

    The change in noise is still there but it's less subtle than PSE off, because it's louder. But I find it's still here.
