    Anyone waiting for PSE?

    I was wondering if anyone had a 997.2 on order with the Sports Exhaust?  When have you been promised yours?  I've been promised a Feb build with April delivery.  I'm DYING to know how the 997.2 sounds with the PSE!!  Anyone with any news/updates on the PSE for the 997.2?

    Re: Anyone waiting for PSE?

    I've also been promised April delivery with PSE on 02/02/09 release. I htink it's going to sound a bit louder than the old PSE...at least I hope it does or that would be £1,249.00 down the drain then Smiley

    Re: Anyone waiting for PSE?

    From the owner's handbook I was given with the car, when describing the PSE there is picture of a PSE button next to the Sport Plus button to switch on/off PSE. This button didn't exist on 997.1 with Sport Chrono.

    If it is really like this, it means that on 997.2 you will be able to switch on/off the exhaust independently of the Sport Mode. On 997.1 cars with Sport Chrono, the PSE was only operative with Sport mode and above a number of RPM and also it couldn't be switched off independently.

    Does anyone have more info?

    Production availability 02/2009 and Tequipment 04/2009.

    February is for OE.

    For retrofit the expected date is 04/2009. Be patient!

    Re: Anyone waiting for PSE?

    Moved back the production of my car to accommodate the PSE release in 02/09. Can't wait to hear what the note sounds like, the standard exhaust is rather sonically challenged.  Unfortunately in Dubai, we cannot go aftermarket, some tasty aftermarket kit available out there that might free a few ponies and also weigh less.  For you guys with less draconian warranty small print, I would suggest the aftermarket route rather than filling the bulging Porsche coffers. 

    Re: Anyone waiting for PSE?

    Yup, Liquid, you have a great point.  The aftermarket exhausts let you do much more (i.e. choose whether you want the whole system or just a cat-back) and can give some real performance gains and weight savings (in addition to the better sound all the time at a fraction of the cost of the PSE).  I think both of us are in the same boat, i.e. would have happily installed an aftermarket system if it wasn't for the UAE warranty rules here (as you know I found out first hand in the case of my Boxster!).  Frankly I'm not looking forward to conducting a 'pre-flight check' (Sport Mode, PSE on, Manual gear-change, and so on) before I set off every time! 

    But I think for some the 'convenience' of being able to use the car as a cruiser / GT car with the PSE off when they want it makes a good case for PSE.

    I agree. Although I still love the PSE on my car, there are much better products with better gains for much less than what you would have to fork out with at Porsche.

    Re: Anyone waiting for PSE?

    I dont know about the 997.2 but on my 997.1, the PSE sounds really good with the plug disconnected at the back. Ive also read in a few places that it apparently gives you just under 10 hp (although unconfirmed by Porsche due to legality issues I suppose).

     Just ordered the headers and air filter from the X51 kit, hope that gives me a bit more noise and maybe a few ponies too if im lucky.

    My friend got his 997.2 about a week ago and I must say it doesnt sound too shabby for a stock exhaust C2S. Its definitely quite a bit louder and sharper than a stock exhausted 997.1 version.


    Re: Anyone waiting for PSE?

    March build, April delivery... can't wait... I hope it's loud enough!!!

    Re: Anyone waiting for PSE?

            Did you realy get a date for your retrofit delivery ?

    I asked my dealer on wednesday and he said he still has no news on any time delivery. I was not even able to order it !!!!

    Please let me know so I can put pressure on them in case you have a valid delivery date, or a valid order

    Re: Anyone waiting for PSE?

    hey Gnil, sorry for the misunderstanding !!!, I was a bit excited yesterday !! Smiley

    We got told when the car was delivered the retrofit for pse will be for April, so I took that date as the retrofit delivery !!...Also we've been told that various times, as the PSE retrofit is a present from the dealer ! ! Smiley

    This week will have to go to the dealer to see the cayenne diesel engine, and also start putting pressure for the PSE deliveries....and I'm afraid they wont have any news regarding this.....but well will let you know !!...I am sure in some weeks there are new official photos and official delivery dates!

    Re: Anyone waiting for PSE?

    to the best of my knowledge, as with the 1st gen. 997, the first batch of PSE received at the factory go to factory installed cars as a priority, and excess production later is sent to dealers for retro-fit... I wouldn't expect retro-fit exhausts to be available at dealers till june...
