Default PSE One Year In

Got to say it cost way too much and I'm so glad I got it. Looking into how I can get it for my riding lawn mower.

I hate PSE and the backfiring sounds. I wouldnít have wanted it even if was free. My car 18 C4S sounds very nice without all that popping and crackling sounds.
Maybe a controversial topic. Such as MT versus PDK.

Very muted and not as obnoxious as with PSE. Also with PSE, the exhaust note is rather gruff. Without it, the sound the car makes, sounds nicer to me. Doesnít sound like a tractor.

I turn on PSE even if I'm just jockeying the cars around in the garage or backing it out to the driveway for a bath.

I donít think PSE for the 996 models have the popping and cracking sound. Was this new for the 991, or was it there in the 997 as well?

PSE for the 991 is aggressive. More aggressive than the 996 or 997. I had a 997 with PSE and it was nothing like my 991. Most NA Porsches with freer flowing exhausts (aftermarket) crackle on the overrun.

I wish my car sounded like this.
None of the manufactured rthymic backfiring sounds engineered in the PSE that sound especially aggressive in the 991.2.

Same here. You get even more snap, crackle pop in sport plus.

Didnít have PSE on my 997.2 Targa. Had to settle for a Fister exhaust. My Number one option on my 991.2 Cab S was PSE. Couldnít be happier. I put it on as soon as I start her up. Even before putting the top down.

​​​​​​My car 18 C4S sounds fabulous with all the popping and crackling sound. Paid through the nose for that pleasure and no regrets.

I love the PSE. I have a C4S cabrio and when you go under a overpass and downshift wow the echo is awesome. You hear that roaring backfire noise. But you gotta time it right .
