Thats nice, and trust worthy hand written Where do you live?

What's the 60ft time?

My local track is 2400 feet above sea level and notoriously slow. 110f+ during the summer.

I believe Car and Driver also ran a 11.2 and 3.1 0-60 in a 991.2 GTS.

This thing is too quiet for me. Want to do something, but if the X-pipe isn't that effective, I'll just go catless and wait for other options down the road.
I'm planning on getting tuned, not too worried about CEL. How are the O2 spacers with the catless. Will the AFR be affected by the mislead values from the downstream sensor? Asking, because my F30 had issues when I messed around with the sensor voltage to trick the DME into readiness (ran really rich).

All and any input (that's constructive and relevant) is appreciated.
I have SpeedTech whole system, catted and it is loud enough for me. We have a GT3 in the family and it sounds very close to GT3 sound, not as angry of course. No drone.
I also have heard exhaust note in person from a car equips with Fabspeed headers, high flow 200 cell cats and x-pipe. It sounds deeper than my car with SpeedTech full system and a tad louder, very little.
I don't think you will be happy with just x-pipe, sound wise.

PM me if you want to hear SpeedTech system from my C2. John with SpeedTech also posted the sound clip here as well.

My pleasure sir, and looking forward to the comparison videos : ) If I might recommend giving the X-Pipe a bit of a breakin before comparison, resonators/mufflers can sometimes take a couple hundred miles to "set"

Bumping this thread with an update.

Have received my X-pipe and tips today. Hoping to install it sometime in the coming days. Traveling next week, so aiming to have it done by Saturday. I did take some stock exhaust footage. Going to try and get a GoPro + mic video for the stock exhaust done tomorrow.

Will try and document the install process as best as I can. Originally planned on getting the car up on stands and going at it.... still might do that....but might try and remove the rear bumper and heat shielding on the ground (my arms are able to reach into the wheel wells and reach the in fasteners).
Stay tuned

I have a 2018 Carrera cab with the standard exhaust. Too quiet. I have ordered the Fabspeed x-pipe and itís being installed on July 3rd. Iíll check back in after running it in for a few hundred miles. I ordered it with the black chrome tips. Iíll post some pictures when itís all done.

I've been thinking of getting one as I find the 991.2 fairly quiet in town, - truth be said, I think it's plenty loud with the windows down and sunroof open, just not intoxicatingly loud. I just did a 400 mile trip - interrupted overnight but all in under 24 hours and after being in a lab all day, I found myself occasionally pining for a quieter ride on the highway heading home and missing my BMW 750 - even the previous Panamera 4 S V8 with PSE did drone slightly on long highway trips, in my opinion. I yet again find myself going back and forth about the exhaust upgrade. Certainly great fun in town and on shorter or fun trips, but will I cope with drone or loudness on a 6+ hour trip after possibly having worked or had abbreviated sleep??? I know.... first world questions....

Bueller here. Iíve installed the x-pipe yesterday. Only 50 miles of so so far. Initial impression? LOVE IT. Very happy right off the bat. No sense of drone and I was listening for it. Love the tone and I expect it to get better. LOVE the crackles in Sport mode. Didnít expect that. Nice upgrade for the money for sure. Iíll post a few sound clips this weekend.
