Interested to hear your remarks. What tires did you have before these? Just street or any track use planned at all? I need to replace my PZ's before the next track day and couldn't wait the 8-10 weeks they said it would take to get these, so i went with MPSS instead. But I look forward to the next chance I get to mount the PS4's.

I like the Porsche insignia in the barrel btw!

Excellent wheel choice. The HRE FF01's are hands down the best bang for the buck you can get. They sell like hotcakes with my customers because of their affordable price.

And nice touch with the tire lettering as well!

I still had the original P Zero's before the Michelin 4S and I don't track this particular car. I really haven't had them long enough to give a useful impression, especially comparing to worn out tires.
I can tell you I went for a spirited drive in the canyons west of Boulder on Saturday morning and they stuck pretty good even at 45 degrees.

I only had to wait four weeks for delivery and had them mounted and Road Force balancing, $1,450.00 total.

The hardest part about it was removing the bumper cover, the installation of the screens themselves to maybe took 10 minutes. Good product.

Warranty all depends on your dealership so I would ask, although I have had no clients of mine run into warranty issues to date with exhaust upgrades.

No longer listen to the radio, just crack my window for now and once summer comes Targa top comes down.....
Could not have described it better myself Jack, and I appreciate all the kind words! The cats are indeed the biggest sound improvement on the PSE cars. The Sport Headers change the pitch just a smidge more aggressive IMHO but you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference. The Sport Headers do pair extremely well with the Sport Cats for the most efficient performance gains as you crest 4000rpm

I have the Fabspeed Sport headers with the 200-cel cats on my 991.1 C2S.
The sound is definitely deeper at idle. Car pulls harder up in the higher rpm. Has a nice deep sound all the way to redline.

Only issues so far is it seems to idle higher, could be imaginary because of the deeper sound at idle and there seems to be a slight stumble at lower RPMs if I gently press the gas and it shifts from 1st to 2nd. If I'm on it no stumble.
Other than that I like it. Debating on upgrading exhaust, but I've got the Vorsteiner diffuser and really don't want to cut into that for the new exhaust pipes.

Do you have anything done to the intake side of the car (in regards to that stumble). PM heading your way on the exhaust, should be able to get you some more sound without the diffuser coming into play.
