Exclamation Poll: 997.2 Turbo S exhaust choice

Hi everyone!I just got my new turbo S to me and I love it! I am currently trying to decide on whether not I should add an aftermarket exhaust. Iíve done a lot of searches and reviewed tons of threads on the subject and have talked to a few people already but I want to put it out there for the board to see what people think. I have thought that I have never down to either a car graphic loud exhaust or a euro pipe exhaust. So I decided to post a pool with the choices of cartographic, euro pipe, leave it stock, or something else. What do you golfing?

After listening endlessly to sound clips and wanting to stay catted, I went with the AWE 3" exhaust. I just ordered it and delivery is a few weeks out.

I have AWE 3” and could not be happier. Top notch quality, top notch sound. Also gives you optionality should you want to go catless at any point or use stock tips.

Mine came with a full Fabspeed system... it is fine but I think I would do the sharkwerks system....

but it while you are deciding... go and add the DSC suspension module.... 5 min DIY. Install and all the difference in the world...same with a COBB.

I currently have a BBI with high flow cats and love it. Prior to that I had the FVD and liked it as well. Sounds much deeper than stock with some added power. The nice thing about it was, I got to keep my oem cats and tips.

I still have my fvd exhaust and will likely put it up for sale in a couple of weeks if interested.

Great feedback everyone. Looking forward to hearing more. What do you like/don’t like etc? Is there drone? Are you running stock or modded ecu?

congrats on the new ride! Great reaponses, there are so many great options for the 997TT. If you have a chance take a look at Kline exhausts. They have a few different combos for the 997TT and can fine tune the sound profile from sporty to medium to full blown aggressive. With careful combinations of pipe diameter, cats, mufflers, x pipes etc we can minimize drone and keep the exhaust tame and FREE a flowing! Depending on what you are looking for we can pretty much make a perfect set up. I can also set you up with some custom tuning and supporting mods as well as answer any of your questions. Please feel free to contact me, Iíd love to discuss and help you out.

I will definitely look into that. I would ideally like to hear the exhausts in person.

OP, keep in mind too that as you get recommendations or listen to sound clips, make sure they are for the 997.2 as the 9A1 sounds notably different than the Mezger. In other words, exhaust A may sound great with the Mezger but meh with the 9A1, or vice versa.

Feel free to shoot me a message with your location and Iíll go through my contacts and network to see whoís in your area with which exhaust so you can potentially listen to a couple first hand. Iíll also send you some links to setups Iíve worked with. As far as 997.2 the last car I had at the shop had a BBI set up on it as well as bigger turbos and it sounded badass.

Speedtech is pretty damn nice, sounds great and looks great! I'm always being asked about it.

On my last 997.2 turbo I had a 3Ē catless speedtech and loved it!

my current car came with a full (headers) catless IPE system.

For daily driving the valves are really, really nice to have.

Id pick up the used unit on 6 speed if I were you.
