With the centre silencer in place, you can’t hear the car sing properly. I would have started with the bypass.

Will it be overkill having both mods?

I have seen some of the videos when the car is stationary being revved and yes it sounds good. I was wondering what is sounds like doing 70 on a motorway if the deeper note would be too loud and annoying. At least with PSE you can turn it off.

I’ve never switched off PSE once on the move. I. Do Euro trips and it’s not wearing.

I went to the TG site using the link in the OP, temporarily added the bypass to my cart, and selected California as the shipping destination. It came back with £70 for shipping.

You could replicate those steps to calculate shipping to NZ.

Karl.


Yup, I know that, what I wanted to get to is the exact total including the discount as part of the group buy. Is it £266.67 (excl. VAT) minus the 20% group buy deal? Which should be the case.

Taking 20% off the VAT included price and then removing the VAT will give the same figure.

In the first post, TG said “price of £256 including VAT and shipping”.

Presumably that’s with their ‘free’ shipping option in the UK.

So I took the £256, removed the VAT (by dividing by 1.2), and added the international shipping cost to my location to generate my estimate. That should be similar/same as to what TG will send out in PM later this week.

Count me in as a serious buyer for the whole cat back system - main silencers and the cross over delete for the secondary, which really are a complete waste on every car that I ever owned.

Hi all,

Sorry if the math is somewhat confusing. Suffice to say, VAT is not charged by our site unless it needs to be. The price given of £256 including VAT and shipping is to UK. Individual international buyers exact price will vary but without VAT being charged it should be comparable to UK or only a bit more expensive.

Have just sent 9/20 coupon codes out including a couple of requests via e-mail. So, still 11 people left to benefit from this group buy if they want in.

Coming back to individuals ref questions as soon as I can, please bear with me. I've answered most within the PM's.

Thanks for this, have my code. Just want to make sure it fits 997.2 with PSE which someone else has asked. If you haven't already could you please post the answer to this question?

Have had confirmation from my fabricator out at SEMA that this will fit to PSE.

Afternoon all thumbsup,
...
Product- Link


One quick clarifying question. The product description says...

The X-Pipe design of the silencer bypass optimizes flows and boosts power gains as well as providing a higher pitched racing sound. This lightweight silencer bypass saves weight on your vehicle as well as increasing the power delivery.

Now it’s not the reason I’m buying, but I’m curious as to the data backing the claimed increase in power (e.g. before/after dyno charts)? And how much of a bump you saw?

Thanks.

Karl.

Hi Topgear, can you check your PM please? My quote came to 400 quid instead of a lower one of 360-ish.
