Hi,

I had the mod done at H&S about a year ago on my 997 C2S. can't remember how much. whatever is quoted on the website i guess.

i'd say the sound was ok. not fantastic. i'd prefer it louder. I think I had the 1.5" pipe. the problem is the 997 is so well sound proofed. going for a larger pipe may have satisfied my requirement for more noise in the cabin, but may have been a bit too anti-social outside the car.

at a recent meet i was told my car had more of an aircooled sound. it was definately different to the sound of the 997 with the factory PSE.

in hindsight i think i would rather have put the money towards the cost of a PSE retrofit. especially as it was £1300 at that time rather than the more ridiculous £2000 it is now. you can sometimes find second hand PSE units for £1600.

all that said, the service at H&S was great. I didn't complain about the sound after the mod was done, so can't say if they would have done anything to help.

Thanks gadgetJunky72,

You haven't got a video clip or sound clip have you by any chance? Or if you fancy taking one Razz cannot find one anywhere on here!!

Really want to hear what it sounds like on a 997 S during a normal drive by and at full throttle etc.

Cheers

Thanks for the link GT4 Smile

£250 sound very reasonable to me, did you take off the mufflers yourself or did you just hand them the car and come back later?

Antonio, how much did it cost you, if you dont mind me asking.

Thanks


Nope, that's them taking them off.

I have a pair of rear boxes for sale, already modified, if you are interested. You would just need to swap them over. Simples

Thanks guys, I think i'll do the same as you GT4 (fry up around the corner)

Oli, Thanks anyway, but my exhaust is in excellent condition so keen to keep it.

otp, are you saying the whole thing only cost you £100 or the taking them off yourself cost £100? If the later then how much did it cost as a whole?

Cheers

I'm not asking for yours in return, I'm selling mine, as I still have my originals. I'm selling my car. Let me know

Oli

I got a 1.5" hack done at Infinity Exhausts 5 mins off M4 in Wiltshire for £120. Took them about 2 hours.

Hi the mod cost£100 I removed them myself for free easy job. The only extra was for 2 new clamps/sleeves from porsche £15 each the originals nuts rot away so just cut them off with a grinder.

Hope that answers the question
I think the cost is £250 if they remove them check heir website real friendly guys

Cheers guys,

I emailed H&S (Hayward & Scott) last week, and have still not heard a thing back! Not even an auto message to say they got my mail and will get back to me..

I have to say their website is pretty poor too! Without a number to call or even a proper address would you believe it!?

Martin.

Having read most threads on this mod I am now really tempted to get it done - looking for someone to do it in midlands if possible - anyone know of a supplier?

Cheers Rich

Fitted my newly hacked boxes yesterday. Went for the 1.5 inch

So far not as loud as I expected in car (though apparently its very fruity outside)

Which is probably a good thing as the induction is next

Much growlier when on the throttle but you wouldn't know it had been done when cruising

Which means it should pass the swimbo test as well
