Out of interest, how do people rate the bypass alone ?

For a non-PSE car, is it worth doing centre-delete only ? Or combine with the 'gundo hack' which adds a bypass to the mufflers also ?

Any thoughts would be helpful. Definitely don't want to introduce drone, so would be good to hear some views.
Gundo hack on both mufflers with a 1.5inch pipe diameter and a H&S back box sounded like a chavved up Saxo. Just the back box sounded very good.
With or without PSE the centre silencer bypass pipe sounds a lot better on any 997.2. Heard a few with various mods to the large kidney silencers that sit behind the wheels and I've found them all to be too loud and not a nice note.

So... that exhaust set up looks right on the dot familiar and a straight copy of our set up all the way down to our unique clamp/hardware method vs what companies have copied before (using clamps at least those guys changed it a bit). So is this how it works Chris@ABP? You buy a few of ours and then send one to Milltek to just rip ours off completely and sell it for less? OK I see the business model...

Well if you want a knock-off albeit cheaper by all means go ahead. Just to let everyone know if you're looking for a Sharkwerks exhaust (albeit more expensive) then I guess you'll have to get it elsewhere or directly from us.

Phil Millington, seriously?

Sounds like sharkwerks isn't going to be supplying anymore exhausts to chris at abp because he took their product and gave it to milltek to copy, rebrand and flog as a cheaper option...at least that's how I understood it!

I have the Sharkwerk with PSE on a 997.2 C2S and can confirm that it's better with the PSE on or off. Given the choice I would rather have the Sharkwerk with no PSE than the PSE with no Sharkwerk. However it's still not in the same league as the 996 with PSE - but worth the cost for sure(even at todays FX rate)
