Thanks. Just making sure.The bypass is the first pic, what I have. The second pic is a muffler.
The three top-end systems are Akra, Dundon, and JCR. Akra is the best made and the only maker that supplies Porsche itself. A friend of mind tried ordering from JCR but they sat on his money for months and were unresponsive until he finally forced them to refund. He wound up going with Akra. Dundon was super popular in the beginning but seems to have fallen-off in popularity. Most people who don’t pick the Akra are making the decision based on price.
I don’t believe any of their advertised power gains. AP says you can MAYBE eke out another 5-10 HP with exhaust mods, but that’s it. The only certain benefits are cutting weight and better sound.
And almost forgot! AP himself recommended the Akra, though in his opinion the best configuration is pairing the side deletes with the center muffler.
If I went with Dundon, I’d probably insist on doing an independent dyno test. Because if the only reason to go with them is the power gain, then I’d better get it. That said, I wouldn’t just dismiss the dyno charts they already have.
a lot of people love JCR because it makes the Porsche sound like an Italian V8. But if I wanted a car that sounded like that, I’d get an Italian V8. I want it to still sound like a Porsche
