Does anyone know if the PSE gets louder as more miles are build up on the system or does it get less loud. I have the PSE on my Targa and have checked that it is the correct one for the 02's and up model years and it seems to be not as loud under full throttle as when it was new some 60k miles ago. Anyone else feel their PSE has became less loud as more miles have been driven? Are there any headers out there that would make it louder while keeping the PSE exhaust note?

I think mine deepened a little after it was broken in - but htat was only about 500 miles.

I have 60,000 miles on it, it is on a 2002 996 Targa and it seems not to be as loud as when I first got it. Do you think I should purchase a new one? I also heard that the welds break inside and you get rattling noises. I havent got any noises, but can tell that it has gotten less loud. Last, this may be a dumb question, how can i make sure the exhause is on loud all the time?

Not dumb at all :D

Here is a link from Loren's DIY section. I performed the mod on my 996 back in late 03 when I first had it delivered new from the dealer and it worked fine - Thanks to Loren.... :thankyou:

PSE Speed Over-ride Hack - DIY

Note that the mod basically disables the speed sensor signal and will also affect (disables) the auto locking function in your car if it is fitted with that option (Car locks engage after a certain speed automatically).

You may wish to also read this recent thread where I found an issue with my PSE which was fine at WOT but would go quiet when the engine bay was getting hot - Looks like the solenoid that controls the vacuum (on/off) to the PSE muffler valves is the culprit.

Do you have the switch on your dash to manually control the PSE??

If anything - the PSE should get louder with age as opposed to quieter - usually mufflers get louder because the insulation material inside will degrade slowly over time. The only way for it to become quieter is if the vacuum operated valves were being enabled somehow - similar to what I had recently experienced where my solenoid was allowing the valves to operate slightly.
