PSE without wiring


Recommended Posts

I just bought an 02 Carrera 4S with stock mufflers and was looking at the PSE for it. I was told by dealer rep that I can have them installed without wiring the bypass relay and they would just always be with sound "on". (which is what I want) Told it was $700 cheaper install also. Is this true? I take I would want the newer version of PSE with 3.6? Thanks for any advice

You don't need to have the electronics installed to have PSE. The electronics control the sound through a vacuum bypass valve and a momentary switch to activate/deactivate the PSE sound.

Without the electronic control, the PSE will be in bypass (on) all the time.

I installed the full PSE with electronics myself. My dealer quoted me $1100 for labor for a full installation, and $200 for just the mufflers.

The electronics come with it when you purchase new. You just don't need to install it. Heck you can even sell your electronics for a couple bucks on eBay to somebody who wants to do the hookup and bought theirs used--that's what I did.

FYI....my dealer wanted $800 for the full install and $100 for the cans alone. I decided to let the dealer do the cans for $100 and have my Saturday to myself. If they wanted $200 then I would have done it myself. Essentially 3 bolts on each side.

In comparing the pse with aftermarket like fabspeed, ghl, b&b: do these really make more hp as they all claim? I would like a little more hp but I don't want it too loud. Had fabspeed on previous car and they were a touch too loud Thanks for your help.

Hi Gang,

I'm new to the whole PSE thing and from what I've read, I would be plenty happy with PSE and no wiring. Seems that almost everyone leaves it in bypass all the time anyway.

If I were to go this route, do I need to do anything to the exhaust to "hold" it in bypass mode permanently?

Thanks in advance!

No, it defaults to valves open all the time.

I've got the PSE. One of my primary factors in selection was the ability to go "quiet" when I so desired.

I don't believe ANY of the louder exhausts add measurable HP by themselves. Maybe a few HP if coupled with new intake, etc.
