Sport cats or Cat delete

Hi,

Anyone put on sport cats or gone with cat delete for their pano?

Considering the FVD sport cats and resonator delete, but dang it's pricey.

Would like a little better sound and a few more ponies would be nice (to see if I can take it over 600)

i was looking at the fabspeed setup. did you ever get anything for the exhaust? was thinking of leaving the stock mufflers but changing up to them.

I haven’t yet but I will, just waiting for exchange to go down. I have sport exhaust so I won’t change out the mufflers. Debating cat delete as sport cats are over twice as much, and probably a resonator delete too.

I have the tune so that’s no problem. I will post when I get when I decide

Going with Cat deletes (mainly due to price). They are on order and FVD has already supplied me with the flash upgrade. I will test them first for sound/drone/performance then decide if I want to do a resonator delete as well.

Keeping the PSE on though, canít wait!

Just got the PTT back, apparently the bolts at the turbos were brutal so they let them sit in penetrating oil overnight.

I did the flash and brought her home, all I can is WOW! the car sounds unreal, best Panamera I've ever heard. Tried both PSE on and off and what a great combo!

Car sounds like a powerfull V8 now, and it will only get better once the throttle learns it's cycles and the "cats" burn in a little.

I have a video from before so I will take one when I get a helper to show/hear the difference.

I'm really glad I didn't do the reasonator delete as it would have been too loud.

Stay tuned, and THANKS! FVD

Yes, my tech even asked if they have cats, I explained itís to ďpassĒ visual inspection.

I ordered mine with all the mounting hardware as well as I knew exhaust would be a pain.

The strange thing on the factory ones is they have two bungs, one before the cat and one that looks like itís in the middle of the cat.
