Product Description

Note: This product also includes two new OEM exhaust gaskets and 6x replacement exhaust bolts to be used optionally if you would like to replace the old exhaust studs on the flanges.

The new Shark Werks 997.2 muffler bypass system has been methodically designed, tested and proven on our own 2009 997.2 S PDK car during the first few months of ownership. Whilst we were excited to own and drive the new generation of 997, one of the areas we felt needed more attention was the exhaust note. In stock form the sound was extremely quiet inside and out. The goal with our center exhaust replacement was to achieve a PSE-like sporty Porsche sound that we all know and love and yet retain factory fitment and be 50-state emissions legal.

** This system will only fit 2009 / 2010 / 2011 / 2012 Carrera / Carrera S models. It is also compatible with the PSE (Porsche Sport Exhaust) equipped cars and continues to work with the sport button

 Designed in-house and manufactured in Northern California, the muffler bypass utilizes high-grade 18 gauge T304 tungsten inert gas welded stainless steel. The center replacement improves upon the factory unit by eliminating the sharp and tight left/right u-bends in favor of a straighter flow for a real world 12HP and 14TQ gain (see dyno plot above). Retaining the side mufflers maintains an appropriate sound level for daily driving (especially in a PDK car which is subject to droning). There is no additional drone or resonance. Should you ever want an even more aggressive sound you can also combine our bypass with aftermarket mufflers designed for the factory center section (e.g. Cargraphic).

Your products are truly outstanding. The workmanship, support, etc. Could not be happier with my x-pipe.

Keep up the great work.

Bob, Vermont (customer, 2011 C2S 6MT)

I have PSE and Sharkerks and it is KILLER!

Tim K, NC (customer)

I have Sharkwerks center x-pipes and PSE on open most of the time. The sound is great and reminds me more of the air cooled sound than the water-cooled sound. Love my set-up!

Terry, Taiwan (customer)

Can you see the smile on my face, ear-to-ear grin?!! Just drove home after having the Shark Werks center muffler bypass installed. It RIPS!!

The GTS sounds like a sports car now. A little more rumble at normal throttle and without PSE. Screams with the PSE and on the loud pedal. I can see my mpg's dropping just so I can listen to this concert.

Being new to the 997GTS, many here have advised me to have this installed. Glad I did it. If you've been thinking of it, DO IT. DO NOT DELAY!

Joe R, Bay Area, CA (customer, 2012 GTS w/ PSE)

It's crazy how many people have commented on how "sporty" my car sounds with the PSE + Sharkwerks bypass. It adds so much to the experience, do not hesitate to do it!

Jdogg2000, Rennlist (customer)

Big thumbs up to the Sharkwerks Sports Exhaust for the 997.2
Have to say not only does it sound better, but I can feel a nice bump in performance. Really really worth the money.

Upscale Audio, CA (customer)

Only smiles from this Sharkwerks customer. No droning, very nice tone on my 997.2 C4S.

Ryan H, Oregon (customer)

I have had my SW bypass pipes for 2.5 years in conjunction with my PSE. No droning, no issues. Great set up.
