I always loved the look of the tailpipes of the PSE, but not really a fan of the side pipes because it looked to me almost as if the muffler was falling off the car, so I bought a Dansk exhaust, which clones the look of the PSE tailpipes:

I would have to agree with dj....but I'm sure the exhaust notes must be really nice.

My PSE didn't have any vacuum actuators, it just arrived with the valves held open. That Dansk that is Boxstaboy has is the one I am putting on next. I really like the rear diffuser look and it looks like the Dansk is the way to go.

If you are going to keep the valves open all the time, why not consider this alternative? This is a simple modification that can be made by a competent welder, produces the same throaty exhaust sound and costs minimal dollars. The real benefit is that the bypass pipes are hidden behind the rear valance. I'm running this along with Fabspeed cat bypass pipes and the sound is wonderful.

I think those who suggested I paint the bumperettes as a solution are on to something. I photoshopped the pipes onto Boxtaboy's car. It looks good.

those little extra holes on the tips look really stupid. makes it look like a riced out corolla. seriously poor design decision. almost bad enough to overlook the rediculously horrible side pipe things. i always thought that was some cheezy aftermarket part. guess it's a cheezy factory part.

To each his own, I quite like mine and it was an option I hunted for when I bought my 02 S.

Now please pass me a hunk of Havarti.

I did not hunt for the option, but I quite like it. I like looks and sound. Now I just need to get a set of headers...
