These mufflers fits the:
> 996 3,4L and 3,6L including the GT3
This is our Sport version for the 996. It creates a sound that is somewhere between the original exhaust and our "Ultima Recital" version and has the following features:
> A good holler when you start up
> A discreet sound at cruising speed
> A sporty sound when accelerating
These mufflers were designed to be fitted along with the 200 cell sport catalytic converters.
Your choice of muffler should take into account the cylinder capacity of the car and its gearbox.
As a general rule, the greater the cylinder capacity of the car, the lower the sound level. You will therefore have a greater sound from a 3.4L than from a 3.6L.
The type of gearbox is even more discriminating. Aside from the fact that the engine system settings are different for the Tiptronic and manual gearboxes, the Tiptronic runs at a lower engine speed.
Our range also includes the following mufflers:
> A super sound version "Ultima Recital" - (Reference : SCA 996 3 2 +) Best Seller
> A sport version with valves - (Reference : SCA 996 3 2 VI or VT)
Our exhausts all fit onto the original interfaces. By this we mean their entry, their outlet and their size conform to the original.
The muffler fits directly after the cats.
On average it takes about 2 hours to fit, including the time it takes to remove the original exhaust. It will be faster if the exhaust you're removing is in good condition, just as it could take longer if the reverse is true. There is no need to remove the rear bumper, simply remove the bottom screws just behind the wheels. If you still have the original sleeves leading to the cats and the original clamps connecting the tail-pipes, it would be a good idea to change them.
You will need a car hoist for the job. Without one you will need to remove the rear bumper and the process with take twice as long.
The 4 bolts of the sleeves must always be tightened at 46N and this progressively across the entire set of bolts. An exhaust which is overly or insufficiently tightened may result in an air leak, which would ruin the sound of the exhaust.
To ensure that our exhausts are fitted under the best conditions, a mounting kit containing: stainless steel bolts, stainless steel lock nuts and high temperature copper grease, is included with your exhaust. (Excludes sleeves for fitting to the cats and the clamps for the tail pipes.) We recommend that you grease the thread of the bolts, and the inside of the sleeves and the clamps when fitting.
