These mufflers fit the:
> 997 3.6L and 3.8L
This is our Best Seller for the 997. Since it was created in 2006, we have sold over 700 pairs. The "Ultima Recital" has 3 principle characteristics:
> A deep and pronounced sound when you start up
> A discreet sound at cruising speed
> A very playful sound when accelerating
Compared with the Classic SCART version, the Ultima has a fixed by-pass which under high pressure blocks the chicane sending the gases directly out of the car.
The choice of silencer should take into account the cylinder capacity of the car and the type of gearbox it has. Paradoxically, the greater the cylinder capacity of the car, the lower the sound level. Which means that a less powerful 3.6L will have a greater sound than a 3.8L.
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 classic sport version - (Reference : SCA 997 3 2)
> A sport version with valves - (Reference : SCA 997 3 2 VI or VT)
Our exhausts all fit onto the original interfaces. By this we mean their entry, their outlet and their size are the same as those of the original part.
This 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 may take longer if the reverse is true. There is no need to remove the rear bumper, you simply need to remove the lower bolts behind the wheels. If the sleeves on the catalytic converter end and the clamps on the tail-pipe end are original parts, we would recommend that you replace them.
You will need a car hoist for the job. Without one you will need to remove the rear bumper and the process will take twice as long.
When tightening the 4 bolts on the sleeves, be sure to respect the recommended tightening torque of 46Nm and this progressively across the entire set of bolts. If the exhaust fitting is insufficiently or overly tightened you could end up with 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. The sleeves for fitting the cats to the mufflers are not included. We would recommend that you use sleeves designed for the 996 as they are the most resistant. We also recommend that you use the copper grease on the thread of the bolts and on the clamps when fitting.
