These mufflers fit :
> All the 997 3.6L and 3.8L
This exhaust is our sport version for the 997 (1st generation). It gives 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, without being too loud.
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. You will therefore have a greater sound from a 3.6L than from 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 super sound, "Ultima Recital" version - (Reference : SCA 997 3 2 +) Best Seller
> 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. If the exhaust fitting is insufficiently or overly tightened you could end up with an air leak, which would ruin the sound of your exhaust. Remember that the bolts must always be tightened progressively across the entire set of bolts.
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.
