Headers + cats 200cc

3 700,00 $ ref. : SCA 997-2 1 2 stock :

These headers / 200 cell sport cats fit:

> All the 997 2nd generation including the GTS

A catalytic converter works on the principle of creating sufficient heat within the exhaust for it to work like an oven.  This sets the catalysers to work to "clean" the exhaust gases before releasing them into the environment. Since the 1st generation 987 and this 2nd generation 997, the cats have moved further up the exhaust line to have more heat. The headers and cats come in one piece per bank of 3 cylinders. So one pair per car. Originally on the 2nd generation 997 there were 2 cats on each side.  Our version improves both the flow through the headers, and the performance of the cats. One of the results of this is an improvement in the sound.  Of all the cars in the history of Porsche, this one makes the least sound, which is a shame as the sound it makes is fabulous. If you fit these headers/cats along with our system with valves, you will have a beautiful sound with the valves closed that will suit all driving situations. With the valves open, you will have a car with a sound verging on racing when you accelerate. This is the most beautiful of the air-cooled Porsche, but that's just my opinion!  Read on and you'll see what fellow Porschists, who have already taken the plunge, have to say about this exhaust.

Our range also includes:
> A standard 400 cell catalysed version - (Reference : SCA 997-2 1 1) to order

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. They can therefore be fitted in replacement of the original part without requiring any modification.

These cats fit under the car between the engine and the transverse muffler.  We recommend that you unplug the 2 Lambda probes before dismantling the cats, then remove them once the cats are no longer fitted to the car.

On average, it should take about 3 hours to fit them including the time taken to dismount 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.

You will need a car hoist for the job. It isn't easy to retrieve the Lambda probes so be prepared to buy new ones or have some already to hand.

 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: gaskets, stainless steel bolts, stainless steel lock nuts and high temperature copper grease, is included with your exhaust.

I had an X-pipe, connection box and a Sport air filter fitted last Friday (23rd) and the result is all that I'd hoped for.  I wanted to keep the original PSE but improve on it and get rid of the problem of it cutting out. And it makes the difference - I now have a Porsche.   If I hadn't had the PSE I wouldn't have thought twice about fitting a complete Scart line .... that'll be for next time! Christophe, who fitted the X and connected up the box, does a really professional job - you have nothing to fear either for your car or for its interior. He's a great guy too! Thanks. Cyrille will give you all the info you need by mail, as he did for me. If you're interested he'll give you a guided tour of the workshop too. They're a great team who love what they do and the end result is perfect. Thanks guys. Emmanuel.

Just to let you know how I got on since having a new voicebox fitted at the SCART workshop. Like many, I'm very disappointed by the Porsche PSE for the 997.2. I already knew about SCART exhausts (I had an Ultima Recital on a 3.6L 996) so naturally I turned to the SCART team for a SCART with valves. The contact was very friendly and then the guided tour of the workshop confirms that you're amongst professionals who are passionate about the work they do and doing it well. Being able to watch the exhaust being fitted with my own eyes with precious tips along the way was an additional bonus!!! And the result .... a massive grin all the way home !!!! It's a huge thrill, a gentle melody, round, more or less boisterous depending on whether the valves are open or closed. I took the option of keeping the original switch on the dashboard - brilliant. Just one last thing - accelerating out of the toll station, pdk mode, in manual, SCART valves open .... devilish !!!! THANK YOU to the whole SCART team - keep up the good work.

MKII 997 C4S - exhaust with valves + filter. The welcome and intervention by the team were impecable. The work to connect the valves to the original PSE switch was carried out with great care. It's a great piece of acoustic workmanship and beautifully made. The best of both worlds. Valves closed, the result is subtle with a slightly rounder sound than the original. Valves open at low revs it's a delight, put your foot down and it's bewitching, then when you go through a tunnel ... what can I say ... Wow!! I was worried about having an exhaust that was too noisy, but it isn't. This exhaust does what the original just doesn't do and it's very versatile depending on how and where you drive. Well done!!!

An exhaust with valves with a guttural sound in replacement for a PSE. The pleasure of driving has been multiplied several times thanks to its deep, round sound.  Nobody can be bothered by the sound when the valves are closed, and then when the valves are open the sound is exceptional. To any of you out there that are still hesitating, hesitate no longer!

Safely back home in Belgium.
What a sound! In manual the exhaust sings non-stop.
Beats the PSE hands down
