These mufflers fit the:
> 986 2.5L, 2.7L and 3.2 L
We have developed a number of prototypes for this car over the years. The major difficulty lies in the fact that the catalysers have a right angle that is particularly detrimental to the flow of the exhaust gases. To make matters worse, at the catalyser exit, the gases have to make a 180° turn which slows them down even further.
It is impossible to create a quality sound without a sufficient gas velocity. Apart from the 986 and the 2nd generation 997, few other cars in the Porsche range have this problem (except for the turbos, but that's for a different reason). This explains why there is not much on offer for these cars.
Our exhaust on the other hand, accelerates the gas flow.
We have 2 versions, the first is the Racing with a really furious sound, then there's the second, Sport, which is a little calmer.
Please note: the Boxster on the videos is equipped with the 200 cell cats and the Racing version of the muffler.
Our thanks to Alexandre R. whose kindness and patience allowed us to come up with the best solution for this complex car.
Our range also includes the following mufflers :
> SCART with valves (switch controlled) - (Reference : SCA 986 3 2 VI)
> SCART with valves (remote controlled) - (Reference : SCA 986 3 2 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 catalysers.
On average they take about 3 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.
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. We recommend using the copper grease on the bolt threads, the clamps and the sleeves when fitting the exhaust.
