Dude, it won't look any different. It will use my stock chrome "S" tip. But the sound should.

I called every Porsche dealership in the Chicago area...about 5. And prices were all over the board. Some places had the nuts to tell me 10 hours at over $130/hour!

Labor will be about $500.

Dr., define easy?

It will take at least 3 hours. And my car will be the first one they have ever done. So it may be closer to 4 hours. The installation directions for the PSE are 17 pages long!

Luckily I have Sport Chrono, or else it would take another 1-2 hours to install wiring to a switch in the center dash area. They will tie into the Sport Chrono function through the DME.

Are you replacing the headers too? Maybe I misunderstood, sorry. The exhaust only is a fairly simple plug & play. The muffler has splined clamps that some people cut off in frustration, I reused mine. It sounds like the muffler you picked has a more advanced set up as you mentioned a link to the sport chrono. In either case, enjoy the new note, if the finished product is anything like my sport muffler you will particularly enjoy top down, high RPM noises, the sound is fantastic.

Hey bmuss, where did you order your PSE?

Also, if you don't mind me asking how much was it?

Chills, I ordered it from Sunset Porsche (www.sunsetporsche.com).

Again, pricing was all over the board, ranging from $1,934-$2,640! Dealer cost is right at $1,435.

Plus, you got mail!

DJ, I like you man, I might even let you drive it! Let's work a trade. Will you take a picture of my car while I am driving around a cure at TOD? I want the car crisp, the wheels and background blurry! And a big grin on my face like this guy:

Thanks, Bill. You've got mail, now.


I think we all should get together and have DJ take pictures of each of us racing by in our Boxsters. Big grin and all.

What do you say, DJ?

Bill,

As I told you the other day.

Get your ears ready for a great day!

Think 60% of a Carrera GT!

And let us know...

Congratulations, now if I am not mistaking then this should not net you any power gains, correct? From what I understand I think this will make a great difference in sound quality though.
