Will, some brasso will be in order. You may need to get the other mount for it (that fist the S) to attach it to the transmission. I was using my oroginal bracket and just drilled new holes till I got the correct mount. It will fit without too much difficulty.

At least yours has the vacuum attachments which is more than mine had. However, it is easier to just leave it on all the time.

the newer mufflers are not compatible with the bracket on your car that holds the muffler to your transmission. you will need the updated bracket. it WILL fit your car. the part number is 996.111.226.02 and the list price is $42.76. when you do the job, bring some PB blaster to help you separate the old muffler.

here is a picture of the bracket:

GREAT!!! thanx. i noticed on the vacuum THING (proper name escapes me ..accuator?) the bolts have rusted, will it still work when plumbed in or will the angle of it lose pressure? (it's on a tilt) do these only work on vacuum pressure or can this work with a switch? i don't really know much about the in's and outs of PSE

You also need 3 bolts to mount the bracket. 6 are shown in the pic because when you buy the adapter as a kit there are 3 bolts for a manual transmission and 3 shorter bolts for a tiptronic.

The vacuum things are vacuum operated bypass valves. I would just leave it as it is and put it in. It will be in the bypass/loud mode all the time. That exhaust is not really loud.

i didn't need extra bolts when i did mine. the bolts that hold your 2.5L bracket to the transmission are the same part number as the ones that hold the 2.7L bracket to the transmission.

that part is already on your car; you can just re-use it.
