Exhaust

FYI - not mine but was just on pca site and there is a fabspeed race exhaust in Chicago I think for sale. Says 12 DE Events and a few thousand road miles. Those race exhausts are loud and aggressive but awesome. Says $999. For a 2.7 boxster in case anyone is looking.

Good question. Each has there own unique twist. I am really partial to my 951 S. just a total classic, quick as all get out, simple, etc. my air cooled cars were fun but slow but stopped traffic everywhere I went.

But I must say, this 996 is a freakin trip! I am not a track guy and to be honest don't see any difference in handling over the 986...but I still get cab top and now some back seats! The power is so much bigger and no matter what gear...including 6, it just pulls and pulls and pulls.

I loved both my Boxsters but didnt like not seeing the motor. On the 996, I am changing motor mounts tomorrow...will take a half hour to hour...easy!

I appreciate it, but I am about done! I am going to spend more time detailing engine bay with this big air box out of the way than anything! Where are you in N Florida?
