Hi,
Does anyone know what kind of Muffler this is? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Mike

I look at exhausts on e-bay everyday and saw this one. It looks like homemade junk to me.

So what do you think of this one? I have just noticed this up on ebay by 3 or 4 different seller. Is this just some POC that is being thrown together in China? When I first saw it I thought that maybe it is just a couple of really cheap mufflers welded together to fit the Boxster? My biggest fear would be putting this on only to find start it and have it sound like a hopped up Subaru or Honda.

Anyone own one of these or know anyone who has purchased one? I'm watching eBay all the time too like ohioboxster but haven't seen anything worthwhile come up exhaust wise.

If you might be interested I just posted my used GHL up on the classifieds. Had great sound but a little much for my passengers. I switched to the Porsche Sports Exhaust.

Take care,
Mike

Just by the looks of that thing I would be scared. It seriously looks like a chop job someone did in their garage as mentioned earlier. I would stick with exhausts from companies like Dansk, GHL, B&B, Borla ect ect. If the seller is reputable why doesn't he tell you???

Actually, I have been looking at that one on E-bay. The seller has good feedback over 4k positive. I would take a chance on it, seems like everybody is happy with his stuff.
