Does anyone recognize this UK exhaust system?

Link: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STAINLESS-STEEL-EXHAUST-MANIFOLD-DOWNPIPE-DECAT-PORSCHE-BOXSTER-986-2-5-2-7-3-2-/150812658159#shpCntId

Looks quite nice for the money, but this particular vendor does not ship to the States. Trying to explore options for US delivery.

Might any of our Brit Brothers recognize this, or maybe have one fitted?

Thanks - DM

Facebook Boxster owners page has a lot of members from the UK. Might try asking there.

I'm not so sure about that. I've been looking around or this sort of system for over a year, and have never seen anything like it available here in the States.

But still, perhaps I have just missed it. Do you know of a link to a US source?

Thanks - DM

Those exhaust headers look terrible. You shouldn't have a straight pipe going into another straight pipe at right angles, That causes shock waves to travel all over the place. The pipes from the cylinder heads to the exhaust pipes are of different length on the two sides, also a bad design. Compare with the FabSpeed headers that have all pipes of the same length and leading straight into the exhaust pipe.

I have never seen this system before and I look at exhausts A lot. The headers look almost like the factory ones on the 97-99 2.5 cars. The only thing good I can say about this system is the pipes are very shiny.

Looks like TopGear?

I looked at their 200 cell headers.

Hi Dave,

I don't know the brand name, but I have had a good experience with this system:

Porsche 986 Boxster Performance Exhaust and Headers

Good luck!
