BB Exhaust

Yes -- and agree, B&B muffler looks and sounds great.
It was on the 02 S when we bought it last year - but helped decide on the purchase. Like everyone says - "it has resonance" between 2-3K RPM - but we like that. Just got a complement at the PCA autocross from the club President on both the look and the sound, and he has a bunch of Porsches

If you cruise above 3K RPM it is comfortable for long distance touring - 5+ hours.

We may be adding headers sometime this next year and will consider B&B for that too.

Good luck,

Ed

sboxin,

Thanks for the reply. Excuse my ignorance, but could you elaborate a little regarding resonance ?

Thanks,

Nick

I have the B and B also. The resonance can be a little bassy or drone on with the windows up and top up. Otherwise, the exhaust compliments the stock sound of the Porsche and is very likeable. It looks great except that the tips get a little black from time to time and require some elbo grease to clean. All in all, worth every penny. Well made and sounds great when you open her up!

Best of luck!
