I would check with Pedro on ppbb.com He makes his own custom freelow mufflers. Good luck!

Veneer calipers? Weird, mine are made of solid metal!

Be careful with custom exhaust work. I put a lot of time and effort into making something custom and then discovered that the length of pipe that makes up a Boxster exhaust forms a really loud resonance around 2800 RPM. Unless you add about three feet of pipe to each side of the exhaust (or make a chambered muffler that does the same thing) it's going to resonate like a mofo.

I have a really nice custom exhaust ... hanging in my buddy's garage because of this.



Not trying to discourage anyone, just trying to save y'all some money

Haha, ya, Im done. That was the bypass valves I did. Other than moving the wires once they are fine. Funny you should mention, I had a dream last night and I was in some sort of weird thing but in the end I got in my boxster with the exhaust loud and went flying down the road. I guess thats as close as im gonna get for the next week because im taking my moms cayenne back to KC.
