Boxster 986 sporty sound!

Hello you all,

Recently I changed my exhaust for a original modded


Before :


Sound? Its loud but definitely not to loud, between 2500 and 300 RPM you have to be careful with the pedal. If not a lot of dark noise is troubling your ears. :roll:

De exhaust is not to difficult to exchange but take your time for this operation!
It took me 4 hours ( included a test drive :lol: )

Here some results: http://youtu.be/ES4EDAjaQQg

How is it modded? Did you do it yourself?

I see where you cut the can open so I'm assuming you removed some internal baffles ? Any pictures of the inside of the muffler and the changes you made ?

Sounds like you are getting the dreaded muffler drone that many suffer from.

My mufflers (TopSpeed Exhaust and 2nd cat delete pipe) had that same 2,500-3,000 drone until I removed the 2nd Catalytic converter just before the muffler.

The droning was gone immediately and the exhaust sounds incredible now.

Now let's talk about that sweet spoiler decal.
Where can I get one?

It sounds really nice!
Did you modified the muffler yourself ?
