New exhaust/New Site sponsor?

I saw this sponsor on this site, I think, but I didnt see an exhaust for the 986. Then I went on EBAY, and found this. Anyone try it yet? Looks cool, sounds cool.

We've all seen that one before. Not worth it. 2 juice cans welded together. Not impressed with the sounds either.

Your right, it looks like your run of the mill glass-pack exhaust. I wish there was a sound bite of that exhaust on a non-S boxster.

Edit: there is A/V on the ebay auction of the exhaust on a non-s boxster, I dont have speakers at work, can anyone tell me what it sounds like?

I heard the clip, and thought it sounded great. How bad can they be, they make exhausts for ferraris also.

I still think it sounds like crap. I keep telling everyone the only way your going to get that deep growling sound is to remove the 2nd set of cats on the down pipe of your boxster. Have you ever heard the Boxster with no exhaust? It's very loud. Now just imagine it with only 1 set of cats instead of 2 sets. EPIQ sells the bipass pipes. Then you can add whatever kind of mufler/exhaust you want and its still going to sound good because of the removal of the 2nd set of cats. Suposed to be emitions legal and it's a bolt-on job so you can reverse it if you don't pass your emitions.

I think the problem is that they are just not really designed that well. If you look closely at the pictures, you'll notice that:

1) The tips of the muffler are too short, and don't reach out to the end of the underside of the rear bumper.

and

2) They're missing a mounting point that the factory exhaust has which has a rod from the muffler that hangs onto the cat, in addition to the piping that attaches to it.
