Any sound files?

I would be interested in how this set up sounds, do you have any sound files? I went out to Magnaflows website and they do not even have Porsche listed. Is Magnaflow approved to be used on Porsche like Fabspeed or GHL? Thanks.

hi briansboxster, i dont know if magnaflow is approved by porsche ,and sorry i dont have any sound files of the exhuast ..i have used there stuff in most of my other cars e.g. mercedes and fords...i love there sound and price...and straight through stainless steel exhuast looks pretty good....i don't have had any complaints in this car or any of my others with them.....and the muffler guy is really good so that also helps....

The reason

The reason I asked if it had been approved by Porsche is due to some aftermarket exhaust systems that take horsepower away from the car. The porsche works on back pressure and some aftermarket exhaust systems take away pressure thus loosing some performance? Did you check this out before you made this mod?

do you, or anyone else, know where I can get my GHL exhaust installed? I just got it a few days ago, but unsure where to take it yet. I don't want to go to any random muffler shops. Any recommendation not too far from 60/57 fwy?

Maybe I can get it installed on Friday and bring the car on Sat morning

GOTO: www.magnaflow.com

click on Proffesional Installers or Dealer Locator. You should be able to find a reputable shop there.

Any noticeable gains in performance with the new muffler at all?

Question about GHL & BB

Hey Yellowbox,

I have been thinking about getting the GHL exhaust and have heard great reviews. Is there a major difference with or without the B&B headers. I was told by a perfomance shop that there is only a 4hp gain with the headers and is it workth the $$? How is the resonance with the GHL exhaust. I have been told that the exhaust has set off alarms on vehicles just driving by them. I have heard some sound files on the GHL and they rock! I have looked at several different setups and GHL thus far has been rated the most radical. I am interested to see how Magnaflow compairs. If you hear his or compair let me know the difference. Thanks.

Post sounds and performance.

sounds[/B] the ghl exhaust and b&b headers combined have a low throaty sound in a loud fashion??. even during loud sound you can clearly hear the distinctive boxster engine sound while reving and cruising upto ~2600rpm after exhaust creates more great sound and decreases at ~2800rpm. while in idle or reving car sounds like 996 twin turbo!! or cruising at low rpm through residential streets. to sum it up you can control the sound with a push of the pedal and shift of the gear. setting off alarms i have not noticed. but the neigbors love it. ghl has great looks and saves weight its bout 40lbs lighter than stock.
performance i have not dyno tested car but noticed an (very needed) increase in throttle responce at all levels of rpm. lauch or on the run. feels more swift in traffic.
installation i would recommend speed gallery in studio city ca. w/sam tell him jr sent ya. (but wait) when i jacked the car up i noticed how easy it can be to install ghl and headers. yes the headers are straight "bolt on " also ghl
all you need is basic hand tools and liquid wrench. jack the car up and youll see.
overall love the sound of ghl and headers youll get noticed and increase in power and more looks. if you install it yourself save 500.00 in labor (100.00 for ghl)(400.00 for headers) and it is very worth it goes great with after market wheels and other modifications. ps we should get together for newport show saturday show on sept 17 @0600. this will give time to request permission from boss (home and work).

two left feet for automotive upgrades.

two left feet for automotive upgrades?..then your like me, earlier i posted take your ghl to speed gallery (100.00) for installation or do it your self but i think your local random muffler shop can istall for about 50.00 if that. but i would stay and watch them like a hawk. 100.00 at the speed gallery buys you peace of mind. see sam tell him jr sent ya.

I read your post about the magna flow mufflers and decided to get it done to my Boxster. My local exhaust shop only charged $282 for parts and labor. I am supposed to get it done this afternoon. I will try and post a sound clip as well.

Yes, resonance is quite loud, but I like it. I set off my first car alarm in the parking garage today, so,

I see more people turn their heads when I drive by, it used to be the color of my car, now I think is the sound
