The one thing I would keep in mind is that the tips on the facelift mufflers are removable, whereas the tips on the pre facelift cars (if I'm not mistaken) are welded on. So if you were to buy a...

I never said it it was a good match, I just said it's the closest out of the box product if you're looking for an exposed linkage like the spyker or pagani. What else can you buy for our cars that is...

Hmm, very interesting. Perhaps my rule isn't as applicable for the air cooled era. I've only ever owned wheels from 986/996 and newer, so my knowledge is limited to the modern era (I just assumed the...

Width and offset stamped near the valve stem (like these ones) = real

No width or offset stamped near the valve stem = replica

Easiest way to tell, for future reference! :)

The 2.7 and 3.2 sound more or less the same. With just the cat bypass the car is a slight bit louder with more rasp.

I can't speak to how the ebay mufflers sound on their own (I've only used one in conjunction with the aforementioned bypass pipes) but on a scale of 1 (all stock) to 10 (bypass pipes plus china...

I tried that same exhaust setup. It was LOUD. Don't get me wrong, it sounded crazy at high rpms, but it droned quite a bit while cruising, which kind of ruined it for me. Some people on here have...

Should be just as easy. You'll notice when you take the stock midpipes off they have brackets in the same place (extra support because the cats are pretty heavy). Bypass pipes are pretty light so...

Weird, I just checked Top Speed's site and they don't have any for sale. Circuit Werks only has them for the 2.5, and they are $128, which makes sense. The prices and lack of availability must be due...

Odd...I recall paying $150 for mine, but that was about 5 years ago now. Bought them from Top Speed (an ebay brand). No idea why they would be so pricey now as they really have no reason to be.

Thanks for the pic and glad to hear you had a positive experience with the ebay version. Seems to be a crapshoot as to whether or not you have to do anything to make it work!

A 986 S, I have a new Raceseng 987/997 adapter if you want to play around with it. Just pay me shipping. It didn't quite fit the 986/996 shift console I tried it on. This is due the fact they...

I tried one maybe 4 or 5 years ago. It was slightly thicker than the OEM filter and there was no way it was going to slide into the airbox. Matter of fact I ended up breaking the tray the filter sits...

Probably the cheapest and easiest way to get a few hp that I'm aware of is to get some secondary cat bypass pipes. Adds around 5-10hp and I got mine for around $150. The cheap ebay ones are fine.
