Custom lightweight 986 Boxster competition exhaust system

This is an exhaust system which was custom-made to fit a 2000-2004 986 Porsche Boxster S. It should also fit the earlier cars without any issue, but it will not fit the 987 (2005+) Boxster nor Cayman.

The exhaust uses 2" aluminized 16 gauge pipe and Magnaflow 642-14414 polished stainless mufflers. It has dual 3" polished stainless tips for a clean look. The entire exhaust is 12 lbs, significantly lighter than the stock system which weighs between 40 and 45lbs. This system was designed to be lightweight and have a good tone. The sound is very deep at low RPM and takes on a hard edge at higher RPM. The tone is very similar to the GHL and Borla systems, although it is not as loud as either one of them.

The welded joints were sprayed with a ceramic paint to prevent rusting. The exhaust mounts to the factory location at the rear of the transmission housing using factory hardware. The inlet pipes clamp to the stock catalytic converter exit pipes. It is very easy to install once the factory muffler is removed from the vehicle.

I don't have any sound clips or pictures on the car... sorry. It fits perfectly and has enough adjustment available to center the tips in the bumper cutout nicely. The 3" tips look awesome.

I now just remove the stock muffler and run turndowns for competition, so I don't use this anymore and it's just been sitting in a closet in my house. It's light, but bulky, so I'll have to quote shipping by location. I prefer to ship by FedEx since they're close to me but I'm flexible on that.

This cost me over $300 to assemble not including labor (have receipts). It's only been used a couple of times. I'd like to get $250 plus shipping for it.
