Respect 986 !

Since I installed aftermarket GHL exhaust with FAB Speed Cat bypas, for the past week now I get thumbs up and positive comments. For example, one dude said god bless your car man..now common! this is a must mod!
Driving a small red sports car around town and screaming like an animail! Yes the chicks dig it!

$800 for the FAB Speed Cat Bypass including installation and around $1500 for the exhaust.

Two postive comments this morning: 1) man, nice wheels!
2) nice car!


When I drive my 996 TT nobody even notices.

ok, ok...this weekend i will make a short run video...i'll put it in youtube.

I don't like the sound of a stock boxster because it is to quite..wimpish. you have no idea of the potential of a boxster when you add ecu upgrade,aftermarket exhaust, tight suspension, headers and cat bypass.
