Need help locating a motor and exhaust system diagram for my 1999 Boxster 986.

I saw a nice diagram that helps me understand my Boxster, but it's for a 2005 987. I think I may have an exhaust leak on the driver's side that's noticeable when it's cranked up in my garage.
Can anyone help me locate a nice diagram like in the link below that's for a 1999?
Thanks,

From what I can tell, the diagram in this link came from Topspeed.com.

Paul from this forum pointed me to the link for Porsche parts catalog. The pieces making up the exhaust system can be seen in the exploded view of the catalog.
Good luck

Get under the car and look for exhaust leaks, if you have one you might be able to see a carbon like stain (blackening) where the leak is. Just that at the header and trace back on each side.

Thanks for the link. I found the page with the exploded view. Not as easy to view as the other diagram, but still works.
Nice to have a catalog of parts and what they are called.
Do most Boxster owners have an actual catalog of parts so they can tell what to order, or is it just as well to use what's online? I tend to like to have things in my hands.
If so, is there a good place to purchase that most folks use? I see this site has a DVD I can order.
