  1. Not sure about a complete set of 4 cats. I can tell you from recent personal experience that used cats are highly valuable, even very old ones. Three weeks ago I got home late Friday from a business trip to Northern Virginia. I started my 1988 Toyota pickup and I sounded and ran terrible. Somebody hacked off the original catalytic converter! Toyota dealer estimated it was worth at least $50 scrap value for the platinum and palladium. As the economy has deteriorated, the price of precious metals has skyrocketed in the past few years and catalytic converter theft has become big business. The good news is anyone removing their cats can get a lot of money for them, and Porsches are low enough to the ground it's extremely difficult for someone to get under there and steal a catalytic converter Thanks for the tip, but i live in Guatemala, so i think is goin to be hard to sell them. Any way I´m thinking in eliminating the secondary one`s (pre muffler) I have an account on Ebay, so i will try to put them on sale there Well, good news, I finaly did the job (pay for that), and elimnated the secondary cats. 1. The sound got troatier, its a litter bet more high, nothing anoying. I really like the sound. more sporty 2. HP Gains?? dont think so, maybe 1 o 2, but i think is more the efect of the better sound. 3. For shure, i took out a good 3 lb from the rear of the car. I also painted the brake calipers in red..... I love the new look
  2. Loren, How you change MPH to KPH an F to C?? Thanks in advance
  3. I have a offer for a 99 996 c2 Tip with 30,000 miles on it, and i´m wondering if the Engine of this 911 is been changed. Is there any way to find if the engine has been changed other than goin to the oficial Dealer?? Thanks in advance

  5. Thaks Jmatta, seems like i`m going to do the same mod, unless some other member has more information. Regards
  6. JMATTA Do you know if eliminating the secondary cat sets, (pre-mufflers) will result in HP gain/lost??
  7. Vertex out of Florida is Fine but watch out for a company with the same name out of Los Angles they sell rip off parts! Read the description of the item, it says thas is a fibre carbon look, is an imitation, those are not carbon fiber door sill
  8. Looks like, Those are realy nice!! Do yo know de price of the Miro wheels??
  9. Sorry, but i don´t know the brand. I`brought the car ther in the USA, and the wheels came with the car. This weekend promise to check and see if i can find some brand.
  10. Hi, I have a 2002 Boxster 2.7 2002. Tiptronic and would like to eliminate the secondary catalytic converters and I´m wondering if any one has done this. I live in Guatemala City, so I don´t have problems with the emissions. I wonder if eliminating them would make the sound louder or will give me any performance gains due to the air flow gains?? I dont see any sensor after the secondary cat converters, so also don´s spect a check engine light to come on. Sorry for my English Thanks in advance for any comments PD. I´m posting pictures of my car
