  1. I do quite a few with ceramic coating. It is optional. Ceramic coating reduces the radiant heat from the mufflers. Since they are tucked up next to the motor, this a good thing. We media blast the mufflers before applying the ceramic coating. This gives the mufflers another layer of protection which will also help with their longevity. Is it necessary...no Is it a nice option that functions well...yes
  2. Could you elaborate on the small loss in low end power with the Fister exhaust? How did it manifest itself? I don't have Variocam issues, but am considering the Fister exhaust for my '99 996. The Fister mod produces great sound, especially above 2800 rpm. However, I did notice a slight loss in power when letting out the clutch. You needed to pay a little more attention and give it a little more gas. Also, my 2004 has Variocam Plus and when the intake valves switch from small to large lift you could really feel the surge much more than with the stock mufflers. I went back to the stock m
  3. It is not as loud as a muffler bypass. It is only a partial bypass. A lot of the exhaust still passes through the muffler. Just a portion goes through the bypass. It is louder than stock at idle, but not annoyingly loud at all. When you are heavy on the gas, backpressure in the muffler forces more through the bypass, and it sounds great!
  4. If your referring to FisterD's response. The left side is the MK2 and the right side MK1 type mod. I don't follow the MKI, MKII designations...sorry or the confusion. I classify my muffler mods by "stages". The less aggressive, less loud being "I", and the louder , more aggressive being "II" My Stage I (MkII) is the milder, less aggressive mod. Connecting the third unused port to the outlet. My Stage II (MkI) is louder and more aggressive sounding. connecting the inlet directly to the outlet. Hey fisterD. What mod did you do on your exhaust? Is it 3.4 or 3.6? Is it a significan

  6. Carrera Guy, turbo mufflers will not fit on your cab. the tip mounts are too far outside to compensate for the wide body of the turbo. I have the perfect solution for. Contact me at fisterd@earthlink.net
  7. Boxster muffler mounts vary by year model somewhat. perhaps it would help if you said what year/engine. Actually, what I have is the stainless tubing to do the mod on a Boxster, so I'm not sure how important the year is. Is there a big difference in muffler design between the different years?
  8. Anything like this for the 986 (base Boxster) ??? Just email me directly a : fisterd@earthlink.net I'm actually working on a Boxster mod now, but my test vehicle just got totalled! So, I need a test car in Northern Cal....anyone interested?
  9. Chuck, good to hear from you again. Yes. you were one of my first 996 modifications. I had been doing only 993's before that. You should stop by and see the shop sometime. I just installed a 2 post lift. The shop should be completed sometime this summer, and I'll be having a get together of some sort to celebrate. You'll definitely get an invite.
  10. This is a 996 with the mod. Here is a 996 with Stage II (MKI)996 Stage II I prefer to do the mods all in stainless. Stainless tubing and weld it with stainless.
  11. Yes, Thats me. I have done many of these mods for guys all over the US with great results. If you would like more info, please contact me directly at :fisterd@earthlink.net It is definitely a worth-while modification!
