Auto dimming mirrors, homelink, rain sensor RETROFIT possibility?


Recommended Posts

hi everybody,

Unfortunately my 2006 Carrera 4S does not have auto dimming mirrors, homelink and rain sensor.

Auto dimming and homelink I really would like to have. I know they are available for 996 but are the retrofit kits available for 997 yet??

Outside the subject , does anybody have the detailed picture of the inside of PSE mufflers or a pic of a gutted one. I want to get my stock muffler hacked just like the PSE one with custom made tips that are not fake. ( I am after single tip look). The reason I will not purchase PSE is, there are no weight savings or power gains plus I would hack it to be loud all the time so no valve needed.

Auto dimming mirrors, homelink and rain sensor were offered in Porsche Tequipment for the 996 - I have not yet seen them for the 997. They could likely be added but you would need to figure out the wiring harnesses, part numbers and actual installation. Or you could wait and see if Porsche adds them to Tequipment.

Thank you Loren. I hope Porsche adds these to Tequipment soon.

Here is a cutaway view of the muffler.

The bottom is the inlet, the middle is the outlet.

If you connect a pipe from the top (capped) outlet and connect it to the middle pipe, you have in effect

created a PSE muffler ( it bypasses the middle chamber , that's why it is louder )

Also, since the exhaust only goes thru ~1/2 of the muffler , there should be less resistance, therefore a few HP gained , although Porsche does not claim any.

Good luck .
