Exhaust removal/install


Recommended Posts

PLEASE HELP. Before anyone flames, I have researched both this site and other boxster sites about this, so please don't respond with, "Do a search, it's been discussed."

I am planning on installing an after market exhaust. I own a 98 box, so it appears that removing the bumper is highly suggested and makes it a lot easier. I think I can get the bumper off, BUT, how about the exhaust itself? There's plenty of information on removing the bumper, but how do I take the stock exhaust off!? How many bolts are there, and what special tools am I going to need if any? If this is a serious pain in the A$$ to do, should I just pay my local porsche mechanic to do it?

Please, if anyone has done this on an early model boxster, please give me any information. I really appreciate any help from you guys. Thanks in advance.

First what year car do you have?

I have attached two pictures of the different exhaust.

Should be straight forward.

1) Undo the wiring for the oxygen sensors. 4 of them, just do the wiring clip, you can take them out later if you want to.

2) Undo the bolts after the exhaust headers. 3 on each side. Buy new ones. And new gaskets.

3) Undo the bolts on top of the muffler.

4) The whole system should now come down.

5) Take the headers off it you want to. Buy new gaskets and bolts. Buy some anti seize as well.
