Speedtech Exhaust


Recommended Posts

Anyone here have any personal experience with speedtech exhausts? Just saw their ad in Panorama and they make a good looking exhaust for the Boxster for only $545 with the PCA discount. Close to my house so I'm gonna go check them out. On the phone they seem like real Porschephiles. Price seems too good to be true. They claim great sound, lightweight, no resonance, quality build, all of the above... If you haven't heard of them here is their website...

I do not have this one, but I have one built EXACTLY like it. It resonates between about 2600 and 3000 rpm and drones down low around town. Thats in a sweet spot for about 65mph on the highway too. With the top down it isn't objectionable, but with the top up it gets old. It does sound sweet as hell above 3000 rpms though. Enough so that I have lived with the resonance for a year. But now I'm looking for another solution with less resonance.

Hi Andy,

Just curious what solution you found....

Am thinking about an exhaust upgrade for my 01 Boxster, but don't want to spend too much.

I heard very good reviews of the Maxspeed exhaust, which also happens to have a good price - around $580

All the best,

Gus

They were just discussing this exhaust on 986forum. Yes, it looks like it's exactly the same exhaust as Maxspeed, Che, and the cheap eBay offerings. If they're all the same I'd just shop by lowest price. Yes, they do appear to have resonance from what many others have said.

For less resonance you're limited in your options - Porsche Sport Exhaust, Gemballa, and I believe Dansk. Basically if the exhaust is huge and quiet, then it probably won't have resonance because of the design with resonance chambers. If the exhaust is light weight, small, loud, and more of a pass-through design, then yes you'll probably also have a loud resonance.
