Is There Such A Thing As NO DRONE Aftermarket Boxster S Exhaust Muffle


Recommended Posts

Is there such a thing as a no drone aftermarket muffler?

If so, please advice where I can source one?

Also, for anyone has experience with one of those ebay modified factory Boxster mufflers, how loud are they? And are there any cabin drones between 2500-3000rpm?

Here is a link to the aforementioned ebay modified factory muffler: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Porsche-Boxster-986...les_CarParts_SM

Thanks for any inputs.

Hey Drem!

Put the Boxster in a gear somewhat too low to pull a steep hill and accelerate up that hill.

The mod seen above is EXACTLY what Porsche did with their "Technique" sold mufflers. They re-route raw exhaust to the tips :)

Easy and cheap to do! Porsche put an electronic control on it.

Thanks Brad, I'll give it a try.

I am so used to the sounds and noise from my 914 that compared to the Boxster it seems like pure luxury.

Everything seems to feel okay

I don't expect it to be Lexus quiet, after all it is a soft-top sports car.

Sometimes I am not sure if what I am hearing is right or wrong.

You seem to go a lot of places to "take care" of peoples cars.

Are you down in Mission Viejo much?

Next time you are in the area I'd like to meet up with you.

Brad,

I dont suppose bu chance you know anyone in the phoenix area that does these exhaust mods?

- Ben

Precision Chassis in Gilbert builds Spec Boxsters - he could do it or build a custom exhaust for you.

Following up on my prior post, the Oettle modified muffler with the bypass pipes does not drone or resonate, as it is a factory muffler. I also have Fabspeed bypass pipes eliminating the secondary cats and the sound is superb.

This mod is very simple to do if you have welding skills or can pay someone to do it for you; cost of materials is negligible.

Do you have a link to the Oettle mod? I've heard good things about the Dansk but they don't make a sausage for the early 986 2.5's anymore. Anyone tried the Maxflow small mufflers as a replacement?

Go to pedrosgarage.com. It will be in English, not German. Don't think the Germans give DIY.
