A Quick Muffler Question


Recommended Posts

I have a quick question for the gruppe.

I have a '99 986 with a "Top Speed Pro1" muffler on the car right now, and I really like the look with the dual round outlets, but the exhaust resonates in the car from 2000 to 2800 RPM with the top up. Will a muffler from a 986s fit on a regular 986?

Does anyone have any experiences with other mufflers that might be a little throatier than stock.

Thanks

Bill.

You can fit any Boxster Muffler, although it may require a special bracket, depending on the year.

Most of the aftermarket mufflers for the Boxster will drone.

Happy Boxstering,

Yes, you can swap out the 'S' for the non-S and vice versa, but 987 mufflers will not work on 986 cars without some effort and cutting. I've got an article where I show replacing a stock system with a 'S' muffler here: http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Boxster_Tech/46-EXHAUST-Muffler/46-EXHAUST-Muffler.htm

Thanks Wayne, Does the Dansk S muffler drone or resonate?

Bill

Nope, it's pretty solid. I didn't have any complaints about it, but then again, I didn't drive with it on very long before we swapped in the Fabspeed exhaust...
