Retrofitting PSE

Recommended Posts

Buddy has a 2001 Porsche 996 w/3.4L and stock exhaust. He recently purchased a pair of factory OEM Porsche sport exhaust mufflers from a local guy who was converting his car to a track only car and took them off. We want to install these mufflers but need the additional parts. Can anyone please provide part#'s for what I will need to install them. Right now have the mufflers w/ brackets and the associated solenoid etc... I "believe" I will need wiring harness, vacuum hoses and cabin buttons.

Also, anyone have a "how-to" or a link with pictures of a retrofit installation?

Finally, if it turns out to be too much trouble to do the wiring and vacuum what happens if we install "just" the mufflers? Are they in the "ON" mode without electronics and vacuum or the "OFF" position? In other words can we just install mufflers and have them be LOUD all the time?

I tried buying some of the parts from the dealer listed in TSB and found a coupler weren't available. I think one part was the bracket to hold the tank. I ended up going to Carnewll (sp?) and they had a kit with all the parts.
