Possible to make a 986S sound like a 996 C4S?

Recommended Posts

So a friend is looking to purchase a 996 C4S, we went and checked one out today and it was equipped with the PSE (with the button). This thing sounded amazing when we fired it up and little taps on the throttle were spine tingling. I installed a Borla on my 986S soon after I purchased it and it doesn't sound nearly as awesome as the C4S. The C4S system reminded me of the bark of my old Mark IV R32 with the flappers open.

Any (reasonable) way to achieve the same aural pleasure on my 986S?

If you want sound try the Evo intake along with the right muffler..I have the GHL..The combination is spine tingling and pretty mean..Sounds absolutely Porsche.I havent heard much about a Borla muffler on a Boxster...I know exactly what sound your talking about with the VW VR6 engine. I had a few VWs (GTI, Corrado). One of the sweetest sounding 6 cylinders I've heard but believe me, your Boxster flat 6 engine with intake and the right exhaust beats it.

Anyone who has heard my Boxster will tell you it sounds fantastic. The secret is more than just the muffler. You're on the right path with the Borla, but you'll need to get a pair of 100 cell cats and a nice set of headers. Additionally, I have changed the intake completely to a straight BMC canister. The growl may not be quite as low as the 996, but it will be very impressive.
