Exhaust transplant?


Recommended Posts

I have several questions within a question. Looking for an improvement in the sound of my stock exhaust setup. For purposes of this discussion, let's not talk about Fabspeed or GHL. First, will a stock GT3 exhaust setup (complete including headers, cats, mufflers, tips) bolt into a standard 996 (MY 02)? If so, is there any reason to do this? Is the GT3 setup equivalent to PSE? Rather than replace the whole stock setup, would it make sense to only replace certain parts (mufflers only?)? Concerning price, I can buy the used GT3 setup (used but mint) at a huge dicount vs. PSE for example. Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks.

A GT3 engine is based on the TT engine not the Carrera M96 engine. They are very different. The manifolds on the GT3 have 3 bolts per cylinder and the Carrera's have 2. I have never tried the GT3 mufflers or cats on a Carrera but I doubt they would line up right since the manifolds and engine position are slightly different.

My advice is forget about GT3 exhaust parts and concentrate on the sound/performance you want from a Carrera exhaust.

Thanks Loren! I think that's good advice.......
