Exhaust Question


Recommended Posts

I guess it depends on what parts of the exhaust you are trying to retrofit. The '00 and newer have the precats in the headers which is probably not a desireable feature unless you're really the tree-hugger type assuming the ECU knows what to do with it. The cats for different years have different part numbers, but I don't know what the differences are. Similar story for O2 sensors. The mufflers I have read many times will interchange and the clamps/connector pipe part numbers are the same, but I have heard that on certain earlier years, a new mounting bracket setup is needed to fit the newer mounting style. Which parts are you trying to swap?

I'm looking to replace the muffler, clamps and connecter pipes. I would like to find a used OE item in good shape. I'm hoping to find someone who went to an aftermarket solution and is selling the original. But I want to be sure that newer models will work.

Thanks

I recently replaced my muffler with an aftermarket one, but the aftermarket one used the original mounting clamps, tubes, etc. I find it hard to believe that they would be worn out, but you can probably get a new set from one of the online Porsche dealers like Sunset which is where I have gotten many parts from. Actually, I have an extra set of clamps, but not the sleeves (double-ended clamps). I don't have any affiliation or first-hand knowledge of using the "adapter" for the newer mufflers on the 2.5L, but here is a link on the Suncoast website I found for you:

Note that it lists the optional kit for 2.5L motors for $120 whereas the later 2.7 and 3.2 don't need it. A dealer could probably confirm. I have my "S" muffler in the classifieds if all works out. Good luck!

I have a rattling noise coming from the exhaust. Had the heatshields checked and was told that a baffle inside the muffler was the problem. I would like to replace the muffler and thought that replacing the hardware woud be a good idea as well. Would like to know what options I may have for a replacement muffler. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

I put an S muffler on my '99 and was very happy with the look and sound. It was just a little deeper in sound and not much louder. I had to buy the upper bracket for the S muffler because the mounting method had been changed over the years. I did the installation myself in about 2 hours without removing the rear bumper. Removing the bumper would have made it easier.

Good Luck,

Rich

C130122,

I think the link I posted above is what 'savinor' is talking about. Dealers should know what this adapter is. I doubt the pipe and clamps are rattling. It also took me about 2 hours without removing the bumper. The hardest part was getting the end pipes off--lots of wiggling and Liquid Wrench. Good luck!
