Looking for a sound upgrade to my 996. I like a deeper, more guttural sound. Based on videos of each, it seems the Fabspeed is more to my liking. That doesn’t mean the Fister sounds bad—because it doesn’t—I think I just prefer the Fabspeed sound. But, in all honesty, it’s hard to tell from a video. I’ve never heard either in person.

 

I’m wondering who has experience with either one of these (or both) and looking for opinions/reasons why one might be better than the other. While they both produce great sounds, there’s a significant difference in price and benefits.

That's a fairly apples to oranges comparison. There's obviously going to be a major difference with no muffler at all (fabspeed bypass pipes - deletes the muffler and is most likely crazy loud). I think this is a better/more direct comparison: http://www.fabspeed.com/996-carrera-maxflo-performance-exhaust-system/  As you can see, the price difference is huge... I can speak for the Maxflo's as I've got them on my car (I didn't purchase though - They were on it when I bought). They sound great and save a little weight - the power increase is highly debatable and without the rest of a complete system and possibly a tune shouldn't really be a factor.

That's good to know! I am looking just to get the sound a bit deeper and louder, not crazy! I've heard a few others recommend the Maxflow system as well, and it sounds like that might be the better option. But, wow, yeah—that price! Well, it's not something I was looking to do immediately. Thank you!!

I had Tubi and Mille Miglia.  I currently run the Mille Miglias and am very happy.

 

Both offer a different sound in addition to Fabspeed and Fister.

 

For me, the Tubi's were higher pitched and had the Italian "crackle".  The Mille Miglia's were lower in pitch, with more "growl".  Sort of comparing a Ferrari to a Corvette.

 

The Mille Miglia's are louder than Tubi, but not bypass loud.  

 

The Fister's sound good, sort of a subdued blend of straight pipe crackle and lower volume aftermarket, until you get on it.

 

They are all good.  Like dporto said:  "apples to oranges."  Just depends on what you want.

 

Another option is to have your stock ones modified.  Have the Fister done, and then have the internal baffles reworked.  The inside is a maze that would drive a mouse crazy!

 

Also look into M&M, FVD sells them.  Some very cool exhausts.

 

But, since your original question was to Fabspeed or Fister, for a deeper sound, why not try the Fister and the other "Gundo" where it bypasses from the top capped area of the stock muffler, sort of "double."  Don't get me wrong, Fabspeed makes a great product, what about the Supercuts?

 

Best of luck,

Paul

This is the M&M from FVD, which has no side mufflers, basically an X pipe with cats and mufflers, or quad mufflers for the cat delete.

      Hi all, 
      This will be my first post, thanks for a great forum ! 

      I've recently purchased a exhaust system from Design911 in the UK which has the valvetronic function on. This is said to replicate the PSE which my car does not have factory installed. 
      Wired it up and put the vacuum hoses, tested the system and it works fine.

      Over to the issue for my car:
      When starting up the car, the neutral positon of the valves is open, which means a lot of noice from the exhaust. 
      When switching this by the solenoid, sending vacuum into the system and the valves closes. This means less sound. 
      But when the valves is closed the car wont run properly at the RPM range of 5500-7000 RPM's there is also fault codes for misfire on cylinder 2.

      The strange thing is that this works perfectly when the valves is open. I've tried two differnet vacuum sources, into the ressonator and also for the left hand side cooling system vacuum solenoids. Without any differnce. I tried to run vacuum directly to the vacuum actuators on the exhaust without any difference and also tried manually applying vacuum and using a one way check valve to keep the vacuum while not connected to the cars vacuum line. No vacuum leaks, no fault codes when driving with the valves open.

      Same result every time. So have anyone had some similar issues to their car ? 
      Thanks in advance for any help !

      I have a 2003 Boxster with the CDR23 radio and external amplifier mounted in the front trunk.  There are two multi-pin connectors, a fiber optic connector and an antenna connector on the rear of the head unit.  The display on the head unit in the car seems to be fine as the display appears to be working as it should.  The problem is no sound out of any speakers.  The problem was intermittent for quite a while as sometimes when I started the car I would have sound from  the speakers and other times no sound.  Sometimes I would be driving and the sound would suddenly just quit.  Now there is no sound at all, but the head unit display still appears to be working ok.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be the problem?

      Hello there, this is my first post here and I’m writing because of problem with my boxster.
      Today in the morning I’ve started my 2002 boxster and noticed strange sounds from the engine/ rear side of the car
      It’s a metallic, grinding sound like a loose piece of metal or something like that
      Sound disappears when you press gas and comes back once you loose the pedal, I don’t know if it changes while engine is warm
       
      Also, check engine light shown up yesterday, when I connected my BT OBD2 there was no error code.
      I came with that to workshop also, and they said it’s a catalyst efficiency error.
       
      I’ve had that error code a while ago, I’ve replaced mass air flow meter and check engine light disappeared. 
      I think it might be a problem with maf again because I bought not the cheaper, not the original one, but why are there these strange sounds? I’m worried about this. Could it be catalyst this time? Or again should I replace maf? This time I’ll buy original one.
       
       
       
      here are two Videos I made
       
       
       
       
       
      Also I’m sorry if you can’t understand something, my english is not perfect.
      Thank you for all replies, I hope we will solve that problem together

      Hi all I’ve just found this forum tonight and thought I’d ask more experienced users what they are getting power wise after a remap, I’m taking my 08 CTT into Zensport tomorrow morning for a remap and I’m wondering what kind of power I should be expecting with the following mods I’ve had done last week prior to the remap.
       
      HAYWARD AND SCOTT EXHAUST WITH X PIPE, REAR BOXES, SECONDARY CAT DELETE, TURBO S STAINLESS STEEL TIPS.   IPD PLENUM    K&N PANEL FILTERS   AGENCY POWER RECIRC VALVES   Many thanks, Andy
