Considering Tequipment Exhaust System

Recommended Posts

I'm considering an original Tequipment exhaust that has popped up on Ebay. It is P/N 996 111 987 00 and was removed from a 2000 Boxster S.

I own a 2000 Boxster (not an S). Does anyone know if this unit it will fit the 2.7 engine as well or if there will be any modifications required? I've read previous discussions on exhaust systems that mention required switches and harnesses.

Any comments on what the unit will sound like on the 2.7 engine would also be appreciated.

The "switches and harnesses" are only required if you want to do the fancy (and very laborious) install which allows the valves on the bypass pipes to be controlled by the ECU. If this install is done, the ECU will close the bypass valves between 27 MPH and 42 MPH to make the exhaust quieter. This seems silly and is probably related to some quirk in how sound testing is done in certain countries. If the vacuum controls on the bypass valves are left unconnected, the valves stay open. This is one of the quieter "sport exhausts" so I doubt you will feel the need to operate it in the "quiet mode".

The simple install can be done as a DIY in a few hours.
