Muffler

Recommended Posts

Sirs,

I need a new muffler for my 01 S Boxster. I have a line on an 03 S muffler and I think I can get it a reasonable price? Will this 03 unit work on my 01?

Get a Dansk sport muffler, there is no resonance and it gives a slightly deeper and slightly louder tone. I ran with the Dansk by itself for a little while, but now I have Cargraphic headers and Cargraphic sport cats, now it sounds like a proper sports car.

You don't have to go all the way like that but the Dansk sport muffler is a real nice addition and it's stainless steel with a really nice build quality, Performance Products has them on sale for $760.

Don't put a used muffler on your car, I think that's just asking for trouble with corrosion if it's been sitting around for a while - I don't think the factory exhaust is stainless at all.

It will work. Ian on the UK Boxster board with a 2000 2.7 put a 2003 muffler on his car. He also put on a 2003 rear bumper cover and side vents, and is looking for a 2003 front bumper. I think he wants a 2003 part by part.

The 2003 muffler is identical for the 3.2 and 2.7. The only thing different is the single or dual tip, but the tip is held on with a bolt so you can use either tip. The Box muffler has always been stainless.

Ian's 2000 with the 2003 look. Jeff

Tool Pants,

Can you do the same thing Ian did without adding an 03 bumper to an 01?

Performance Products sells a rear diffuser that looks the same as the one pictured except it attaches to your current bumper cap without replacing everything.

Sorry about that this site is a little different to ours is the uk, Anyway Tool Pants PM me telling me off your plight so did a bit of research for you I spoke to the place where I bought the 03 exhaust from and he said that they had not tried it before on a boxster S ,but couldn't see why it would not work.this got me thinking when the car was first upgraded to the 03 bumper still had the 2000 model exhaust on will try and post the pic below, and the 03 exhaust was put on by a opc bodyshop couple of weeks later and went straight on,and believe me they would moaned if was not straight forward.

Hope this helps

Gang,

Thanks for your help! I am getting close to making my mind up. Waiting on a few prices prior to ordering.

Keep up the good work.

That is because this is a LHD board. :lol:

To translate what Ian said into Yankee English. He put the 2003 rear bumper cover on. He then put the 2003 muffler on for cosmetic reasons because it has a fatter exhaust tip. The picture I posted is the 2003 muffler. Ian's picture is when he still had his original 2000 muffler. You can see the tip on a 2003 muffler is larger. This is also true with the old and new S muffler with the dual tips.

Ok, I went and purchased a muffler. I got a regular S model made for my 01 S Boxster.

Now I need one more part, I think?

I'm looking at my 6 speed manual transmission and all I have is four bolts finger tightend into the housing. I know I need the part that these bolts hold in place to hang my muffler from. Does anyone know for certain the part number.

Also an exploded view of this area would be great.

Thanking you guys in advance for your patience

Max :unsure:

Tool Pants,

Is the part labeled U an adapter for a tiptronic transmission? I can not make sense out of it for any other reason?

I get this answer and I should be good to go on this project.

Thanks Again for your patience with me, I know I am kind of a pest.

? The parts are numbered.

Send me a direct email and I will send you the full size that also has a description of each numbered part which also tells you any differences for a tip.
