    Best exhaust for 996?

    I'm starting to look for a low mile 03-04TT or C4S. Its simply amazing how mod-friendly the turbo car is. The car will be a daily driver as i dont like driving my 360 all the time - too much attention.

    I've already started to look into mods. I was going to get a RUF exhaust and ECU - however a good friend informed me that the RUF is simply a gutted Turbo exhaust (is this true?).

    Other than that, i'm looking at kreisseg and 9ff. The Kreisseg is pretty pricey and i'm not sure how long it takes to get one. My friend (who told me about the RUF scam) suggested I check out the 9ff exhaust. Sounds pretty sweet. I like the ability to "mute" the exhaust, and the power gains of 38HP sounds pretty respectable.

    I know that these guys are pretty new. I read about a couple of their cars in excellence (awful magazine) and understand that they build stupid powerful turbo motors and set a speed record last year.

    Does anybody know anything more about them? I mean, 388kph is great and all, but i dont need all that - just something to keep me smiling when i'm not driving my Fcar.

    Any suggestions??

    When I get my Turbo I'll be doing my shopping here.
    www.evoms.com Very good site with lots of tuning kits.
    Let us know what you go with and how it runs then. Good luck.

    Porsche's OEM PSE is definitely a good option in terms of quality, sound and resale value for the car. I had Fabspeed's on my previous C2. Price is very attractive, build quality is fair but lots of resonance at lower rpm's. I also noted heat isolation and draining on Fabspeeds was not part of the production terms of reference. After some 20,000 km with those mufflers my rear bumper paint simply turned greyish due to the heat of the mufflers.

    I had OEM PSE on my 996 and it was absolutely great. It is very popular second hand as well when you want to move it on.

    Interesting! An example of a 3rd party offering that is not so hot, as it does not address all system issues. If one wants to maintain one's car for a while it's best to stick to factory parts.

    BTW... I for one do not care about different exhaust systems... I think the standard exhaust note is fine, and would not like to stand out in the crowd with a loud gratuitous exhaust. That's why, I guess, I do not care for Ferraris. A Modena at 35MPH in traffic sounds like it is racing on a track - too much ostentation without any substance. YMMV.

    Ah dude, not to ruffle any feathers, but a Ferrari is a race car. For that matter, so is a Porsche. Most aftermarket exhausts (including the PSE) sound a ton better than stock, which is easy because you don't hear stock at all, what you most hear is the airbox.

    As for Ruf, I have that exhaust on my car and I can tell you without exception that it is not a clone of the stock exhaust. Indeed, though a bit similar, the packing/internals are completely different, the exhaust note growls but is not obnxious like cat bypass pipes, and I didn't seem to lose any mid-band performance (a major concern with all those free-flowing exhausts out there).

    Net net, one cannot go wrong with an add-on exhaust; it has enhanced my driving experience immeasurably.
