    Experiences with cargraphic exhaust system for GT3 (RS)?

    dear all,

    visited my porsche center today (got my front cage and fire extinguisher de-installed)... they've just finished equipping another GT3 RS with a cargraphic exhaust, which they demonstrated to me on the parking lot... needless to say it sounded awesome and that i now want one!!

    it's available as a full kit (TÜV certified) which reportedly brings a 15-20 HP power gain or as a "budget" version -- just for better sound. full kit does cost around EUR 6,000, the latter approx EUR 2,000

    i know that cargraphic exhausts have been discussed a couple of times in the past, but has anyone made experiences with GT3 (RS) models? how do they compare to europipe's?

    and... is these HP increase for real? on the other hand, does the "sound only" version mean that there will be a slight loss of torque?

    T.I.A.!

    Why de-installing the fire extinguisher? Last Sunday there was a Ferrari burning at Hockenheim. There was definately a fire extinguisher needed ...

    I have on my GT3MK1 cargraphic exhoust system full with ECU and air filter and the dyno shows 363 PS (they come from factory with 350-352 ps not 360)

    i'm planning a lot of trips over the next couple of weeks (munich, berlin) -- not to racetracks and always with a passenger and some luggage aboard. after that, i'll probably re-install both the cage and the extinguisher

    Re: Experiences with cargraphic exhaust system for GT3 (RS)?

    i just ordered the cargraphic system, they're going to install it next thursday. i'll post some MP3s then...

    Re: Experiences with cargraphic exhaust system for GT3 (RS)?

    Does that system work with a standard GT3 as well?
    Or just the GT3RS.

    i'm neither a cargraphic nor an exhaust expert, but as far as i know it's a GT3 system which also works on RS spec cars since there are no or nearly no differences regarding the engine/exhaust system (apart from the polished tailpipes).

    Re: Experiences with cargraphic exhaust system for GT3 (RS)?

    Have you considered Europipe as well? Ask Luigi, he's got one.

    yes.

    i've read luigis (old) postings regarding his europipe. but he said that he made good experiences with cargraphic on his GT2 as well.

    to be honest: i have really no clue which exhaust is better, but since the MD of my porsche center got the cargraphic installed to his GT3 RS it sure isn't too bad... and i really loved the sound (and volume ) -- the quicktime movies from the europipe website haven't quite convinced me and i like it quick'n easy. so, if my porsche center recommends cargraphic... fine !!one for me please!

    Re: Experiences with cargraphic exhaust system for GT3 (RS)?

    ZZ,our friend Max has a Cargraphic on his 2003 GT3 and sounds great....GREAT!!

    Good choice!

    Ciao

    Re: Experiences with cargraphic exhaust system for GT3 (RS)?

    I guess you already made your decision Soenke...
    You chose a very good product, my past experience with Cargraphic on the GT2 has been really good.Max has an Export version of the mufflers on his GT3 and they have a very nice sound, not unpleasantly loud.
    The Europipe system compared to Cargraphic is certainly better built, the version on their website is the regular one, the one I have has a very different sound (way louder than even the loudest Cargraphic), imagine the sound of a racing RS car and you're pretty close!I also have their sport cats.
    You've made a good choice anyway, and I think you'll be satisfied...

    As far as I know the GT3RS has a different ECU due to the RAM air intake.

    hi all,

    i talked to europipe and they told me, that they concentrate on selling their exhausts in the US.
    there is no TÜV or ABE for germany, the europipe exhaust is not road legal here.

    looking forward to hear your RS!

    viele grüße
