    Need help!!! fabspeed or TECHART exhaust for 00' 996 ?

    Im getting a Unichip put on my 00' 996 in few days, but I was told to install the exhaust system first.
    I found tons of info on fabspeed but not much on techart.
    Also, any additional info on unichip will be greatly appreciated.
    I have a chance to buy slightly used techart sport exhaust for $500.00

    Thank you in advance

    Re: Need help!!! fabspeed or TECHART exhaust for 00' 996 ?

    Between the Fabspeed and Techart exhausts I would probably go with the fabs unless you are getting a good deal on the Techarts. I have heard a lot of good things about the Fabspeed units on the various 996 boards, and I have a friend with a set on his C2 cab- he loves them. The fabs sound very throaty and pretty loud IMO at full throttle. I have a set of Ruf exhaust on my 996 which sound pretty good to me, they have a nice almost air cooled note at idle and very aggressive full throttle sound. The Rufs are quite expensive IMO (over $1600) but they are a nicely made piece. If you're interested I have some sound clips available of my car on my web page <a href="http://hobbystage.net/porsche/dj996/" target="_blank">here.</a>
    I may even sell my set ... <img src="http://www.rennteam.com/w3timages/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

    My advise

    Take it or leave it but don't start whining afterwards :
    go for the original Porsche sport exhaust.
    It produces the "classic" 911 sound (especially when you leave the exhaust to the "loud" position all the time...you can install a switch or just easily tweak the whole thing) and has no negative effect on your overall power output.

    My wife says I am crazy but you guys probably understand it why I made the clip

    No, I think you are crazy too! :)

    Definitely the Techart - I have heard the fabspeed resonates badly at small continuous throttle openings... the Techart comes in 3 versions for volume requirements... and only the very loudest "race" version resonates.. the "sport" is lovely - get the Techart a FAR superior product - better sound, build, and power increase!
