    New Engine = Different Sound?

    I have barely 160 miles on the new replacement engine and it sounds different! More muffle sound than the original engine. Will a new engine sound that much different? Even my daughters noticed the difference in the sound.

    P.S. Kinda of cool to find out when my car was born, the two year service is 17 days away. Time of birth to time of delivery: 56 days.

    Hopefully, as the miles accumulate, the sound will become louder. I know my previous 997S got progressively louder as the miles built up. Maybe you're used to the old, louder, sound.

    Re: New Engine = Different Sound?

    My 997S got louder after a few thousand miles, so maybe that is the case.

    Re: New Engine = Different Sound?

    Same here.

    Re: New Engine = Different Sound?

    Yes, the engine sounds get louder with a few extra miles. Mine, with about 4,250 miles, is noticeably more "gutsy."

    By the way, could it be that the device they have added to the intake manifold to make the sound more gutsy takes a while to "break in?" Last week - for the first 5 or 6 minutes of running the car, it sounded like the exhaust pipes were going to fall off. The engine ran rough. Then, it cleared up. I think the device in the intake manifold sometimes sticks a bit.
