Default X Pipe ?

My 928 came with the Cat in a box. see picture -- think this is the OE one, complete with air pipes.

So, other picture shows what is on the car. Is this an X pipe?

(There is nothing for the air pump system to do-- on this car the belt is removed and from the rust on the pulley looks like this happened some years ago).

Sold the OE Cat on Ebay ! Incidentally : it weighed 11 Kgs ( 24lbs), so a potential for some worthwhile weight reduction.

You are in the UK? I suspect you have the Ritech x-pipe

http://www.nixsoft-consulting.co.uk/...hp?id=products

I have this and the silenced RMB installed. Awesome! If you want the car to sound mean then put the RMB on as well.

Do your eyes water now when siting at the red light?

what will happen without cats is that the rear PU cover will start to get a bronze haze on it from exhaust gases,
simple green takes it off followed by a wash with car soap then a good wax.

Your 928s without catalytics don't stink when you are sitting at the lights with the windows down? Mines do.

Amazing what a proper tune will do for a car.

The crossover shown is not made my Motorsport, Inc. The angles are definitely wrong and rob you of some horsepower. It probably sounds better than factory, however.

Thank you.

We no longer need dynos, we have fst951? Just curious, how can you say that from just looking at a photo? Is it only you, or are others also able to see this?

Ritech in the UK who sell this particular X-pipe have dyno graphs on their website indicating an increase in horsepower
