My sound clips should be running, search through on my putfile site. Let me know if any need refreshing as they can time out over the months.

Cheers,

David

Caveman, which of your putfile clips corresponds to LPMM's?

Svaha, if you click the "RSRs-vs-Modified-Muffler" videoclip with the two black 993s, the first one to take off is has the RSR's and the 2nd has the LPMM's.. Thats my guess anyways .. Great site btw David, love it

Just got done taking the mufflers off. Theyr're some big cans..damm.

Anyways, can I or should I do the LPMM and allow for the heat shield or do away with the shields?

Generally an angle grinder is used to cut away at the shields to allow for the Bypass Pipes.

Definately notch-out the heat shield to fit the new bypass pipe.

I did a few things:

1 - I replaced the bolts and lock nuts that hold the head sheilds with stainless steel ones.

2 - I used a zip blade (a very thin grinding blade that can we used on a hand held grinder) to do the rough cutting and then a air die grinder to get the curves in.

3 - I painted the shields with aluminum high temp header paint to freshen the look and protect the new exposed metal

4 - Now you can mount your nice and shiny heat shields on the mufflers again and go from there. They mufflers generate a lot of heat so you want the shields.

Cheers,

Mike

Mark,

Apologies, I thought there were more LPMM clips. The only one is the one that Viggo referred to. Check out the older white 911 pulling away at Brands!

Cheers,

David

Just to add some more DIY thoughts to this good list, I ....

a) used the zip wheel and die grinder to 'saddle notch' the bypass pipe first.
b) when this pipe was a tight fit to the muffler pipes, it was traced with a Felt Tip pen.
c) used a hole saw to punch through and the die grinder to remove the rest prior to welding .... can't have any restriction

Think I'll redo the heat shields your way!

Does it matter which gauge is used? How about flavor, 304, 316 or 321?

It was 94 here today! It's hard to imagine it snowing anywhere. You've got to get that bad boy out, warmed up, and smack the tach a few times. That's when the beast is roused.
