Looks GOOD! Love the vinyl

Check that rear muffler, those tips arenít factory. Might be SW tip assemblies on there or you got lucky with a center bypass, though Iíd expect youíd know that right away haha

Right on FBG!! ... Every time I get finished with a drive, my heart is pumping & all I can think to say is "That is just so Intoxicating". Special car for sure.

Enjoy!!

Also +1 on Noro's suggestion. I installed the Carnewal Manual PSE Valve Switch a few weeks ago, and it's perfect. Lets you enjoy the exhaust sound even down low below 3K AND eliminates that annoying pop-change in exhaust tone at 3K/4K.

Thanks exactly what I would do. Iíve had a 964 for over 13 years and never once listened to the stereo. Was weird for my kids at first riding in the car on long trips, but now they totally get it. They read, eat, drink and listen to the stereo in momís car, and now understand the difference. I love the focus and involvement that comes from driving a 911.

Great thread, enjoy your new car!

Yup stereo not needed. I do find myself driving to reach the exhaust valve opening which means it needs to go! This is what the car has- looks like it has a side delete!

Good decision on the stereo.
Thats a center delete...which in terms of sound alone is the best imo. Enjoy!

Iím pretty sure your side mufflers are there even though the pictures arenít very clear. If you had side delete and center delete you would already be deaf

Definitely looks like a SW center delete, need better photos of the side mufflers to see if they're still there but they look like factory valves that would entail the side mufflers still being installed. Take a look into the rear bumper area from behind the rear tire, about 3-4in off the rear tires should be the muffler cans. If it's a big empty space....they gone haha.

This is the type of car that can provide therapy. If you come home from work go rip a on/off ramp and back and put her away again for tomorrow. Freakin unreal. I honestly had no idea......

Wait until you give rides to family and friends. It will be fun to see their reactions.
Other than us Porschephiles, no one really has a clue how different and mega these cars are.

If you want more sound at lower revs you can always unplug the valves. Its a simple 30 sec job, wont even get your hands dirty!

Is that the small black hose that is crimped on the valve? Just put a golf tee in there is the plan.

No, there is a much easier way than messing with the vacuum lines down under the car.

Just unclip the electrical connection on the top side of the engine bay, on the passenger side. I'll put a pic down below for reference on where it lives...

.... suggestion: If you decide to leave it unclipped for any length of time, while you're assessing how it sounds,... then use some painters tape first to wrap both connections, then cover the painters tape with electrical tape to avoid melting the painters tape. I did that & drove it for several hundred miles before I decided I did not like the drone inside the car at around 60mph. Hence the reason I went with the Carnewal switch.

There's some good close-ups in this thread too - Post # 54. And of course Post # 3 has great pics that show your current exhaust flow if you're interested in how the gases flow.

https://rennlist.com/forums/997-gt2-...deletes-4.html

Then look at this thread, and slide down to Post # 18. I put some pictures in there too (while I was installing the Carnewal switch).
