Right, sorry, I was talking 996s. A 996 exhaust certainly wouldn't fit under a Boxster. The angles are all wrong.

Well, the project is now underway. rear bumper and muffler are removed and welding has commensed. But it's not installed yet, so no sound clips are available yet. But thought I would post a few more pictures for your viewing pleasure.

the first pictures with the pieces are wrong. those are 18" glass packs and I switched them out for 12" glass packs instead. Sizing miscalculation. I can't wait.

Oh god.

Be prepared to wear earplugs and have a bottle of excedrin on you at all times, for the brain-compressing droning that will ensue.

ok, it's on. drove it at 9:30 tonight after putting it back together. sounds great over 3k revs. but yes, there is that dreadfull drone between 2k and 3k. more modifications to come. the engineer in my father is working overtime on why it's there and how to stop it.

as far as clips, i will have to borrow the equipment from someone to record it, so it may take a while. pictures will be up tomorrow.

Tierce, not to sound like a broken record, but the tailpipes are too short. Add about three feet to each tailpipe and you'll likely get rid of the drone.

Just add 20ft to each exhaust pipe and the drone will be so far behind you it wont bother you.

Ha! Good point. You'll need a trailer to tow the extra pipe, though.

3 feet you can fit in the stock location.

Yeah, I'll work on that. Don't think towing a trailer is going to help the handling. I have a pretty smart old man who loves a challenge like this. I'll keep you guys posted.

@ Tierce,

How long did it take you to make the exhaust?

I would definitely be interested in hearing what his solution to the droning is.
