3 hours and £270 later and it's done.
This is how they should sound from the factory.








I still have the centre box so it's not as loud as my old 996.2, but on the other hand it sounds more classy and less boy racer.


You really need some good speakers to appreciate the sound but here is it.

And now with the centre box replaced with an X-Pipe.

This is what my 996.2 sounded like (little bit louder and due to the lack of the gen2 centre box.

Try Revolution at Brighouse between Leeds and Halifax. Great reputation and if you have a look at their website, they have a dedicated area the exhaust mod.

Edited post.
Had this done and after a week or so, im not convinced yet...
Definitely sounds better at idle and trundling about, but when I am just driving about it sounds a bit, dare I say it, farty?
Will give it a little longer see if it grows on me but I may end up just swapping beck to standard!

Can anybody tell me conclusively, does a 997 gen1 rear silencer, fit a gen2?

I'm looking at buying used back boxes for gundo on my gen2.

I have H&S bypass, will gen1 back boxes fit: a) the bypass b) the tailpipes c) the mounting brackets?

Thanks in advance...

James

Hi

I want to have the banana hack done to some spare rear boxes I have for gen2 car.

Anyone know what pipework i need to buy for the donor 'bananas'?

I did see a picture of a 2.5" 180 degree pipe but it did not have any other details.

the inlet and output are different on a gen2 so be careful on a banana mod.

This is very tempting to get done!
I'm just wondering if having this done would bring a CEL light up or EM light? And if it is still ok to do on the gen 1 turbo?

Thanks all.

Thanks Les - looks like my option is for Gundo as trying to get a pipe around to the outlet on the Gen2 will not work.

Just swapped the centre box for an X-Pipe.

Sounds great in real life when you hit 4K and it's under load.

Hi,

did the exhaust hack on my 2006 4S a few months ago, loving the sound but yesterday if failed the MOT on emissions. I've known the MOT tester for over 30 years as I used to navigate for him on road rallies so I trust him completely - he said it's probably the exhaust hack as he's had numerous Scoobies in where the owners have removed a silencer to make them sound better and they subsequently fail the MOT on emissions. When the put the missing box back on they pass.

When I start the car sometimes there's a very brief rattle from the exhausts that I can't recreated when it's running or when I'm under the car so I'm suspecting the CATs may be due for replacement.

Suggestions welcome as my C4S is now off the road until I get it sorted.

Rob

Tanks for the info Les. Work all done and fitted them myself. A bit tight to fit but the modder kept the pipes as close as possible. Sounds much better but certainly not offensive.
Will see if there is any issues next month come MOT. Think it should be ok as only took pipe from the blanked nipple to the existing outlet.
