For 2009-> 997.2 owners looking to significantly enhance the exhaust tone of their car and are willing to accept a slight loss of power, we offer an X-Pipe section.
Our X-Pipe is designed for enthusiasts craving a more melodious, fuller exhaust note, while also reducing weight, and are willing to sacrifice a few hp to do so. An X-Pipe is an affordable and simple-to-install modification.
An X-Pipe traditionally enhances the exhaust note of an engine by proving a "balancing" effect to the two engine banks. The OE rear center muffler does allow a small amount of engine bank balancing, but it also keeps the overall sound volume and tone too much on the subdued side for the enthusiast. Our X-Pipe increases the sound volume, but without any reduction in overall sophistication and "polish" of the note, and in fact augments the most pleasing sounds that this new engine is capable of producing.
Highlights of this system:
* 5.5lbs weight savings
* 100% T304 Stainless Steel Construction
* Complete bolt-in replacement for OE center rear muffler
While the X-Pipe is a sound enhancer, it does create a tad more flow restriction to the exhaust gas, resulting in low and high rpms power loss.
