981 Cayman & Boxster Exhaust System Basics
The Porsche 981 Cayman & Boxster comes from the factory with a sporty tuned exhaust note that is enhanced with the PSE-equipped sport exhaust. Opening up the flow of exhaust on the 981 not only improves performance and power delivery but it also enhances the sound output of the flat 6 engine. The factory headers utilize a massive catalyst that is both heavy and restrictive. Many consumers opt to install a full exhaust to maximize the power output of the 981. Choosing the right exhaust is usually a matter of personal preference. Below are some key consumer considerations when researching or purchasing a system.
