Jay Read

Jay Read is a 996 Carrera owner and passionate Porsche enthusiast. He shares his passion for Porsche through his YouTube Channel Jay Read Porsche. When Jay reached out to learn more about different exhaust options for his 996 Carrera, like many folks, he wanted to hear more sounds. When he said he would be willing to come over 1,000 miles away to our shop, we came up with an idea. Why don't you try a bunch of different exhausts and document your journey? He agreed and we booked a couple of days for Jay to visit our shop and experience 5 different exhaust configurations on his 996. 

Jay described his desires for an exhaust system. Like many other Porsche owners, he wanted something refined but with a nice bump in sound and tone. He didn't want drone or anything overkill. Sort of an OEM+ type exhaust. At Flat 6 Motorsports, we offer over 20 different exhaust manufacturers from all around the world making it easy to hand select a few options that meet the criteria. We have a rich experience with installing, testing and gathering customer feedback on a variety of exhaust set ups. 

The Exhaust Systems & Key Data

Jay also decided for entertainment purposes he would like to showcase a muffler bypass system, so we added that to the list of exhaust configurations for his testing.

Project 996 Carrera - MORE COMING SOON!

Flat 6 Motorsports is undertaking a full build project on a 996 Carrera. We have a few episodes up on our YouTube Channel but have been in a holding pattern with custom pistons. We should have more episodes up in the coming weeks when we rebuild the motor and convert it from a 3.6L with knock to a 3.8L with all the right bits. We'll be doing a complete restoration of the car and adding some street focused modifications.
