  1. Perfect balance 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2016

    I purchased and installed the race headers last month and I could not be happier. I have these headers paired with the MaxFlo Sport exhaust and the car is absolutely perfect. When tooling around town, the car is not overly loud and does not drone like other vehicles I have been in. When you step on the little pedal it comes alive and has the most glorious sound that is not overbearing at all.

    Important note. You will want to space the rear O2 sensors (sensors that would be post catalytic converter), but do not space the front O2 sensors (pre-catalytic converter sensors). If you space both you will get a check engine light.

Product Description

Free-flowing headers without catalytic converters; designed for maximum power and exhaust flow for race and track applications.                                                                      


  • Fits all 986 Boxster / S vehicles 1997-2004
  • Increases power and improves throttle response
  • Saves weight from the rear of the vehicle compared to the full OEM exhaust
  • Constructed from equal-length T304 stainless steel C.N.C. mandrel-bent tubing for improved torque and equalized engine pulsing
  • F1 style merge collectors for maximum exhaust flow and better scavenging
  • Will work with stock muffler or any aftermarket cat-back exhaust system designed to fit like the OEM
  • Direct replacement for the OEM headers with no cutting or welding required
  • All Fabspeed performance products are backed by the Fabspeed Lifetime Warranty

NOTE: Optional 02 Spacers available to prevent the Check Engine Light from being triggered on 2000-2004 cars.

INSTALLATION NOTE: Slight modifications to the factory coolant line are required on vehicles equipped with a Tiptronic transmission - Flexible Stainless Steel hose can be purchased from a local autozone or speedshop to reroute the new line for proper clearance.  

INSTALLATION NOTE: To ensure proper header seal, after initial heat cycle, tighten all exhaust bolts to the OEM torque specs.
