A real work of art (I had it on display in the living room before I installed it) and it fit perfectly. Fabspeed manufactures a high quality product. I love it. Getting rid of that stock cat was the best thing I ever did to my car. At the same time I installed a high flow air induction system and what a difference this has made to the power and sound of my 993. I can't wait to get a set MaxFlo mufflers. I highly recommend this upgrade.
I own a 97 993 C2S which I truly love. It’s not my first 911, but it may be my last. I had always wanted to have a little more “Porsche Sound” from this beauty. Also, truth be told, there were some engine performsnce quirks I could not explain. My current mechanic recommended a few changes which has totally changed my 993’s performance. Living in Florida, we don’t have DEQ requirements therefore, I chose to remove the CAT and installed a beautiful set of pipes fabricated at FABSPEED (a frequent Pano advertiser). I chose the model without the CAT inserts. The quality of the pipes and welding is immediately recognizable. And they bolted up to my existing 993 sport exhaust. I was somewhat anxious, because I didn’t want a “too loud” sound that my wife would hate. At the same time I sent my ECU computer to a German speed shop (FVD Brombacher), to have it optimized. One day over, one day in processing, and one day back. Easy peasy. The final result of both modifications is nothing short of miraculous. The 993’s new sound is perfect, Not too loud, but commands serious respect. When “power on" shifting and downshifting, she actually spits a little like a cup car. Under speed, cockpit noise is very minimal. And most importantly, my wife loves the change. I’ve never had so many “thumbs-up” from fellow drivers in traffic. The computer reprogramming was also a total success. She shifts much smoother, idles much better, has seriously improved drivability, and accelerates like a monster.
