    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2014

    Thank you very much! Your exhaust made my Porsche sound like a proper Porsche flat 6 should sound. Also I did the install myself in my garage and the fitment is great, and the hardware you supplied was top notch. Thanks again.

    Thanks a lot for the quick shipping. I placed the order and everything showed up at my door in less than 24 hours!(Btw I really appreciate that you guys ship via international priority and also marked the value as $40) Amazing! I installed the cat bypass for the 996 last night and it sounds great. Fitment was pretty close to spot on as well. I will definately order from you guys again and will recommend you to all my friends



DRIVING POV: Porsche 996 Carrera with Sport Headers, Maxflo Exhaust, Catbypass X-Pipe (01:12)
Fabspeed's 996 Carrera Performance Package replaces the restrictive OEM mufflers and factory cats with high-performance mufflers and 200-cell HJS Sportcats (this particular car opted for a catless variant instead) for a deeper, throatier exhaust note and improved power and throttle response. The included Performance Headers replace the restrictive factory headers and with high-flowing motorsport headers. Lastly, the restrictive factory airbox is replaced by Fabspeed's Carbon Fiber Competition Intake System which increases the cold air flow into the engine for better power and sound. All of these upgrades are then optimized by the EVOMSit ECU Tune which re-maps the timing, air-fuel ratios, and more in order to take full advantage of the upgraded components. INCLUDES: 996 Carrera Maxflo Performance Mufflers w/ Deluxe Quad-Style Tips 996 Carrera Performance Headers 996 Carrera Sportcat X-Pipe w/ 200-cell HJS Sport Catalytic Converters 996 Carrera Carbon Fiber Competition Intake System 996 Carrera EVOMSit ECU Tune All components are available here: http://www.fabspeed.com/996-1999-2004/

Product Description

Dramatically improve mid/high end power by replacing the catalytic converters with a free-flowing x-pipe while adding aggressive sports car sound and throttle response; recommended for track and off-road use only.                                     

NOTE: The Catbypass X-Pipe provides dramatic power increases in the mid to high end of the RPM range.  Street drivers may notice a small torque loss at low RPM's, which is why we recommend the Sportcat X-Pipe for street applications.  Please also bear in mind that this system does not include catalytic converters, so the Check Engine Light (CEL) will most likely be triggered. This is not an indication of any actual issue with the engine, and does not prevent normal vehicle operation. 

FEATURES:

  • Fits all Porsche 996 Carrera vehicles 1998-2004
  • Improves horsepower and torque by 33 whp and 41 ft-lbs
  • Saves 25 lbs from the rear of the vehicle
  • Recomended for track and off-road use only
  • Designed for maximum power and throttle response
  • Adds an aggressive exhaust tone
  • Used by many Rolex Grand Am race teams as well as PCA/POC and HPDE drivers
  • Simple DIY bolt-on installation and removal for vehicles that are used both on and off the track
  • All Fabspeed performance products are backed by the Fabspeed Lifetime Warranty
