Why We Choose HJS Catalytic Converters:
HJS German imported catalytic converters are made from some of the highest grade materials you can find in a catalytic converter. This yields high performance gains and longevity so it wont deteriorate over time like lower grade catalytic converters. These catalytic converters flow up to 93-95% of a straight pipe in most applications. The benefit is that you get the "straight pipe sound" while still being able to provide enough emissions scrubbing to prevent a check engine light.
Complete high-performance exhaust & intake solution for the 997 Carrera; includes Maxflo Performance Exhaust, Sport Catalytic Converter or Catbypass X-Pipe, Performance Headers, Competition Intake, Fabspeed ECU Tune & Deluxe Quad Style Tips.
Fabspeed's 997 Carrera Performance Package replaces the restrictive OEM mufflers and factory cats with high-performance mufflers and 200-cell HJS Sportcats or Catbypass pipes 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 Fabspeed ECU Tune which re-maps the timing, air-fuel ratios, and more in order to take full advantage of the upgraded components.

I owned a 997.1 Carrera S, and recently had work done at Carls Place with the crew of the 900 Series Porsche show. Engine required a rebuild, which was done properly, and it was fnished with the Fabspeed performance package. There is a significant change in this engine performance, and the Fabspeed upgrade was perhaps the best way to finish an outstanding job done by these guys. The performance and sound of this engine now is nothing like it was before. Even my wife smiles now when She hears the car going through its paces!!! I'm a happy customer, and highly recommend this upgrade with the ECU re-mapping.
You guys totally rock!! Alan, my master VW tech with your help, just finished completing the installation of the FABSPEED Performance Package with competition intake and your ECU programing and I LOVE MY NEW CAR! The performance, sound and craftsmanship is nothing less than spectacular! I can't stop smiling while banging through the gears of a totally different car. Even though I purchased a 2006 997 Cab S w/ 10K miles, your products make this vehicle stand tall and are well worth every penny!!! Thank you for getting the chip turned around within 48 hours so I can enjoy the car this weekend. I will refer you to all my clients!!!
Got the stainless exhaust package and ECU installed and they're great! I've been thinking about a GT3, but with a 50-plus horsepower jump in my C4S, this is about as fast as I need to go. The guys in the shop couldn't stop talking about the quality of the exhaust system… the perfect fit of the header flanges… the equal length primary pipes… the beautiful merge collectors, and on and on. It's nice to have a product that needs no excuses. Thanks again!
Just installed your Performance Package on my 997. I have noticed a big difference in overall performance. Every time I have called your company I have been treated professionally and promptly. It’s great that there are companies like yours who do it the right way, the USA way! Again thank you and continued success in all your endeavors.
