Fabspeed releases Porsche 981 Boxster S race and sport exhaust + headers. Weight savings & power gains - Pics, specs, and vid
Fabspeed as usual has quickly released exhaust pieces for a new Porsche model in this case the new 981 Boxster. Fabspeed points out restrictions in the factory Porsche exhaust for the 981 Boxster in the video below which was not designed for maximum performance. The 991 has the exact same 3.4 liter motor but with a more aggressive tune and less restrictive exhaust making the exhaust system a great place to pick up power for the 981.
Fabspeed provided all the details except dyno graphs. Obviously these pieces will all pick up power but we would like to know exactly how much. Fabspeed usually includes dynographs so we are surprised they did not this time around.
The rear section / muffler of the exhaust is a good place to save weight. The standard Maxflo muffler from Fabspeed saves 10 pounds. The race exhaust saves 15.9 pounds but obviously is much louder. Neither will trigger a check engine light. The race retails for $1,795 and the Maxflo retails for $1,9995.
Fabspeed offers two header options, race and sport. The race headers do not include catalytic converters and will trigger a CEL (check engine light). The sport headers have 200 cell cats. The sport headers are more expensive due to the catalytic converters and retail for $2,895. The race headers are $2,095 and also save 10 pounds from the rear of the car.
