Single tailpipe v sports tailpipes

Recommended Posts

Love the surprisingly loud, slightly raspy sound of the single tailpipe on my 2.7 981, but don't love the look.


If I swap to the OEM sports tailpipe, will I notice a difference sound-wise? I don't really want it to change too much - certainly wouldn't want it to be quieter. 


By the way, I'm not into spending two grand on a PSE, and I don't really want to get into aftermarket exhaust systems just yet - this is really just about improving the aesthetic without massively changing the sound.


Any thoughts/experience appreciated...

i'd be really surprised if "just" a set of twin Sports tailpipes made any real difference to the sound; either way......




This is pretty much what I thought. I’m actually more bothered about losing sound rather than adding it. On balance, I’d rather live with look and keep the noise - I’m in the car more often than I am looking at it I guess...


Suppose the only way to know is to do it. Can always reverse it if I’m not happy

you should consider the Carnewal GT system, OEM look and quality with the inner reworked and secondary cats deleted. It sounds amazing, lets it breath a little better not anywhere as expensive as a PSE / High quality aftermarket. I'm over the moon with mine!


If you just change the tips it will change the note slightly but it won't be night and day, i don't think it would be that noticeable from inside the cabin but definitely from outside.

Hi Greenace, did you ever do anything about your tail pipe as I am of the same opinion as yourself ie 

Don't like the "look" but don't really want to increase the noise. If you did change it, what did you go for & was it any noiser.


Many thanks
