This is the BEST money that I have ever spent! Hands Down…
Well first things first, I encountered some little problems during the install. Scott did an awesome job on the install article he posted on his web site: http://www.softronictuning.com/installation/. The article is on the 3.4 so I had to deviate and modified it to fit the 2.7. I cut the slit in the large vacuum hose by accident. Try not to do this if you can help it.
There is enough room to fight the hose, to get it off... 5 Comments
It was January 2007. I had my Cayman S for four short months and I was about to break a promise I'd made to myself. A friend had asked me if I'd be willing to install a Borla exhaust system on my Cayman and write up an article on what I thought. At first I declined. I really didn't have the money to spend on something like this, and I had promised myself I wouldn't start down the slippery slope of vehicle modifications with my Cayman S, a road I'd been down before with poor results. I was sort... 30 Comments

For me, it was tourist delivery that made it necessary for my front bumper to be drilled. This wouldn't be so bad if they didn't just blow screws into the plastic, but that's what they do, and the tension from those screws distorts the plastic around the hole into a volcano like head. Lucky for us, there are Bumper... 12 Comments

ATTENTION: After 25,000 miles with this product on my car I have experienced a serious problem with my original exhaust components. Please see this thread for more information. Based on these developements, I advise the addition of a stress relieving flex joint to the downpipes of this system.
You should see some of the looks I get when I tell people that I've changed the exhaust system on my two year old Porsche seven times since I bought it. I... 49 Comments
This is just a summary of what consolidated, FT and L8Apx have done. :thanks:

I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m referring of course to my first two weeks in my Cayman S. As one of the few Americans that had checked the ‘European Delivery’ option box, I had the rare opportunity to explore the limits of my new Porsche without the fear of legal complications. That’s right…. I was on the German autobahn, the A-31 to be exact, and I had just passed one of those nifty ‘No Speed Limit’ signs. I leaned into the throttle and let the speedometer climb.
