We love a good exhaust hack here at CT, and this is a pretty damn good one. It’s known as the ‘Gundo Hack’, and involves welding in a small pipe between the inlet and outlet pipes of the standard exhaust system, effectively bypassing the fun-killing, sound-deadening muffler box.
It apparently mimics the sports exhaust option the 996s originally had, and if you listen to the sound comparison above, you’ll see just how much difference it makes. Not bad for £200 of work, right?
The only downside is that it’s like having an active exhaust permanently stuck in the obnoxiously loud position, which could get irritating if you did this work to a car you daily.
Could you put up with the extra droning, knowing your back road hoons will have a much better soundtrack?
