The stainless backbox with no name for sale

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

This stainless backbox was fitted to my SC when I bought her a couple of years ago. Best guess says it's been on the car between 8-10 years. It does give a throaty burble and I have a dyno read out from when it was fitted showing 214bhp. Whilst that can't be substantiated, since fitting a new Dansk stainless 1-in-1-out backbox, the car is quieter and fractionally slower than when the mystery box was fitted.

I've no idea what it's worth.

Offers... and buyer collects.

Guys... thanks for the advice. Jevvy, thanks for pointing out my Forum faux pas with not listing a price... apologies to all concerned :homersimpson:

Given that three of you knowledgeable gents have put Turbo Thomas in the frame, I shall do some investigating.

Thanks :bowdown:

Drop him an email with a picture, I'm sure Rich would be able to identify his handiwork.

 

Question is why did you put a Dansk on instead of keeping this?

GaryH and Dr Rock... spot on.

Steffi is my 'purist' 911, so I want a standard 'zorst. I get all the lovely mellifluous 911 sounds instead of just exhaust rumble.

Wolfi the '64 has half a straight-through exhaust system, so I have two opposing Porsche sounds to enjoy :ani_nerd:

1-in 1-out shouldn't drone. That will be a good deal lighter than a dansk.

My TT 1 in 1 out was as heavy as the Dansk 2 in 1 out I have now, which doesn't need earplugs. :twocents:

Looks like early Turbo Thomas to me, reckon you should start at around £350 +p/p

have a word Nige! it's not new - £350+ is steep for an 8yr old back box.

 

I've just had a look on the TT website - his prices have gone up a fair chunk since I last looked
