Help Identifying After Market Exhaust - 3 exhaust pipes - - 911 SC 3.0 1983

Recommended Posts

HI,

I am looking at buying a 1983 3.0 SC. It has an aftermarket exhaust with three exhaust pipes ??

There is one in the usual place on the left hand side of the car (as you look at the car from the back) and two centre exhaust pipes.

All three work and exhaust gases come out.

The guy showed me two metal caps he puts over the middle pair when using the car "gently" on the road.

I have never seen this before !

Any idea what type of exhaust this might be.

Imagine these 2 combined into one exhaust ??

There are a few off-the-shelf versions of what you describe or of course it could be home brewed - a photo should help to identify.

Pictures needed, but it does sound like what we generically call a "rally" exhaust with two centre "cappable" exits for the racous days. Often a good compromise where one doesn't want too loud a system all the time....

IMHO - it's these are the best sounding systems. It still sounds like an early 911, but grants you the opportunity to be a real open piped thug too.  I'm not a fan of the deep, V8 sounding ones.

Thanks for replies - photos now attached - it was quite difficult getting all three pipes in

 

And - can I really just cap the ends of the double exhausts with the supplied caps and run like that if required ?

Looks like a diy mod adding the two center pipes to a std silencer. From the pics it does not look like it was opened up an internally modified.

Yes, you can run OK with the center pipes capped.
