After 3 M3s, beginning with a new E30 back in the day I fell in love with a 993 C4. After many good years together she gave her life to me a few weeks ago. I think the deer did not make it, either.

I almost pulled the trigger on an 997 C4s, but needed a 4dr. M-monster because of the Mrs. I bought a one owner M-monster a couple of weeks ago. I am interested in an exhaust that is not too loud like the super cups I had on the pcar. It must be easily switchable before the mandatory 2 year inspection, also. My pcar was failed due to excessive noise at one time, so I would switch under 10 minutes and go back to the super cups. Are there mufflers that can be clamped off and on? I have searched the issue, but have been unable to get an answer. I see the OEM muffler would have to be cut, but I suppose I could have it modified so it can slip back on rather than being welded back on.

Also, I had a front scrape bar on my 993. Is there anything on the market for the M-monster? In case I lower her an inch or so.....:haha:
Thanks.

How's your budget??? AgencyPower makes an electronically controlled exhaust system that looks like it might fit what you need. Modulated with the push of a button, no need to creep under your car and unclamp your mufflers (welding is the right way to install a muffler anyway).

Thank you. AgencyPower looks interesting, but not that interesting at 3k. Any other ideas? My pcar had no problem passing with Fabspeeds. I guess I have to find someone in Portland with a M-monster and aftermarket exhaust who passed DEQ.

I guess I don't understand why mufflers are causing you to fail...in Oregon, do they do a db test at inspection? Sounds like the real solution to your problem is to become friendly with a garage who will look the other way. How many annoying Harley's whiz by with gaudy, unbelievably loud strait pipes? Their exhausts are louder than the loudest setup we can get.

We have to pass a noise test and emissions. :( It was easy with pcar - couple of clamps and screws and I was done.
