Big North Texas Howdy,
I'm looking for someone in the DFW area with an aftermarket exhaust system on their cayman. I think I want a Borla system but would like to hear it in person. Worried about drone & excessive cabin noise. Anyone out there want to show off their ride?

I think i spoke too soon. Right after posting I saw a fabspeed exhaust that was just too good to pass up on. Guess I'll find out how they sound soon enough.
thanks anyway

I've been running the Fabspeed catback on my '08 S for several months; just added the headers (w/sport cats) a couple of weeks ago.

There is some resonance in the 2400-3000rpm range but only when adding throttle; unloaded/cruising it is quiet. That being said, I don't spend much time in that range...most of my hiway driving stays in the 3200-3800rpm range where it is fairly subdued.

On the track with windows down & at WOT it sounds like a baby GT-3 Cup car to me. Of course maybe that's wishful thinking but hey-it works for me!!!
On the other hand maybe FriscoCayman can give you some feedback on how it sounds since he keeps passing me on track. :rolleyes::)

Like all things audio...sound is subjective; as my Turbos & 968's are substantially louder I'm fairly tolerant at this point. ;)

BTW; surprisingly the headers had very little impact on volume; just a slightly deeper tone...I like!!! :D

I always have it at the Dealership during the week; feel free to stop by for a listen if you're in the area. Just give me a heads up so I can be sure I'm not in meetings...

I'm also interested in hearing from DFW people that have an aftermarket exhaust. Send me a PM if you'd be willing to let me hear yours in person.

Hope to have mine installed next week. I'm on the westside of Fort Worth. I'm putting on a Fabspeed catback. Let me know if you want to check it out.

I have Milltek. Would love to listen to a Fabspeed or Borla.

Perhaps we can meet at one of the "Car And Coffee" shows in Plano. Would be great to see more Caymans there. :)

Would be very interested in hearing it. Send me a PM once you get it installed.

Do you know when the next one is? Would like to hear the Milltek as well.

Someone be sure to post when the next GTG is. I will be looking for a little road trip soon and will probably head in your direction to see some old college friends. I have B&B headers and exhaust. Would love to hear some other setups.

Kim,

It was very nice to speak with you at Cars and Coffee yesterday. I am still trying to get warm, but I really enjoyed the event. I will try to make the next one if it is above 32 degrees:eek:
