One of our sponsors - Capristo - would like to test their new exhaust for the 2009+ Cayman on a member's car in the U.S. The member must be willing to author an article on the system and the installation including independent before and after dyno tests. You've seen some of Gator Bite's fine exhaust articles, now is your chance (He doesn't have a 2009+) to shine with an article of your own AND get a smoking deal on the Capristo system for your car.

If you are interested please let me know!

Well it turns out we still need a volunteer, and a piece of information I didn't have above is that the car MUST BE A 6 SPEED. While the system will fit either a 6speed or PDK car, Capristo wants the dyno to be done on a 6 speed car to avoid any dyno issues and to be able to provide a consistent and accurate dyno chart. Our initial volunteer unforutnately had a PDK and Capristo has asked for another volunteer instead with a 6 speed.

If you are interested in getting a free* full $5000+ Capristo exhaust system for your 2009 or 2010 Cayman or Boxster with a 6 speed please let me know and I'll get the ball rolling.

Thanks in advance!

*There is a small charge for the shipping/import duties, etc. and the dyno tests are on your own dime, but no charge for the sytem itself provided you do the dyno tests and author the article with photos of the installation and testing.

Well we just had a member decline due to their dealership being non mod friendly, and another member volunteered but cannot do the article until February and Capristo would like to see the article done sooner than that.

I find it funny that people were criticizing Capristo for not having independent dyno results in another topic thread and when they graciously pony up a $5000+ system for a member to do it, we can't find a single member to take them up on their offer!!

Wow, I'm floored... I knew 2009 and 2010 models were scarce but I didn't know they were this scarce... :hilarious:

Wow, that is an amazing deal. Too bad I 1) have a PDK and 2) already got the Borla. :)

K-Man: PM right back at you. :)

Pedsurg has volunteered and Capristo is in process of sending him a system for testing. If you have any questions about the system before he does the install and writes the article please ask them NOW so we can put them on a tick list to address.

Thanks!

I cant really find the time to do much article writing. Can do a basic one but nothing as good as Gators past work. I was not going to do any Dynos of just the exhaust system by itself this time around, but I could arrange a before and after Dyno around Jan after the run in period with this system and 2010 car if some of my install and Dyno costs are covered.
What I was going to do was do all my mods all at once and not really bother with the Dyno as I pretty well already well dont need to go on the discovery trail this time around. This time I am going to use a exhaust specialist for the install who just happens to have an in house Dyno.

I have already ordered the system which will turn up BEFORE the car does.

K-Man S, why don't you ask Capristo if they'd be interested in doing a comparo with the 6-spd and PDK? There are a number of PDK owners, as you've noted. Mine does happen to be stock '09 S so it would be a "clean" evaluation.

Capristo has been in touch and system is on the way. I'm eager to hear from folk re questions they might have this system and its installation. I'm in the process of reading through all of the exhaust installation articles. Your thoughts on these articles, pro and con, would be appreciated.
