Sports Cup exhaust system for Porsche 911 GT3/RS (997)
The Akrapovic aftermarket Sports Cup exhaust system is based on the Porsche Sports Cup rules, which means retaining the original exhaust manifold with integrated catalysts. We therefore developed a performance and weight optimized titanium end muffler with appropriate link pipes as the connecting piece to the manifold. This kind of construction reduces the weight by almost 21kg in comparison to the original exhaust system.
997 GT3 & RS Sports Cup Exhaust System Performance
The weight distribution of the vehicle is improved considerably, because of the weight reduction in the area behind the engine and the rear axle, which has a extremely positive effect on the handling. The limit range of the vehicle adjusts upwards and so a higher transverse acceleration is possible. The combination of improved power to weight ratio (through an increased efficiency of over 8bhp), torque progression by over 16Nm, and the positive effects in connection with driving dynamics enhance the performance of the GT3 distinctively. The sound in this configuration is somewhat below the sound of the original system with the opened exhaust cap.
