I just wanna pipe in to represent the other perspective. As you said, the Tubi provided a nice burble at idle, a wonderfully zoomy character in over-run, and the great scream at high revs. If that's the case, my perspective on the exhaust would be...

1) If the neighbors hear you, they'll just be glad you're in a Porsche rather than a Harley. Your car is quieter (even with a Tubi) and you don't have timing issues that beg for someone to lend you a screwdriver.
2) The resonance at certain RPMs is just a reminder to drive the car in a spirited manner. A gentle poke on the shoulder to remind you that you might be able to go to work slowly on $5 worth of gas. And it might cost $6 if you have fun. But one could argue that the $6 is money better spent than the $5 would have been. And they're both a measly sum compared to what you paid for the car in the first place.

Whatever makes you happy, though.

Hi, Mdreiver. Points taken, thanks. As for 2, my concern was that I shouldn't be forced to rev higher, select a lower gear, etc. Another way of thinking of it is that I didn't think I should be punished by the car each time I wanted to simply cruise.

I know I'm not unusual in liking the Boxster for its versatility. It isn't too focused in any one area: it is well-mannered enough to be a daily driven street car, it is exhilarating when pushed to or near its limits, and it offers plenty of fun in-between its extremes. A flexible engine; always-linear brake response; excellent ergonomics; beautiful engine sounds; effective yet unimposing amenities... what's not to like?

Well, when I added the Tubi to my Boxster that mix, that balance, was greatly diminished.

I briefly considered the Porsche Sports Exhaust as an alternative, but decided it wouldn't give me the traits I liked best in the Tubi, and that I couldn't justify the expense.

As of today, I remain happy with the stock exhaust!

Best,

Snaxster
