Which exhaust system

I know this has been up before, but I`ll choose exhaust system for my-74 911 3.2, and the question is should I go with the SSI or Maxflow systems. Is there any dynosheets available for these systems? Any other suggestions, otherwise the 3.2 is standard.

I personally like the SSI. It's like bolting jewelry under your car, and I don't believe anything beats its performance for small and mid-displacement 911's. Jack O. seems to like another system, perhaps because it has better flow characteristics for his 3.6 liter fire-breathing monster. I'd guess that your stock 3.2 would do just fine with the SSI's.

I just put SSI's on with a Dansk 2 in 1 out muffler. It made a big difference with a smooth torque curve and better throttle response. And it sounds great. IMO, its the best bolt on upgrade avaliable. A little pricey though.

SSI's and a Dansk muffler are assets on any car.

If this board had a FAQ, the answer to the perpetual exhaust question should be at the top of the list.

SSI's are the way to go.
Season to taste with a muffler of your choice, but be aware of quality, fitment, noise and resonance issues between brands. 2/1 Dansk (as recommended by SSI themselves) has given me absolutely no regrets.

SSI's are definitely the winner on build quality, by everything I've heard. But I was under the impression that the benefits of going to SSI's aren't as great on the 3.2 motor as the 3.0-and-smaller ones.

I'm no expert on exhaust, but isn't the hot ticket for the Carrera to go with the Euro pre-muffler, a gutted stock (or sport) muffler, and a modified DME chip? If my memory is working, doesn't this give you SSI-level performance, but without the $1500+ price tag?

i would stay clear of H & S unless you like expensive, noisey systems (not withstanding their high quality).

as jack said, and what i have is a euro premuff, and sport muff.

Thanks Bill, but no better side pictures. However the rear is to low and front to high, but that will be corrected after Ive done the brakes.

Color is Riviera blue, it looks a little darker in garage, due to poor light.

Maxflow, Im not sure name is correct. The system is sold by Design911 in UK, at approx GBP 1.000.

No RUF or Strosek exhaust on the BBS??
