Vehicle Information: Model: 911 targa; Year: 1987; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 48000;

I have two questions: the VIN plate on the inside of the drivers doorstates that my car was built in January 1988 but my the original salesrecord states I have a 1987 targa- which is it, a 1987 or a 1988? Secondquestion: I am considering changing the exhaust system and adding a chipin the computer to boost performance; am I going to get noticeableimprovement in performance overall, am I going to get a noticeableimprovement from an exhaust system without the need for a chip, and whattype of modified exhaust system is best for my car ( B&B, etc,)? Andlast, but not least, do these modifications decrease the value of my carsince it is currently totally stock?
