1996 993 Appearance, lowering, exhaust


Vehicle Information: Year: 1996; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 17,900;

I recently purchased a used 1996 C4S. The car looks identical to a twin Turbo except for the lack of a fixed rear spoiler as on the twin Turbo. Is that correct or are there other cosmetic differences? If so, what are they?Secondly, I would also like to lower the car to European bumper height. What springs do you recommend and what do you think the approximate cost would be? Does Porsche have a kit for this? I assume the car must be realigned both front and rear?Last question, Im thinking of changing the exhaust system (headers, mufflers, etc.) to obtain more HP. I understand that this could add something like 25-35 HP. Is that correct? Are there particular exhaust systems you would recommend to accomplish this as I want to keep the car California smog legal ? What do you think the cost of this project might be?
