    Hmmm, what difference would heavy upper and lower caps make to the exhaust tone do you think? :-?

    Never tried different caps, but the Monza dual tip exhaust had a very warm and mellow (throaty?) tone that would make most people in the Porsche community jealous! Kinda like the difference between a flugel and a trumpet.

    Oooooops! Wrong forum.................

    I had heavy caps on the 914 - Hub Caps in the winter. Fuchs rims with the P7 radials in the summer.

    I did NOT go to Porsche with any questions first...........

    I too had polished Fuchs alloys with P6 Pirellis. And when advice was needed, I went to my local "motorhead" who was (and is) a genius on all auto related issues.
