Im about to purchase a 2004 996 TT. Ive had a 964 and a 996 previous but this will be my first 911 Turbo.  It is stock so what are your recommendations for upgrades?

Really depends on your planned usage (e.g., track, weekend fun, daily driver, etc.), but IMO, make sure it's up to snuff in stock form (i.e., maybe fresh coils and plugs, etc.), and then start with a software tune of the ECU.  If you don't mind exhaust drone, many owners do an exhaust next.  After that, the possibilities are pretty much limitless (or limited by how much you want to spend).  You'll love it!

Just my two cents coming from a 2002 911TT (also silver), it's a high-performing beast of a car at stock.  Mine came with a ECU tune but it made emissions fail (anything other than the stock flash makes it fail a checksum like validation) despite coming with a OBD II tool that was supposed to flash the car back and forth between stock and the tune.  Florida may be easier.  The most surprising thing though was when I took the tune off and went back to stock ECU I couldn't tell a difference -- the boost was the same, etc.  I can't say that I've tried every flash out there but I don't think you're going to get too much else out of it unless you start to spend on hardware to go with it (which is far from cheap).  To each their own but in my opinion is the stock car doesn't need much so maybe drive it a few months and see how you feel before investing in mods.  Again, just my two cents, I know someone's going to disagree and say modding their car was awesome.  In another state with less stringent checks you may be ok........

That looks familiar (yours is a convertible though which I'm a fan of).  Your plan sounds pretty smart to me.  There are also several outstanding members here who have TT's that will be able to help you when you need it, it's a good group.  The Mezger is a beast, try not to get addicted to boost 🙂

Lookin' good!!  Watch that front lip...you'll likely hit that a few times to start.  For me upgrading was a personal thing.  I enjoyed reading and talking to guys that know their stuff (Kevin, Kevin, Mark, etc.) and from there made a progression of upgrades.  Oh yeah, a triple black cab.  Enjoy and drive safe.

Nice pics!  Agree about the front lip, it's really really low.  It scraped just a little bit on the entering incline for my front driveway before I realized you have to pull in at an angle realllll slow 🙂

First order of business is to correct the top.  I need to replace the hydraulic cylinders.  Does anyone know the lengh of the hoses in 2004 996 TT cabriolet?  I need to send the proper set to exchange and that way I can open everthing up remove and replace,  close and reprogram one time.

 

Thanks
