  1. I would start by comparing the alignment specs and ride heights (see below): Carrera GT3 A PSS9 (or H&R Coilovers for that matter) are coilover shocks that are completely adjustable (within a range). The X74 kit is very stiff shocks and springs and reenforcements for the stiffer components. Cars built before MY2002 do not have the additional chassis reinforcement needed for an X74 kit. My understanding is that you can go back and weld those components in but the factory does not recommend it. Both will lower your car more than RoW M030 Sport suspensi
  2. You can put coilovers on any Carrera. The GT3 sway bars may need to have mounts made. The Racers Group sells these as do a few other companies.
  3. Go to the TSB section and sort them by year. All of the 1998 and some of the 1999 TSBs were for updated parts. (Although they were doing a 3rd rev of coolant tanks as late as 2002) :lol:
  4. Would you like the TSB 0301 9142 Installation of Rear Speakers (dated 8-22-2003)? PM me with your email address and I'll send it to you.
  5. Not my pics and I can't remember who gave these to me (my apologies) ...
  6. If your package code (under your front hood) is M012 (Sport Design Package) then the color is C02 Metal Grey. This was a special lacquered color for MY98 on. I don't see it in touch up paint list... so you might have to have a shop mix it or replace the plastic parts that are badly scratched.
  7. A single clamp with one bolt (15 mm deep socket as I recall). When you reinstall them make sure that they are properly aligned with the bumper cover both left to right and vertically. On MY02 and newer the tip should stick out about 7 to 10 mm (when viewed from the side). And, the tip should clear the bumper outlet on top by 22 mm. Slightly tighten -- align -- fully tighten is the best sequence.
  8. They look like comfort seats to me (which are standard seat backs and electronic controls). Memory seats are a seperate option and standard seats only have electric backrest adjustment.
  9. Try emailing the author for a copy. Jim Pasha japasha@aol.com. I don't know the magazines rules on reprints or whether Jim can just send it to you. If you are still having problems finding it let me know and I'll make a copy for you.
  10. Gert has the number for the Tip shift knob above.
  11. I would say 5 to 7 hours labor at $100 to $120 per hour (for a good shop). Use the RoW Sport alignment specs here.
  12. I think so too. What type of seat? standard, comfort, sports or GT3? ;) Post a pic and I'll get you the instructions.
  13. 996 521 781 00 emblem (2 needed) 999 919 983 09 screw 3.5 x 25 (2 needed) This is not the same as the coat hook screw it is shorter (coat hook screw is 5.0 x 25).
  14. The mufflers are not the problem with changing the plugs -- the problem is the headers. Only two plugs are difficult to get to. Just plain a PITA. Older cars only need plugs every 30,000 and the newer cars (MY02 on) only get plugs every 60,000. I would not recommend taking the headers off to change the plugs -- that would take longer. Just make sure you have the right tools is the best advice I can give.
  15. MY99 to MY 01 use the same gear boxes. Only C2 vs. C4 are different.
  16. 235 will fit under all conditions that I have seen. Some 245s may rub a little at full lock but will likely be okay too. I assume you are talking stock wheel offsets.
  17. The blue and black cables have nothing to do with the shifters "tightness". They adjust the cable throw on the transmission. If you are having trouble getting into a gear move the black cable one notch at at time and then test. As msindni said the Blue cable is for reverse.
  18. Jimmy, I think you have Suncoast Porsche in Florida confused with Sunset Imports in Oregon. Sunset Imports in Oregon sells Porsche factory parts at cost plus a small handling charge. You can find them here
  19. It is part of the engine cooling circulation system. So, if it is leaking expect that your overflow tank will be a little low.
  20. Porsche does not take wheels in for trade. Some venders like Wheel Enhancement do. Their trade-in value will be based on the wheels condition (and whether they can repair it it and sell it as used). Your Turbo Look rear wheel is part number 993 362 140 04. The retail price is $679.80.
