  1. These cars are very sensitive to over fill. I would drain a very little bit of oil and see what happens. Even a slight overfill is going to tax your AOS a lot more than a good level. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. If you're doing the water pump you may as well add a low temp thermostat if you haven't already installed one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. To piggyback onto what JFP said, I did this on my '99 3.4 996. However, I gently polished the piston exterior with Jewelers rouge prior to install to gild the lily. Instant idle OP improvement. And mine was actually fine before. Best $20 you'll spend on the car. Especially for warm ambient temps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. This County Mountie is feeling the love. [emoji41][emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Moving to synthetic media in the filter affords a significant increase in flow capability. So, Fram Ultra, Royal Purple, Purolator BOSS, Amsoil EaO, Napa Platinum, & Wix XP provide full synthetic glass-fiber media that will greatly out flow the std cellulose media of the Napa Gold, Mobil-1, Bosch Distance Plus, Puro PureOne, K&N, etc. Just FYI. Great thread on this mod, btw. As a data point, I'm currently running a Bosch D+ on my LN screw on adapter and can report back on the condition of the media if you want (it's your thread).

  6. I agree with Jeff. Also, if metal byproducts are that much of an issue, you really need to step up to an LN screw-on filter adapter (with a quality screw on filter like a Napa Platinum, Fram Ultra, Royal Purple, etc) and a full-circle FilterMag setup (two filter mags) along with very short oil change intervals. However, I'm still kinda alarmed. What did you find was causing the metal to be present in the oil?
  7. Also consider using StaBil 360 Marine. It has about 4 times the dosage of water remover as the std 360. I would treat the tank heavily. Do you have an inspection camera you can shove into the chambers? Harbor freight even has them now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Exactly what I suspected. Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. JFP, what is your opinion of those stiffening transmission mount inserts? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. JFP, do you recall the name of the guy/Company who modifies factory mufflers, does the "gundo" mod properly, and then can recoat them in ceramic? I can't recall the name off the top of my head. Sent from my SPH-L720T using Tapatalk
  11. N Spec Michelin Pilot Super Sports are great on my 99 911 C2 Cab. Conti has a new extreme contact model as well. Not sure if it's N rated. I bought through tire track and they have been excellent. I'm very pleased. Sent from my SPH-L720T using Tapatalk
  12. Replacement strut top plate assembly came in from Pelican two days early. YES! The top stud pressed out with a vice without issue. Now for some sleeve retaining compound and it goes back in. Sent from my SPH-L720T using Tapatalk
  13. Drilled out from the top, starting with a small pilot bit. Ended with an 8mm drift punch that knocked the rest of it out of the bottom. If the new stud is super difficult to remove from the new top plate assembly, I'll grab some grade-8 M8 bolts with a double stack of heat treated washers to use on the bottom, paired with the factory nut on the top. VOY-LUH. Thank you to everybody who had posted thus far. I greatly appreciate your input and all of it was taken into consideration, I assure you. I'll post final pictures when I get the bolt/stud reinstalled. Sent from my SPH-L720T using Tapatalk
  14. Here is the part on order with the studs. Sent from my SPH-L720T using Tapatalk
  15. Noted and thank you. I'm going to leave the others at 30 until the suspension gets redone as the troubled nut seemed wonky from the start. Regardless, thank you for the correct values. Sent from my SPH-L720T using Tapatalk
