    PSE (Porsche Sport Exhaust) Install


    Covers all Carrera, and GT3 cars Removal -- 1. You will need to lift the car high enough that you can safely get underneath (you do not need to remove the rear wheels on most cars but most folks find it easier with the rear wheels off). 2. Loosen the 2 bolts (each side) on the sleeve that connects to the cats and then slide it towards the cat. (You might want to spray these nuts with...

     

     

    Could I know the parts number of the 3 bolts that hold the muffler mounting bracket?

    I'm going to remove the muffler so, I'd like to replace the bolts.

     

    I would appreciate your help.

    Good point. I still have this C4s hood assembly like you show (Got that time from wicked motorsports )  , and have not thought about trying this again after switching my car from a C2 coupe to a C4 cab.

     

    I can double-check dimensions of the lifting mech interfaces if this helps.   Besides that, as loren said, a lot needs to be changed to make this conversion happen.

    I also considered to alter the hood , to fit the strip to NB ( cutting and some fiberglass re-processing of the upper edge facing the strip). 

     

    Yes, please!

     

    I think the efficient way is the trimming C2's engine lid and put on the center reflector.

    Is the width size same?

     

    I'm going to meet the specialist and we will decide which mod would be better for this converson.

    The C4S rear bumper is also different will not likely fit your car without modification - because your car is a narrow wheelbase car and C4S is a wide body (like the Turbo).

    The taillights are also different and like the bumper may not fit in your narrow body car.

     

    In my opinion this is going to be an expense conversion if you want to do it right.

     

    ps. I personally would never buy from LA Dismantler - too many horror stories from those that have.

     

    I see.Thank you for the tip.

    The C4S engine lid would be modified to fit NB by a custom body specialist.

    So, the tail light and rear bumper would be used the existing one.

    Factory engine lids are not fiberglass.

    The coupe version is different from the cabriolet version. As are the mounting hinges.

    The rear spoiler drive mechanism for the C4S is also different

    The C4S rear bumper is also different will not likely fit your car without modification - because your car is a narrow wheelbase car and C4S is a wide body (like the Turbo).

    If the rear spoiler drive mechanism is different, do I also need to get C4S's drive mechanism?

    I am trying to find information about an engine 996 engine hood design change. I have a 02 C2 , and want to have the classic reflector strip between the rear lights  on the hood as on the C4S. I thought about a sticker solution , but which seemed ugly. Then I thought to take a factory CS4 hood - which I hoped to swap easily (...just bolts...30 min or so...). Got a grey OEM unit from a 03 CS4 on ebay (w/o spending a fortune as most sellers ask for) , and hoped a paint job is all I would need....

    The hood featured quite a few changes in design (the whole thing is from  fiber glass (vs. steel)), and the clearance to the body panels is still there, yet noticeable smaller. The latter may workable (Fiberglass base could be made slightly narrower before getting it painted....) . However, where I am stuck is that the hood seems a few cm longer, and does not fit due to contact with bumper. My impression is that  I need at least a different bumper as well as rear lights. My question would be, whether sb. tried this type of conversion before/whether this is possible at all w/o major body change. Attaching 2 pix with both hoods on my car...

    Have you tried the conversion with C4/turbo coupe engine lid?
