  1. I'm new to this forum and own a 01 996 c4 cabrio triptronic and was looking for a dyi guide on the engine mount replacement. do you know where I can look? Thanks


  2. What about other aftermarket alternatives that maintains or improves the inital bite while preferably reducing dust? Anybody with any experience? Thanks, Bjarne
  3. What is the OEM brake pad compound the 2010 3,8 without PCCB brakes? Is it Pagid Yellow RS19? Thanks, Bjarne
  4. Yes, it snapped right off close to the rigid part at the gearbox end. Sad it was not the plastic connection, really, as I had a replacement 997 shifiting mechanism ready for installation.
  5. Snapped my shift cable changing from 3rd to 4th while trying to keep a 997S gen2 PDK behind me this week-end. Had the cable not snapped during my gearchange, I think I might have approached the PDK shifting speed . Anyway, does anybody have a writeup for changing the shifting cable? I have removed the center console by following the B&M short shifter installation guide. Any input appreciated. Thanks, Bjarne
  6. Puuuh, That seems like a lot of work! I'll think I'll strart with the engine mounts first and hopefully that will cure the problems :-) Thanks! Bjarne
  7. :oops: Do you mean that the x51 oil pan on its own will improve the situation, but not cure it competely? (Sorry if I go on here, just want to make sure I understand you correctly) :thumbup:
  8. I guess machining the cyl head a much bigger job than I am prepared to take on. If I understand you correct adding the x51 oil pan on its own will not reduce oil starvation issues on my 3,4? Should I get the LN enginnering deep sump kit instead? Thanks, Bjarne
  9. Hi, I have a 1998 996 C2 6-speed that shifts sideways when letting go of the accellerator after a full throttle acceleration. The car milage is approx 40 000. I have ordered new RS engine mounts, but wonder if I should also change the transmission mount just to be sure. Anybody know the transmission mount part no? Is changing the transmission mount a DIY job?? Thanks, Bjarne
  10. I have a 1998 996C2 3,4 with the following chassis upgrades: -PSS10 coilovers -GT3 sways I use GT3 street wheel alignments. To avoid the added G forces possible with these upgrades leading to oil starvation I have ordered an x51 oil pan from Suncoast. However, I've just read that LNengineering claims that the x51 oil pan does not improve the situation unless the additional x51 oil pump and suction pipes are also used. Is this really so, or is LNenginnering making a case for their own deep sump kit? Have anybody installed the addtional X51 parts: Pump: 996.107.980.00 Suction Pipe: 99610798402 ? Thanks, Bjarne
  11. I want to use GT3 sway bars on my 1998 996 C2 with PSS10 coilovers. The cheapest front adjustable drop links I have found is DesignTek, available at £46,50 from Design911: http://www.design911.com/Porsche/996...-cmo110-ct345/ Do you need new droplinks both front and rear? Where can reasonably priced rear droplinks be obtained? Thanks, Bjarne
  12. I've just received my new FVD stainless steel header purchased on ebay. :) Unfortunately, there seems to be a small crack about an inch long in one of the downpipes. :( Does anyone have any experience with welding SS headers? Can this be performed so that the repair lasts, considering that the header may reach temperatures making it glow yellow during hard driving? Thanks, Bjarne
  13. I have 265/35- 18, for which 285/30-18 is a Porsche approved alternative. Tire height is a percentage of its width, hence two "tire heights" in addition to the rim size will give total wheel/tire diameter. The circumference is PI (~3,14) times the diameter. The circumference of the 265/35 should be: PI * (2 * 26,5 cm * 35% + 18" * 2,54 cm) = 201,91 cm The circumference of the 285/30 should be: PI * (2* 28,5 cm * 30% + 18" * 2,54 cm) = 197,35 cm Hence replacing the 265/35-18 with 285/30-18 will reduce rolling distance by approx 2,3%.
  14. Yes, the wider rears will give more understeer, that what I wanted to counter-act with the adjustable sways. The wider tires will provide more lateral grip, and thereby allow slightly higher corner exit speeds. I do not think the weight difference will play make any measurable difference in how fast the car is or feels. If anything the slightly smaller tire circumference of the 285/30 compared to the 265/35 will make the car accellerate better! Anyway, have you got the M030 / GT3 Sways combo on your car?
