  1. Sorry, must disagree, the LWF is a must! Makes a huge difference in motor spool up, quicker response AND less weight on the crank to boot. The little extra "chatter" when the clutch is not depressed is worth the rest of the experience. Also frees up power since you're not using necessary power to turn a heavy FW.

    DO IT!

  2. Bill, if you're just looking to tighten up the suspension a little as well as be a little lower, just go the HD route. The PSS9's are junk IMO. I have them on my car and am not impressed. The quality is not there anymore, the adjustments are a pain and hard to feel. For the same $$, you could go with JIC Cross brand and get a better product (for what I know), upper camber plates and be way ahead of the game. For half the $$ go with the HD's and H&R. You won't get as low as with the more adjustable suspension kis (9's or JIC), but it sounds like you just want to go for a nice safe ride on the w/e's, not tear up the track.

    Save your money for other mods, and a good alignment .......HD's

  3. I have a 1989 911 Cab Dark Blue Grey Int. with 26,000 miles ...all original and I will not be selling it. But, I am looking for another Porsche and have decided on a 993 1996 to 1998 C2S...talking to a guy in Tx. that has a 1997 993 C2S widebody with 21,700 miles...2nd owner since 2001 and he has driven it 730 miles per year...silver with grey Int. asking 49,000 for the car...car looks straight up and have checked it out on carfax...it has failed emissions or safety inspection at 20,948 and again at 21,063 then passed at 21,336, passed at 21,386, passed at 21,494 in 2005 then failed in 2006 with the same miles...can not belive the guys does not drive the car more than that, why have one..passed 2006 at 21,755. He says battery ...because he drives it very little..gets so low that there is a problem with ressetting the codes...anyway...The only thing I am not to sure of is the Tiptronic as all my other cars have been 5/6 speed man....I would appreciate any feedback on this model...another thing not very many of these cars to be found with low miles under 50,000. it seems.. Thanks for the help...Keith Moore

    If it weren't for the Tip, that would be a steal. Having said that, the asking price is probably right on. There have been quite a few trading hands lately for the mid $50k and with 30k miles +/-, so to pick up a C2S in the 40's, you won't go wrong......other than the effects of the auto tranny.

  4. My 96 993 C4 lower valve cover is leaking oil around the metal sleeve in the plastic housing. I tried to replace the gasket with no luck. I've heard you can upgrade to one piece aluminum valve covers. Anybody have any experience with them? Who makes a good set at a good price? Any help would be great, I'm tired of the blue smoke at red lights. Thanks.

    I hadn't had any problems with my VC's and they have been dry since I did the gaskets, so I can't help you with the aftermarket VC's. I would suggest though that if you still run your engine under tray, get rid of it. Thats what has warped your covers. They retain so much heat and just cook everything on the motor's bottom.
