  1. I recommend S-Car-Go in San Rafael--great work, nice guys and very reasonable
  2. Aaron, I have the big reds, but didn't DIY. Basically you need the calipers and the rotors, clips, wear sensors, etc. It does require a mod of the caliper and you need to make sure that the setup will fit behind your wheels. I decided to pay someone to do the work. It was a relatively small amount of money compared to the cost of the parts. Good luck!
  3. You can look at some of the dismantlers to get a sense for price--probably not much more than $4,000 in a great economy. You can have a look at some of the other boards about engine swaps and adding a supercharger (http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/996/146192-vf-supercharger-thread.html). Putting a 3.6L or 3.8L engine in a 996 seems to result in a need for a compelte rewiring of the car. Depending upon where you live, you may have issues with emissions certification, etc. You're looking at ~$12,000 for a SC. Guys get really enthusiastic about the power increase (who wouldn't!). I spoke with m
  4. The car will run fine, but you will get a CEL unless you plug the sensors into a bypass device. I've seen them around for race cars. When you go to smog the car, you'll have a problem
  5. Thanks Chuck. Good advice. Based on what I've been reading I'll probably save my money and pass on the headers. I may have my cats rebuilt as my last hurrah!
  6. I'm having a great time playing with my 99 C2 cab. Installed the PSS9s, sway bars, IPD plenum, Fabspeed cold air kit, lightweight flywheel, 19" wheels with some Toyo Proxes, and Fabspeed mufflers. It's gone from great to greater! Now I'm looking at headers and 200 cell cats. The range of pricing on stainless steel headers is pretty wide. While, at least visually and based on the materials spec, they "look" the same. There must be some difference between the $150 generic headers and what Fabspeed sells. Does anyone have any advice or experience to share? Thanks!
  7. I'm considering installing an IPD intake plenum on my 1999 996. They promise 30 hp from this bolt-on mod. Anyone have any experience or advice on this?
  8. Great instructions. the first timethrough I did not know about the top torx screw (#25). Spend $6 and get a little flexible extender to get at the top screw. Then it really is a snap. Otherwise, you're in for some serious frustration.
