Thanks, No, it's not lowered. My other cars were and I had a GT3 RS front nose and it rubbed a lot. I'm planning to do the same mod on this one so I'll keep it at original height. Here's a pic of the one I traded for a BMW!!!!!!! what was I thinking.....
It's my third 997 with 20" wheels. I really don't feel that I lost ride quality. It looks great and handle very well. I have to say that I had Nitto's on the first car and they were really loud. Now I have Pirelli's and they are a lot better. Hope it helps.
I have a 2006 C4S with the Bose subwoofer but it's not enough. I'm thinking of disconnecting the sub and wiring the OEM amp + and - to a new aftermarket amp to the speaker level input. I would install 2 JL W610 in the back Anybody tried it before? I search the forum but can't find any info. Thanks

Just wanted to share the final pictures of my 997.
elrover replied to elrover's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I was able to clamp one hose on the driver side with the special pliers. Then one guy holding a bucket and the other quickly installed the hoses. It spilled a little. Thanks for all the tips guys. Now what's left is to do the holes under the bumper.
Does anybody have 315/25-20 and 245/30-20 on a 997 narrow body. Tirerack recommends 305/25-20 and 235/30-20 and but I would like to put a little wider tires.
I'm getting ready to install the 997 Third Radiator Kit sold by Suncoast Porsche. Is there a step by step procedure somewhere that show how to install it. Thanks
Great looking car. Where did you get the rear wing? Thanks

Whats that? The "broomstick" test means that the top of the drivers helmet must be below the line from the top of the roll bar to the top of the windshield. I hope this helps, Gustavo Got ya. I will definitely fail that at 6" 1' and with the standard seats. I dont sit too well with them low down. I find I get less back pain having them up slighlty as I can get the back to angle a bit further back. I bought a pair of Sparco Milano seats on an impulse then realised I couldn't get any runners for them to fix them to my car - doh! I installed a pair of Corbeau seat in my boxster and I'm very happy with the fit and confort. Here is the link http://www.corbeau.com/products/trs/trs.shtml# The regular width fits perfectly, I don't think that the wide would work. They sell the sliding base for the boxster so no drilling required. they are lower then the oem electric seat. I'm 6' tall, if you want I could measure the space between my head and the roll bar. Let me know if you want pictures.
i don't agree with your theory. i think your MAF is going bad and that's why you're having issues. there is a simple test you can do to see if your MAF is bad. disconnect the MAF wiring harness from the MAF (but leave the MAF in place). disconnect the negative battery cable for (at least) a minute, the re-connect it. this will reset the DME. (if you disconnect the battery for less than a minute, the DME will remember the MAF settings and the car will run the same). start and drive the car (with the MAF wiring harness disconnected). this will not hurt your car in any way. if your car runs better (high-end torque returns, etc.) then your MAF is bad. to double-check this, re-connect the MAF wiring harness, disconnect (for at least a minute) and re-connect the battery again, and then start the car. see if the high-end torque disappears again. if it does, then you can be sure that you need a new MAF. you may have already tried this, i can't remember. for itzbob46, you don't need to worry about disconnecting your battery at all. the reason that CJ Boxster is having problems is probably because his MAF is bad (or going bad), not because he disconnected the battery. MAFs do get 'dirty' and sometimes the problem can be fixed (for a short while) by cleaning them. but eventually all MAFs get to the point where cleaning them has no effect and you just have to spring for a new one. if you think that your car is running normally, then it probably is. after you get to know the car for a while, you'll be able to notice a performance loss pretty quickly. no worries. ;) I want to say that there are a lot of knowledgeable people on this forum and I’m very happy to be a member. I just disconnected the MAF and my car came back to life… I will be replacing the MAF tomorrow. Thanks to CJ BOXSTER and CHRIS in NH for the great help. elrover
