  1. Great info Loren, thanks!!
  2. I read it was possible to register type II over-revs by bouncing off the rev limiter. Someone posted they had accumulated type II over-revs doing dyno pulls with no downshifts. I believe this claim because I was told by my tech I had 225-250 type II over revs on my 997S even though I had never mechanically over-revved the car. When I bought it, it was still wrapped in plastic and only a handful of people had driven it with me in the passenger seat each time. That car is long gone so I am only concerned that I will accumulate type II over-revs on my Turbo. What your thoughts?
  3. The rear latches on the cab top basically have 2 positions, latched and unlatched. You insert the red handled tool and turn it all the way in one direction or the other and there is no way to determine torque. I had a hardtop on my 01 996 C2 cab and did not have the chafing you experienced but my car came with the top from the factory. The only way that you could have torque issues is if you bought your top as an accessory. If your car did not come with a hardtop from the factory, it didn't come with the latches and your dealership had to have installed them. They need to be adjusted to the car when they are mounted to the car but after that, there is no torque adjustment when you install or remove the top. I suppose if your car came with the hardtop from the factory, the factory could have screwed up but regardless, the torque can not be adjusted by the owner when installing a top. Just thought I'd throw that out there in case people were trying to figure out how to torque a latch with the little red handle. :D
