    2002 911 Carrera Coupe six speed
  1. Thanks for the replies guys. Did a search here and found the link to the manual. Used the procedure with a spare battery and it worked perfectly.
  2. did try a few searches will try again, btw 2002 996 thanks
  3. My hood accidentally was closed while the battery was disconnected. Is there any way to manually trip the release? thanks is advance for any replies.
  4. 2002 c2 138000 miles no oil burning & runs real strong
  5. Not all of these fail!! 113,000 miles on a 2002 c2 dailey driver. No unusual oil consumption and no RMS issues. I have had the car since june of 07 & purchased it with 87,000 miles. At that time , bone stock the engine made 341 HP.
  6. Why would 17 up front & 18 in the rear be bad? On C5 Vettes the stock wheels are 17 up front, 2454517s & in the rear 2754018s. This gives the car a lower front versus rear stance. Is there something incompatible with this on a 996 suspension?
  7. Its good to finally find someone approaching the 200k mark. I still have not found anyone with 95,000 on a 2002 C2, the mark that I have just passed!
  8. It does work. I saw this on my 97 Vette. Rear diff lube with additive. Obviously the tranny fliud helps smooth out the shifting, when added to the synthetic gear oil.
  9. Try fresh gear oil with problend additive. This stuff does work. The oil additive & gear oil additive actually reduces friction. In the case of differential additive, it actually increases RWHP by 2 or 3 HP, due to less friction.
  10. Congrats Miko, I think you made the right choice! I picked up a 2002 C2 back in June, after running Vettes since 89. I originally felt I needed to bump up the 320HP, especially since I was used to the torque of a V8. When you appreciate the balance & chasis dynamics of the Carrera, the car is definitely quick enough in stock fashion, although I will tweek mine as time goes on. I know exactly how you feel cause I cant stop driving mine! Good luck.
  11. I have the K&N kit with stock mufflers on my 2002C2. It sreams above 4k & beyond. Much louder than with the stock air box. this tells me the motor is getting more air, which neccisarily means more HP, but for 250 bucks, the sound alone is worth it. MY 2cents.
  12. Thanks Loren , I figured you would have the answer.
  13. Thanks for the info. You have definitely sold me on the wing. Spot on, I might add.
  14. Does anyone know if the option code is listed anywhere on the vehicle & if so, how do I decipher it? If it isnt, can I get the option code through Porsche by VIN#? I have a 2002 C2.
  15. Looks outstanding. did you have to change the intake duct?
