  1. 1. I would like to know what you personally use to catch the 9 qts. of oil as it drains...? (Seems like a awfull lot of oil for a cheapo lil' standard oil pan seing as most cars only use 4-5 qts...) 2. How and what do you use to pour it into to keep from making a mess on your garage floor so that I can transport it to a oil recycling facility? 3. What retailer has the best price for oil? Kragen? Napa?, WalMart? etc...
  2. I installed the ROW M030 and had my car aligned at Porsche approx one year ago, and noticed that the inside portion of my rear tires (285's) is wearing much faster than normal. I was wondering if Porsche sells a different piece for ROW cars that is more adjustable that the ones on our US cars? It is significant enough that I am thinking of going back to stock 265's as well to see if that helps... What I don't want to do is pay for an alignment and new set of tires every year... Suggestions? Paul
  3. San Diego County Ca = (619), (858) or (760) only Orange County Ca = (714) (951) etc. Los Angeles CA = (213), (310) etc.
  4. Sunset Porsche or Brandywine Porshe have great deals from time to time as well as EBay. I would stay away from anything that is not OEM. Just speaking from experience... Paul
  5. Why would two O2 sensors would fail at 38k miles on my best friend's 2000 C4 ? Paul
  6. Has anyone ever tried putting a late model GT3 suspension (coilovers, bars etc) in a 99' or 2000' 3.4 L stock 996? If so what mods would have to be done? Paul
  7. For fear of tickets/jail I have only gotten mine up to 145mph. . . But it was ready and willing to go more!
  8. :eek: I think I have a ghost living in my car. . . Tee hee hee 1. When closing the moon roof, on occasion it will close all the way and then suddenly open back up again 1/4 of the way for no reason? Nothing is blocking it and the track is clean... Any thoughts? 2. Also wierd, when my fiancee closes the passenger side door, sometimes the window rolls down 1/4 of the way for no know reason? She has great respect for the P-car and dson't slam the door either... Any thoughts? :help: Paul
  9. My friend has an OEM artic silver one with cover and wall torage rack for $600 Call me if your interested.... 619-990-2257 San Diego Paul

  12. This one is my favorite so far....Who do you think can get me this one at a good deal?
  13. I found a guy with a supposed exact replica GT3 front bumper cover made by Jackman for sale for $500. (Fits my 99' C2) Has anyone had experience with non OEM front bumper covers such as this? Is this a good deal? Paul
  14. I am not familiar with this program... Can you plese direct me to where I can find out more info???? Paul
  15. Call Gert at Carnewal... He has a set exactly like the Ruf, but without the engraved lettering and much more afordable! You can see pictures of mine by clicking on the link to my garage... www.carnewal.com
  16. I went on ebay, craigslist and various other forums (renntech/6speed) looking for a good deal on a wing but had no luck. So I ordered the part from Suncoast today and they gave me a good discount $66~ Should arrive in a week or so depending on the weather over there. Loren do you have any info for removal and replacement so I can make us another DIY article for the fix??? Paul
  17. Ahhhhh, I see. Your wing is fixed right? with no vents correct? thus your car dosn't need nor get any of that cooler air... Is that why you got a thrid radiator?
  18. If I do a new wing (Misha type) can you explain to me how if it is fixed it keeps the engine cool? Paul
  19. I have a 1999 996 C2 and noticed the other day when washing my car that when the wing is in the up position, my black accordion looking baffle is torn & has two good sized holes in it. Should I be concerned (i.e less air going down to cool the engine?) or it this purely cosmetic? If it is not cosmetic, how do all these guys with the fixed wings get away with it????? <_< Also how much for the part and how easy is it to DIY... Paul
  20. For example, when I did the performance driving school I was sliding all around in my seat and by the end of the day my right shin had a nice bruise from pressing it up against the center console. . . My thoughts were: There must be an affodable way to lock me down in the seat better, without buying GT3 alien head seats and a full harness setup...? Or maybe some of you have some tips on how to save weight and go faster? Or possibly what tools I should bring with me just in case???
  21. I am interested in doing a auto cross about 3-4 times a year to keep my drinving skills up. . . Got any suggestions, tips, or tricks you may have for me to make it easier/ more fun, or cost affordable? :drive: The link below summarizes my cars mods: Paul
  22. Replaced the Pirelli Asym, with Pirelli Asym Rosso's: Also wnet to 285's in the rear. Discount tire had them on sale everything out the door for $1k. The Rosso's are about 20% quieter so far and feel alot softer and stickier in the grip in the turns
  23. I am liking the new rosso's on my 996 so far. They got a cool "rim saver" lip too.~ Paul
