  1. When you reduce back pressure in exhaust system for sure you loose low end torque but you gain a little bit on top end. Many years ago I have raced karts- Yamaha 100cc class. To gain low end torque you would install longer "flexpipe". If top speed was the goal shorter pipe was the solution. Provided that your gearing was setup to optimum you would do fine tuning with "flexpipe". Same principle here.
  2. I have them too. I love it. I don't even turn radio on but it is not every day vehicle for me. Sound is just amazing from that flat six when screems at "correct" rpm range . Stock system does not do the justice. It has a sweet spot at 4k rpm and up. I have to look in to headers, I did not think it would be any improvments in the sound. I have some buzzing noises from rear bumper heat shielding but that can be easy fix. It is not for everyone- it's loud but oh well that is why I have this car- it's my stress relief.
  3. I would not resurface your Porsche rotors just replace them.
  4. Loren that is not the point, no offense to anyone. No, I did not driven Tiptornic nor I realy have to. I enjoy shifting gears, heal-and- toe right before turn in etc. For me Porsche is a sports car -like Jay Leno said about Carrera GT " it has a proper transmission..... not a video game controls". Numbers don't mean to me that much anymore. I want to have fun with a car, that is my objective. Trust me I drive plenty of cars every day (500hp plus with auto boxes ) that's my job. But it is nothing like after long straight-away downshifting thru the gears, double clutching, bleeping throttle,
  5. Wow Chuck sorry to hear that. Glad you are ok. Air bags can be very dangerous. I have heard that couple of years ago Porsche tech got killed by one of those. TT will make up for all your troubles. I'm glad to see that you are a true Porsche guy.
  6. Why would you buy a PORSCHE with tiptronic?
  7. Some cars came with Beru some with Bosch, NGK's work just fine.
  8. I have seen something simular on Land Rovers (Range Rover) Bosch ABS system. On fast sweepers, getting on the ramp etc. ABS would kick in without even touching brake pedal- factory had a TSB for that issue. Fix was replacement of the ABS module with updated part.
  9. On my 99 c2 rears are 295/30/19s with rg5 champion wheels, they fit perfect. Don't stick out beyond the fender. I don't know what the offset is but wheels are a bit hard to turn when vehicle is on the lift- not a big deal. Front is 235/35/19.
  10. So would you recommend going with gt3 suspension or PSS9 setup. My P-car is not everyday vehicle. Can you adjust ride hight with gt3 suspension? What I understand from reading gt3 is much more stiffer setup.
  11. Hi Can someone tell me if 996 gt2 coilovers would fit 99 C2. Thank you
  12. Hi everyone Finally I have bought my first Porsche, :jump: it is a 99 996 ocean blue metallic. I had the car for few days now but just today I took her home. She will not be my daily driver. My goal is to turn her into competitive PCA club racer/street car. My last sports car I have owned was Corvette ZR1 and I had that car for 11 years. I always wanted a Porsche though. So after many years without sports car I have filled empty spot in my garage tonight:jump: :drive: Porsche- there is no substitute. :thumbup:
  13. Thank you slbates for your response. I did performed compression test (cold engine). 1 cyl 160psi 2 cyl 155psi 3 cyl 160psi 4 cyl 160psi 5 cyl 150psi 6 cyl 160psi So all are within 10% range that is not so bad. I also smoke tested intake system for vacuum leaks, and found problem with o-rings around plastic tubes- sleeves on few cylinders. But don't know how big of an efect that would have on engine running. I did remove oil cap and engine started to run realy bad so perhaps, new o-rings would improve a situation. Seems to me like engine crank case develops a
