  1. Danke! She's been fun so far;) No contest... that 3.9 has some 500hp and is lighter:P Plus she goes to 8800rpms: http://sharkwerks.com/porsche/technical-ar...ne-upgrade.html But she's just getting started:P Thanks and she's been getting a good work out so far:) Sure thing.. the GT3 has two rear and one center muffler. The two side mufflers have a bypass controlled by a valve (and switch inside the car- like PSE). Our set up replaces the center one;)
  2. In conjunction with Shark Week (hope you guys are all watching) I picked up an Arctic Silver 2010 997 GT3 MKII car today from our friends at Carlsen (Gary Q was great to work with as always). It car came with PCCB's, black full leather, adaptive sport seats with painted seat backs, self dim mirror and rain sensor (whoopee!), PCM3.0 With Extended NAV (cool for a daily d), sound package plus (for rockin' tunes), dynamic cornering lights, Bluetooth, Sport Chrono +, painted nipples and a gas guzzler option (which I really like!). A few thoughts since it's early days and I've been driving her aro
  3. Thanks for the kind words fellas and enjoy her Alex!
  4. Removing the ECU Carpet Cover and ECU Tray Now you must remove the carpeted cover over the ECU tray. First pull up from the middle-rear of the carpet: To pull the carpet out, it must bow-up in the middle as shown in the picture, to allow the sides to be removed. Then it pulls straight-up and out of the car. With the ECU tray exposed, locate the 10mm nut in the center of the trays and remove it. Next remove the two 10mm nuts on the left side of the tray: Now you can pull the left side of the tray up. It is an aluminum piece with a foam block attached to it
  5. If you guys are thinking of a re-flash and/or want to change the software on your 996 or 997, it may be necessary to remove the ECU from the car yourself. We actually wrote up a DIY for this on our site so I figured I'd share it On hardtop models, the ECU is attached to a tray behind the back seats, and is generally blocked by the Bose subwoofer system which also has to be removed. The process takes about 15-30 minutes or less. If your car is a cabriolet, you will need to follow another set of steps which we will document at a later time. Before you begin, you should have the tools required

  7. Great to meet you bernie and thanks for swinging by... 1.0bar is about all you want from a K16 car with an exhaust. Anymore than that and you're just spinning the turbos out of their efficiency range anyways ;) Thanks for the kind words guys!
  8. Hey guys, we were in a real rush yesterday (Fred had to go to the gym ) so unfortunately we didn't get as much footage as I wanted. The wind was pretty high as well and in reality only the second flyby captures some of the essence of that sound. I swear there is no other Porsche I've heard (road cars that is) other than the CGT that sounds this good/crazy. It's such a clean/crisp sound that I know what I'm doing on ours in 2 weeks time For 7500 you get 200 cell high flow cats, longer tube headers and some tips but you also loose about 38 pounds of weight (verified). I'm not sure on the power g
  9. If any of you guys are in the bay area, I have one on my shop car so you could always listen to it. I could still probably get a GB going.
  10. A couple of things that come to mind here. On the NA cars I've had one too many instances of CELs with after-market cats. They eventually trigger CELs, or at least the ones with 100, 200 cell cats do. The only set that hasn't and that I still use are the AWE cats. We've seen/installed/tried every exhaust system you can do and to date here are my favorites 1)Exhaust- Tubi- the sound is fantastic. The materials are very light in weight. There's no resonance. The built quality is top-notch but it's very expensive at 2350 for the mufflers. Installation is a breeze because the fitment is perfect. T
  11. Just as an FYI guys... It's apparently the Fuel Tank according to Brian Haske @ Carlsen "Christian said the sensor is off the tank, by the sending unit" Easy enough to fix:)
  12. That's the direction:) Bloody light came on again... Of course noboyd has seen "this" one before.... Not even sure what "tank" they are referring too here lol. The PST2 and the manuals don't really say much about this one;(
  13. You know me.. I just looooooove to rip things apart anyways:) Loren you are so bloody right man. I love no PSM, no E gas... 2930 pounds and we haven't even stripped her down!!!
  14. Dangit! Looks like me has to go through the wiring harness on this one:(
  15. Just picked up a 99 C2 (non Egas just for Loren!) for the shop today and it has the P0452 code? Anyone had that yet? James is away tomorrow so I thought I'd try fix it without him hehe;)
