Gator996 replied to stsanford's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)****...That was like a scene from the exorcist!
How in the world are they unable to recreate that mess? Why not leave the car with them for a week or two and ask them to drive it everyday a couple of times?
Gator996 replied to Jorge332655's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Nothing for 3 grand... What are you're options? Well over 3k option SC for 10K Porsche's Power kit (forget the price, I think roughly 8k) More than 3k alternative Intake, Header, Exhaust, ECU...won't get you 350 but you'll have spent $$$ like it should have. Less unsprung weight in wallet will equal faster car. 3k Alternative Lightweight flywheel...won't improve HP but it will improve acceleration (maybe it will feel like 350) Downside is that introduces more noise and labor is equal to doing a clutch job.
Gator996 replied to stevecod's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Would agree with LV about the RMS...don't worry about it until you HAVE to worry about it. Most cars never have a RMS issue and the new replacement seal seems to be the solution many had hoped for years would come. Now about the clutch...You may want to take the time and read some of the clutch related posts over on 6speedonline. One guy over there says Porsche has acknowledged a flaw in the pre -01 cars that caused premature failure. There is a small part replacement that should be done when the clutch is replaced to remedy it. Can't vouch for the accuracy of the post but worth reading.
Gator996 replied to Gabo2k's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Actually they do make a 285/30/18, which is the rear tire size I will be purchasing. I still cannot believe I am getting 4 tires, installed and balanced for $590.00 total, what a deal. Through who? Tirerack?
Gator996 replied to Gabo2k's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I've used them on a '79 911SC & '99 996 Cab... Great tire for the money. Excellent dry, good wet traction and EXTREMELY quiet. Very good looking tire. They wear fantastic and seem to last much longer than Pirelli or Brigestones I've used. Biggest problem for me now is that I prefer 285's on the rear and I don't think Sumi has this tire in that size. Not the best performance tire that you can buy, but good performance at an unbeatable price.

Gator996 replied to skymast's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)There's a black one on Ebay right now...
Gator996 replied to JoeA's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)OEM Turbo Decklids will not work on a narrowbody Need to get a Turbo Look lid and then buy a GT-2 style blade like Turbo owners do. Or, you can get in touch with 996wings.com. Misha sells a hyvrid GT-2/GT-3 style wing that looks great.
Gator996 replied to Hroussard's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Everything I've read has said they are nothing but a waste of money on the 996.
Gator996 replied to Gator996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)US Grand Prix :censored:
Gator996 replied to Gator996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I don't even want to beat a dead horse anymore since its been the only discussion in Indy since this morning but I will say this... Today all of the racing fans lost and F1 just got a huge black mark in the minds of alot of racing fans who traveled here from all over the world. It was so cool this morning before the race...it just ruined a great day. Anyway here's some of the pics from a great Supercup run (a small grin that the Porsche cars ran fine today)
