  1. I used to live in CO, now in PA. I still get out there once in a while. It was quite a drive to/from PA. In any case, she (the gt3) was very happy in the mountains otherwise. photo from Brainard lake below (love the hiking). Yes. Dave was very helpful. i guess that the problem could not have occurred in a better place. ;) Any other thoughts w/r to the cold since it has only been noted with <20F (<-10C) weather. thanks fve
  2. I think that it is equivalent to the OBD code, if so then it was P1266.
  3. I apologize if anyone has seen this on another forum--i posted elsewhere initially and did not get much of a response... I use my GT3 as a DD and heck, i even enjoy driving it to the ski slopes. In any case, many around north america are aware of the recent chill. Recently, while driving to the slopes, the throttle would occasionally ... hiccup. It felt as though there was a momentary decrease in power: it could be felt and heard in terms of engine/exhaust note. It would happen most often going up-hill. Temperatures were around 0 F (i.e. -17 C). Incidentally, i felt something similar when

    996 GT3 Mash Note

    Hello. I am a brand new 2004 GT3 owner. I posted a while ago with some questions regarding a specific car. That car needed the second gear synchro replaced. Well, it was replaced and it took a while. Well, i finally got to drive this particular car and i purchased it. So...i suppose that this purchase makes me a new GT3 owner. Yeah me. I am posting this message on two forums—i hope that this does not violate some forum protocol as i like both forums for different reasons. I would first like to thank the folks that posted their comments to my original questions as the replies were
  6. thank you both. The car just makes me swoon. I am just trying to make sure that i make a reasonable decision and not get carried away with emotion. If all goes well and nothing else becomes an issue...perhaps fortune will smile upon me and she will join the family.
  7. Hi. I am (almost) completely virginal w/r to posting on any board--i posted a similar question on another board. I have followed several over the years, just never felt the need to spread my seed, so to speak. Anyway, i am breaking my silence. I would kindly ask for some feedback from those in the know. I am looking to purchase a 2004 gt3. I will spare you the reasons for this decision, etc. I have seen several posts on this and other forums regarding particular things to look out for: overrevs, excessive suspension wear (indicating hard track use...), etc. The particular car i have an int
