Oakland_Stan replied to Ponch's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I have a 2005 base C2 3.6. No problems whatsoever. Mine only have 11k miles. I think you will hear more people talk about it when they have a problem as opposed to when they don't have any problems. I believe overall reliability for these cars is very good.
Not sure if you are still looking for advice on this or not but I'll give my 2c. I did have my base 997.1 reflashed with GIAC software and together with the EVOMS intake the car is more powerful - no question about it. I never had it dyno'd but I know it's faster than it was before. Subsequently I have since added an entirely new exhaust; Cargraphic headers and Techart mufflers, and I think the chip and intake combo made the most difference. All work was done at Sharkwerks in San Jose, CA.
Hi All, Just curious to find out if anyone of the forum has done this? I recently damaged the front end bumper cover on my 997 but instead of buying a replacement cover I decided to purchase a used front end from an 08 Turbo. I'm 99% certain the bumper cover itself will fit with no problems, however, what I'm less sure about is what it's going to take to get the Turbo LED turn signals to operate correctly. Does anyone have any thoughts on what it might take to get this working? I am assuming I could just add either a resistor or LED flasher unit to each of the existing front turn signal
