  1. No, it's clipped in there, just pull it off. Here are a few pics I sent to a guy. Hope they help out. Here are the pics: http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj153/s...8/911/belt3.jpg http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj153/s...8/911/belt4.jpg http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj153/s...8/911/belt2.jpg http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj153/s...8/911/belt1.jpg
  2. Just wondering how difficult it is and if anyone had the DIY? It looks to be a pain, didn't know if you had to drop the engine. Thanks, Jon Swift
  3. I'm more concerned about the front, but wouldn't mind doing both. I'll do a search, I just didn't see anything sticking out at me when I did yesterday.
  4. I'm sure it's not too complicated, is there any info on removing seatbelts? I didn't see anything in the DIY section.
  5. Just wondering, I will probably put the switch/button in the center console. Where is a good place to feed the line up into the cabin and what is a good source to get power from a negative and positive from? I'll be updating with pics, basically I'm having these valves custom welded to the bypass pipes with slip fits to clamp over the existing pipe which comes from the cat. This will give me control of the exhaust output. This way I can keep it quieter around the neighborhood/passing cops/etc.

  7. Well the dust shield I had to trim off a little it was rubbing the brake rotor. I also found some sort of electronic condenser or something that melted through the plastic in the wheel well. It appeared that the tire had been rubbing on that. I relocated it up a little so it wouldn't be near the tire but still safe from the elements. However when I took it for a spin the noise was still there.
  8. A 99 C4 It's tough to explain it's a rotational noise that almost sounds like either a tire rubbing slightly or a bad bearing? I don't know it doesn't get louder or change pitch at different speeds or throttle. I couldn't find a reason for it the tire to be rubbing. Any thoughts?
  9. But it instantly makes your car seem faster haha, I had an RX8, and you just pushed a button and it changed everything, I use to do it every now and again to put the kph in perspective.
  10. I think it's blown a little out of proportion. Probably just because of how much money a 911 costs. I don't see them having any more issues that your typical sports car. There will always be a few duds or someone not following manufacture recommendations. I've seen a few 996s with over 100K still original engines in them. The RMS issue isn't that big of a deal. The horror stories are most likely people who don't know anything about the car and neglect to see it happening. If an engine seal is leaking a good amount of oil, probably should get it fixed not continue to drive on it, loose oil, and have none left for the engine. Engine seals are sort of temperamental, leaving the car sitting for long periods of time isn't a great idea from my experience with any car. I'd try to find a good one that has been serviced, and also get a pre-purchase inspection on it. Just price out in your head, worst case scenario, if _______ happened what would I do.
  11. Yeah CF would look real nice over it. Let me know if you do that. I'm sure even w/o the "sock", it would be fine, not a lot of water gets down in there anyways. If you used seals, you could make an air tight box that only drew in cold air from the vents since it retains the OEM air duct. That would be really cool, probably a bit more expensive but just a thought.
