  1. Hi Ski, I'm just going off of memory but the plug on the maf sensor is a push type. I also remember it being hard and taking a lot of pressure. When you squeeze it in the right spot you will hear it click usually. I have a 997.2 gt3 and I don't have a bolt that holds the box down so I don't know what to tell you there. Maybe if you can post a pic someone can help. Good luck. Jermmy
  2. I have a 2010 997.2 GT3 and I use the cigarette lighter plug on mine and in have not had a problem.

    My new GT3

    Congrats and waiting to see more pics.
  4. Sounds pretty normal. As White987S says, just be diligent on your service. I would recommend using Mobile 5W40. I don't think you need the heavier weights unless you are going to track the car. I spoke to Porsche North America not to long ago and they recommended having the higher oil temps to evaporate any moisture or fuel dilution out of your oil. Happy motoring and I wouldn't be worried about it. Jermmy
  5. I have them on my GT3 and I would say they are a bit touch and go in the wet. Wear has been good and the cold does not bother them to terribly bad. If you have a turbo they may not be as bad. With mine being rear wheel drive only, if I touch the throttle just a little to much the rear end breaks loose. With that said, if you are looking for a good track day tire for the wet I would recommend them but for the road it's your call. If you can live with them squirming around a bit on the road I would go for it. They are worth it on the dry days. Jermmy
  6. Hello Matt, Welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy the GT3 and Happy motoring. :thumbup:
  7. Hi and welcome to the forum. I don't think reliability is an issue with either. The main thing is finding one that has not been abused. Most of these cars are tracked so you need to have it checked out fully. Other than that the .2 has a little higher maintenance cost, mainly because of the center locks. In my opinion I don't think you can go wrong with either version. Just fined one you like and have fun. Happy hunting and let us know if you find something. Jermmy
  8. Personal I would stay way from it. To many possible problems. You don't know if the damage is just on the body. There are a lot of missing parts by the look of it. Also, you don't know how long it has been open to the weather. There could be a lot of water inside causing big electrical problems. With a 10,000 bid and an estimated 53,000 in repairs, I would pass. I would bet it would turn into a money pit also you could find a used on that was road ready for not much more. Just my opinion. Jermmy
  9. Not sure about the firmware updates but I'm guessing the dealer would have to do it. I've been in contact with JMehl and the problem is resolved. It turned out to be a bad interface cable. He replaced it and everything works fine now. Jermmy
  10. I'm not completely sure on the 996 but I would think that it's there for noise dampening. A lot of intakes have foam in them to decrease the amount of sound coming out of them. So if you see no other reason for it to be there and you like the sound, I would say don't worry about it. Jermmy
  11. Your numbers sound about right, maybe a little steep if you are wanting to drive straight in without coming at it with an angle. I was guessing about 8 degrees with the lift up. My drive is about 14 degrees on turn in and I have to come in on a 45 degree angle with the lift up. I barely make it with about an 1/8" clearence. When I first brought it home I had to have my wife get out and watch to see if it was going to clear, lol. With that said I don't scrub the lip too much but I do scrub the deflector in front of the wheel all the time. For some reason it seems to hit things that the lip will clear. Have a good one. Jermmy
  12. I can't give you any exact angles but I know it has to be very shallow with the lift is down. Mine barely clears with the lift up and my drive isn't very steep. What I would do if you want to know the exact clearence angle is put the lift up. Then put a string under the front tire and pull it tight to the bottom of the front lip spoiler. You will be able to use a angle finder or a speed square to get the exact angle. I hope this help and good luck. :) Jermmy
  13. Welcome to the forum. I hope it serves you as well as myself and many others. Very nice turbo and mazda as well. Get out and enjoy driving them every chance you get. I know mine sits in the garage way too much. Happy motoring Jermmy
