  1. No idea on cost of getting piwis, only that, I believe, it can only be done at a $tealership.
  2. Sorry I can’t help. But Joe, Loren, or Jeff will probably know. Alternative is a visit to your local stealership for a piwis and wheel removal. Again, good luck.
  3. Yep, adding the name Porsche to anything also adds some cost. All part of the deal. What’s your 996? Mine was a C4$. And there’s that old saying, “if you have to ask the price you probably can’t afford it.” The issue, imho, boils down to spending big bucks now to avoid spending monster bucks later. Owning a Porsche means keeping up the maintenance without hesitation. Best not to learn that the hard way. I had the LN replacement ims bearing, and following Jeff’s good advice would have put on The Solution when it was time to replace it. Oh yes, ya gotta replace your replacement ims at sa
  4. Yes. I think most on forum would agree. Right, Jeff? Like replacing the old sealed hydraulic chain tensioners with oil pressure tensioners. (That’s for those of us who might have had an air-cooled 911.). I think LE calls it “the solution.”
  5. I don’t intend to start the “tire wars” up again, but I ran on Michelin PS2’s year round. It’s not a winter tire, not m+s rated, but rated aa and great in wet weather. 295/30 on the back.
  6. My memory is that the 285 is an all-season tire, and the 295 is a summer only, not M&S rated. Look for tire sizes on inside of gas flap.
  7. Another thought. Can you access the fuel tank on top where the sender goes in? i remember changing out the sender on my ‘79 SC. Easy job then, not sure on 996, but maybe there’re a gasket or something that’s cracked? The filler switch wires are under the battery tray. I don’t think you would get too much odor from filler check valve, as problem there would be more likely not opening to allow a gas full up. I remember a mouse nest up under there once, chewed through the check valve wires. it’s on the forum somewhere. Valve wouldn’t open, but a quick solder job on wires was quick
  8. I’d trust LN, but you might be able to use a different shaped substitute line or a pendable flex line.
  9. I’m pretty sure you would have seen any gas leaking out from small cracks in hoses. Maybe worth another check for worn hoses, wet spots, etc. Mystery for sure. Good luck, Mitch.
  10. Well Joe and Mitch , all I can add is the thought that “she’s real fine, my 409.” good luck with this, the Chevy is supposed to be pretty reliable. The conversion must have been a challenge indeed, but I’d call the conversion a transgender switch to “bride of Frankenstein.” Best to all y’all, j
