  1. Very welcome. Glad you found our little space on the internet!
  2. Stock. Have you seen the nice unit already present in the car? It's hidden under the plastic valences. FYI.....same setup in the cups!
  3. The stock rotors are not expensive at all and are proven. That's what I stick with. When it comes to items like brakes, I will ONLY go with what is proven and if an "aftermarket" item pops up it generally isn't worth saving a couple dollars. At about $150 a rotor, there is no reason to skimp. Just my $.02 If a company like Powerslot would make replacements then it would be a nice option. I guess the problem is there really isn't a huge demand for stock 996 Turbo rotors in the market as most guys spending $$$ on rotors for their Turbo are in the upgrade club. Now, if you want to upgrad
  4. Doing a tranny fluid change on a 2006 Cayman (6sp) and can't find the tranny fill plug. These are obvious on the 996 cars but we don't see it anywhere. THANKS FOR ANY QUICK HELP AS THE CAR IS ON THE LIFT!!!! :)
  5. Thanks for the kind words Mike! Glad my thread was able to help. Cheers, Dell

  6. Sorry Loren, I forgot to delete my post. I didn't realize this wasn't the DIY thread and it was the other link that has the pics. Sorry :)
  7. Owner of both here as well. Very simply, the GT3 takes some serious skill to drive fast and at the limit but if you have that skill it is VERY easy to drive. The RSA on the other, regarding of how much skill you have will be an incredible workout when you finish a session. The lack of power steering, the shorter wheelbase, and the lack of power all contribute to you having to really work to get the car going toward the limit. When I would be done from a session in the GT3 that everything went well I would feel so refreshed and pumped on andrenaline. When I would be done from a session
  8. Thanks Loren! Also, thanks for deleting my double posting of the DIY (I goofed and hit submit twice). I was going to PM you about it but it was already gone!
  9. Dension Install In 996 Turbo With Cdr23 (Complete Step-By-Step+Pics) Dension install in 996 Turbo with CDR23 (complete step-by-step with pics) Car: 2003 Turbo Head Unit: CDR23 (MOST bus based system) So I spent hours reading up on the install to make sure I knew how to install this unit before I tackled it. The one thing I found was NOBODY has posted a simple thread that details step-by-step what to do. There is a thread over in the 997 fourm that is almost 600 posts long and while it has some great info, it's VERY DIFFICULT to get anything from it. Took me several hou

  12. Perfect, thanks Loren. Direct to the battery with a fuse it is!
  13. Just didn't know if it was "safe" to run the Dension unit straight to the battery or it's the "same" thing as tapping into an unswitched line. I'm just stupid when it comes to electricity :) Thanks Loren!
  14. I knew that was going to come bite me in the butt :) I should have specified that I was looking for something other than the battery.
  15. Car is a 2003 Turbo Looking for an unswitched power source I can tap into in the front boot. I do not have a CD changer so I don't think there is a CD changer harness sitting unused up there that I could tap into. Any other suggestions?
  16. Apparently there is face is an internal document for X73 install and the TU on this is absurd. 12.50 hours for install, mounts, and full alignment.
  17. What year is your car? What model is your head unit?
  18. Ok, now that makes sense. The dealers put together a "package" and then sell it as if it was an offered p/n package to begin with. Makes sense.
  19. Interesting since I just ordered the "X73" kit from the dealer. http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/X73carrera.html?Category_Code=996ttsusp Is there anything that would be a comparable? i.e., the RoWM030, X74, etc?
  20. Title says it all. What does Porsche list as the official TU for install of the X73 package. If there is a document that illustrated the install requirements and time charged I would appreciate it. Thanks!
