  1. My first 911 (1972 ) had two battry's, one in each front wing. The first short wheelbase 911 was even modified with lead weights well forward. These cars have come a long way but are still tail heavy with a fairly high "polar moment of iniertia", meaning the *** end can come around on you given the right set of circumstances!
  2. PS Get whatever 94R battery you want but the Maxx got the highest rating from Consumers Report!
  3. Resetting of the clock is the only thing I had to do. I have a fairly high tech charger, didn't bother hooking it up during the changeout.
  4. The PSM light went on at start up and was out at the end of the driveway. You have to reset the clock. That's it. There are lifting straps on both the Moll and the Maxx. Put a foot down inside the the trunk to steady yourself while you lift and lean forward the old battery. Do the reverse on install. The Maxx has a plug for the right side vent. 10 minutes, "piece of cake". John
  5. Do not spend $250 for a Porsche battery. Go to Walmart, get the Everstart Maxx 94R. Perfect fit!
  6. You guys are pissing up a rope! Short of PSE, X-51 headers and air box, add-ons do little and may in fact reduce power! Take a look at 5mm spacers and a 24mm rear stab bar if you have a stick transmission.
  7. I personally believe the 3.6 is a better engine, smoother and sounds better with PSE. The 06-08 997 are some of the best Porsche has ever built! John
  8. Get the H&R 24mm rear bar. Also recommend the 5mm wheel spacers. If you have a standard transmission, that's all you really need for street and occasional track. John
  9. You can't go wrong with Porsche PSE and X-51 headers ( I assume you have a 3.8 with Y exhaust manifold) .
  10. Anything other than rubber bushings will ride harsher and eventially make noise.
  11. Doesn't sound right to me. I have an 08 997 iv'ed owned from new and never added any oil! Only drive about 4500mi. per year so I change the oil once a year. I did change it at 1500mi. after a correct break in. Of course, I believe the late 3.6 ( Middle 06 thru 08 ) is one of the best and sweetest engines of the 40 years and 10 Porshes I've owned. John
  12. The 911 with a rear weight bias oversteers by nature. Porsche has spent many years in taming this tendency. The basic 3.6 C2 with standard transmission and standard shocks will undesteer off the showroom floor. So, without spending a fortune, the easiest fix to more it toward a neutrial attitude is substitution of a larger rear sway bar followed by a good four wheel alignment. This should satisfy the average weekend track guy. I have heard from people who have done only this and dropped 2-3 seconds off their lap times! For what it is worth. John
  13. A lot of people think the 3.6 is a sweeter engine. Try to get a late 06 or newer as they added additional webbing around the intermediate shaft. John
  14. All you really nbeed to do is replace the 19mm rear sway bar with a 24mm. John
  15. Nothing on my 08. Don't forget that the hood is AL and it don't take much! John
  16. The problem is Tool Pants, that for a number of people, this is their first Porsche ( I'm been doing them for close to 40 years, 08 C2 #10). When you put that much money in a car, you want everything to be correct. You hear strange noise, see something, hear something you freak. Relax, most of this is nothing and a one quart overill will not hurt the car! Just my thoughts. John
  17. Thanks to all for your replies. Took the car to an independent shop in Pompano Beach, FL. FOREIGN AFFAIRS, the owner's name is Bob Varela. They removed 1L of oil to bring the level to the correct quantity. They had the car on the lift twice since the only way to remove oil is via the drain plug. It is a trial and error procedure. They did not charge me for the service. The oil removal had to be done and Varela and his shop were a class act. Keep you 911's out of the trees!!
  18. How many miles on the car? Just clear it with 2d and push it it in. Sometimes the syncros are a little "balky". John
  19. It's a German law/TUV thing, only one allowed! John
