  1. Anyone ever heard it IMS bearing made by Casper Labs? Also would these tools work? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Porsche-M97-01-997-Camshaft-Alignment-Tool-Kit-/150733106437?hash=item231864ad05&item=150733106437&pt=Motors_Automotive_Tools&vxp=mtr
  2. K... bought a sachs K70246-01 kit off ebay....$439. Thanks settled. Now for the rear main 997.101.212.00 ? Have I heard something about a specail tool or an allignment tool for this? IMS bearing,..... whats the best tool to take one out. And what happens when an oil separator fails?
  3. AOS? is this the rear main seal? Cause I am getting some leakage back there, But it hasnt left a drop on the garge floor yet. My 996 only has 46K? on it and I got it with 42K on it, So my guess is that previous owner wasnt great with the clutch cause i got an audi with 154K on it with the OEM clutch in it and I put all of them on it with no issues. I was planning on the IMS bearing upgrade/update just for necessary piece of my mind. However I see lots of diffrent "upgrades" for it and a few tools to remove the old one
  4. I have a 1999 C2 996 and when Im WFO and shift from 1st to 2nd, she is slipping for a few seconds and I can smell the clutch burning. I am wondering were everyone is getting thier clutches and about how much. My eninge is all stock... but I dont mind going a little overboard.
  5. Sounds like your thrust bearing (in engine) is allowing for too much axle play. Have someone start the engine and push the clutch in.... watch the crank pull to see if it moves out when they press the clutch in and moves back in when they release. I dont know the tolerances of the crankshaft axle play but i know its tight. You may even place a screwdriver just in front of the pully, and see if it starts rubbing when your freind pushed the clutch in. My 2nd quess would be that someone bent (twisted) the clutch fork while doing the clutch job by just pulling the tranny only and not taping
  6. Well, I bought this wing I figure it would be easier once I got it to figure this out. I found this imprinted into the decklid and again in the wing 99/2001 PORSCHE 996 WING 591518 M 1 On a sticker on it says "fin" its has something hand written that says race or rare..... I cant make out the last two letters I cant seem to find anything though im sure its going to fit now. Here are a few more pics
  7. Sweet Find! Is that list in order of least to most favorite? If so I would think that 914-6 would be closer to the end of the list
  8. http://mashaw.biz/996Coup.asp This is the closest I've found this one the 3rd brake light sticks out and it has a big vent in the middle of the tailbase. The wing throws me off becuase of the to intakes on the end of it. I just want to make sure its going to fit a c2 996 and not be a 993 or a turbo wing
  9. I talked to this guy selling this thing, He said it comes with a grille for the top. He says it will fit the 996 C2 and said he only knows its an aftermarket decklid with wing. I noticed that it doesnt have the whole(s) for intake(s) for the turbo models but I would like to know more about this wing
  10. Here should be 2 pics of the wing/decklid And if I get it does my stock wing/ 3rd brake light fit on top of it?
