kam replied to PJorgen's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I've just installed a seltl of lcamber plates with -2.6 negative camber. It does reduce understeers. My lap time at Pocono without much camber was 1.03 and with the new camber setting I'm at 1.00. Get the TRG plate or GT3 lower control arm.
kam posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Where is the DIY section? There was a section describing how to install the 3rd radiator to the 996. I need that article again so I can remove the bumper cover to clean the side radiators. Thanks
I can't give you any advice on AWE's products but I can tell you that they really do lot's of research and developments. I am a member of the PCA Riesentoter region so as Todd from AWE. I always see Todd testing new products on the track. They also have a dyno at their shop. I personally have a lot of confidence in AWE's product even though I don't have any of them because I can't afford them. If I got the money to do mods, AWE's products will be my first choice. Kam
kam replied to stanm5's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Not only for 2001 and on. My 2000 996 have this issue too.
I would go to the sponsor links to find Suncoast Porsche. They sell OEM parts at the lowest price. I would go to the sponsor links to find Suncoast Porsche. They sell OEM parts at the lowest price. Sorry. It should be the link on the home page: · Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost
kam replied to stevecod's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)The RMS happens in the some 996 engine. I heard more RMS on non-turbo car then turbo. Actually I have not heard of RMS issue on a turbo car. My 2000 has 50,000 miles on the original clutch and it seems working fine so far. It all depends on how the previous owner(s) drive. I have a friend who sells cars and got his father in law and himself a 99 996. One C2 and the other C4. He got both cars at a very low price like high 20's. The C4's motor lose power while tracking at Watkins Glen. There were noises comming from the motor and he bought and installed a factory rebuild motor from BrandyWine Porsche. The cost by BrandyWine was very reasonable. His father in law's C2 found oil in the coolant. The car is still in the shop. I guess when you buy a used 996 you really need to check the history and see who owns it. Most people don't have major problems with earlier 996's. You just have to watch out. Good luck Kam
kam replied to wrljet's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Very easy. You're using existing bolts to install the plate. Jack the rear end up and secure it uisng jack stands. Please the plate just underneath the oil pan and try to match the holes on the plate with existing bolts around the oil pan. You may turn the plate around to find the correct orientation.
kam replied to wrljet's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I think it protects the hoses around that area more than the case.
kam replied to teeerex's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Are you sure those are factory holes?
kam replied to Danyol's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I'm current on my second sets of Kumho tires (cheaper model than yours) and they work fine for me on the street and as rain tires for the track. Don't mix tire brand / model. Use the same model on all 4 corners unless you know what you are doing and for a good reason other then price.
Do you mean the GT-3 front strut mount?
kam replied to Loren's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If you check out club races in the Noreast you will find 3 to 5 996's in C. Just Riesentoter region has 3 996's in the C class.

kam replied to TD in DC's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I can't wait for the answer and hope that the procedure of doing it is not too involve.
