  1. I was thinking of changing my fuel filter, it's a 2002 C2, 6 speed with 3.6, the car is coming out of hibernation this Saturday on the website, Note: some vehicles do not require a filter, see if your car is listed. http://e-partssales.com/Merchant2/merchant...ry_Code=996main Do I have a fuel filter? if so what is the correct part number. I find it kind of starange not having a fuel filter. Thanks
  2. Depends who is asking, I will sometimes, tell them I drive a Porsche Some I tell them I drive a Nissan Pathfinder, which I do own and use as an all year vehicle. Some people, I tell them that I drive a VW Bettle on Steroids. :)
  3. I have one of these on my SUV, I was thinking of tie wrapping one of these to the plastic oil filter housing, getting the adapter to a spin on filter is pricy, when you only drive the car 5-6 months a year, and only do 1 change a year. http://www.shopfiltermag.com/ I did purchase a magnetic oil drain plug.
  4. Check 6speedonline, there's a GB on now http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/996/163...s-thoughts.html
  5. It's almost time to bring the 2002 C2 out from hibernation, I am switching out the stock cats to 200 cell cats, do I need to completely remove the mufflers to change out the cats, or can I get away with just unbolting the cats from the muffler and headers and switch them? Thanks
  6. The install video is on the LNEngineering site - it includes more than enough detail for the average DIY'er. It's on their site, http://www.lnengineering.com/spinonfilteradapter.html, but Mr. Navarro said it's probably better to view it on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bv8BTItCrF0. It looks so easy, even all-thumbs-me could install it. I thought about adding a spin on filter, but I decided for the amount of driving I do, since this is a summer car, and I will only do 1 oil change a year before it goes into storage, It wasn't worth it to me. The only benefit of putting f
  7. Welcome. I brought a US spec 996 Cab to Canada about a year ago. The Daytime Running light fix is easy and works like a charm. The speedo and dash issue was solved with a quick trip to the dealer (Calgary). They charged $37 to switch the dash to metric. It took about 10 minutes. When you download the manual it will also tell you how to change the speedo reading between miles and kilometres. Good luck. Thanks very much for the replies, I switch the miles to kilometers using the right top stick on the instrument cluster, but the farenhaits stay there. Will the dealer or myself be able
  8. Hi I an Canada with the same car, For your Daytime running lights do this http://www.whiteson.org/boxster/mods/drl/ It's in your owners manual: right top side of your speedo to change a 996/997 speedo to km from miles, turn the little dial to the left and hold for 5 or 6 seconds
  9. Check out http://www.maxspeed-motorsports.com/instal...structions.html They have a PDF file on installing an aftermarket heater for you seat, it show you how to take the seat apart, step by step.
  10. Try 6673 or 6671 Donations are one-time - but many folks do donate yearly. Thanks. Hi Loren Just letting you know, Code didn't work, but I called Becker and they gave me the code over the phone with No Charge :) so with S/N last 4 digits ending in 0804 The Code is 7674 Yung
  11. Hi Loren Happy New Year! I picked a spare CDR 220 that I need the code for Serial Number: Y5060804 Quick question about Donation, is the donation a yearly thing or a 1 time donation, but we can donate every year if wanted to? Thanks Yung
  12. Try 6837 or 6935 Hi Loren I tried both codes, now I got WAIT When you go up and down is it always in two's with the last 2 digits? Thanks
  13. In Canada I would fight the ticket, plus the witness is a friend, so that do he could be lying for the driver. The Police officer should had given the other a ticket for not turning left in safety, because, is up to the driver turning left do do so safely, since he is turning in front of oncoming traffic. Check the highway traffic act where your from. In court the officer usual shows up since he issued the ticket, along with the other driver and the witness, if none of them show, you usually get off the charges.
  14. Hi I have a 2002 C2, 6 speed with the M490 sound system. Does someone have the wiring diagram for this system? I am keeping the Becker CDR-220 I just purchased Focal K2's to use in the dash and Focal 100Ca1 for the rear. Planning to get Focal 13KS for the doors. Where should I mount the crossovers for the K2's? If it is mounted in the trunk, do I need to run new wiring to the crossover to the dash speakers or do I use existing wiring. How good is the stock amp? is it worthwhile to upgrade? Do they make pigtails for this system so I don't have to start splicing wire? Thanks
  15. Hi Loren I haven't lost my code yet, but I purchased a backup Becker CDR-220, so I just want to remove my currrent deck to make sure that this new deck is fully functional. Thanks Yung Here's the info I pulled for the current deck in the 2002 C2 coupe, 6 speed Becker CDR-220 Becker 1 4462 SN: 15002872 24/99 CDP2081
  16. Hi Loren I have a 2002 996 C2, Is the window a common issue with these cars, I have 55K's on this car, should I pick up of these as a spare to have on hand if this decides to go on me, on day? Is this part interchangable between passenger and driver side? Thanks
  17. I'm thinking of putting Sport Cats on a 2002 996 C2 with 3.6 6 speed What is the difference between 100/200/400 cel cats, is one manufaturer better than another? Recommendations? Thanks
  18. Hi I am hibernating a 2002 C2 for winter, should I do an oil change before I store it or when I bring it back out in middle of April? Thanks Yung Disregard Post found the answer, YES, change now
