  1. thanks, i'll try it myself when I get my ramps in. :)
  2. hahaha thanks guys. My thought here is if I do the install myself and dont like the sound/powerband change/results then I can easily remove it. paying 60 bucks for the rhino ramps and a few hours of my time is not a big deal. If I pay the shop 400 and find that I dont like the headers, guess what? Another 400 to remove. Plus I like working on my car if it is something I can easily do. So bottom line is, just loosen the cats but neither the cats nor the exhaust has to come off? Ive also read that new bolts is recommended, what say the experts? thanks peter
  3. Ive searched and was not able to find any DIY tips on installing just the headers for the 997s. Is this as simple as removing a few bolts and swaping out the old headers or does the cats and exhaust have to come off as well? I bought a set of suncoast headers off a rennlist member and thought i'd try the install myself. The shop wanted 400 bucks for the job. Ive heard it should only take about 1-2 hours to do right? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I plan on buying the rhino (gray) ramps for the job. I think that was recommended by some of the rennlisters. tia peter
  4. Does the kit include the stabilizer mounts? Should I be looking for these numbers in the kit? 996.343.792.12 and 996.333.792.25 THanks in advance Peter Front shocks - 996.343.041.18 are for a MY02. Although the parts list says they can be replaced with 996 343 041 21 (for MY03). Front springs - 996.343.531.19 is correct. They should be marked Green and White. Rear shocks - 996.333.051.22 are for a MY02 (again). Although the parts list says they can be replaced with 996 343 051 26 (for MY03). Rear springs - 996.333.531.26 is correct. They should be marked Green and White. Stabilizer - 996.343.701.04 and 996.333.701.19 (replaces 996 333 701 17) are correct. 996.343.792.12 and 996.333.792.25 are new stabilizer mounts since your new bars are likely larger in diameter. Bump stops and compensation plates can be reused as they are the same. The kits vary so I've seen some with and some without. So the only thing I see in question is the shocks. I do not know the difference between the MY02 and MY03 shocks. Perhaps it is just the manufacturer since the parts list says you can use the newer ones on an older car. <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
  5. I'm trying to order from sunset as well Loren, can you verify that the part number they gave me at sunset is in fact for my 03 6sp coupe. 000 044 500 27 The kit comes with all that you guys have mentioned right? I have the cheapy oem std suspension now.. thanks in advance
  6. Hey split, never got the money/check for the B&M ssk.. If ya changed your mind, ya should of had the courtesy to at least tell me.. :(
  7. I'm taking it in again tomorrow.. I'll mention that to them. I hear the rattling at low speed turns or going over bumpy roads. I think I also hear it when i'm banging the door panel or speaker area as a test. :( I'm going to keep bringing it back until they can fix it.. Such a waste of my time but I'm not going to take NO for an answer.. As a comsumer I have rights damnit.. hahahahhaha
  8. CAn't wait to get mine on.. Still waiting on the dealer to fix the rattling door/whistling window and clanking tranny/flywheel.. If they can't hear it on the test drive with the stock exhaust, I know they not gonna hear anything with a GHL..
  9. What will happen if no adjustments or fix is made? Is it bad for the car if I keep running it like this?
  10. he said the fly\wheel is suppose to have play in it.. :(
  11. Just got my car back..All I can say is they did absolutely nothing.. First they said they tighten a few speaker screws on the right side (which was where the rattle was coming from) I still hear rattling from the door area.. It could be the passenger seat bc I do see it shake alot. The driver side wind noise is still present. They said they adjusted the window by moving it up and out a smudge. I still hear drastic wind noise at 40-55 mph.. Not sure if thats normal or not The rattling/clanking sound he said was from the flywheel which he said was absolutely normal. Odd thing was another c2 pulled into the garage area and as the guy shut off his engine, I didnt hear the noise I had.. So what should/can I do now, Turn up the radio and the noise will all go away? What a waste of time taking it to the dealer..I thought they get paid for warranty work?
  12. Loren, No knocking and I never use anything under 93oct I'm going to trya bottle of that fuel cleaner on my next refill. It could be the ignition switch, let me try to turn the key all the way left the next time to see if I still get the idling ghost..
  13. With all my past and current vehicles, when I twist the key to turn off the engine, that is exactly what I get.. The engine shuts off. But with the p-car there's a second delay as the engine sounds like it's choking or hmm can't explain it.. It just doesn't sound like it's a clean engine shut off. DO you guys get this or is there something wrong with my p-car? COuld it be a weak battery?
