  1. Thanks for all the kind words. The truth is, I really never should have bought that car, although I was able to pay for it, I would have been in REAL trouble if it ever broke. I had to put a clutch in and did all the work myself in my friends garage and it still set me back $1K. In all honesty.. the Mini is a GREAT car, not fast by any definition. Actually quite slow, but something about it puts a smile on your face when driving it. I'll probably hold off on the 911 until the days comes that I hit a big financial windfall, like lottery or something. And then, probably buy the dream car from my childhood, a nice air cooled turbo. Thank you all, although I have not been a big contributor here, the wealth of information has been very helpful on many occasions. Best of luck to you all! Jerry
  2. That is the one, thanks Loren. I knew I saw it somewhere. I just sold my car and was explaining my audio plans for it to the new owner, I want to give this to him to help him change the amp out. Thanks again! Jerry
  3. Yeah, I had to sell my Carrera. But I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to own one. When I was 15 years old, I had a Car and Driver Magazine, which had an article about the new 930 Turbo. I probably held on to that Magazine for a couple of years, owning a 911 became my life long dream. I remember when my son was a little guy, and we were paying almost all the money we had to formula. diapers and daycare, I saw a white 911 pass while driving my beat up Ford Aerostar second hand mini van. I thought to myself, "One day, it is gonna happen". Well, I had a second kid, my Daughter and everything was going well. I ended up with a good job in IT, my wife has a good job, we are homeowners and we have the best kids anybody could ask for. My son is now 19 and off in the Army, freshly married and getting ready to head to Afghanistan. My Daughter is 16, and a gifted Academic, she had actually skipped grades in shcool, and started full time College at 15 years old... almost Doogie Houser like. The opportunity came, the stars lined up and the win blew the right way, and I was able to buy a sweet black 2002 911, and it was everything I dreamed it would be.. oh what a car! Everybody knew this was THE car for dad, the kids were extra careful in the garage and everybody respected the fact that it was my life long dream car. So my daughter got her drivers license, and she is such a good kid, I took the stretch and bought her a very good used Toyota Corolla. My son, who is living with his new wife at Ft. Bragg in NC is having some tough times, so I have been sending him some extra money and whatnot. As it turns out now, his wife is pregnant and due right as he is scheduled to leave for Afghanistan for a year. I offered to let his wife come live with us while he is gone, I think she will. But the big problem comes in the fact that they only own one car, a Chevy Colorado standard cab pickup which he put no money down and they are horribly upside in. I am sure you see where this is going, they have no place for a car seat, basically no money, so they need a car, and a good one. So, I sold the Porsche... Yes, the 911 is gone. I was able to buy a second hand Mini Cooper for myself, and a very good Toyota Rav4 for my son's new family with the proceeds of the sale. I miss the car, but I guess the part that makes me the saddest is the fact that our soldiers, not just my son, but most all of our enlisted men, are living below the poverty line. My son qualifies for Food Stamps and WIC. As great as it was to own my dream car for a year, I gotta say, you really don't have to look too far to find the real treasures in your life. So... Lets go Motoring?
  4. Oh, sorry Loren. It is a 2002 Carrera with the Bose system. There is a big Bose amp and a little tag a long subwoofer amp attached to it. At one point here I found an old post where somebody (Probably you) posted a wiring or pin out diagram for the little subwoofer amp.
  5. I remember seeing a wiring diagram for a non-MOST Bose subwoofer amp a while back, but can't find it now. Anybody know where it lives?
  6. Just to close this one, I put it on a vacuum bleeder this morning for a few minutes, and ran about a litre of Fluid through, %100 perfect.
  7. My best friend has recently bought a Ferrari F360 Spider, 400hp V8 with F1 transmission. Coming home from the office, from about a 20mph roll, he surprises me by stomping on it, I was behind him, not in the proper gear for maximum acceleration, but I stick it to the floor none the less. He starts to ever so slightly pull away for a second but once my revs get up (remember, I wasn't expecting it), I start to gain on him. To around 80mph I was stuck on him like glue till he backed off. Later I asked if he was giving it everything and he said he was and then commented on how fast my Porsche is. 80hp down, and I can hang right with him.
  8. we did match the clutch parts by number. There is a rubber boot over the slave arm. I don't know about the spring, when we were bleedin the pedal would have to be pulled off the floor after opening and closing the bleeder. I also bet that there is a proper way to bleed this, we were doing it just like brakes, pump a few times and hold, open and close the bleeder, pull the pedal off the floor, repeat.
  9. You mean a shifter cable? if so those looked fine, and shifting is still butter smooth. I might add that the car is driving fine, just crappy slack at the top of the clutch pedal. Almost feels like the slave plunger isn't coming back in all the way.
  10. Recently, I had what sounded like a clutch release bearing go bad in my '02, there was also a weird dead spot in the pedal on the way back up around 70% from the floor. This weekend, I pulled the tranny, replaced the RMS and the IMS Seal and O Ring, I put a new clutch kit, plus actuating lever and hardware in. Everything is working fine, but I still have the weird dead spot. The clutch engages right as the pedal starts to come up from the floor, but at around %70 up, it just goes kinda slack. We have bled the crap out of it to no avail. Could this be a slave or master cylinder problem? Oh, I also found some weird stuff when I took the old clutch parts out, one side of the release bearing was worn way causing it to go cockeyed in the release lever, eventually making the release level come in contact with the pressure plate arms.
  11. I think the best is not when they want to 'race', but when they want to see who can get the farthest ahead in heavy traffic by making some dodgy moves.
  12. Hello everybody, my name is Jerry. I am a previous Porsche owner (2001 Boxster) and PCA member. My best friend and I were Porsche guys, but he up and bought a Ferrari, the good news is that he gave me a sweet deal on his '02 996, which is in incredible shape, AND he just put a brand new set of Michelin Pilots on her! So, the Boxster went to another friend of mine, and I now have a 996. I don't know that much about them, and he bought it two years ago used as well, so the history is a little blurred at this point. I have a few questions, first, where would I locate the engine serial number, I would like to determine if it has ever been replaced (the car has 68K) Second, is this an aero? it has the skirts and looks like an aero, but no rear spoiler. And third, it has the factory Bose sound system, but I think I would like to upgrade the amplifier... anybody done this? Oh, and anything I should look for in mods? this car seems WAY too fast. Another friend of mine has a 2000 with a 3.4 and the difference in performance is remarkable. plus the exhaust sounds a lot meaner than others I have heard. he is a pic. I know everybody expects p-porn from a first time post.
