  1. Hello: As a follow-up, I took my 1999 996 C2 to the local Porsche dealer. They removed the front bumper to get to the hood latch and after drilling the rivets out they were able to open the hood to replace the latch. They said the spring was broken and it jammed the latch.

  2. Hello: I've spent several hours reading many topics on front trunks not opening and I still can't get mine to open. The trunk didn't open with any warning. I went to the grocery store and when I came back to load the car, nothing.

It reduced the overall exhaust sound level, made the exhaust sound more mellow, and got rid of the slight resonant that I heard before. It's perfect now. It's amazing
  4. This is a copy of an email that I sent to Joe at Fabspeed and his reply. Joe: I recently installed your Fabspeed mufflers on my 1999 Porsche 996 C2 with a manual transmission. Before I installed the Fabspeed mufflers I installed your Cold Air Upgrade. The Cold Air Upgrade increased the intake noise just a little bit in the higher RPM range. I was more impressed with the quicker throttle response due to the lower restrictions. The great news is that when I added your mufflers I was very impressed with the quality of the sound and quite happy with the results. Thank you for making an
