  1. Any suggestions on a good street and track brake pads.... I have used Hawk blue and they are great for the track but they are loud on the street and very dirty I know that this is hard to find but I read of some new pads that can do both very well..... any suggestions......... Manny 2002 996 tt
  2. is it true that to change out a clutch on a 2002 turbo the motor will need to come out with the trans... they told me that there is a bracket that will not let you remove the trans with out the motor it is supposed to be on the top of the motor and trans and only on Turbos.... do anyone know if this is true? regards Manny
  3. thanks Mattntp... I ended up going by a local Porsche shop today.. while i was there a other guy with a 996 turbo like mine showed up and he also had the same noise ... the shop told me that he had a after market light clutch and they said they make that kind of noise... as for the slipping clutch they said that it will need to be replaced ... i plan on tracking the car ,,, they told me that the oe clutch wold work.. i am not to sure about this!!! they also told me that it would take 18 hrs to do the work... they claim that they have to bring the motor and trans down only on the turbo ... is this true.... 18 hrs seem like a lot... i have read on here that it take more like 7 to 8 hrs if you take your time.... Manny
  4. I don't know... i think its stock... i do know that i will need to replace it soon as when it gets on boost in 3rd or 4th gear it starts to slip would a after market clutch made noise when not in gauged? the car seem to have a lot of power .. when you get on it, wow its go's i believe it has some type of flash as it hits 1.1bars quick... my partner has a 2008 turbo and it can't keep up with this car... Any suggestions Manny
  5. Hi , I need some help... i just purchased a 2002 turbo... 37k mile nice clean car.. has some mods,,, FVD exhaust,FVD coilovers, ect... the problem is that when i go to start up the car the clutch pedal is very stiff ... once it starts up it get soft.. i believe that is because the accumulator is bad... i maybe wrong... the other problem is there is a rattle noise ,, when i push the clutch in it go's away.. when i release the clutch it make that rattle noise... it rattle form idle to about 2000 rpm and then it go's away above 2000rpm... it doesn't rattle if the clutch is pushed in... very strange to me as when i have had a thow out bearing go bad on one of my other cars in would be heard and felt when i would push the clutch pedal in... this one make the noise when the pedal is out.. and even make the noise when in gear up to 2000rpm then it go's away.... has anyone you you guys had this problem.......... :o :o Regards Manny
  6. I started bying parts from e-bay 1½ years before I bought the car ( March ´09 ). Parts were complete,eg pads and discs were barely used, but as a precautionary action bearings were changed. Well I think i made up my mind, I am looking for a nice Twin Turbo 2003-2006 ... My c2 is a super nice car but i want more .... more hp and more brakes. thanks for the info...... Manny
  7. Thanks Pete for the info.....i purchased a set turbo brakes but ended sending them back as i later found that i would need a a bunch of other goodies like turbo wheel carriers, dust shields, abs sensors, stub axles and so on ... so i decided that i am leaving the brakes alone , what i think i am going to do is sell this car and buy a T.T. or a gt3.

  8. Loren, they may have something but i didn't find it...do you remember were you seen it? After doing some more searching i have found very little on this subject.... i would have thought more people would have done this conversion.... I read that the rear is a direct bolt on... but the front would require a Twin Turbo wheel carrier and maybe update the abs gear to a TT... is this right? I already have a set of 996 TT big red brakes coming... and i would really like to use them on my car if possible Also would i need to ungrade the Master Cyl. to something else or do you think that the one on the car (c2) would work Manny
  9. Thanks Loren ... i found there web site... i found adapters for 993 to big red and some 911 to big red but nothing for 996 to tt big red brakes.... any other ideas?......... Thanks Manny Sanchez
  10. Thanks Loren,, any idea who would have these kits, ,,, I have just purchased a set of like new tt big brakes and rotors i was told that they would bolt right up but later at an events that i was instructing last weekend down here in Homestead Miami speedway i was told by a local Porsche guy that they would not fit , I called Sunset Porsche parts dept. to ask if there was any way they could fit and they told me that it should fit .. that i may have some problem with the wheels and would need some spacers... i told them that i have a set of 19" they sold me some 5 mm spacers to help with the conversion... I know the the TT has a different offset front and rear than the c2 ,,, would i need some other type of rotors or do i need to change everything to the GT2 front setup and a TT rear. Any help would be great......Thanks in Advance And Loren sorry for the Signature mess up........ Manny Sanchez 2003 c2 Speads DSR
  11. I have a 2003 c2 that i want to upgrade the brakes.. will the a set of 996 tt big red brakes fit on a 2003 c2 i track the car and the stock black brakes just don't cut it ... are there any mods that will need to be done any info would really help..... :renntech: Manny Sanchez 2003 c2 Speads DSR
  12. How can i get more camber from the front struts.. i had installed a set of Champion lowering sport springs that lowered the car by 1.5' all around and just had the car aligned all we were able to get from the front Camber was .9 neg.deg. and for the rear we could only manage to bring in the camber to 2.3 neg deg. if we brought in the rear more we had problem with the the rear toe. i wanted to get 1.5neg camber in the front and 2.neg in the rear all this mostly so i can track the car. its a 2003 c2 great site...
