  1. Changing brake fluid out to Castrol SRF on my 997 turbo. From what I understand, this cannot be mixed with any other fluid, including what's in the clutch and ABS reservoirs. From what I'm reading above, the clutch is run with completely different fluid/reservoir, so this should be left alone?? Does the ABS still need to be flushed as well? If so, is the only way to bleed the clutch (if necessary) and ABS through a PIWIS or Durametric or is there another way to ensure that fluid is purged during the flush?
  2. Yikes. I forgot I made this thread. I actually had the conversion done at the end of 2010. My first impression while pulling out of the EVOMS parking lot was "my god, what have I done???? I can't drive this thing!":) Literally only took me a handful of times afterwards to get used to the heaviness. Honest truth, it doesn't bother me at all now. It's most certainly different than my DD (Subaru STI), but everytime I get in the turbo, it's just not a big deal. That being said, if I lived in Los Angeles and had to use this as a commuter car, I may have another opinion.
  3. Sell those rims yet?

  4. V1 Hardwire for 997's with autodimming mirror (NO SOLDERING) Thanks to another 997 owner for walking me through this. This is his mod, I just took the pics while I did it There was a very elegant hardwire thread on Renntech that involved a lot of cutting and soldering.... http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?/tutorials/article/15-v1-switched-power-hardwire-installation/ Yeah....wasn't too comfortable with that. Couldn't believe that no one posted a V1 hardwire using the V1 kit. To my knowledge, one doesn't exist. Well, here it is: Tools needed: Small flathead scre

  6. Hmmm....thanks Loren. I'll have to find out if the setup is some bastardization. But I imagine if every GT2 out there has this, it must be somewhat usable or there would be a lot of pissed of GT2 owners with a very expensive vehicle that's virtually undrivable after a few shifts, no?
  7. Well...maybe I do have a bionic leg.....bionic chicken leg, more appropriately:) I may have been mistaken if I said the power assist was completely removed from the clutch. But I suppose that is part of my question. Does this conversion diminish the power assist or remove it completely? I agree that zero assist would be intolerable just after getting out of my driveway.
  8. Just picked up an 07 TT a few weeks ago and haven't had much seat time, but I've found the clutch to be a bit tricky. Not a lot of feel with engagement. Very close to the floor, but other than that, I just can't seem to get a good read on when it hooks up. Before I got it, I was expecting the pedal feel to be firm, but it was surprisingly very, very light. My Mini's clutch actually feels firmer. I thought I liked the ease of the pedal, maybe still do, but a friend at EVOMS mentioned this 'upgrade' to me and it sounds intriguing. Removes the power assist and gives back more 'feeling' with clu
