You would have done better to install the flywheel and clutch out of the 04 GT3RS street car. Its a single mass flywheel (~20lbs lighter than stock) and a spring centered clutch. I just did this upgrade on my 04GT3. The engagement is similar to stock and the engine revs much quicker. The cars really should have come from the factory that way. Gert @ Carnewal.com has all you need.
Sloth replied to rockitman's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Not sure about the benefits of the shiftlink alone as I installed the B&M SSK at the same time. Combined with the B&M, it has the same precision feel as a bolt action rifle. IMHO, the main benefit of the billet link is the replacement of the plastic connector that has left a few others stranded on the roadside.
Sloth replied to rockitman's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hey guys... there was only one set screw on my shift link. Wish I had a camera when I did my install.

Sloth replied to Sloth's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for the advice Jeff. Thats probably a good way to do it... especialy considering that the bridge tool will not fit with the B&M. Now to find the bridge tool... is there a part #?
Sloth posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I decided to bite the bullet and do some upgrades. Among those are a B&M shortshifter, Evo Shiftlink, CF shifter, CF handbrake, and CF scuff plates/door sills. I have found a DIY for the B&M and the shiftknob should not be a problem. Does anybody know of a DIY for the Shiftlink and for swapping out the handbrake and door sills? TIA :drive:
Does anybody have any information about a TSB concerning the torque values for the bolts that attach the swaybars to the chassis? Apparantly it is done to prevent a clunking sound from the suspension and seems to occur after track days. :drive: TIA
What would be involved in swapping from the PCCB rotors to the standard steel rotors on a GT3. I understand that the steel rear rotors are 20mm smaller than the ceramics. Can the same calipers be used or would I have to swap them for the proper steel rotor calipers? TIA
Sloth replied to Dranon's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)You are scaring me Loren... no leaks at all on my 2/98 build... knock on wood! :eek:
Sloth replied to Mike in CA's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Point aside... I like the six point belts at the track, but they would be a real PITA to use for regular driving. I hope that someone has the answer on the legality issue, I too am curious now.
Sloth replied to Mike in CA's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I thought that anything more than an OEM type 3 point belt was illegal for road use. On another note... if you are fully belted in with a 6 point belt, I would think the front airbag is of little use b/c the harness is going to keep you firmly in the seat. I guess that the airbag would then become a debris shield of sorts?
