Wicked 996 replied to goldgun's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)9500ix - great detector if you want a custom install go with the 9500ci
well i was able to get my wires run through. Just an FYI - to access those large grommet son either side requires pulling a good majority of interior parts - side panels, pillars, etc. But once there its easy lol
Wicked 996 replied to kieselba3's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)just be sure on the louver lengths to not interfere with the tire at sharp turn angles - measure how close your ties get at full lock to not make the louvers too long!
Wicked 996 replied to kieselba3's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I did this myself on an older VW turbo when the inter cooler was tucked in there. Just cut long slits with a dremel and give each an 1" cut up on the edge" looks likes this: |_______| Then use a heat gun to heat up the plastic to make it pliable - then push the louvers you made out and when it cools they will stay where you put them. Sorry I dont have pics and I sold the VW :)
Thanks loren - this will help a lot. Looks like there are bog ones on either side of the engine bay. Hopefully they are accessible :)
Doing some stereo stuff and need to run some wires from my engine compartment to the dash. I would prefer not to have to run then under the car and then up (although is there a place to come up into the car from under). I would prefer to come through the firewall (engine) if possible. I cant see much in there so I was hoping someone might know of a hidden unused grommet somewhere I can pass a couple wires through (preferably on the driver side - although at this point I would take either side :) ) Thanks!
Just did this mod last night. Took about an hours start to finish, came out great and passed the 150MPH test :) One thing I did differently is I used the factory plastic body rivets (like the ones used to on the GT3 themselves and other areas on our cars like fender plastic, etc.) They were like $.15 each or so and secure it very well and looks factory installed when done. Thanks!
Wicked 996 replied to DWPC's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)LA is a good place to look for them on the west coast - more of a dime a dozen. I picked up an 02 C2 for 23.5K had 45K miles on it and was in perfect condition with all original records. That being said I could prob sell this car in the bay area for $33K as that's the commanding price around here...
Wicked 996 replied to airedale's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)call K&N. Or measure you OD on the Gruppe M where the filter connects and your height and width and see which one from their list of cone filters will work. they list the spare filter on their site from K&N http://www.gruppem.c.../ram/index.html https://www.gruppem.co.jp/onlinestore_en/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_22&products_id=93
