  1. I think a lot of us suffer from a heroin addition of power. I have had 170 HP superbikes and cars in my past including a 996 C2 that I traded in for my 996TT. Best move I ever made. It is a perfect car to tweak with ECU changes, suspension, etc, and you end up with a super car that does everything well. A friend of mine who is a driving instructor has a GT2 that has been modified along with several other hot cars including a 997 GT3 cup car and this is a recurring discussion between us because we both have the heroin addition for power. At the last track day he turns to me after driving my car (he took over for a few laps) and he says “don’t go for more power” it’s fast enough”. So we both agreed, it all comes down to just having a great car that you can flog at the track and on the street to have fun. The GT2 is almost too fast and it’s harder to flog at the track because you have to worry about loosing it and wrecking the darn thing (no all wheel drive and more power!). If you get too much HP, the car become more difficult to drive on the edge, the added HP works against you and the car’s balance. Net result –not as much fun. So my 996 is going to stay just like it is. My suspension will continue to be tweaked, but that’s it.
  2. I do not know about the bezels . I only removed the gauges and the face plates. I have some pictures of how it all looks un-assembled that I can share if that helps.
  3. For those interested in this project, I attempted to do it myself and would not recommend trying it. In addition, the red gauges are too dark and I did not like them once I got them in the car. Without going into all the details, the whole project turned into a mess. I now have a new GT2 silver gauge cluster and love it. My old cluster will be put back to stock one I get it working again (it’s too painful to explain what happened)
  4. I would like to know the answer to this question as well. I can get a full set of mint condition GT3 shocks from a friend ( give away type price so it makes it tempting) but I need to know what issues I will run into installing them on a 996TT.
  5. I have been searching around and I know it should be out there - but I cant find it. I purchased some new red instrument gauges for my 996TT and I just need to know how to install them. thanks in advance.
